Okay, I'm not really meeting my goal for posting this year. But I've found myself struggling for time to sit down. I spend more time working these days, which is great, but I need to develop a better blogging schedule, as I truly do enjoy rambling on and hoping someone is reading it. Anyway, we're … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 46
Quarantine Life Week 45
Oh ya, we are still doing this. I'm hearing we may be able to get those vaccines by the end of summer. I'm cautiously optimistic and at the same time may miss this life. You know, I've kind of gotten used to it. Oh, and I'm agoraphobic, so you know, this is kind of okay. … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 45
Quarantine Week 44
Another week down. Numbers are getting better here, but I guess there's a long way to go to having enough vaccines available. Having K back home has been interesting and mostly good. It also means you'll get to see some of her cooking, as she loves it about as much as I do. She's agreed … Continue reading Quarantine Week 44
Quarantine Week 43
Phew! This last week feels like it was a couple of weeks combined! My lovely Katie (middle child) moved back home. She's been quarantining in a friend's home for about six months, but she was ready to come back. We're happy to have her back, but of course it requires some adjustments when you add … Continue reading Quarantine Week 43
Quarantine Week 42
It's been another week of quarantining and yes, I'm still cooking. This week, my husband looked at the meal plan and asked me very nicely not to change anything about it. I, of course, did, but only with one dinner, and it was a huge hit. Thursday (1/14) - We started the day with poached … Continue reading Quarantine Week 42
Quarantine Life Week 41
Well, this roller coaster is still moving. After last week's events and then the impeachment events this week, who knows where things are going next. But I'm still cooking. In fact, when the world stresses me out, I go straight to my kitchen. So let's review this week's cooking adventures. Thursday (1/7) - I made … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 41
Quarantine Life Week 40
Wow, just writing the number 40 is shocking. But they say the end is in sight or there's a light at the end of the tunnel or some other cheesy way of placating the people who are going a little crazy. Honestly, I kind of dread the "return to normal" idea. While I am intrigued … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 40
Coming to you live from…my kitchen. Christmas 2020.
Christmas was a little different this year, but we still managed to make some cherished memories and great food.
Merry Vegan Christmas!
Not being able to cook a big dinner for my family and friends because of Covid definitely sucks. However, we have found a few ways to cope this year. One of my major ways is to prepare a full dinner for my vegan daughter, Mel, who lives just a few miles away, and deliver it … Continue reading Merry Vegan Christmas!
Quarantine Week 38
We are the point where a woman could have gotten pregnant and given birth, or be about to give birth, during this pandemic. Sorry, the count of weeks just brought this to mind. I almost feel like we are all feeling like a pregnant woman in her last trimester, hopeful and yet still totally terrified. … Continue reading Quarantine Week 38
