How To Beat A Slump and Get In The Groove

20101017-IMG_7464

Today was the first morning in 2 weeks I woke up without a sore throat! Holla. (literally). Right now I can swallow without any pain and it’s a MIRACLE. A bad flu really makes me appreciate when I am in good health I tell ya. I just need to get rid of this tickly cough […]

The Meal Planning Monster Returns

IMG_1256_thumb

As you may know, I’m not normally a meal planner. I like to cook by the seat of my pants and just make what speaks to me on that day. I’m the same way with my blog posts too. I rarely know what I’m blogging about until I sit down to write and I don’t […]

Carrot Apple Ginger Soup

Yesterday, a few of you expressed interest for the Creamy Sweet Potato Bake recipe, so I thought, why not kick off the Meal Planning Week with this casserole dish? The rainy and gloomy weather suited it well too. Sadly, it was a bust! It turned out bland and the flavours were just off. It had […]

Vegan Enchiladas with Cilantro Avocado Cream Sauce

IMG_5378

Out of all of the recipes on my Weekly Meal Plan, this is the one we were most excited about! I first made vegan enchiladas with ‘cheeze’ sauce almost a year ago and Eric has been gushing about them ever since. I must agree that I really don’t make them enough…and I’m not sure why […]

ABU: Half The Calories, Double The Fun Almond Butter

IMG_5433-2

On Tuesday, Eric said the Enchiladas with Cilantro Avocado Cream Sauce would be the best recipe all week. Today, I politely disagree. :) (And I secretly thought he would be right!)  After making this recipe yesterday, I announced it was the best recipe of the week. Eric rolled his eyes. He just doesn’t ‘get’ nut […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Breakfast Cereal

Check out what arrived this week… 2.5 cubic yards of triple mix soil for the veggie garden. :) Thrilling, I know. After weeks of looking at different types of soils, I went with a triple mix from Van Beek’s. It’s made from composted manure, black loam, and sandy topsoil. I couldn’t find ‘certified’ organic anywhere, […]

A Mother Is…

IMG (3)

A Mother is…selfless in every way. A Mother is someone who lets you cry in her arms after your boyfriend dumps you and tells you that you don’t need a boy to be fabulous. You already are. A Mother is someone who gets up early to make your lunch for school and sneaks in a […]

Easy Tomato Basil Cream Pasta

Eric, Steve, Dan, Shayne, and Steve worked on the deck this weekend and they got so much accomplished! It almost looks like a deck now. :) The weather was what the boys called, ‘Deck Building Weather’. Sunny and just warm enough to be comfortable. The workstation Eric set up…heh View from other end: This is […]

The Day I Tried Moksha Hot Yoga

IMG_5606

We entered the Moksha room and the heat smacked me in the face. 37 Celsius is hotter than I expected it to be. This is HOT yoga, not warm yoga, I reminded myself. Then again we’re just coming out of a long Canadian Winter and I haven’t felt the heat in months, so it’s relative. […]
