Korean Beef Stir Fry

Korean Beef Stir Fry

This was a last-minute, I-forgot-to-plan-supper meal. I was trying to use up the odds and ends from the refrigerator, and wanted something different than plain old fried rice.

Well, this ended up being a huge hit! Daniel was shoveling it into his mouth so fast he was flinging rice over his shoulder - not even kidding. Everyone else loved it too, and I was happy to have another filling, nutritious meal that uses cabbage.

Cavebaby is Born! (Two years ago)

Cavebaby is Born! (Two years ago)

Did you read yesterday's post? I shared a little about my pregnancy with Daniel, and how we came to choose a home birth.

My due date was May 2nd, which is Joseph’s birthday! I thought it would be neat for them to share a birthday, but since both older kids were born in May I did really want an April baby. Since I hadn’t had a single twinge or contraction since just before 36 weeks I really didn’t think it would happen. I had a feeling this baby was going to take his sweet time coming, and prepared myself to go past my due date, although I was sick to death of being pregnant and huge.

I love reading birth stories so I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to write this! Well, I do. It’s been a CRAZY 24 months! And I’ll be sharing more about why that is and all the things I’ve learned along the way.

oday is just a little about my pregnancy with Daniel, and how we came to choose a home birth for our third baby. Tomorrow, on Cavebaby's second birthday, I will post the actual birth story, for those who love to read them like I do!

Dairy-free Creamy Coffee

Dairy-free Creamy Coffee

One of the most ironic (and borderline cruel) issues mothers face while breastfeeding is that coffee commonly causes issues with baby. Ever had a newborn? They make you very tired. You kind of need coffee to survive.

Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

This time in the spring I crave fresh-tasting foods. Salads and fruit are a welcome change after heavy winter comfort food. Mexican food has lots of bright, bold flavors, and it's a great way to celebrate the warm weather and sunshine! 

Several years ago David and I saw the episode of Tyler's Ultimate where he makes this roasted tomatillo salsa. He uses it to make enchiladas, and those enchiladas are David's all-time favorite meal. They're incredible!

One Dish Pizza Sauce

One Dish Pizza Sauce

I kind of don’t know how to say this. This sauce doesn’t knock my socks off. Oh, it’s good. It tastes like pizza sauce and it’s great on our homemade pizza. David loves it and thinks it’s the perfect sauce. Every time I try to change it he huffs a little bit. He likes basic, no-frills sauce. I like fancy-schmancy, heirloom tomato Smitten Kitchen sauce, and things like that. So I guess I should say, if you like regular, normal, home-cooked food, you’ll probably think this sauce is just right.
