What’s for dinner: Whenever

I’ve lost track of the days. Last weekend was my daughter’s 3rd birthday party and this week has just kind of disappeared. I keep taking pictures of stuff and then forgetting to write about it. So here’s a few that were worth noting. Above, my not as lovely version of Framed Cooks’ Fettuccine with Leeks … Continue reading

What’s for Dinner: Wednesday

Today is the husband’s birthday, and he requested his favorite dish, Tagine of Lamb and Apricots in Honey Sauce.It’s seriously delicious. I’ve never blogged it because it doesn’t feature CSA fare, and is totally unchanged from the original recipe. I’m sure I could throw in some sweet potatoes, or leeks, or something from our CSA … Continue reading

After many experiments, this is my favorite formula so far: 3 cups old-fashioned oats 1 c shredded unsweetened coconut 2 … Continue reading

Hatch Mac and Cheese

It’s Hatch chile season and our local stores are overflowing with roasted peppers and delicious, hatch-enhanced products. I’ve seen chile mac and cheese at restaurants, but I decided to fake up my own version and it was delish. I know, I’m cheating by buying delicious Hatch peppers instead of using the ones in my CSA … Continue reading

Yogurt, Granola, and Some Thoughts on Food

Fair warning – this has nothing to do with our delightful CSA box.  I’m feeling very accomplished because I made my own yogurt and my own granola.  Then I fed it to my cloth diapered, still breastfed toddler before we went to mama/baby yoga class.  I’m just a pair of hemp underpants away from buying … Continue reading
