August – Hamburger Helper for Adults

It’s been a busy few weeks. Hell, a busy few months. So when trying to figure out this month’s new recipe, I wanted something easy. Zeus works most weekends, so while these new recipes may be a venture we wanted to do, I’m usually the one making it, so easier is better. He helps when he…

July – Stop Taking Away My Noodles!

The title of this post was Zeus’ response to my suggestion of making zucchini lasagna. We were trying to find a recipe for July’s meal of the month, and that was all I could think of to make with the ingredients that were already in the fridge. But then my mom tagged me in one of those Facebook…

Roasted Acorn Squash Goodness

An acorn squash was one of the items in our farm bag a few weeks ago. The first one we got went bad because I didn’t know what to do with it, so this time I was determined to figure something out. I looked at a few different recipes, but the majority of them were…

These Desserts Are Just Peachy

Over the past year or so, my dinosaur-loving friends and I have had movie nights to watch/make fun of all the installments of Jurassic Park. It’s taken this long to get through them all because we like to have other parties too, so these are jammed in-between. Each movie night, there is lots of delicious…

The Last Farm Bag

It’s a good day, and a sad day, because today is the last of our farm bag deliveries for a while. The next few months are going to be extremely busy, and we’ll be in Europe for most of September, so I suspended our deliveries until we get back. If we need veggies, we’ll just…

Why is the bread gone?

It’s farm bag day! I forgot to put the bag out today because I kind of forgot about the whole thing to be honest, but the farm bag came anyway 🙂 (they give you a reusable bag with all your produce and then you leave it out when your next delivery comes). It was missing…

It’s Farm Bag Day & I’m Happy as a Peach

Munching on watermelon from our last bag, I opened today’s delivery. What mysterious items does this week hold? I really forgot to look at the list so I had no idea. I see some green tomatoes in there! But that’s all I could tell until I opened it.  Once I did, this is how I felt about all…

Taco Kitchen

Tonight, we went to the Taco Kitchen. That is, our kitchen. We made tacos. In the crockpot. It was so easy. I put them in this morning, turned on the timer for 6 hours, and went to work while they cooked. Can’t get any better than that. I need to find more crockpot recipes because…

(Baked) Fried Green Happiness

Today has been a sad day, given all that happened in Orlando last night. I just don’t understand all the hate in this world. But I was reminded of how amazing and loving the people I’ve chosen to surround myself with are every time I looked at Facebook today, which, to be honest, was as little…

When in Roma, Add Tomatoes

I wish I was in Roma, as this title suggests, but alas, I am in my kitchen and it’s finally dinner time. It’s really late I know, but we’ve been working around the house all day. Zeus worked on the deck. I cleaned the house, brushed Yoda for about 30 minutes and almost made another animal, and…

June’s First Farm Bag, plus a Pegasus

It’s farm bag day! And I am in love with what’s inside this giant bag… What came in the bag: Blackberries Seedless Watermelons Yum Yum Peppers Garden Gem Tomatoes Roma Beans Fairy Tale Eggplant Organic Cucumbers The French Pantry’s Ciabatta I have so many recipe ideas floating around in my head for this bag. I’ve never tried…

Farm Bag Day & Mini Classic Cheesecakes

Thursday was farm bag day, I made some of my delicious cheesecakes, and I’ve been busy ever since, so today is the first time I’ve had a chance to blog about it. I was especially excited about this week’s farm bag, because it had quite a few of my favorite things: Cucumbers Peaches Patty pan squash Organic…
