What we've been eating . . .

It's usually not much of a struggle to come up with ideas and recipes for posts because let's face it, we all cook and eat an awful lot.  This morning as I was wondering why it's been taking me so long between posts on this blog, I decided it's because the last few weeks have been super busy for our family and the end of the spring quarter is taking a toll on me.  I collected all the essays from my writing students this morning and now can look forward to a week of grading.  While it's tough to fit quiet hours to read student writing in my schedule, I'm not one of those people who absolutely hates grading papers.  I wouldn't have become an English major or a writing instructor if that was the case.  So, wish me some peace and quiet over the next 10 days.

And, don't worry that I'm not eating or feeding my family.  I'm cutting back on refined sugar, white flour, and calories in general for the next few weeks so I'm less inspired to bake these days, but we've been eating some favorite healthful recipes that I've already posted:

The Green Soup - I feel like I make this really often but my husband still asks for it over and over

Baked Spicy Salmon - family favorite and very easy

Pita Salad things - I've been eating these for lunch or after spin class a few times a week


  1. You need to give extra credit for students that come up with a menu for the week that includes recipes that are new to you!

  2. I don't always mind grading, but by this time in the quarte I'm pretty fatigued. My problem is that I want to give everyone good grades. I must be very disciplined.
