My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

My (almost) vegetarian Life

HellOooo vegetable lovers (and the occasional meat lover)! I must admit that this week's menu has more meat in it than I'd like, but my Jamie Oliver cookbook showed up on Friday - Jamie Cooks Italy and I just had to incorporate some of his meals into the menu. I just luuurve Jamie Oliver's food … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

A Little Bit More Organization and a Fridge Clean Out

I know I've said it before, but organizing never really ends, does it? Just when I think I have it all figured out ... I never really do. I was doing a bit of a mini spring clean in my kitchen last weekend and saw a few things I could improve upon. The cupboard under … Continue reading A Little Bit More Organization and a Fridge Clean Out

December (already!) In Our Garden – Operation Clean Up – Porch-appeal

Hello everyone, Well, all we managed to do this weekend (actually, I should say hubby did all the work) was put the stone slabs in front of the porch to finish it off. We found these lovely little slabs underneath an old bath tub in the garden that had all the soil in it. I … Continue reading December (already!) In Our Garden – Operation Clean Up – Porch-appeal

Winter Warmers – Hot Toddies and Other Classics

Hot Toddies

There's no better way to ward off winter chills than with a hot toddy. Hot toddies were my mother's go-to when we had a cold. But have you ever wondered where the term - and the drink came from? Some say the British brought it back from Colonial India, while Americans insist it was their … Continue reading Winter Warmers – Hot Toddies and Other Classics

My (almost) vegetarian Life

Good morning from Halfmoon Bay. We are well into the loooong, dark, rainy days of winter. Thank goodness we got our yard work done yesterday as part of our Operation Clean up (well, except for the porch stones) because it's raining today. These are the kinds of days that make you want to curl up … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Skinny Soup, Pumpkin Chili & More

November in our Garden – Operation Clean up – A New Garden Bed

Hello! How are you all? All well here. It's finally the weekend, after a very long week. The full moon did a number on me yesterday (and everyone else I came into contact with, it seems) with the worst day I've had in a very long time (I'm talking years and years here). I managed … Continue reading November in our Garden – Operation Clean up – A New Garden Bed

My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

This week is a clean-out-the freezer week. I have some ribs and a lovely roast that needs to be eaten soon, so this is the week to do it. I luuurve roast beef & yorkshire pudding! I didn't lose any weight this week (might be the glass of red wine every night), but I did't … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

November in Our Garden – Operation Clean-up – Porch love & a Winter Wreath

Hello everyone. It's getting chilly this past week - the kind of weather that makes you want to curl up with a good book and a mug of hot chocolate. And I've been doing that. But today I got outside for some more clean up - trimmed a couple more shrubs and tidied up the … Continue reading November in Our Garden – Operation Clean-up – Porch love & a Winter Wreath

November in Our Garden – Operation Clean up – Leaves & Mowing

Hi everyone. I hope you've all had a good week. It's rained a LOT here over the last 6 days, but we got a bit of respite on Friday so after work, I made a start on raking up the leaves in our back yard and gave the Angel a little face wash If you've been … Continue reading November in Our Garden – Operation Clean up – Leaves & Mowing
