Ojibwe Celebration and International Book Giving Day


A SUPER bowl of Nachos


We have a busy week of celebrations, so I thought I'd share the recipe for the "SUPER bowl" of Nachos we enjoyed last weekend. Enjoy them at your next celebration!

Menu for the week of February 6, 2012


As I've mentioned previously, we receive a monthly winter food share through the Food Farm a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). One of the things we get are potatoes. Believe it or not, my dilemma is that potatoes are not a favorite vegetable of my kids. Some are beginning to sprout and need to be eaten! As I was thinking what we could do with them, Potato Skins came to mind. Who can resist cheese, bacon and sour cream??!!??

Cabbage Beet Salad


The first part of the year through mid-February is always a busy one for us. In addition to getting back into the swing of things after the holidays, we always have some adjusting with Pete’s new teaching schedule, several birthday celebrations, various volunteer commitments, extracurricular activities and the unexpected. I’m always looking out for ways to keep myself feeling good and healthy during the whirlwind….

It's a busy time around here and it is so nice to be able to draw upon past menus, freeing up time to play in some long-awaited snow!

Steel Cut Oats with Berries & Caramelized Bananas


Growing up I never, not ever, liked warm cereal for breakfast!! I still don’t care for hot cereal that is mushy or the real sweet, instant stuff in a packet. But I have found a new love for hot cereal that has a bit of texture!

During this COLD spell, we're dreaming of warmer days and seedlings.

Oven Roasted Sweet Potatoes


The other day Skoogie and I were playing restaurant. I was the waitress and she was ordering. As she was looking at the menu she asked for some white long things. I replied, “Would you like some French fries?” She replied, “Yes, French fries.” As I was getting the order ready, I thought to myself, should I be concerned that my four year old doesn’t know the word for French fries? Words don’t always come to Skoogie, so I’m always watchful of this kind of thing… but I decided… no it is okay. She knows beans, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, corn, salad (for lettuce and other greens), kale, zucchini, beets, pumpkins, onions, garlic, peas, celery, tomatoes, potatoes and her favorite of all sweet potatoes. That’s quite a long list… it’s fine with me if French fries aren’t at the tip of her tongue!

We just received another Farm Share Delivery. We have lots of squash, beets and parsnips leading us to this week's menu...

Hot Chocolate with Homemade Marshmallows


There is nothing like warming up with hot chocolate after skiing, skating, or playing on a winter day.
