Sundays are always our last chance to be lazy. Football, napping, napping while the game is on, going for a drive, vegging around the house–all prime Sunday post-morning activities. So who in their right mind would want to slave over a hot stove on such a deliriously delightful time of ease and respite? I wanted something delicious and homemade for dinner, but I didn’t want to … Continue reading pantry raid?
Although the colors of the Blue Ridge mountains have been proof of fall’s arrival for a few weeks, I really didn’t believe it until this past weekend: it finally got cold enough to turn on the heat. I love the smell of the heat going on for the first time; it definitely heralds a change of season, since our falls are susceptible to frequent boats … Continue reading perfect man food.
When you are married to a band director, and when it’s autumn, you will always feel like you have more free time than your spouse, no matter what you do for a living. Marching band season puts high demands on my man’s time. Today was hubs’ first completely band-free weekend in months–MONTHS I SAY!!!– so we had major plans.

He also does not typically support ‘meatless dinners.’ So on a night where I might have otherwise torn open a box of Fruit Loops (definitely meatless) and gone … Continue reading adam sandler serenades me in the kitchen…i mean…
Are you a………………………cabbage eater? (I mean, an outside-of coleslaw cabbage eater?) I approach a risky food with you today…..red cabbage. I myself didn’t even touch it until, oh, about three months ago? I get this feeling that there are plenty of adults who are still afraid of this delightful, beautiful veggie. (It’s seriously beautiful…….once I cut into it, I was in awe of the gorgeous, intricate … Continue reading a real cabbage patch kid
Leaves change hues, I need a jacket, and we’re trading the grill for the oven since we’re too pansy to cook in the cold night air: it’s for sure fall at the Farley house. I should let it be known that usually, when it comes to feeding Farley, he likes to partake in some of the cooking at home. He happens, as per stereotype, to … Continue reading punky is sweet, and so is her chicken
