Good Cheap Eats in February

I’ve been cooking up a storm these days, both literally and figuratively. We’re eating well. A little too well, I think. I’m quite thankful for the exercise bike in my room. All this eating has me getting some good cardiovascular exercise a few times a week — and it keeps the bike from being used as a fancy towel rack.

  1. that egyptian lentil soup looks amazing!

    i clabbered milk last week and made a soft cheese with the curd. it has the consistency of whipped cream cheese. we had it spread on muffins for breakfast, and i think it’s creamy enough to melt on hot pasta, so we’ll have a creamy pasta dish with mushrooms, spinach and bacon one night.

  2. What a yummy recap:-)

  3. These look so good! Thanks Jessica for sharing. Love to hear of your mom’s recipes too and the way she would make things so very cozy. So nice.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
