Our garden is already absolutely insane. Just look at this. It might not look like much to the naked eye, but I can assure you, it’s pretty tow up. And oops, in need of weeding. This isn’t even the entire thing! We have little beds along most of the fences. Of tomatoes. Of course. Each […]

Remember last week when I made this dish? Well, when I bought the wax beans at the farmer’s market, the little basket was enough to feed at least 14 dinner parties.  So, I’ve been eying the remaining half in my crisper for the last few days, wondering what to do with em, before they grow […]

Mission accomplished! We successfully managed to scrounge up whatever was left in the fridge, pantry and garden for a quick “gettin’-out-of-town-for-a-few-days” dinner. Well, when I say “we,” I actually mean Aaron. You see, all day long yesterday I felt completely dried up on dinner ideas. (After my delicious lunch that is.) On the verge of […]
