Meal plan: week of June 25

Meal plan: week of june 18

Ok, so now it’s somehow properly summer. We had a little false alarm a few weeks back, but now it’s really here. We hit up the Fremont Solstice Parade this Saturday, which is quite a way to ring in the summer if you have never […]

Meal plan: week of June 11

We had a few friends over last week for dinner, which was very fun indeed, and it happened to be on Wednesday, a.k.a. the day I don’t actually have to cook dinner, so I was inspired to make dessert instead. Even though it feels like […]

Meal plan: week of June 4, 2018

What in the world, JUNE. How did that happen? This last week was a total blur of school functions; turns out, if I lose a productive Monday to sunshine and fun with the family, the rest of the week is kind of a shambles. House? Disaster. Refrigerator? […]

Meal plan: week of May 21, 2018

Meal plan: week of May 7, 2018

Today was just straight up a pure summer day, hot and sunny, kids trashed after hours riding bikes and playing in an enormous mulch mountain at the park. It was a very good day, and makes me very excited for all the very good days […]

Meal plan: week of April 30, 2018

Seattle remembered its identity over the weekend and has returned us to a generally grey and damp existence, but the weather lobotomy over the last week was truly glorious. Just when Seattle’s hardy residents are all “enough with the rain and the cold and the […]

Meal plan: week of April 23, 2018

Ohhhh….Spring has sprung, said the bumblebee…. It takes pretty much all of my self control not to burst into this particularly charming preschool song everytime I step out the door these days. Everything is blooming and glorious, not only the pink and white and purple […]
