Aloo Out

My hubby, Sam, said to me yesterday afternoon, “get dressed, we’re going somewhere ( I was in my pajamas, don’t judge me).” We ended up at the Indian grocery store. He had very sweetly decided he was going to make me dinner, a new dish we had never tried. Yay! We had a few momentsContinue reading “Aloo Out”

Rejoining the Gym

Whew! It’s about time! Now that we are vaccinated and we hope other people are too, we have decided to rejoin the gym. I’m still wearing a mask because I feel more comfortable being cautious, especially in a warm, enclosed space with people breathing heavily. There is probably nothing wrong, as the hubby has remindedContinue reading “Rejoining the Gym”

Chinese Food, Yum!

We took my sister out to a Chinese restaurant the other night. No, not take out, and not an overly saucy Americanized version of Chinese food. Incredible and all organic Chinese food in a beautiful setting. We had traditional Shanghai soup dumplings which are amazing ( I am obsessed, but can only make at homeContinue reading “Chinese Food, Yum!”

Tomatoe Recipe #2

Ok, to be fair, this isn’t a recipe. It’s not complicated nor does it use a lot of ingredients. It’s basically just a Caprese salad. Instead of Mozzarella I used Burrata, which is almost like Mozzarella but creamier on the inside. I then drizzled some Balsamic Reduction on top and called it a day. WhenContinue reading “Tomatoe Recipe #2”

Tomato Recipe #1

Now that I’ve started harvesting my lovely tomatoes, I need to figure out what to do with them all before they go bad! Tonight I kept it simple, making spaghetti with tomato sauce. I chopped up about 4 tomatoes and tossed them in to a sauce pan with vegetable broth. I let that cook forContinue reading “Tomato Recipe #1”

Purple Heart Tomatoes

I’m pretty new to this whole gardening thing. Green, if you will. last year, like a lot of people, because of the pandemic, the hubby and I decided to start a garden. In fact, I have something embarrassing to admit… We thought our mint plant was tomatoes and vice versa 😂. We couldn’t understand whyContinue reading “Purple Heart Tomatoes”

I couldn’t help but be(e) drawn to the purple flowers in particular (although I did allow the hubby one choice 😉). To me it is important to find plants that are a source of food for bees. They help toContinue reading “Newest Additions”
