The Saturday after the election we took a hike at deCordova Sculpture Park. It’s kid-friendly, an easy walk, and you’ll see some amazing modern art literally standing out in nature for you to enjoy at your leisure. So many pieces. And a yummy vegetable barley soup with wild mushrooms and lentils to make when you get home!
We revisited a park we went to back in 2010. Believe it or not, almost the exact same day 10 years later! And when we came home I made this curried squash and apple soup. Why not try it? And head to the island now that the plovers are done doing their thing~
Walking along the Battle Road Trail in Concord, and a filling and healthy lentil stew to make for a sunny autumn day
Do you grow herbs at home? Have you wondered how to use them for something different than the usual? How about this recipe for Lemon Fig Chimichurri. A bright, tangy topper for grilled steak or chops, or mix it with a bit more olive oil, some red pepper flakes and a sprinkle of fresh grated parmesan for a great bread dipper!
Years ago we visited Odiorne Point State Park. We went back today to find that it’s even better than we remembered! And when we got home Beth and I baked a Blueberry Peach Crumble. The best ever! Looking for a new place to hike? Looking for a dessert perfect for all those berries you picked? This is it!
This recipe for roasted beets is quick, easy, and may even may a beet lover out of you or your kids! Quick and healthy, and I’ve thrown in a lemon basil vinaigrette recipe that will use up some of those pretty herbs you’ve been growing on your deck.
I lived on a budget when I was in college. Who didn’t? But I had one housemate who budgeted by eating cornflakes, all the time. Wish he’d known of this snack mix with cornflakes. He might have been just a little happier with variety in his life.
Remembering a hike to Purgatory Chasm back in 2010. We loved the area but wore the wrong shoes! Plus a recipe for yummy healthy breakfast bars made with bananas, applesauce, peanut butter and lots of healthy nuts and seeds! Oh, and oatmeal, too!
Looking for a simple squash recipe, that’s just a bit special? Try this one with garlic scapes and cousa squash from our local farm stand. And enjoy reading about a few of the skeletons in my closet.
I love cabbage and I love pickles. What better combination that pickled cabbage? And a reminiscence of our trip to Great Brook Park, when we went back this morning for a COVID-19 version of the same trip!
