I've had some questions on what we usually eat. I love simple meals. A few times a week I am trying out different recipes, but we usually eat the same things. I should get more creative! Kimball and I do go out to eat. Maybe once or twice a month.
Eggs. Always. There easy and Dieter loves them.
Smoothie with milk kefir and pineapple. We only have this when I have pineapple.
On Sundays we have sausage.
Usually leftovers. I loved having soups all winter. It was so easy to have for leftovers. Pizza. It is easy to cook up for Dieter.
Ground hamburger with salt.
Steamed broccoli and cauliflower.
I have to be more creative for dinner. If I remember, I will start cooking a chicken or beef roast in the afternoon.
I am big on sourdough pizza right now (for Kimball and I).
Pork chops. Our whole family loves those.
Spagetti is easy.
I've been making these biscuits a lot.
Home canned beans.
Home canned honey peaches.
Squash. We don't have any more in the root cellar. It is so expensive to buy, but I still do it.
Now that it is getting warmer. I will be looking for a lot more crock pot recipes.
We all love these almond biscuits. Coconut flour bread is good.
If I need a treat, I cook custard, pudding, or gingersnap cookies. They are all simple.
Raisins. Dieter loves them. Really people. I think he would choose raisins over anything.
Dried apricots or nectarines.
What Samantha Eats
Chicken and stock.
Steamed broccoli and cauliflower/ vegetables.
Eggs. Boiled (I only give her the yoke) and scrambled.
Dried Apricots. I let her suck on them until they fall apart. Then I take them.
I give her the crust on Dieter's pizza.
There you have it. I'm sure I have missed many things but that gives you a idea. Oh, and I am trying not to snack and trying not to give Dieter snacks. You might think I am strict, but he eats better when he doesn't snack. I will give him a snack in-between lunch and dinner.
Hello again! I have been absent for a couple of days. I had some weird bump removed off of my leg...my leg has been sore and I haven't been motivated to do anything. It is feeling much better today! And, I can't let the tornado (which has currently visited every room) continue to destroy the inside of my house! :) I think I will spend all morning just doing dishes (I don't have a dishwasher...well, yes I do...it's me) :)
I can't believe I have ever bought biscuits! These are so easy to make and hardly take any time. I do want to try a batch to freeze. It would be great to just pull them out of your freezer and bake them!

Hello! Welcome to a little bit of my life! I stay home with my two beautiful children and my husband is a fence contractor. I love to cook, collect vintage things for my home, make quilts, and read. I love the evenings when my kids are sleeping and I can spend time with my husband. (Does that sound terrible? I do love my kids) :) Thanks for visiting!
