It’s official, summer is knocking and it is blackberry month. Technically, every month is blackberry month in our home wether they come fresh or frozen. It would suffice for me to say that our family of four will eat 3 clamshells of berries per day. Usually the berries are mixed but blackberries,
Although every day for me is meatless “Monday” I like to challenge my friends and family who eat meat every day to one meatless or meat free day of the week. It just so happens that Meatless Monday has a nice, catchy ring to it. An example of what our most recent dinners are looking like and so quick and easy to pull together.
Hi, friends! It’s almost winter and Christmas time, cold and snowy. No, really I’m just kidding its actually quite balmy and nice outside so being inside the house making holiday crafts, watch movies, baking cookies and all things that I grew up doing just isn’t happening this year. Don’t get me wrong I would rather sit outside on the porch and read a book or go on a bike ride with the children but its Christmas time all over again. I guess it’s just watching my children have a vastly different wintertime experience than how I experienced winter as a child is … well, bittersweet.
When the winter months roll around please don’t feel like its time to bust out the crockpot and bunker down for a season of protein and potatoes, although I do love some potatoes. This Colorful Warm Quinoa Salad is filled with plenty of raw and crisp fruits and vegetables and the savory yet sweet dressing pulls it all together for one amazing meal or side dish.
Tacos, tacos and more tacos. That is always a request for dinner in our home. I don’t know why I bother to ask anymore because that is a favorite. No complaints here though because I love Mexican Food and tacos AND bowls. I know this has both tomato and avocado which are technically fruits but I just can’t go without calling this a Veggie Taco Bowl.
A trip to Disneyland is something I got to do once I became a mom. Yep, never “Experienced the Magic” as a child partly because I lived in the midwest and both California and Florida were more than a day trip away. Now that I live in Atlanta and it’s a six hour drive and my children are the “perfect ages” we have visited. Apparently the perfect ages are 4-6 years and we fit into that window perfectly.
