Oops! And an Update

Pondering the great outdoors while helping make pancakes

Pondering the great outdoors while helping make pancakes

If you receive updates from me via e-mail, I apologize for the empty message two days ago.  I updated the blog and it altered my newsletter settings, which I didn't realize (I'm not as technically savvy as I'd like to be).  

Also, we've stopped the Whole30.  The stomach bug we got while on vacation didn't go away as quickly as we hoped it would and we just needed a few carbs in our life.  I'm sure we'll try it again at some point (and we eat that way 90% of the time), but this isn't the right time.  I have been cooking on a regular basis and I have a new go-to weeknight approach to dinner, which is to purchase fish or meat and top it with Ali's Sauce Niçoise.  I made this twice last week (served once over halibut and once with chicken).  It couldn't be simpler to make, you likely have the ingredients on-hand, and it is delicious.  I also made these Oven Ribs from Smitten Kitchen - I omitted the brown sugar and they were still fall-off-the-bone tender and flavorful.  We ate ribs with corn on the cob - Blythe took a bite out of every piece of corn while "helping" me shuck it.  Note the tiny teeth marks in the ear of corn in the bottom right corner of this photo.

I'm getting back into the groove of posting so thanks for still reading and there will be more to come!
