Visiting New Orleans and our people for the first time since our move to CT 6 months ago.
Hi friends, I have so much to tell you about. Life is getting interesting, and the world is my oyster. Let's begin. I've decided I prefer to eat mangos and peaches. Only mangos and peaches. Forever. You can give me other things if you camouflage it. In mangos and peaches. Scratch that. I hate mangos and … Continue reading 9 Month Pook: An Update from Charlie
Due to a bout of Carnival Season depression, increase in blogging/recipe testing/photography for work (yay!), and general life activities, Meal Monday has been tossed to the curb for a while. And probably run over a few times. I may hop back on it soon, but for now I wanted to share this quick and easy … Continue reading Meal Monday… Okay, Snack Monday.
Dear Charlie, I know I say this every month, but... How the heck are you 8 months old?! Your 1 year birthday is breathing down our necks already, and I can't decide if I should be shouting my joy from the rooftops, or crying on the floor in the back of my closet. I'll probably … Continue reading 8 Month Pook – A Letter to Charlie
Hey friends, Pook here. Just checking in to dish about life right now, because it's great. I started music classes this month, where I continue my attempts to convince everyone that I'm a turd. Momma makes sure I nap and eat immediately before, to no prevail. Nice try, Mom. Swim classes are bad. Ass. … Continue reading 7 Month Pook: An Update from Charlie
Not to toot my own horn here, but I've been on a roll with finding badass new recipes lately. And here I am to graciously share them with the world (and by "world", I mean the 3 people that read this blog, which includes my mom and grandma). On Tuesday, I also worked with movers … Continue reading Meal Plan Monday – Week 6
Last week's food sitch started out solid. Then after Tuesday it pretty much went downhill. We got the new apartment Friday, so most of our time was spent packing between work days. Then there was a lot of snow on Thursday. And then again on Sunday. And why would I want to go grocery shopping in that? … Continue reading Meal Plan Monday – Week 5
Last week marked the last full week before we get the new apartment. Which means it's also the beginning of living in a sea of boxes and not knowing where the hell anything is. This week I plan to get by with the crockpot and maybe 1 pan... so last week's dinners were the most normal … Continue reading Meal Plan Monday – Week 4
Friends, cross out our info in your address book (Am I the only one under the age of 60 who still keeps an actual address book these days?). We're moving. Again. We started out totally into our current apartment. It was cute. Newly renovated, but in an old house. 1300 square feet, which seemed doable. Turns … Continue reading Another Move (Eye-roll)
I'm proud to say this week's meal recap is a little better than last week's. Of course, because I actually made food more often, I didn't get around to taking many pictures. Can't have it all, I suppose. Monday: Spaghetti with lentil sauce (no recipe). Monday is pottery class night, so I started boiling some lentils … Continue reading Meal Plan Monday – Week 3
