Meatloaf, smeatloaf, double beetloaf. I LOVE meatloaf???⁣⁣Wait, what?⁣⁣I was totally Randy Parker as a small child. I was a picky eater who would happily have lived on PB sandwiches (no jam), and mac and cheese.⁣⁣And I despised meatloaf.⁣⁣My mother, however, insisted on making it often when I was a little […]

High School cafeteria chocolate chip cookies

1 comment

There really isn’t a lot I’d like to bring back from my high school years. I’m quite content to leave my “Tease it to Jesus” 80s hair and mouthful of braces as nothing more than a fond memory. But the fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies from the school cafeteria are another […]

Cauliflower “cheese” pasta

2 comments

If you’re like me, you’ve almost always got parts of a cauliflower hanging around your fridge by the end of the week.  I’m the only real fan here, so anytime it gets added to a dish, it’s in small quantities just for me. And I’m always looking for ways to […]

We woke up to a light dusting of snow this morning – not enough to really stick (it’s all gone now), but enough to remind me that winter is on its way.⁣⁠⁣⁠Of course, as I’m typing this, I’m seeing the weather forecast will hit 60F again by Friday, but it’s […]

It’s been quite a week trying to get started with online school.⁣⁣Our school district had a huge spike in students switching from in-person to online classes, and not enough teachers to cover them, so we’ve been in a holding pattern with one child and a delayed start with the other […]
