Mealtime Movement

Life December 10, 2015

The table in our dining room is scratched and dented. There is a chair on each end and benches along the sides. I used to sit here as a child, squeezed in between cousins and aunts and uncles, sipping ruby red grapefruit juice out of a tiny yellow can. The kind with no added sugar that made my mouth pucker and eyes water. My grandpa would sit at one end,…

What a week! My beloved Sooners won the Sugar Bowl, my sorry KC Chiefs choked in the playoffs (again), and Jeff and I celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary. Oh, and I made my first batch of coconut chicken chili. Friends, this is good. So good.  Serve over rice or quinoa with a sprinkle of cilantro (or basil if you’re a cilantro-hater), peanuts, and a squirt of Sriracha. I promise, you’re…

Joe starts first grade tomorrow. At 7:20. A.M. Have I mentioned I’m not a morning person?  Summer for us consists of baseball games and midnight bed times.  The transition isn’t going to be easy.  Knowing the lazy days of summer were coming to an end sent me on a grocery shopping spree, stocking up on healthy food, snack food, and pantry staples.  I even made a meal-plan Pinterest board to…

I don’t know why, but I always seem to forget about how quick and easy it is to make a pot of chicken curry.  Or shrimp curry.  Or whatever-you-want-to-throw-in-the-pot curry.  This is something I should make more often because not only is it quick and versatile, but my family gobbles it up every time. All you need is a can of coconut milk, a jar of green curry paste, chicken…

Butternut Squash Pizza from InspiredRD.com #glutenfree #dairyfree

I’ve been going back through some older recipes from my pre-celiac or “PC days” as Gluten Dude would say and making them over to be gluten-free and dairy-free friendly.  One of my favorites that I used to make all the time was a butternut squash pizza.  I would get the fresh pizza dough from Trader Joe’s or make my own focaccia and throw it together on family pizza night. Since…

Thursday afternoon, I had the privilege of practicing my photography skills on one of the cutest and dearest families I know.  We headed to downtown Gilbert to snap a few shots, the first photos they’ve taken as a family of four.  We caught some beautiful light, and thanks to my photography class last weekend, I knew how to keep the little guys in focus. Those eyes…those wispy-haired brothers…I melt. After…
