My Weekend + Lots of Recent Eats

My Weekend + Lots of Recent Eats

Happy Sunday everyone! I’ve had a really relaxing and low-key solo weekend. I watched Where The Crawdads Sing, spent lots of QT with the pups, got to the gym to lift on Friday and Saturday, had a massage, watched the UGA/Kentucky game and attended the loveliest chakra light and sound bath. Overall, a very much needed self-care weekend. I also shopped for a Thanksgiving meal to donate to the Charlotte Rescue Mission. They collect these boxes of ready-to-go Thanksgiving meals to distribute to local non-profits and Title 1 schools. They had an urgent need this year totaling over 4,500 boxes...

Food and Growing

Food and Growing

This growing season has been a delightful experiment trying, not only new fruit and veg, but new plants. While the garden is still in the early stages (year 2), perennials are beginning to establish and the original garden design tweaked to accommodate new preferences of placement and direction as I get used to the space.

This year, some crops have been more successful than others, but the...

The mix includes orange, papaya, mango, ginger and turmeric and I’ve been adding frozen banana, peaches, pineapples and spinach and blending it with coconut water. It’s so fresh and light. One morning I drank one with a leftover biscuit that I toasted and...

Autumn soup, hummus, and tabbouleh 9/30/22

Autumn soup garnished with bacon Tonight we dressed up our leftover Autumn soup with a strip of bacon each. I made a double batch last week which makes about 10-12 servings. The recipe below is the full fat version. I use about 1/4 of the butter and cream recommended and it still tastes delicious. In addition to our bowls of soup we also had some store bought hummus and pita plus I made a tabbouleh salad. Hummus and pita with tabbouleh

Recent Eats: 14 Dinners and 4 Desserts

It’s time for part two of my recent eats round up (here’s part one, breakfast and lunch). I have 14 dinners and 4 desserts for you in this post. Lots of good dinner ideas here and one ice cream flavor that you absolutely must try. DINNER This was a very delicious and healthy dinner that was ready quickly using things I had in the freezer. I defrosted a tuna steak from ALDI, seared and sliced it. I served it over a bag of Trader Joe’s riced cauliflower stir fry to which I added extra frozen edamame and some coconut aminos....
