This weekend we had a terrific rain storm which kept us huddled around the fire and craving soup. This soup is easy, delicious, comforting, and tastes even better the next day. Here’s how you do it: Cover the bottom of a big pot with olive oil and add 1 diced red onion. When onions start to become transparent add 1 lb of grass fed beef and 1
When life gets tough, I often think about those few epic CrossFit WODS that have been permanently burned into my memory banks, and I think, “Well, if I can get through THAT, I can get through anything.” I also think about the resiliance of children and how they often tackle challenges with the bravery and optimism of warriors. For example, back in September we had our annual Fight Gone Bad
I recently had someone ask a question about Brussel Sprouts and wanted recipe ideas. Brussel sprouts tend to be one of those veggies with a very bad reputation, and I admit, I used to loathe the thought of eating the miniature cabbages – but I have truly grown to love them and yes, my kids eat brussel sprouts – in fact the ASK for them!

I love the colors at the market during the fall: there are falling leaves of gold and red – crunching under feet, bright orange persimmons, green and
Breakfast today was leftover beef stew from last night, hard-boiled eggs, and avocado. Lunch was salmon patties from Costco – heat for 3 min on each side in a skillet with olive oil. I made “fish tacos” out of the patties with romaine lettuce leaves, diced tomatoes, broccoli slaw, a little mayo, and some hot sauce. Rowan looks scared of the taco, but he chowed
Monday morning I made Karina’s sweet potato hash. I grated two sweet potatoes and cooked with crumbled pork sausage and butter until the sausage was brown and crisp and the potatoes were soft and starting to crisp up. I seasoned it all with cinnamon and ground ginger. Lunch that day was quick and easy: sliced ham, cherry tomatoes, artichoke hearts, carrots and celery, and steamed
