I had an impromptu Virtual Breakfast on Saturday morning. Friday night, I stayed in to relax with the dogs and watch back to back episodes of Justin Timberlake on Saturday Night Live.
Jason was out playing music, leaving me to JT, browsing the internet – Pinterest for wedding ideas and Instagram to see what everyone was up to. I got in a conversation on Instagram with Somer and Sarah about [click to continue…]
Golf, skee ball and shuffleboard, oh my!
Jason and I were both in need of a relaxing, let’s go play kind of weekend. It began Thursday afternoon, and a nice long weekend was enjoyed.
I spent Friday morning with two girlfriends and one of their new babies – oh. so. cute. Sweet and mellow and did I say sweet? Left the girls at lunchtime, swung by the house and picked up Jason for vegan burgers at one of our regular favorites.
The weekend also included a couple movies, outside time with the dogs, veggie sushi, and shuffleboard. We played two games, I won two games.

Last week was catch up time for me – I just returned from L.A. where I not only spent four days at Expo West – the Natural Food Products show, but I also took another week for vacation, just by myself. Expo West was amazing and overwhelming and so much dang fun, I cannot wait to go back next year!
…and vacation time was so nice. I went to the beach, I walked all over everywhere, I relaxed and I ate some fantastic food. I have at least a couple of posts to recap, coming soon.
So, all of that means I have not been around for Meatless Mondays. This week the ingredient is squash, which I love in so many ways. In lieu of a new recipe, I am sharing some of my favorites with you.
Anyone want to take a half a guess at what my favorite squash is? It may not be apparent here. But it might. Do you have a favorite?

My love of kabocha continues. and I keep finding new things to do with it. I think I ate this sandwich every day for a week. Yep, probably went through … six kabocha in five days?
Last night I was out of sandwich rolls so I made a kabocha rice bowl with all of these ingredients.
After several weeks of bummer avocados, [click to continue…]
Yaaay for an extended weekend, yaaay!
Jason was out of town all week last week, flying back home late Thursday night. He took Friday off and we spent the day together, then hosted a small Valentines Day party with 12 of our favorite people at a private karaoke room place. SO fun.
My brother and I capped off the evening by singing Bohemian Rhapsody. Glorious.

Happy Monday everyone! Meatless Monday, at that.
I didn’t know the ingredient for this week until after we were already snowed in. Have you all heard what has been happening in Portland since [click to continue…]
Last month we flew down to L.A. for four days of fun with friends just before Christmas. We had front row seats to The Dan Band (extremely fun and I highly recommend!), we cry-laughed through the Anchorman premiere, and we sang Christmas carols in our fluffy robes to people in our hotel lobby. Super fun shenanigans and [click to continue…]
Hi guys! Whew, it is so so good to be back here. While I needed that hiatus, I sincerely missed being in the kitchen, sharing here, and most of all
scarecrow, the conversations with you all.
Much of my time off was not spent cooking, as the [click to continue…]
