Our summer garden produced an obnoxious amount of produce today. While I was tactfully telling the garden that Halloween was next weekend, Aaron was tactfully telling me to chill and enjoy the free food. Men. When I say obnoxious I’m talking about a zucchini the size of a canoe, enough scotch bonnet peppers for 87 […]

  It’s always so nice to come home after a long day to find my husband busily stirring around the kitchen, various spice jars open, the rice cooker buzzing away and a simmering pot on the stove releasing scents of comfort. Of home. Of me not having to lift a finger. Tears I tell you. […]

tumblr_lafsnkkBau1qdz03r

Last night a girlfriend came over and we ate cheese.  A lot of cheese.  There was much of the dipping into the cheese.  Don’t worry, we ate our vegetables.  We coated them in cheese.  We had good, nutritious bread too.  Soaked in cheese.  We were this close to dipping any and all household objects into […]
