Cucumber Raita

Cucumber Raita 4

Have you seen this floating around social media? Made me laugh out loud as I think it often. Especially during school drop off when I have to bundle 2 kids, park the car and walk Noah, who decides to move like a sloth, to the door. Not cool weather. Not cool. These cucumbers so light, crisp

In a few weeks, we’ll be driving to Colorado for our annual family vacation. Road trip with two kids, yay…. Really though they should do well since it’s not too far of a drive. The first night we are staying in Denver and going to Elitch Gardens Theme Park. We’ll be there on my birthday

Farro, White Bean and Broccoli Gratin

My little man graduated from preschool on Saturday. And I kept it together through the whole ceremony. Mostly. Both of those facts are incredibly hard for me to believe.
