What's been going on in my kitchen...
An update as to what is going on in my kitchen!
First off, aren't those mushrooms cool? I got them a few weeks ago in my Produce Club basket. I was hoping to do a funky Thai coconut soup with them, but life got in the way and I ended up chopping and throwing them into a jazzed up spaghetti sauce. Still tasty, and fun to look at!
We have survived Birthday Season in our house... mine, my husband's and my oldest son (Happy 4th Birthday Big Man!) happen within a month of each other's. I'm kinda sick of cake, if that's possible.
It's been about a month and a half of starting 2 week Menu Planning, which has really flexed my budgeting and planning muscle. I've had a few hiccups, but overall it's been nice to save some time shopping with two little boys in tow. Hopefully once I get more comfortable with the 2 week plans, I'll start posting them here. Nobody wants to see a list of "Chicken something with some sort of Potato" meals. But so far we're all getting fed healthy and balanced meals.
Writing for my first ebook about Freezer Cooking is just about wrapped up, which is where most of blogging brain has been focused. It's just about ready to be released for PDF and Amazon Kindle sales.
My 8 month old is crawling, pulling himself up, standing and a.l.m.o.s.t. taking those first steps. How did that happen already? And why do babies lead with their heads when they fall?
I've been busying cooking, as always, so look for some new recipes soon!
