A peek at the last week:

Lunch for one. A little egg white omelette with pesto and goat cheese on sourdough bread.

Remember the time I put up the following photo and folks on my Instagram thought it was an ultrasound picture… That happened this week. Just eggplants here.

Eggplants to make this beast of a moussaka! (With a salad dressed in a lemon vinaigrette.)

Vincent tends to have lunch at home every other day, as he gets done with school around noon. This week’s chop-chop.

Little Chicken’s favorite post-bath activity. Becoming a Chicken burrito on top of a heating pad.

Some mornings require more coffee than others…

Storm’s coming…

I have been craving sushi for WEEKS. So I made some. Hawai’i-style. For lunch one day…

Homemade seitan turned into homemade vegetarian BBQ.

Remember that storm I told you was coming? It brought some lovely rain…

And caused the creek and waterways around here to rage.

I got a little carried away with the sushi making and made this for lunch one day… for myself. But I ended up sharing.

Last minute enchiladas. Craig and Vincent said they were the best yet. Roasted green chiles and cheese… Silas said, “I don’t like these chiles. Not even the smell of them.” Hahaha

Homemade english muffin making when I should’ve been going to bed…

So that I could make pre-basketball game Julie’s egg McMuffins.

Cheers! Have a wonderful week-to-come! :)

Day to Day Life: Weeks 46 + 47

Here is a peek at the last couple weeks:

Ashland in the fall (before windy wet weather came in and rendered most of the trees leafless).

On an impromptu hike with our buddy Janet on a day Silas didn’t have any school.

Helping grade papers late one night.

Sauce-making.

Little Nugget.

A thrown-together mess meal of deliciousness. Veggie chick’n stew with parmesan herb biscuits!

IMG_6904

Goodbyeee summer garden!

Heading north in rainy fall weather, to the State Water Polo Tournament.

IMG_6911

The Ashland High School girls placed third in state. Miss Kenya Mickey about to make a goal.

IMG_6504

The Ashland High School boys also placed third in state. Vincent made an incredible number of blocks all weekend.

IMG_8743

This has been an incredible team all year!

Bacon veggie cheeseburger night…

IMG_7001

Sometimes you need to get to the outskirts of town to appreciate Ashland…

IMG_6041

And certainly when you get back into town, you shouldn’t be shocked by sites like this guy, walking his three goats on a leash along with his dog.

IMG_7004

Bandera enchilada night with Vincent and his girlfriend. Also, so much tastier than appearance would probably lead you to believe…

IMG_6977

One large bottle, two baby bottles…

IMG_6972

Silas Henry also received a trophy at his football awards banquet after a tough, well earned season.

IMG_6365

This lovely girl asked me to take her senior pictures… Seeing as I had never done anything like that before, I was hesitant… but it was a lot of fun. And nowhere near as stressful as my crazy-brain thought it’d be.

Kelsey - 13

Pizza night.

Flowers on our third wedding anniversary.

IMG_7009

Looking so old suddenly.

IMG_6163

Hi, Chicken.

IMG_6196

Homemade roasted tomato soup with optimum-cheese-stretch grilled cheese sammiches.

I hope you’ve had an excellent couple of weeks!

Day to Day Life: Week Thirty-Four

Here’s a peek at the last week:

Blue skies.

One trouble…

And one trick…

These teddy bear sunflowers showed up in the garden this year. They’re so fluffy!
IMG_1517

There are lots of eggplants in the garden, too. So… eggplant sammiches one night with caramelized onions, smoked gouda and garlic basil vegenaise.

Silas’s sister Kenya celebrated a birthday recently. We had she, her mom, Silas, Vincent, and Nana over one night for pizza and birthday cake. This dark chocolate cake with fresh blueberry swiss meringue actually turned out okay!

Dudes hanging out on the front porch one morning, eating some oatmeal.

A quick dinner for five one night. Creamy polenta, marinara, mozzarella stuffed homemade sourdough rolls, grilled zucchini and grilled Trader Joe’s chicken-less sausage.
IMG_5260

I finally cooked one of the 5-pound Sasquashes from out of our garden. Half went to the above dinner and the remaining half got baked into a loaf of zucchini bread and a dozen chocolate zucchini muffins.
IMG_5195

A lunch picnic stop enroute to Redmond for an overnight trip to see Vincent and Kenya play water polo.
IMG_5202

Green and blue. My favorite color scheme.
IMG_5217

We stopped to check out the Natural Bridge along the Rogue River.
IMG_5280

Being in and near water is always my happy place.
IMG_5281

Vincent, just about to run around camp with that Ashland flag.
IMG_5270

And then Vincent, Ashland High School’s water polo goalie, completely submerging an opposing team member to keep him from scoring on Ashland’s goal…
IMG_5269

Kenya also kicked some serious ass all weekend and made more goals than I could keep up with.
IMG_5275

Pizza and beer. Pizza and beer. YES please.
IMG_5229

What happens when you don’t sleep well? Grumpy early morning selfies. (Apparently.)
IMG_5239

Two of my favorite things about taquerias: pickled carrots and homemade salsas.

Who is that wrapping up the quarterback for the opposing team? #14 Silas Henry Wright. First games happened today and that little boy did wonderfully despite scorching temperatures and artificial turf radiating even more heat!
