Date Nut balls and the Vegan Challenge

It’s time for another What I ate Wednesday with Jen:

I didn’t do a great job of capturing my eats yesterday, but I did enjoy leftover curried squash soup for lunch and red lentil cakes for dinner. (We had our usual oats for breakfast, and a banana-almond-butter- raisin snack).

The red lentil cakes were […]

Tomato poached eggs

I’m still feeling good after Sunday’s race, and have been able to ease back into my normal routine with a recovery spin on Monday and a easy run yesterday in place of speed work.

I would love some training feedback: I’m debating how to handle this Saturday’s long run, as the following Saturday is a […]

A peak at our day, WIAW

Crock pot comfort

Toddlers are a tricky bunch. Despite one’s best efforts, it seems that some are destined to be picky, at least for a stage. L has been pretty easy to feed, and I like to try new recipes every week. I’m finally settling into some favorites that I keep falling back on, especially when I know […]

Confessions and Curried Squash Stew

Pumpkin and squashes fill the grocery store long before they are actually “in season.” But I gave in and picked up a butternut squash this week for soup.

This is one of our favorite squash recipes, and the delicious spices make the whole house smell like fall. L will eat everything except the lima beans, […]

Veggie inspired

We were spoiled the last 6 years in Ithaca, NY with multiple CSA farms (Community Supported Agriculture), u-pick fruit farms, and a top-notch farmer’s market (not to mention the ease with which we could walk or bike most places!). After moving to Houston this summer, it took some time to feel out the local food […]
