Rice and Bologna oh my!

When you haven’t made it grocery shopping and you haven’t thawed anything and for some reason in the middle of September it is 95 degrees instead of 80 you get creative.  About 3 times a year we enjoy fried bologna sandwiches and this just happened to be one of those weeks for them.  But with…

Stuff and mac n cheese

There is a lot to be said for having stuff.  Some people look at having stuff as an icon of their life.  We put things around us that make us feel better about our accomplishments and possibly to show off our accomplishments.  It is a way of life that we are taught at a young…

Cold rice dish

It was a cold winter that just wouldn’t stop.  Now we are in the middle of summer and the heat is beating down on us in full swing.  The last thing you want to do is cook every day hovering over the stove.  I am working on recipes that I can cook one day and…

Chemical clutter

Living clean and chemical free means more than food. Stuff in your living areas can take over and leave you mentally drained.  We fulfill our time off with cleaning our homes, buying more stuff and then adding it to our cleaning routine .  Are we meant to spend our free time picking up, cleaning, shopping…

Adventures in eating…

We tend to go thru our daily lives eating typically the same things.  Sometimes we reach outside the norm and try something new but overall we stick to the same types.  What happens when your life choices have to change because you are diagnosed with an allergy?  That is an allergy against meats and dairy…

Life Thought

     ​Normally I talk about food and nature type subjects.  The busy summer I have had brings me to write about something more personal, family and friends.  We are thrown into a family and raised based on how our parents are taught through their families and through society.  As we grow older some realize…

Chemical free living

Chemical free living is something dear to my heart.   Why chemical free?  Our bodies are organic in a sense so why would we introduce chemicals into them?  It is the only body we get in this lifetime so in my opinion why not take care of it the best you can. For 7 years our…
