Since the weather has gotten cooler, I've been on a tea-drinking kick (decaf of course since I'm breastfeeding). And I have a new tea-drinking buddy-- Ollie. Just out of curiosity (after I had already given him tea several times), I looked online to see what the web world says about... Continue reading

I just read this interesting article from yesterday's New York Times. Thought I'd share. It really hit home for me because there are so many things I do to try and be eco-concious. I cloth diaper my baby (part-time), I hang laundry out to dry, I use CFL lightbulbs, I... Continue reading

Last night while chopping veggies for dinner I was thinking about blog topics. I've had a few ideas swimming around in my head, but it all came together when I realized that Ollie had dragged his stool into the kitchen to see what I was doing. I showed him the... Continue reading

I don't think this needs much of an intro...I watched it for the first time a few years ago and found it inspiring. And after watching Hoarders the other night (I know, ewwww), I wanted to check it out again. So here it is, The Story of Stuff. She's got... Continue reading

(last week's balsamic pork chops, black bean/corn/tomato salad, and garlic naan) It takes a bit of time and creativity, but I've been consistently planning our weekly menus for the past few years. It helps me stick to my grocery budget and also (most of the time) eliminates those "OMG it's... Continue reading

There are a few food blogs that I frequent and I wanted to share them. They're all kind of different-- some are super-focused on vegetarian, local, whole foods...and others, well, let's just say the photos have a tendency to make me drool a little. Homer Simpson-style. We try to eat... Continue reading

Well, I didn't get to that money-saving monday post yesterday, so here it is: One of the easiest things to do to save money on your grocery bill is to buy less meat (or no meat, but let's not get ahead of ourselves). We've been working on this for a... Continue reading

We haven't been home since last Wednesday. Between doctor appointments, fairs, and visiting grandparents I'm now facing a huge pile of laundry and haven't kept up with the blog. So here's a photo from Saturday, and I'll post my money-saving monday ideas later. Ollie and Bristol Continue reading

I'm going to try something new. I think that having themes for particular days of the week will help me be a little more motivated and organized with my blog. Perhaps it will help me keep track of what day it is also :) So here goes: Monday: Money-Saving Monday... Continue reading

Many of you may have read this before, but I just came across it again and since much of this produce is in season right now or will be shortly, I figured a refresher would be just the ticket! I keep a copy of this list in my wallet in... Continue reading

One of my favorite herbs to grow in the summer (and inside during the winter) is basil. It's so versatile and as long as it's got water and sunshine it seems to be pretty easy to grow. Since my basil is in full swing, I thought I would share some... Continue reading

This coming Saturday is the National Wildlife Federation's "Great American Backyard Campout." I found out about it through my friend Kelly, who sent an email a week or so ago inviting us to camp out at the lake with them this weekend. Needless to say, I'm super excited that there...

The other night we had a delicious cobb salad for dinner, and I wanted to share. The joy of cobb salad is that you can put just about anything you want on it, it's nutritious, and filling enough to eat as a main dish! Also, the protein items that you... Continue reading
