Over the next few months, we’ll be following one of my long time friends, Amanda, as she makes her journey towards better health. Today’s post will let you know a little bit about Amanda’s history. Most of it is her words, although I’ll be adding some of my own commentary. 🙂

As I was roasting a chicken to make the week’s meals (gravy, stock, etc.) I thought…I bet some yummy herb-roasted potatoes would be great with this. I’d just gotten some very delicate, organic Yukon gold potatoes from our CSA so I was dying to try it. Ben wasn’t a fan, but the kids loved them and so did I. So here they are:

It had been on my plan to make lemon-poppy-seed bread anyway when I started getting lots of zucchini from my CSA. So I thought, I ought to make some zucchini bread too! However, I didn’t have a recipe for either that really worked for me yet. Then I got the brilliant idea to combine them into one delicious, healthy bread. I had also sampled some cheesecake that had nutmeg in it and the flavor had reminded me of lemon zest, so I thought, I bet that will be the perfect spice for this bread. I probably could have even added more than I did. The result was fabulous — moist on the inside and chewy-crunchy on the outside!
Okay, this is the post I promised awhile ago! The one that I was trying to get to work out but that wasn’t going well? But now I figured it out!
The other day I got a craving for peach tea, and decided to see what happened if I mixed some things together. This is what I came up with.
Recently I’ve tried two new recipes that I loved. One was something I sampled while on vacation that I’m hoping to replicate soon (and share with you if it goes well; early attempts are…hmm…) and something I created tonight. Fabulous! So wonderful I couldn’t stop talking about it while I was eating it. So I have to share it with you today.
It’s actually kind of scary. I do major grocery shopping every two weeks, and I spend two or three days before each shopping trip carefully making my meal plan and then checking and re-checking it to make sure it meets our family’s current goals and needs. Then I make my grocery shopping list based on the meal plan, checking and re-checking that too. It doesn’t NEED to take this long, especially not now that I’ve got a good routine going (I’ve been doing this faithfully for over a year), but I actually enjoy it. Am I strange? Probably. But that’s okay.
I’m Kate, mama to 5 and wife to Ben. I love meeting new people and hearing their stories. I’m also a big fan of “fancy” drinks (anything but plain water counts as ‘fancy’ in my world!) and I can’t stop myself from DIY-ing everything. I sure hope you’ll stick around so I can get to know you better!Meet My Family
