December Comfort

tumblr_lcs4ebc8bx1qdz03r

With weather like this I have 3 words for you: Shredded Chicken Chili. I mean, is there really anything more to say? You know me, of course there is!  A blazing fire, a bottle of red wine, warm blankets, wool socks, a good movie, a hot shower, a snuggly puppy, an abundance of questions for […]

No Vacancy

Alright, there’s just no eloquent way of saying this. There was a cockroach in my yoga pants this morning. And get this, I didn’t even notice until 10 minutes into wearing them that it was paying rent for a space on my thigh. If this isn’t a sure sign that I need a break, I […]

Just Like Mom Used To Make

tumblr_lc25jaZLQL1qdz03r

That little phrase has been the supplier for many a giggle between my sister and me. Any time I ask her what she’s cooking for dinner, without fail her response ends with “ya know, just like mom used to make.” I’m positive she says it to drive me to the nearest noose, but I can’t […]

I Need Some Serious Namaste Up In Here

tumblr_lbyfz9FpRK1qdz03r

So, after all the raking yesterday I woke up to find my rib cage, hips and waist broken. I decided to book a massage for this Saturday and to stretch it out with some after-work yoga. I lit some nag champa, cranked up an old Air album, and within 20 minutes I came back to […]

Hol-ay Mol-ay! (sorry)

tumblr_lbhq5g10Il1qdz03r

Warning: What you are about to read may be disturbing and unsettling to some readers. It has been rated OMG. Until tonight, I’ve never had mole sauce. Please, before you throw your computer out the nearest window, let me explain. I’m not even entirely sure I knew what it was until this year. And I’m […]

Midterm Marsala

The election results are in and it’s no surprise that Chicken Marsala is the clear winner for tonight’s dinner. The prosciutto brought in many mental votes while preparing for this meal. Capers, butter and velvety spinach won by a landslide in the accents department. If the staunch policy of this succulent dish is to promise […]

Wax On, Wax Off

Have you ever wondered why parsnips are sold with a wax coating? Well let me tell you why. It’s to seal in moisture and increase the shelf life. Who knew!? Oh, you did? Oh. Well good thing I learned this so I didn’t end up serving chicken and parsnip wax soup to my husband and […]

Roast Chicken – Check.

tumblr_latiyhTa5n1qdz03r

Yard tasks – check. House tasks – check. Eye roll directed at oversized zucchini – check. Dehydrator works double shift for both harvested peppers and zucchini – check. Never get out of yoga pants all weekend – check. Nap during football game – check. Look at ever growing leaf pile in front yard – check. […]

Green With Curry. I Mean Envy. I Mean Curry.

tumblr_lam79tJFzJ1qdz03r

We’re in the depths of Fall and nothing could be more crisp or colorful. I love my drives around town, especially when the sun rays split through tree branches and radiance bounces around from leaf to leaf, blinding me. Ok, I don’t love the blinding, but I love the color! Each year when the comfort […]

You Won’t Regret It

tumblr_lab255zjua1qdz03r

Around my house I have a little catch phrase that I like to throw out to Aaron when a) I’d like him to do something or b) um, I’d like him to do something. It’s the “you won’t regret it” route. It goes something like this. “Hey sweetie, you should totally mow the lawns. They’ll […]
