May in My Garden

I must confess that I have never, ever - never, ever - mown (mowed?) the lawn in my entire life! Hard to believe, but true. There's always been someone around to do it for me - father, husband, sons ... But hubby has been in Vancouver on a course for last 9 weeks and the … Continue reading May in My Garden

Hi everyone! It's been a few weeks. Things have been more than a little hectic around here. Buuut, I'm getting back on track now.  I'm afraid to say that I fell off the wagon in terms of exercise. With the warmer weather, I've (re)started walking for 30 minutes a day along the sea wall in Sechelt … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

March in our Garden – Leggy Seedlings, Cleaning up and a Bonfire

Soooo, although my Broccoli seedlings starting coming up, it quickly became apparent to me that they weren't supposed to look this this (my photo) they were supposed to look like this The problem was that my seedlings weren't getting enough sunlight, even though my dining-room table is next to a big picture window that lets … Continue reading March in our Garden – Leggy Seedlings, Cleaning up and a Bonfire

My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Back on track finally and I lost 3 pounds last week! Whoo hoo! I did things a little differently this time. Instead of having leftover suppers for my lunch, I've been having a salad instead. And absolutely NO sweets! I have a horrible sweet tooth, but this week a small yogurt after supper satisfied my … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

March in Our Garden

It's already March and, although it still looks wintry out there, there are more signs that spring is coming. The snow that we had last week has all gone now and my bulbs don't seem any worse for wear. The buds on the trees and shrubs are still, well, budding. Unless it stays unusually cold, … Continue reading March in Our Garden

Hi Guys. The comfort food last week seemed to do the trick - we're feeling almost normal again 🙂 I haven't even been near the scale last week as 'comfort food' also included a couple of bags of chips while watching a movie or two, not to mention the chocolate. I think we all need … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

  I missed the last couple of weeks - this house has been sick, so only Chicken Noodle Soup and Whisky hot toddies were on the menu! We seem to be recovering, but are still hankering for comfort food, so this week's menu is just that. Monday: Turkey/Lasagna Soup. This isn't exactly "soup" per se, … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

I also used the Buttermilk Ranch Dressing to dip my vege snacks into :). One of the ingredients in the salad was Blue Cheese … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

February In Our Garden

With our move to BC's Sunshine Coast, came a bit more land than we had at our townhouse - way more.  So we've decided to resuscitate our dream of growing our own vegetables and herbs. At the moment, the space where we plan to have our vegetable garden looks like this Our landlord is building … Continue reading February In Our Garden

Well, I'm still not sure if I've lost any weight. Our new scale arrived last week, but I guess I'll have to wait a week until I know for sure. I'm certain I haven't gained anything, as my clothes haven't got any tighter!  🙂 When I made the Balsamic Roast Veggie & White Bean Pasta, … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life
