Well, if I knew you were all going to say such nice things about me yesterday, I'd tell you that I have dirty dishes in my sink everyday! Thanks for all your kind words, they really do make me feel better about my crazy life.
Today's project is a layout I created with one of Will Fisher's photos. This is his oldest daughter picking apples. Isn't she beautiful with the sunlight behind her?
Recipe memories are some of my favorite memories. Unfortunately, I think the memories my kids document from our kitchen will be about our funny and failed adventures in the culinary arts, not about preserving great recipes to pass down.
I have given up red meat entirely and I'm on the verge of becoming a full on vegetarian. I now eat things I couldn't pronounce a few years back like quinoa and falafel and although I have mastered saying them, I'm still having trouble cooking them. I have to ask, does anyone have success with tofu on their first try and how many tries exactly does it take one to get it right?
Yesterday morning I got up early to make a smoothie for my kids for breakfast. I do this often and don't usually have trouble with it turning out. However, just in case you were wondering, Romaine lettuce does not hide as well as spinach leaves do. And from another past experience let me assure you, as sweet as bell peppers may taste, they are not a good vegetable to add to a fruit smoothie!
When my children seek counseling in their adult years, I'm pretty sure they will be diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder related to mealtimes!
