moar. meat.

i did it! all that leftover chicken and sirloin kebabs . . . gone! and it didn’t even take me all week. a little creative recycling and a straight-up repeat for me and it’s done. Monday: couscous with the chicken and onions, add red and green bell peppers. everyone’s happy. Tuesday: steak on salad for […]

Sunday supper: meat!

i’ve been trying really hard to keep my daily calories balanced with 40% carbs, 30% fat and 30% protein. unofficially Zone-ish, i guess. anyway, was super low on protein today leading into dinner, so i figured some nice chunks of red meat were my best bet to get right! sirloin kebabs marinated in oil, soy […]

how we turned 6

i am such an incredible nerd. i wish i had a sweet picture of Spy and myself from a romantic anniversary outing yesterday—kissy-facing and clinking champagne glasses on a rooftop patio as the sun sets over the Atlanta skyline behind us with a sparkle in our eyes and rainbows and baby unicorns hovering nearby .

forty__________.

if it’s a day in April, it must be someone’s birthday in this household. after the whole four extravaganza, i was honestly too mentally exhausted to even think about Spy’s birthday today. and no, there will definitely not be a celebration or post for Parker’s birthday on Wednesday. i did at least manage to throw together […]

Sunday Supper: lazy basics

it has been an insane few weeks. with the husband half a world away and me holding down the fort as a working single mommy and planning a certain someone’s 4th birthday party all on my own, cooking real food has been one of the absolute last things on my list. chicken nuggets for dinner again? sure. […]

the Thai offensive

photo: OnMyPlate.co.uk that year, in early in January, the famous Miser brothers made one of their annoying little deals that they make from time to time. the two agreed that Heat Miser would let his brother, Snow Miser, put the freeze on Southtown that Monday morning (itty-bitty snowflakes, schools closed for days and all). and in return, […]

competetive cupcaking

if anyone had told me 3 years ago that i would have done a practice round of the cupcakes i intend to take to school for Miss Girl’s second birthday, i would have told them they were fucking insane. 3 years ago, i had no idea i would be dealing with mega-mommies who somehow find […]
