It's Monday, so I thought I'd take the opportunity to share a bit about my current meal-planning strategy. Life around here is getting busier and busier, but I've stepped up my game! Changing the way I look at meal planning has helped me a lot in successfully getting dinner on... Continue reading

Edible highlights? Hmm . . . I developed a recipe for vegetarian "meatballs" for my husband that were a big hit with both him and the kids. That is rare indeed these days with an increasingly picky kindergartner!

I enjoyed the holiday season this year in between episodes of illness, as the entire family passed around several viruses. I will just say that I am glad that December is over and a new year is underway! I did want to share a gift idea that I came up... Continue reading

There should be a lovely picture of a large, well-browned turkey here. Unfortunately, I began hacking away at carving the turkey in a hurry before actually taking a picture. By the time I realized it of course my hands were full of turkey and I barked an order at my... Continue reading

Well. This is awkward! ;-) I was happily cruising along in the beginning of April, when I got interrupted by Life. Or at least some events in life. Things settled down eventually but by then it had been quite a while since I'd posted . . . . Anxiety and... Continue reading

How does the weekend go by so quickly??!! Right now it's Sunday evening and I am feeling annoyed and unprepared for the week. I've been sick with a cold, and the baby has been sick with a cold and teething. Overall, the whining and crying and clinging and complaining are... Continue reading

I have six weeks and four tests left in this semester (but who's counting, right?!) and one of the things I am looking forward to once I get off this crazy schedule of class and studying is to get more serious about meal planning and preparation. One of the places... Continue reading

I have a lot of studying to do this weekend for a test on Monday, and my dear husband has been trying very hard to help me with this by keeping the kids cared for and occupied most of the day. Bedtime duty with both of them is almost impossible,... Continue reading

Today on the spur of the moment I got inspired to celebrate my Jewish Irish heritage with some corned beef and cabbage. (I dated someone from Ireland for a few months--hey, that counts, right?) I'm trying this recipe. It's in the slow cooker now. It's always such a relief to... Continue reading

In early December we joined Costco. I had considered doing it for a long time but wasn't sure whether it would be a good fit for what we eat and whether it would really save us money. I wanted to look around first but didn't realize that I could do... Continue reading

I feel bad that I haven't posted in so long. I have been very busy and not-just-a-little stressed lately. I think I had posted before that I've started taking classes. Well, Anatomy and Physiology is kicking my behind! It is very intensive and there is a ton of work to... Continue reading

Looks lovely--I'd love one for my cloth-diapered babe!

I hadn't been doing a whole lot of cooking in the past few weeks, and hadn't felt inclined to either. Part of this was that I have been so busy with school in addition to home/kids/etc. Part of it though was simply boredom--I was getting sick of cooking and eating... Continue reading

can be one of the most difficult, demanding and thankless jobs. Fortunately, it has its wonderful moments. Lately, DD#1 and I have been enjoying watching previous seasons of No Reservations together. Sometimes its appropriateness for kids is debatable, but hey, that's how we roll around here. I think it's a... Continue reading

Last week our family was hit by the flu. I was miraculously spared (knock wood!) but both the kids and my husband were sick. Once the kids were past the worst of it DH was still pretty miserable, so I thought I would try to speed him a bit along... Continue reading

I love swedish pancakes! Have you ever tried them with lingonberries? I always stock up on those when I'm in a city with an Ikea! :-)

I had a whole list of interesting topics to post on but the last week has sort of wiped my brain out, so I think I'll just post a bit about what's going on for me here. This past week I started taking a college class in Anatomy and Physiology,... Continue reading

This week's schedule was crazily busy. And of course, after tons of effort to clarify childcare and who's going where and dropping off and picking up and what needs to be packed--the schedules changed due to snow days and cancellations. Luckily, the changes have actually lightened my load, and my... Continue reading
