Recipe: Vegetarian French Onion Soup

This French Onion Soup recipe is so easy to make and absolutely delicious. It’s a little different from most French onion soup recipes because it uses soy sauce instead of beef broth – though we aren’t still doing a Vegetarian diet, I actually prefer this version to the traditional recipes. It’s also one of the most inexpensive meals in my repertoire as most of the … Continue reading Recipe: Vegetarian French Onion Soup

Over-Used Recipes Week: The Meals We Could Make Blind-folded

Tiffany at Simple Modern Mom had this stellar idea to share our most loved / over-used recipes we make so often we could practically prepare them blindfolded. The idea is pretty basic – link up your tried and trues at her blog and check out the recipes other participants have been making for their families. The goal is to broaden our dinnertime options with already … Continue reading Over-Used Recipes Week: The Meals We Could Make Blind-folded

Aloha Friday: What’s Cooking?

It’s time for another Aloha Friday, the day that you take it easy and look forward to the weekend, in Hawaii and blog land anyway. As you should know by now, over at An Island Life, Kailani decided that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting and ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. If you’d … Continue reading Aloha Friday: What’s Cooking?

Daybook: July 13, 2009

Today… Outside my window: Yet another gorgeous day – weather man says it’s 68 degrees out which sounds lovely. High of 80. Hopefully it’s not too muggy when we go out later today (we’re finally getting our Wisconsin drivers licenses today). I am hearing: Martha Speaks on tv (a favorite in our household – MM is currently captivated), the hum of the A/C and the … Continue reading Daybook: July 13, 2009

Daybook: July 6th

Today… Outside my window: It’s another beautiful day – bright blue sky, puffy white clouds. I had to turn on the AC, which to me says everything. Weather man says a high of 81 – we’ll see how hot that 81 feels when I go to my doctor’s appointment this afternoon. This week looks to be much warmer than last week, unfortunately for pregnant me. … Continue reading Daybook: July 6th

Monthly Menu Plan: July

I’m back with another month of menu planning! This month’s menu is all sorts of, “Maybe”-filled. Especially those last two weeks where I’m having the baby and recovering in the hospital and then coming home to recover some more. A lot of that is guess work – but that’s okay – just having a sort of plan makes me feel a bit more in control. … Continue reading Monthly Menu Plan: July

Daybook: June 15th

Today… Outside my window: It’s apparently 78 degrees – according to my little digital clock / weather genie it’s also 78 degrees inside – time to turn on the AC! I am not sure if it’s as oppressively hot as it feels or if I’m just humongously pregnant but for me, it’s hot. It’s also gorgeous – perfect fluffy white clouds in a light blue … Continue reading Daybook: June 15th

Daybook: June 8th

Today… Outside my window: It’s cool, high in the 60’s with several chances for rain. For the first time in my life, this thrills me – these 70’s-80’s+ days have kind of been killing me, being all hugely pregnant. I’ve been basking in the chilled breezes this weekend. I do feel a bit bad for hubby who was determined to ride his bike to work … Continue reading Daybook: June 8th
