World Vegetarian Day: Links to Some of My Favorite Recipes

I Ate All of the Things: Cooking From “Scratch”

This past week I was sicker than I’ve been in a loooong time. The past seven days felt like a black hole. I don’t recall what I did, said, or how I managed to take care of my two little ones who were also sick. I do not have the type of kids that, when sick, lay around and get all cuddly.

You can catch up here: Empty Hangers, Full Life and Opening the Capsule.)

I like this general idea, though, and thought that I’d take it in a slightly different direction for this week’s post. I give you — What We Eat!  Continue reading What We Eat
