It’s about time I did another meal round-up. Here are some of the things we’ve eaten recently.
This week we’ve got the whole gamut: traditional Easter dinner complete with ham, veggie burgers, epic s’mores, and a vegan dinner.
I am so excited that it’s getting warm enough to camp again! Below are the meals we ate for our most recent backpacking trip – a three day, two night affair in Canyonlands.
We start the next dish details round-up with a meal you’ve already seen here before. (Full disclosure, I am eating a microwaved chimichanga from the freezer section while I type this. Not all our meals are well-rounded or glamorous.)
Back in February of 2020, we went on a spectacular trip to Costa Rica. I’ve thought about that trip a lot over the last year. We’d initially thought about going over our kids’ spring break in late March, but the cheapskates in us decided to just take the kids out of school and go when… Read more »
It was a celebration week at our house, which meant a greater than normal amount of desserts, so get excited!
Another week has flown by. Here are some highlights from what we ate this last week. This was one of those weeks where we ditched our plans more than once for takeout or warming something up from the freezer. Some weeks are like that, but even with the upsets we still made some good things…. Read more »
Welcome to our first ever, “Last Week’s Dish Details!” We aren’t one of those blogs that pumps out posts on a regular basis and we definitely tend to be inspired seasonally. (Can you tell this blog is just a hobby?) We do cook food for ourselves every day though and most of it is pretty… Read more »
Hi There + Why You Should Use Pastry Flour in your Pie Crust
Hi there. It’s been awhile. Life threw us some curveballs last fall and it just now feels like we’re clawing our way up for air. In August, Noel broke his arm and I tried my hand at being a middle school English teacher while a teacher was out on leave. We barely survived juggling all… Read more »
A few new recipes for our email followers
Hey email followers. We discovered that a bug with our new recipe plug-in is causing emails to not be sent out for new recipes. Terribly sorry about that. Here’s what you all missed in the mean time: S’mores Cheesecake Raspberry Dark Chocolate Dutch Oven Cobbler Baked Eggs We’ve got a few new recipes in the… Read more »
If you follow us on Twitter or Facebook you probably saw all the mouthwatering baking we were doing last week in preparation for National Cheesecake Day! One of the prettiest ones (and equally delicious, this one has both looks and personality) was this s’mores cheesecake. We actually developed the s’mores cheesecake a year ago for our… Read more »
We, as with many families, participate in the Mother’s day ritual of breakfast in bed. This year Audrey, as usual, was kind enough to wait patiently for me to complete the meal and deliver it. Upon receiving it, she pretended to enjoy eating a meal where any shift in her posture could send a mug of hot chocolate and greasy… Read more »
Lessons From a Broken Dishwasher
Over the years, a few friends have told me they hated cooking, but didn’t mind doing dishes. We’d joke about making an arrangement where I’d feed their family everyday if, as payment, they’d clean everything up afterward. It’s no secret that dish washing isn’t a beloved chore at our house. This is the Dirty Dish… Read more »
Eating with Kids, Not Like Kids
This post is really just a list of special considerations for those with kids that can be added to my Meal Plan Like a Boss post. As much as I wanted my kids to be extremely cultured when it came to food and despite my best attempts, they are still kids and still finicky about… Read more »
Meal Plan Like a Boss
I was recently asked to teach a mini lesson on meal planning for a church activity. Turns out I have a lot more to say than my allotted 5-10 minutes slot so I thought it would make an excellent blog post. Specifically, my topic was meal planning for small children, but since all people eat,… Read more »
Taking Meals to New Moms and the Sick (or Otherwise Afflicted)
It’s been awhile. Let’s just blame the fact that we recently switched hosting companies and all our pictures turned into boxes with question marks and no amount of coding voodoo was able to make them magically reappear. Since this blog is just a hobby it’s taken us awhile to plod through manually updating all the… Read more »
Rainbow Scrambled Eggs
Our breakfast routine doesn’t have a whole lot of creativity. There just isn’t time for it, at least not on weekdays. Every weekday follows roughly the same pattern. There’s an excessive amount of nagging directed at our children to get out of bed, to go to the bathroom, and then to get dressed. This is… Read more »
Burnt Almond Fudge Ice Cream
Going to grandma’s house is always a treat, but one of the things I liked best about visiting my grandma as a kid was that she bought high quality ice cream. There was always at least one flavor of Snelgrove’s in her freezer. When I was little my favorite flavor was Canadian Vanilla, but as… Read more »
