Okay, this week is going to get truncated by a day and there will be no week 99. I ran off to Mexico and I will post a separate blog on that adventure. Week 100 will also be truncated for the same reason, so I'll do one blog for those two weeks with a little … Continue reading Food Dairy week 98 (2/10-2/16)
I'm going to be honest. The photos from this particular week look like a teenager's food diary. This is definitely not going to go down as my healthiest week of food posting. So there were taquitos from the freezer. My husband and I sometimes settle on this when it's been a particularly long or stressful … Continue reading Food Diary Week 97 (2/3-2/9)
Alright, I've been totally awful at posting so far this year! I did some traveling, but that's not really an excuse since I totally had time to write on my adventures. But let's dive in and catch up on what we've been eating around here! This week my husband found purple cauliflower and fontina cheese … Continue reading Food Diary Week 96 (1/27-2/2)
I'm officially done with my cooking break! I still have my husband help out with things like getting the instant pot from its storage place on top of our fridge to the counter and anything else that involves heavy lifting, but I'm back. That said, we started this week with take-out. We were really craving … Continue reading Food Library Week 95 (1/20-1/26)
This was my second week of my mini-break from cooking. We did a lot of leftovers and a lot of take out again. Okay, it was not a lot of take-out, but more often than I prefer. Like, I know what I put in my food and where the foods come from for the most … Continue reading Food Diary Week 94 (1/13-1/19)
So several weeks ago, I decided I wanted to make paella. My husband and I drove all over Chicago looking for wild gulf caught shrimp. Seriously. We hit like 6 different places. Ultimately, we found them at Whole Foods. We also found Key West shrimp, which we ultimately bought because they were the size we … Continue reading We have Shrimp!
So, I went on a "break" from cooking at the beginning of 2022. No, this was not a much needed break from meal planning and preparation. My shoulder was injured and I needed to not be standing in my kitchen, chopping, stirring, mashing, and picking up all manners of heavy appliances and such. So the … Continue reading Food Diary Week 93 (1/6-1/12)
Okay, I've officially decided to stop relating this food diary to Covid. Covid has and is exercising control over too much of life. I'm ready to move on. No, I'm not one of those people who have decided to pretend it's over or not happening, but I need a few spaces where I don't need … Continue reading Food Diary Week 92 (12/30-1/5)
Well, things are a little different again this year. Last year, we had no one over and I made a whole meal and dropped it on my Mel's porch. And I did a google meeting for family and friends and made my husband and I Cornish hens with fixings. This year, we had all three … Continue reading Thanksgiving 2021
So, it's January 26th and I'm just now posting this annual ode to a new year. This feels a little like this area I know where you drive into Missouri and they wait until you're like 100 miles in before you see the welcome sign. But I'm going to just dive in. Last year, I … Continue reading Hello 2022!
