The Garden: Week 1

Can you believe that it’s gardening time again? This winter went by SO FAST.

That may have a lot to do with the fact that we didn’t have much of a winter in Kentucky. Our heaviest snow came on March 3rd, and the day after that it was 80 degrees outside.

Consequently, I was able to till the section of garden I planted — barefoot! I love tilling dirt barefoot. There are few things as energizing as the feel of fresh-tilled dirt on bare feet.

Menu Monday 27 JUN 2011 – 9th Anniversary Week

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of June 27th. Gregg is home (yay!) and Tuesday this week is our 9th wedding anniversary. As such, I’m going to attempt to create a red velvet cheesecake my friend Heather from Out of the Box Into the Kitchen recommended to me. The recipe she gave me called for a Devil’s Food cake mix, so I’m going to try to recreate the recipe real food style. I also found a cookie cutter in the shape of Lightning McQueen, and may make some Traditional Sugar Cookies and let my boys decorate some cookies. We also have a ton of birthday cake left.

The Garden Week 1

We’ve had the wettest April in recorded history here in central Kentucky, so I’m a couple of weeks behind where I was last year at this time. But, it’s also been unusually cold so it’s good that I couldn’t get out to the yard and get it tilled until now. I ran the tiller last week, and then this past Monday and finally got the seeds and seedlings into the rich Kentucky earth.

Menu Monday 06 DEC 10

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of December 6th. Wow. Is it really December already? Outside of my home in central Kentucky, the world is blanketed in snow, while inside my tree lights are quietly blinking – yet it’s hard to imagine how quickly the last year has gone. I will be putting together a Christmas menu, just like I did with my Thanksgiving Extravaganza, so be on the lookout for that.

This is a busy week – we have something almost every night. As such, my dinners are simplified and will be easier to make ahead of time so that we can eat as we have an opportunity. As far as desserts go, I still owe you a recipe for whole wheat chocolate chip cookies – and my cookie jar is nothing but crumbs. I hope to get to that this week!

A Time of Rest

Ten days ago, I left my home in Kentucky and headed south to Tallahassee, Florida. I got into town Thursday afternoon, visited friends, and went to another friend’s house for the evening. Friday morning I did some business at the courthouse, had lunch with friends, picked Kaylee up from school, had dinner with friends, and went back to a friend’s house for the evening. Saturday morning, we headed south toward the Florida Panhandle’s coast, picking up a friend of Kaylee’s on the way, and took up residence in a little beach house in Mexico Beach.

Traveling with Children

All three of my kids have been on airplanes by 5 months old, and none of them are unaccustomed to hours in the car. Over the years, I’ve learned several tips to making traveling with children easier.

Kentucky Style Hot Brown

This is a traditional Kentucky turkey sandwich whose name is a nod to the Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky — a 5 star establishment with a 7 star reputation for really incredible dishes.
