Sugar Plums

Sugar Plums

‘Tis the season.   I admit that I’ve been feeling frazzled lately. I’m not entirely sure why, but since coming home from Disney last Tuesday night I’ve just been running from one end to the other and am finally looking ahead with a bit more […]

Sunday Somethings

Sunday Somethings

Hello, Sunday.  Gosh, I wish I was still at Disney. I say that every time I come back, but who wouldn’t want to just live in Neverland? But, duty calls and I did miss my Crawley, so we’re back at it. Also, it snowed yesterday! Also, […]

Sunday Somethings

Hello, Sunday. Hello from Disney! Mom and I are on our annual Christmas pilgrimage to the House of Mouse, and we’ve got Tomato and Watermelon also here to share in the fun.  As such, nothing is coming out of my kitchen this weekend, but with […]

My Favorite Things: 2017

My Favorite Things: 2017

Back to work, back to reality. Those four day weekends really get ya, don’t they? It just breeds a permanent desire to sit around in cozy clothes, eat allthecarbs and watch musicals for the next month (we watched both The Sound of Music AND White […]

Sunday Somethings

Hello, Sunday. Boo, the weekend is over. It was a good one here: food, family, and relaxation.  Three kinds of dessert (pumpkin pie, raspberry pie, ice cream cake). Life is good. Life is even better because I’m heading out for our annual post-vacation Disney trip […]

Turkey & Sweet Potato Enchiladas

Turkey & Sweet Potato Enchiladas

Who’s ready for Thanksgiving?! So I know you’re all probably focused on what to make tomorrow, but I’m here to tell you what you should make the next day with all those leftovers. You know, when you’ve already eaten all of the stuffing and you’re […]

Monday Musings

Monday Musings

Good morning, Monday. How was your weekend? I’m sorry we missed each other.  I was in Chicago for work this past week and have been seemingly playing catch up since.  To top it off, Crawley gets super clingy when I’m gone for any long period […]

Microwaved Baked Apples

Microwaved Baked Apples

What a week, what a week! As the story goes, before we all settle into a nice three-day week next week, there is much work to be done! Not only is work being work, but Thanksgiving tends to require lots of planning, and pre-planning some […]

Sunday Somethings

Hello, Sunday! Gosh, I feel like the rest of this year is flying by like the speed of light. We’re almost at Thanksgiving and then before we know it, it’ll be NYE.  Time, time, time…see what’s become of me. On that note, I went to […]

Pumpkin Galette

Pumpkin Galette

We made it to Friday and with that comes the end of our Thanksgiving ala France. To remind, we’ve made: Homemade Green Bean Casserole Sourdough Leek Dressing Mustard Thyme Roasted Turkey Breast and might I suggest and oldie but goodie to tie it all together, […]


Oh, The Places You'll Go

See the World: A Day in Delft

See the World: A Day in Delft

I hope you enjoyed our little walk through the tulips.  I’m still having a hard time deciding which picture to enlarge and frame (because, how could I not?).  What do you think? Anyway, continuing with our travel tale, we left our bikes in Edam and […]

See the World: Our Dutch Tulip Trip

See the World: Our Dutch Tulip Trip

After I don’t know how many years of getting bypassed on the trip wish list, The Tulip Trip actually happened! For years, Lettuce, Tomato and I talked about repeating our Oktoberfest2010 biking Bavaria through the tulip fields of Holland, but boyfriends and jobs, and hiking […]

See the World: Toronto Layover

See the World: Toronto Layover

Trip recovery is hard, and I made it harder with a quick day trip to Chicago on Sunday because I really know to go get over jet lag. With an 8-hour round trip road trip, obviously. Getting back into the swing of not having the […]

Eat the World: Chicago

Eat the World: Chicago

Chicago is a great city for so many reasons, but I think it really stands out on dining. It’s the reason that I left 10 or so more pounds (let’s be real, 15) heavier than when I arrived. Some of it is no doubt age.  […]

See the World: Québec City

See the World: Québec City

Hello!  Let’s take a walk through Québec, shall we? Mushroom and I decided to spend a couple days away from Montreal, and so really early one morning we took the three hour train, and ended up in what only can be described as a fairy tale. […]
