Recipe: Mushroom Hand Pies

These were originally supposed to be empanadas but they got a little confused along the way. They turned out delicious enough that I just called them hand pies and think you should make them anyway.

Weekly Lunches: #20

Wow! A round number! Only five more weeks to go in the year and it kind of feels like an accomplishment to have posted 25 (hopefully) out of 52 weeks. I don’t think anyone looks at my blog though so maybe the effort isn’t worth it? *shrug* couscous, salad, apple zucchini and carrot pancakes, yogurt…

Menu: Cat Sitting

We have friends who have four cats and go out of town for a few days every month. This means that we get to hang out with a lot of cats several times which is really cute most of the time. I don’t have any deeper thoughts than that about the menu this week –…

Recipe: Potato Croquette

If you ever wanted to eat mashed potatoes as a finger food: this is it. These are perfectly creamy and deliciously cheese filled but in the future I might actually not shred the cheese but instead place a small cube inside each ball just for a next texture change. To make them much easier to…

Weekly Lunches: #19

I feel like I used to make much more exciting lunches but I can’t seem to get out of this rut? I want to pack more things but it just seems like a big deal over nothing? I don’t know, still thinking about it. Harira, bread, salad, plums Salmon omelette, yogurt with trail mix, apple…

Menu: Thanksgiving Already!?

It’s already Thanksgiving week. Since we’re abroad we’ll be “celebrating” it on Friday. In terms of celebrating…I just like an excuse to make a full menu dinner. Plus it’s an excuse to break out some of the fancy wine that we bought when we were on vacation which is really all you can ask from…

Recipe: Turkey Bolognese

This is such a simple sauce but it’s absolutely delicious. Served with a wide noodle to pick up all those nice chunks of turkey (or chicken or beef or whatever ground meat you end up using) and tomato there’s really something truly delicious about taking good food and making a good meal. You can add…

Weekly Lunches: #18

I feel like I’m very slow at everything suddenly but at least I’m up to number 18 with my lunches. If I don’t manage to post for any of the next four more weeks I’ll have still have posted a little more than every other week which is ehhh, not great but better than nothing….

Menu: Always Behind

I can never tell if I’m overextending myself or actually just very lazy and easily distracted. What a terrible confusion. Anyway here is this week’s menu and I promise there are three more recipes coming down the pipeline very soon I’ve just kind of forgotten to edit them because it takes quite a bit of…

Weekly Lunch: #17

I think next year I’m going to start posting these starting with the number one again so I can see how many weeks I actually hold to the posting part. I haven’t been 100% with my making or tracking or photographing of lunches either but I feel like I’m into the 95% territory which is…
