I look at the clock and it’s 5:43am. Meeeeeeeoooooowwwwwwww! Meowwwww. Feed meeeee-ow. Wake up. Meow. Meow. Meow. Meowwwwwww. ‘Sketchie!!!’ Meow…. Somehow I manage to […]

I wait all year long for local strawberries to make their brief appearance and when I finally see them at the market and in the grocery stores I tend to go a bit crazy. I hoard them. I freeze them. I go to Strawberry festivals. I make Strawberry Banana Soft Serve. I make Strawberry Shortcake […]

This weekend, we went on our first summery hike of the year. The weather was warm and the sun was shining. It was our first hike of the year that we didn’t think we were going to: 1) freeze to death, or 2) sink 3 feet deep in the mud. I didn’t even need a […]

Man, I’m feeling bummed right now. I would guess that my mom is too based on her tears when I dropped her off at the airport this morning. She starts to cry, then I start to cry…it ain’t pretty! I think I even saw a nearby taxi driver shed a tear. We always have such […]

The name of the game before mom arrives? Clean House :) Eric is a big list guy so he always makes a big list for us to cross off when we do a big top-to-bottom house clean. It always makes me laugh when he gives me a list! Mom was very impressed with the renos […]

There’s nothing more entertaining than a grown man wearing a pair of Crocs, a coordinating Mastercraft tool belt, while using power tools. He’s a keeper, for sure. :) heh We’ve been plugging away at the deck each night this week. By the time I pick up Eric from the train station and we have dinner […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]
