Wholly Guacamole

Last week, Wholly Guacamole contacted me to review some samples. I enthusiastically responded, and within two days, this arrived on my doorstep… A slew of chip-dipping products! Unfortunately, my queasy pregnant belly wasn’t really up for a taste test today, so I brought them to my sister-in-law’s house for snacking on during Sunday football afternoon. … Continue reading

Festive Friday

In the 3rd grade world…we took advantage of the last (school) day in October, and celebrated in style. We started out the day with a spooky Halloween story writing prompt, followed by a trip to the farm. We couldn’t have asked for a more gorgeous day…the weather was perfect and we spent all morning and … Continue reading

Turkey Stroganoff

I haven’t cooked dinner for myself or Meeker in weeks. Maybe even a month. But that all changed today. I had a hankering for something comforting – so I browsed soup recipes, but then beef stroganoff popped into my head, and I decided to make turkey stroganoff because I like turkey more than I like … Continue reading

In The Oven

…I’ve got a bun. I’m 3 months along, and couldn’t be more thrilled! I hope this gives some explanation as to my unexplained weekend blog hiatuses (I’ve been sleeping), my lack of workout postings (I’ve been sleeping), and my resurgent love of bread (It’s literally the only thing I can keep down). Building this little … Continue reading

Faster than delivery

I made 2 pizzas in 25 minutes flat this afternoon. Faster than I could have picked up the phone and ordered delivery. It helped that I had some leftover toppings from my pizza party, but still. This pizza is fast. Step one, assemble the crust – about 4 minutes. (The recipe makes 2 salad-plate-sized pizzas … Continue reading

Pizza, A Race, and Kombucha

I’ve had a busy weekend! Busy with fun things, though. That always makes a difference. On Friday, I had a dinner party for a few friends. I actually had one more friend than this, but she didn’t make it in the pictures, sorry Em! We made our own pizzas! I made 6 little crusts using … Continue reading

Super Salad Eater

Confession: I’ve eaten lunch at the same restaurant 2 days in a row. Lettuce, carrots, jicama, zucchini, carrots, corn, peas, beets, mushrooms, garbanzo beans, sunflower seeds, raisins, broccoli, olives Do you have a Sweet Tomatoes near you? If not, I’m sorry for you. Meeker’s serious eating face. He was a little grumpy starving at this … Continue reading

Scones before the dentist

Jenna’s 15 minute oatmeal scones saved my life this morning. I woke up wanting nothing but a freshly baked breakfast. The problem is that I woke up at 7:30am, and I have to be at the dentist at 8:30am. So I stumbled out of bed and got right to work. Whenever I start to cut … Continue reading
