This is the face of a starving child. I cannot cook dinner fast enough.On the menu tonight, bratwursts, steamed cabbage, cucumbers, and tomatoes. Almost all homegrown around these parts. And now I must waddle with a crying fifteen month old attached to my pants back to the stove.

No Idle Hands Here
We’ve had another full, fun weekend around these parts. The rust bucket Durango retired at the Ford dealership Friday, and Brandon and I did a little happy dance that it did NOT begin belching smoke in the parking lot when they started it up. We pulled away with a 2004 Ford Expedition, pleased with ourContinue reading “No Idle Hands Here”
Whole 30 Day 30… DONE!
That’s riiiight – we made it through all thirty days of no grain, sugar, dairy, alcohol, or beans. And survived! Brandon officially dropped 15 pounds, and I’m hovering around 7 pounds off.

In short, the plan requires cutting out all grains, legumes (including soybeans), dairy, sweeteners, and alcohol for thirty days in order to doContinue reading “Whole 30 Day 7”
Apples to Apples
A few weeks ago I decided to try my hand at making homemade applesauce. Unfortunately for my pot, I forgot that the apples were boiling down on the stove, and I burnt the bottom – both inside and out, since I’d allowed the darn thing to boil over. For ninety minutes. The pot might beContinue reading “Apples to Apples”
Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner
It’s been a while since I made a casserole. My default meals involve lots of dairy. I am the queen of stuffing and cheese. Chicken, stuffing, and cheese. Broccoli, stuffing, and cheese. Rice, chicken, and cheese. Beef, sour cream, and noodles. Chicken, sour cream, and noodles. Bottom line: what can we mix together with sour creamContinue reading “Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner”
