Spring Salads

We celebrated spring by having a light lunch of shredded chicken/cucumber/soy sauce salad, cold sauteed eggplant with homemade black sesame/miso sauce, daikon in korean honey/grapefruit marmalade with vinegar and sauteed greens. My sister is home for spring break. My family is whole again and I’m happy.

Weekend Walks

By in Daily Life

One constant at our house on weekends: A long afternoon hike or walk. Since we got an extra hour of light because of the time switch, it was especially nice today. I used to despise losing that one hour of sleep, but I’m really looking forward to longer days, warmer weather and spring. (These were […]

Some more things that I love: Anything that contains peanut butter. I saw these interesting ginger chews made with peanut butter at Bristol Farms last weekend and I just had to buy them. They’re surprisingly good and I am loving the design of the tin itself. This show. I’ve recently finished season 3 and can’t […]

Five Senses Friday – #1 (and my one-third life crisis?)

By in Five Senses Friday

Another meme, yes, but one I’ve always wanted to participate in since reading Abby’s Five Senses Friday every week. It’s a great way to slow down and reflect, which I am needing more and more lately it seems . . . Tasting: “DIY” banh mi sandwiches, made with freshly baked baguette from Banh Mi Che […]
