Lunch Lately

As I’ve mentioned, um, almost every time I’ve blogged this month, work has gotten crazy busy. Generally it just means that I’m always busy, and that my desk looks like this: However, it also means that I can’t take long leisurely lunches.

Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup

So it’s been pretty cold. I know that I’ll get flack for saying this, being that I live in California and all. But it has consistently been 32 degrees or below every morning this week! I won’t mention that the high each day has also been 50 degrees…but I will complain about having to defrost … Continue reading

Meatless Monday: Curried Cauliflower Soup

But there … Continue reading

What to Eat When You Have a Broken Hand

Life is hard with one hand. I know I’ve said it before, but I’m so often reminded of it that I feel it needs repeating. Life is especially hard when you normally insist on making meals from scratch and an injury dooms you to to a life of microwave meals. I really try to stick … Continue reading

Mother’s Day Dinner

Mother’s Day Dinner

Every year, someone in my family has a meltdown on the major holidays. Mother’s Day, birthdays, Christmas, you name it. If it’s an important holiday, someone’s gonna have a meltdown. Apparently, this year, it was my turn. I’d like to blame it on the boyfriends-family-emergency I mentioned yesterday, or on the fact that I really … Continue reading
