This post is coming out a bit later because life has been very interesting the last couple of weeks. I'll talk more about that in Quarantine Life Week 21. But wow! 20 weeks in quarantine. That's five months! At this point, I think we have adjusted to this lifestyle. We've stopped talking about when things … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 20
Falling behind on these journal entries these days. I'm not even sure they are that interesting anymore, but I keep telling myself they'll make for an interesting read 20 years from now. I may be lying to myself. Thursday (7/9), I didn't take any pictures. Okay, I took one picture of the 10 year old's … Continue reading Quarantine Week 16

Thursday (6/18) … Continue reading Quarantine Week 13

We are still going on this quarantine ride. I feel like this diary, along with my calendar I use to menu plan, will probably be souvenirs we have to explain to our grandchildren someday.
My journey with bread baking continues to be fascinating. I've had some failures. I've had some successes. I've had a lot of fun along the way and I feel confident enough to try this crazy thing.
I love learning about different ingredients and exploring the ways you can cook with them. In this entry, I am reviewing different ways to cook and use eggs.

Don't get me … Continue reading The Semi-Vegan Plunge
