{Menu Monday 12.21.20}

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. I’m a little relieved to not be traveling the passes thisContinue reading “{Menu Monday 12.21.20}”

{Menu Monday 12.14.20}

Happy #menumonday, friends! It’s the last week of school before Winter Break, and I’m so ready! Things will be a little different this year (who’s soooo tired of saying that?) but it will be lovely to have some down time, some relaxation, and some family time. I love that we get the full two weeksContinue reading “{Menu Monday 12.14.20}”

{Menu Monday 11.30.20}

Happy #menumonday, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I think I’m still full from our turkey dinner. We had a lovely meal with way too much food for just 6 of us, but it was a fun day, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. November is coming to a close and I’m definitelyContinue reading “{Menu Monday 11.30.20}”

{Menu Monday: 9.28.20}

It’s #menumonday, friends! Fall is in full swing around here. We’ve been having soup, cozying up with warm socks and good books and I’m not sad about it. The weather is looking to warm up a bit this week, so I’m hoping for one more last hurrah of summer, maybe we’ll get a chance toContinue reading “{Menu Monday: 9.28.20}”

{Menu Monday 9.7.20}

Happy #menumonday, friends! Last week, I spent most of the week in front of my computer screen, listening to and participating in multiple professional development sessions around remote learning, Covid safety, and social emotional learning. When the week was over, all I wanted to do was eat comfort food and relax, as my brain wasContinue reading “{Menu Monday 9.7.20}”

{Something Borrowed, Something Blue}

My husband wrote this last Saturday after they’d left for their honeymoon: “The bridge at Bowl & Pitcher has become a well-traveled part of the fabric our family history with countless trail runs beginning here. Today, before walking Bethany Meek across this bridge to present her to her groom we stopped so we could snapContinue reading “{Something Borrowed, Something Blue}”

{Menu Monday 8.10.20}

  Well. I did NOT see that coming. If you read last week’s Menu Monday post, you know that my daughter was getting married on Saturday.  It was beautiful and it all went off without a hitch!  It’s a little weird having a child who is married now, and I’ll be posting all about thatContinue reading “{Menu Monday 8.10.20}”

{Menu Monday}

If you’ve been around here for very long, you’ve probably noticed that I’m a big fan of rhythms, routines, and traditions. One of my favorite routines is menu planning.  Call me crazy, but I’m sucker for list making, and making a list of good food sounds just about perfect! Today, my husband and I celebrateContinue reading “{Menu Monday}”

{On Birthdays and Anniversaries: July Edition}

July is a slower month for us in a lot of ways… warm days of soaking up the sun, long summer evenings gazing into the backyard fire, slower mornings and general laziness descends upon us. It’s also slower when it comes to celebrations… We seem to frontload our year with birthdays, and then around MayContinue reading “{On Birthdays and Anniversaries: July Edition}”
