Last night The Father and I were at a loss as to what to eat for dinner. We’d thawed a package of grass fed tri-tip steaks and wanted to do something new and super special for 3 very special steaks. We searched high and we searched low but nothing seemed to jump out at us [...]
and the regular crowd shuffles in. There’s an old man sittin’ next to me, wonderin’ when I’ll put the laundry in! Ok, The Father isn’t old… and he doesn’t exactly care when and how the laundry gets done. I love Billy Joel so I needed to sing my version of Piano Man. I had a [...]

Tomorrow will be the ever exciting weekly trip to the grocery market. Anyone have any exciting recipes I should try? I’m looking for something to eat on Meatless Monday especially! Please remember… no cans and no tomatoes, please!
They been mashed and squished and who knows what else they do to them to extract the oil. I have this mini obsession with coconut oil and I know you’d like to hear about it. During the sumer of ’08, I was looking through a vitamin catalog when I came across a jar of Extra [...]
