Curried Lentils

I just found this!  I wrote this about 4 years ago and somehow it never got posted! So I’m going to post it now!  I do remember having these, actually!  But now to make them again!  Also the photo is actually from some lentil soup I made last night!  I couldn’t find the original photo. So if you make it, it won’t look exactly like this!

This evening I was late starting dinner and even then I had no idea what I was going to make. I was feeling very uninspired. I found some sausages in the freezer that I pulled out and had some potatoes in the closet that I cut up into wedges and broiled… but what else to have. That was definitely not going to be enough for my famished boys. I had some salad ingredients, but we are having friends over for a salad bar on Wednesday and I kinda need it for that. Hmmmm Continue reading “Curried Lentils”

Baked Salmon with Spinach and Blue cheese with Lemon Sauce

Last week a dear friend and I got the rare (although would like for it to not be so rare!) opportunity to have a mama date and get dinner together! It’s amazing how much conversation can happen when kids aren’t running around under your feet! It was such a precious time to connect, share our hearts and encourage each other. I was SO grateful for the time! Continue reading “Baked Salmon with Spinach and Blue cheese with Lemon Sauce”

Paronychia

It’s been a while since I’ve had one of these infections. My daughter however, gets them way too often. She is a ‘picker’ and is always pulling off scabs, peeling fingernails and the list could go on! Continue reading “Paronychia”

Vaccinated vs Unvaccinated

Do I dare even open this can of worms? Why yes, I do!…

I will start off to say that we have chosen NOT to vaccinate our children. As the parents of the wonderful kids we’ve been given, we are given the right and privilege to care for them in the best way we know how. With our research, study, and prayer we have decided what we believe is best for OUR family. It is NOT my right or privilege to decide what is right for YOUR family. That is your right and responsibility! Continue reading “Vaccinated vs Unvaccinated”

Pork Tikka Masala

I know, I know. Chicken Tikka Masala is the dish… not pork. But I started making the dish and didn’t have chicken, but I did have pulled pork in the freezer! It had some liver mixed in, but no seasonings added… perfect. It made making this dish that much simpler. Continue reading “Pork Tikka Masala”

Paleo Chocolate Milkshake

This is an old post… that never got posted.  I wrote it when I was pregnant with Avi… it’s crazy to think that was about two years ago.  When I found it this afternoon I was going to rewrite the whole thing and only keep the recipe.  But I wrote it then, and it brought back some memories that have faded.  I had forgotten that I was craving carbs with him and I didn’t remember this was a fix for me!  So I left it the way it was originally written…. read, taste and enjoy!

My Yellow Drink

Lately my posts have been deeper, more philosophical and not super joyful.. Time for a bit of a change. I’m certainly not always in that frame of mind,although it does seem to be more of a new norm for me! Continue reading “My Yellow Drink”

Sausage and Basil Mini Quiche (GF and DF)

We eat eggs almost every morning for breakfast. Occasionally my kids will ask for something different which ends up being steel cut oatmeal bake, grits or gluten free french toast. We all do like eggs, but having something different once in a while is nice. Continue reading “Sausage and Basil Mini Quiche (GF and DF)”

Processing LOTS of Cherries

Over two days I was GIVEN 62 lbs of cherries. 50 lbs were seconds and were small Tartarian cherries and the second batch was 12 lbs of large champagne cherries. Both tasted fantastic and were a huge treat! But to process all of these! There were certainly some late nights involved. But Brian stayed up with me and helped and it was almost like a date night! Working and chatting together… most of the time with a beer in hand! Continue reading “Processing LOTS of Cherries”
