A peek into our kitchen as we welcome spring and endeavor to fill our plates with good cheat eats.
Not everybody likes to cook. I get that. And not everybody likes to eat. I don’t get that, but I love you anyway. Three years ago, I realized that I might bore the non-cooking camp with a little too much food talk.
If you knew me in real life, you’d just have to get used to it. Eating is my life!
But, so as not to be a bore, I started a food blog. I don’t think I even had any pictures at the beginning. But, I started taking snapshots of the things I was cooking while my husband rolled his eyes in the background. Nowadays, it’s perfectly normal to have a photo session in the kitchen. Weird how things change like that.
Anyway, if you DO like to cook — or at least like to eat, hop on over to Good Cheap Eats and check out the latest doings in the FishFam Kitchen. It’s been a pretty tasty month.
From the Produce Box
Currently, I subscribe to an organic produce co-op. Located in Central/Southern California, this cooperative of farms, Abundant Harvest Organics, delivers boxes of fresh produce each week throughout the state. I’ve had such fun exploring new vegetables, with some triumphs as well as failures. And we’re buying our fruits and veggies a little closer to source.
The Grocery Geek Update used to be a regular feature on Life as MOM. However, I’ve moved it over to Good Cheap Eats to maintain that continuity of food talk. Currently, I’m on a mission to reevaluate our food budget in light of my other goals of eating more healthfully. This is a challenge! But, since the coupon world isn’t what it was when I first started out, it’s not such a big leap in price to buy more organics and less processed foods.
Each week I post my grocery totals as well as pics of what I bought. This month was a challenge, but you’ll have to read how here:
These weren’t the only recipes I shared this month, but these are sure-fire winners. (Don’t forget to visit Ultimate Recipe Swap here on Life as MOM for a weekly round-up of themed recipes.)
