Good Food. Good Friends. Good Times.

Dear Friend,

What a wonderfully relaxing, fun and much needed weekend we got to share this past weekend. I can’t even begin to describe how much it meant to spend time with you—cooking, hiking, sipping bevy’s and camping on the couch.

Welcome 2017!

Dear Food Friend,

It’s been exactly 5 months since I’ve talked with you here and I have to tell you how much I miss our food talks! It was great seeing you in real life! The chili you made for dinner was so good—probably one of my most favorite vegetarian chili’s I’ve had since I cut out meat. I hope the rest of your travels and holiday went well! What did you get from Santa?! Our holidays were good! Lots of traveling–the last half of the year seemed to be very busy for us so it was really nice to relax and be with family. Continue reading

Catch up.

Dear Friend,

Your garden is looking so beautiful and delicious! How has it been growing since we last spoke? I’m interested to learn about what you do with those beets!! Having a garden is a lot of work but so rewarding. My family has had gardens for as long as I can remember, and it’s only been in the recent years of being so far away from home and the garden that I have any appreciation for it. Dad usually does all the work to what we refer to now as our family CSA; every year my mom makes jars on top of jars of tomato sauce and raspberry jelly. I love going grocery shopping when I do go home because I always leave with the good stuff. 🙂

¿Donde esta el queso?

Dear Friend,

Good Food. Good Life.

Dear Friend,

Happy Spring! Although with that white crap that’s falling from the sky now, it finally feels like winter. I’m not sure about your neck of the woods, but it’s been up to 60* and so, so nice. And now this. Luckily the snow won’t stay long, though I’m sure this weather has been pretty perfect for your maple syrup conglomeration 🙂 Continue reading

There is no fun in having nothing to do…

…the fun comes in having lots to do and not doing it.

Dear Friend,
As my title suggests, I’ve been particularly lazy lately…well, not lazy per se but I’ve become a VERY good sleeper. I’m not tired during the day, and I get home with the best of intentions to be productive and I sit down on the couch to regroup and I’m out. I’m like a baby-alive, once my head is horizontal my eyes shut and I’m out. I’ve been trying to be in the kitchen a lot more—if I don’t sit down when I get home I can make it until at least 7:30 before I fall asleep.
