My Everyday Life: Week 41

Here's what this past week looked like:

It rained this week. It was kind of exciting.

On my way into work, I stopped up at the Marin Headlands to check out the view. Nice detour.

Painting & popcorn.

It's something fun to do when it rains.

And then it turns into shredded cheese for snack & Brussels Sprouts Salad making for Mama.

The leaves on the trees in our front yard are changing colors.

You can see this through my rainy windshield.

Egg separation for nuts.

Which I burned...

Brown rice bread with avocado on top. Breakfast this AM.

This was 7:00AM.

Wasteland. Aftermath. Coffee cake recipe coming soon. It's fantastic.

When life gives you Meyer Lemons, you roast them with chicken.

And then you eat it with mashed potatoes, spinach & red wine.

It's getting SOOOO dark out early. No like.

Cozy with candles.

This week Cooper started eating apples whole.

He went from only eating them peeled & sliced and now whole!  Baby steps.

Mushroom tacos & iced tea.

Switching things up with an omelette for breakfast.

Leftovers from my Super Spinach Salad. I added cashews & avocado to this batch.

I finally hung up my clock in the kitchen!

Linen drawer.

I sauteed cabbage in butter with onions and added a fried egg on top. Dinner!

Made breakfast for Casey. Eggs with cheese, orange peppers & onions on charred tortillas.

This is what I ate. Avocado on charred tortilla with Chipotle Tabasco

.  I'm kinda hooked on that stuff right now.

I had a pretty stressful week . Looking at clouds kept me sane.

Monday night calls for sushi from Whole Foods.

Morning in the kitchen. I need to plant that succulent.

Breakfast last Sunday. I made crispy prosciutto & biscuits.  You can see how to crisp prosciutto here.

I think it's important to eat a GOOD breakfast as a family on the weekends.

    I love coming and seeing 'my everyday life' every weekend- it's my ritual! I also adore avocado on toast- the bread I've found that tastes best is 'Udi's' gluten free whole grain- I just love it and even better each slice is only 45 calories! mmmmm

  • Beautiful pictures. Simplicity at its best.

    Do you have a recipe that you use for the biscuits? I have failed miserably at making biscuits, and I need to redeem myself! Thanks!

    mmmm! mushroom tacos. I want to make those soon. do you use any spices for sauteeing the mushrooms? normally I'm a butter & white wine & thyme kinda girl, but probably not for tacos.

    love these weekly roundups--one of my favorite parts of sunday!

  • October 14, 2012

    Totally agree with you on weekend family breakfasts! Really important! Fantastic pictures as always!

    Sooo much good food happened in your life this week! Congrats on making the switch to whole apples with Cooper! I still have to est mine sliced. lol...Yes, apparently I'm 5.

    I am definitely enjoying the color change but not the dark so early thing. Hope you're having a great evenin!

    Ok Tracy, I am sorry but I laughed so much at the burned nuts.. it's not because I'm an awful person, I promise, really, but whenever I make some spicy nuts for a dinner party I burn them every time!!! No matter what I do they end up burned. I've tried lowering the oven temperature, baking them for a shorter time.... I burn them. Such a waste.... and yes just in case you're wondering the nuts are raw before I put them in the oven....
    I love your linen drawer, so much that I will not iron my tea towels anymore!!!! they look awesome!!!!
    I have to say I am so inspired by your posts, your pictures, your recipes... I can't stress that enough. I can see you live near San jealous. I visited SF two years ago and I've been begging my husband to move there ever since, I have my little girls convinced!!! but we live in Barcelona and he won't hear about it.... Oh how I wish I could find work there!!!!

    I love the map idea on your mantel! It makes me wish I had one to decorate! : )

  • October 15, 2012

    Your week of meals was so much healthier and more awesome than mine of airport food and late-night meals. Totally jealous right now!

  • October 15, 2012

    Everything looks delicious...I especially love all the tacos and charred tortillas in there :)

    You're right, family meals are SO important!

  • October 15, 2012

    What are the pics next to your first set of tacos?

  • October 16, 2012

    Love the Sunday biscuits. Hope things are less stressful soon. Clouds help. As do avocados. Cannot wait to make your super spinach salad - looks aaaaamazing.

    Looking at clouds destresses me too. It reminds me of how tiny I really am in the big scheme of things and that life is quite simple if you let it be.
