It's been a long summer, not sad to see it go. My stress and anxiety either bring me to a point where I have to force myself to eat and drink, or they tell my brain to carb load and fill those empty spots with glutenous joy. Tonight's dinner of necessity (aka don't want to leave for ingredients): Lemon and caper linguine, cheese sticks and salad I'm on a lemon kick and the pasta hit the spot; cheese sticks from aldi (amazing deal at under $3 for two orders of cheese sticks you'd get at Domino's and marinara and garlic butter); plain salad. I'm not much on salad dressing, but clearly needed to round out my carb meal
Baked bacon, tofu scramble, and canned biscuits: super quick and cheap weeknight meal. Or as my kids call it EW IM NOT EATING THAT ITHASMUSHROOMANDONION BAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH! Kids are jerks.
I do not think that word means what you think it means. #thrifting #thriftshop #sunday #familyday #ebayseller #jacksonville
I cooked for the first time in two weeks!! My mom's been here taking care of me post-hysterectomy. She left today, so time to fend for myself AND satisfy my plantain craving. It was also a great way to make my kids cry and complain about dinner and run away from the table screaming, I'd rather go to bed! Tofu Cuban with tostones
Decided to buy some soft, after surgery dresses. Clockwise, from left: 1) the it's not actually a muumuu, I just had surgery in my abdomens dress; 2) the when are you due?- I'm not pregnant- you sure? dress; 3) the OMG ITS HAS POCKETS! Look!! dress; 4) the when are you due? I bet it's a boy!- oh for fucks sake...in August, See you later old lady in the grocery store dress
Needed plantains for dinner, soooo over bean based dishes. So I made my version of a torta. Sure, it has bean spread, but it also has baked tofu, pickled red onion and guacamole. And it's gooooood. And the combined effort of this simple looking meal was totally worth the looks of disgust on my kids faces as they turned their noses up 🙄🖕

Honey-Almond Ricotta Tart ...because I had all of those things on hand and wanted something sweet.
When your dad was a collector and you pick up some of his collecting tendencies. Three flying turtles! If I saw another, I'd buy it, too.
I'm on a quest to spend as little money as possible this week, and use of food we have available. The box of rice mix that's been in my cabinet for a year, combined with a can of tomatoes was a good start. We always have canned beans and frozen corn and flour tortillas sooooo, dinner. I would have been much happier with corn tortillas and homemade enchilada sauce, but not too bad for a throw together quick dinner! 👦🏼 👍🏻👍🏻 👧🏼👎🏻👎🏻 👶🏼👍🏻
The face of a girl determined to eat a cinnamon roll as big as her head.
If I fits, I sits.
Eggs goldenrod. Because eggs are cheap af right now and I happened to have cow milk in the fridge.
These @greentoysinc Build a Bouquet flowers are Eva's favorite! They get played with more than any other toy.
The rare meat treat. I wanted 🍗 chicken wings, and have yet to find a place in town that makes them to my liking. So baked at home it is. Baked wings with Valentina, baked potato, brussel Sprout and apple salad. 🍴 Dinner is served 🍴
My kids won't eat it, ask me if I care 🤷♀️ the less picky palates all agree, it's good. Brussel Sprout and apple salad with citrus dressing.
