lunchtime ~ salad rolls

So…the bullet journal thing…it’s not going as well as I’d hoped.  I forgot to set up the next week before the next week came.  Naturally.  I did meal plan, though.  This worked wonderfully the first week.  This week….well, not so much.  Partly, this was due to having company. We did a couple of impromptu seafood… Continue reading lunchtime ~ salad rolls

avocado overload ~ chocolate pudding 

We live in a small town.  A small town in a fairly remote area.  You know the kind.  The kind where the exemptions in free shipping meets the map.  Sigh.  That means sometimes groceries are expensive.  We like avocados here.  Unfortunately buying them at our local grocery store is sometimes cost-prohibitive.  When we head to… Continue reading avocado overload ~ chocolate pudding

rhubarb bread pudding

Spring teased us for weeks here on the coast.  We would bask in the warmth of the spring sunshine only to be brought down to earth the next day with a cold blast.  I do believe we actually went right from winter to summer…well almost-summer, that season, too, likes to taunt me. We know that… Continue reading rhubarb bread pudding

I was perusing Pinterest and was inspired by this recipe.  They had me at pesto and… Continue reading pesto & parmesan pinwheels

easter treats

I’ve been mixing up a few treats for the weekend activities. There was a wonderful Good Friday concert at our sending church last night.  What an amazing evening with a beautiful group who loves Jesus.  We listened to several talented musicians and we all united in praise to our Lord for His completed work on the cross… Continue reading easter treats

donair…cheater-style

  Are you wondering what exactly constitutes a donair?  According to donair.org (yes, believe it or not, that’s a thing), donairs are also known as “doners”, “gyros”, “doner kebabs”, and “donners”.  Whatever you may call them, they are traditionally either Greek or Turkish in origin. We were introduced to the donair pizza on our first… Continue reading donair…cheater-style
