February 24th, 2011 · No Comments · food

Did I mention that V could live on snacks? At any hour of the day, there is the familiar cry, I’m hungry. Just not for lunch or dinner… Slices of apples spread with peanut butter (almond butter will also work) and dotted with raisins, cranberries or dried cherries. This is a much enjoyed riff on [...]

Still life on front porch. The tomatoes were a gift from our neighbor. Doing real work in the kitchen: making pancakes with daddy. The house has been cleaned and I’ve done as much decluttering as I can.  We’ve pared back on our commitments and have stocked up on supplies. There are two casseroles in the [...]

All of Tig’s hard work is starting to pay off, the veggies and plants are popping! According to his calculations, we’ve eaten about $40 worth of produce so far. The nectarine and peaches are growing. V has already picked and eaten quite a few alpine strawberries – I haven’t even tasted one yet…
