Traditions: Soup Sunday

The house is still quiet when I rise from my bed. Most mornings, the smell of brewed coffee greets me, but today I am the first to tread the creaking floorboards. After the normal Friday rituals— Bible, coffee, Instagram— I find myself in the kitchen, mixing flour and water together in anticipation of crusty bread.Continue reading “Traditions: Soup Sunday”

Happy #menumonday, friends! Can you believe it? Christmas week is here!! I’m excited, but it is a bit bittersweet. In a “normal” year, we’d be packing up this week and heading to Montana to visit family, but this year… Well, we are staying home.

Christmas Traditions: Food

This weekend, we will bake. Food is a favorite way to celebrate and mark traditions around here. In a year when many other traditional ways we would celebrate aren’t possible, we are holding tightly to this one. There will be literal piles of cookies in my kitchen. It makes me happy just thinking about it.Continue reading “Christmas Traditions: Food”

Happy #menumonday, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I think I’m still full from our turkey dinner.

It’s #menumonday! I gotta be honest. Today I’m feeling down. Yesterday, our governor announced new restrictions due to our case count here is Washington, and heading into my favorite season of the year, it’s a bit of a tough pill to swallow. This time of year, I’m normally in full on ‘Dance Mom’ mode, bakingContinue reading “{Menu Monday 11.16.20}”
