new fav

My new favorite thing to eat is mashed sweet potatoes. I'd rather have them than russet or baby red or yukon gold.

Last night I sauteed garlic, spinach, and crimini mushrooms and mashed them into my taters.

Divine. Try it.

peeing fire

The other day I stayed home sick from work.
Some of you might think I lead a pretty exciting life but i'm here to show you that I do not.
Instead of relaxing and napping, I got bored. Real bored.

So I took all the books off all the bookshelves and organized them by category and returned them to the shelf in a way that pleases me. No one else will ever notice that I did this but I delight in it.

I also found the patchouli incense i've been tearing the apartment apart for. Why do I hide things in books?

And then I loved my children.


After days and days of extreme stress and worry and 25 packages of wet food and wasted cans of tuna and kitty antibiotics that smell like bubble gum and forcing water down Coops throat and giving him fresh Tilapia and Alaskan Salmon and holding him and letting him scratch anything he wants....

... He ate the dry food on his own today. He feels heavier. Acts feisty and lively.

My new favorite thing:

Blossoms. Pink and white. Buzzing bumble bees.

Birds drinking pollen outside.

hey yall, its spring.

kill them with kindness

I had a conversation with my mom recently about being younger and experiences we both had with being picked on or being the picker on-er. Children can be brutal to each other. Girls especially.
I wish I knew then, what I know now.
My mom has always been an example (more like a shining beacon) of kindness and charity and what it really means to love your neighbor.

"Kill them with kindness"
"If you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all"

Are just a few of the fun things she would (still does) say to us kids.

And she is right. You never know what is going on in someone elses personal life and rather than attack or judge or be critical, I want to try to always be nice and positive. Ask questions rather than assume. Express empathy. Be hopeful but not obnoxiously so.

Love you all.

we made it

What a crazy place to visit. That city never sleeps.

I've talked to several people recently who are interested in making changes to their eating habits and overall lifestyle. I'm no saint and I wont ever claim to know it all but I do have some knowledge and I do my best to continue learning. My dear friends if you have any questions do not hesitate to ask. The world is full of information, just waiting at your fingertips. Don't be a dud. Keep learning! You're never too old. You're never too stuck to change. You're never too powerless to improve.

P.s. I have a little food blog that I keep, its nothing special and I have very few posts on it but I plan to keep updating it and once its nifty I'll share.
