March 5, 2012


I'm currently reading Finding Your Way in a Wild New World: Reclaim Your True Nature to Create the Life You Want by Martha Beck and A Weekend to Change Your Life: Find Your Authentic Self After a Lifetime of Being All Things to All Peopleby Joan Anderson. Both of these books are recommendations from Sunny as preparation for a project we're dreaming up together. I know that Martha's Finding Your Own North Starwas instrumental in my journey (not to mention The Joy Diet! And I've just read the intro of the other and already feel I want to get Joan Anderson's memoirs!



Food shopping this weekend, trying to make and active effort to eat more healthy, or actually to get back to healthier eating. This feels like it's good start, although I do have to remember to eat it all!

Bobby Flay's Pumpkin Soup


We got to have a rare day at home yesterday. I made pumpkin pancakes that Jamie would have found inedible! I didn't want to waste pumpkin soup that I made (which really was just pumpkin pie filling). They were surprisingly tasty but the texture? No matter how long and hard I cooked them, they tasted raw. Oh well, at least we had a Sunday together. That was a treat!

Food for the mind and for the body this weekend!

We're on the healthier eating journey too, Shannon! Yay for all that produce :)

OH, my, Suzie! Though I love the way you make use of everything and can experiment with what you have! That's the mad scientist in the kitchen for sure :)

Yes, you really fed your brain and spirit this weekend Jamie! All those books sound awesome. :)

Shannon, love the basket of food. So good for you! You are doing amazing.

Thanks Jamie! I am really trying to minimize waste with food but sadly, the leftovers are going to be let go but at least I tried! The flavours weren't bad, kind of like my gingerbread pancakes, but the texture. Ugh! Even I had a hard time eating them.

I love it when we post so serendipidiously, look at all the care and nourishment we are all consuming! It's awesome!
