catching up

grocery list/menu plan
I spent Sunday catching up on life around our house. Now our pantry is stocked, laundry is finished (and put away!), soups are stored in the freezer and my head is clear and ready for another week. It feels good to get things accomplished.

lots of fun recipes this week
I made the most delicious loaf of Mediterranean Olive, Sun Dried Tomato and Walnut bread from The Joy of Vegan Baking. So delicious! I'll share the recipe later this week. The second favorite recipe I made was the Pickle Soup from Love Soup...so yummy!

back at the sweater again...this time with a partner
I started working on my failed Ravelympics project again. It's coming along much better now and I hope to have it finished by this weekend.

Jon & the kitties
Jon and I have been burning the candle at both ends, so it was nice to have a day to get caught up on things and relax before the start of another busy week.

  2. How relaxing. I did all my laundry on Friday night (and put away) and it felt great to know all weekend that I did not have to do it! I received the bronze for my Olympic Knitting but I still feel pretty good about my progress. Your recipes sound yummy!

  3. I love filling the pantry and fridge, and planning my meals for the next few days :) I tend to go at least twice a week because I hate wilty veggies by the end of the week if I do a big shop once a week only.

  5. Oh, the simple, sweet bliss of a well-stocked kitchen, a warm kitty, clean laundry all put away, and getting to sit for bit, knowing you've accomplished enough for today!
    Enjoy it!

  6. I love a catching up sort of day, it can start out seeming like a never ending list of things to do, but by the evening your mind is so clear and it makes the week so much better. Pickle soup has me so curious, they are my favorite food, so a soup sounds devine :)

  8. Yes, please to that recipe! I love baking bread and olive and sundried tomato and walnut sounds divine. As a vegetarian, that Moosewood cookbook gets lots of use!

  9. That sounds great to have a freezer full of soup. I want to try that. Any recipe recommendations? I feel like I can never get caught up because of Melody. I am so exhausted!
    By the way, are those Knit Pick Zephyr's that I spy?

  11. That is exactly how I spend my Sundays--catching up! I wrote a big ole grocery list today and went through magazines looking for recipes in a 15 minute break I found today. It felt great!

  14. I wish I could remember what recipes I liked from the Sundays Moosewood book. I still do the cranberry apple bread every year. It has honey, but no other animal products:
