I’d sit here for hours and tell you all about the fantastic weekend we had with our family if I didn’t have a kitchen to clean, candy to hand out to trick-or-treaters and a stack of classic Halloween movies to watch cozy by the fire. I’ll share tomorrow, promise! As well as the festive dinner […]
Our family is almost here, Aaron is inflating the blow up mattress and my house is spotless. Zen, people. Plus, dinner was ready before I could type “our family is almost here, Aaron is inflating the blow up mattress and my house is spotless.” I ain’t even kiddin’ y’all. Simple Garlicky Shells: What it took […]
I start a 3-day weekend tomorrow night. And you know what that means? BEAN TACOS. Alright, so maybe it doesn’t really have anything to do with bean tacos. The reason for the long weekend is that our family is headed to town to see us! You know what that means, don’t you? BEAN TACOS. Ok, […]

Aside from the 2 pounds of dehydrated zucchini chips that came from the blimp of a zucchini, Aaron was bit by the baking bug and had a loaf of warm zucchini bread fresh out of the oven by the time I returned from an errand. Martha, who is this man and what have you done […]
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. […]
These little guys are one of the toppings for tomorrow night’s dinner. I can hardly stand it. Any ideas on what might be on the Monday night menu?
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 […]
There’s really nothing I can say here except it’s Saturday morning, the weather is divine, the Hogs play in a few hours and my hair is a mess. I’m so happy.
