A project to share

Oh there is so much living and thinking and doing and reflecting and creating and…Good Things going on! (Yes, I remain ‘away’, this is just an announcement of sorts) On this Monday I want to share this with you and invite you to participate (locally or as a project in your own zone) as I … Continue reading

sustainable food yards

Locals who are interested in gardening and real food growth should totally check this out! I’m registered and hoping some familiar faces come along with me.

For so many reasons… not-totally-unhealthy brownies

There are many words for the past 5 days or so. They include vomit and “are you kidding me?!” and sleeplessness and mothering alone. They include moments of regret. Harsh tones. Attitude before acceptance. Hands up in the air and pulling at my hair. Eyes looking towards the Good, for the Good…and hands holding on … Continue reading

craving or comfort? ;) (and a sweet little recipe)

Snow had been falling all day. Mild temps. The current usable vehicle was in the shop for an inspection. The ‘new’ vehicle was somehow unable to get out of the driveway or through the cul de sac with any amount of snow. The boys had napped for too long and needed some air. And…this mama … Continue reading

Crazy Night Recipe #1

You know those nights (or months…) where supper time arrives and you just don’t know what to put on the plates? That was tonight. And every night this month. Yikers! Tonight, Dea’, the cooker and baker and ohh-i-love-food creator, was at a loss…again. Reviewing our day I knew we were higher on the carby/oaty side … Continue reading

food instead of thought

I wanted to get ahead with some food prep’, and so spent the day chopping and grilling and putting things away for another day on the table. A few new things found there way into our menu, and I just have to recommend them! Amazing zucchini-based hummus—so clever! A girlfriend gave me a sample of … Continue reading

at the end of the day…a few more pics

(For those days when the kitchen is just too hot for an oven, and there’s gorgeous romas and peppers and basil in the garden, and that ball of fresh mozza in the fridge, and the pregnant mama just neeeeds a quality pizza! 😉 )

The Gleaners

“And she said, ‘Please let me glean and gather after the reapers among the sheaves.’…“Let her glean even among the sheaves, and do not insult her. Also you shall purposely pull out for her some grain from the bundles and leave it that she may glean, and do not rebuke her.” (Ruth 2) — An extra zucchini, passed along.
