Adding up the little things

Our dinnertime conversations have become quite formulaic: We talk about the events of our days and if we are close to a weekend, we share any upcoming plans. (If it is slow going, I will tell a fanciful story about my day that features a dragon just to see if anyone is paying attention.) Some nights this goes better than others. We ask a lot of specific questions about our son's day, but we find that he doesn't have a good recall for the…

Japanese Hibachi Style Noodles

Japanese Hibachi Style Noodles

 

 

I frequently find it difficult to come up with dinner ideas.  I get so bored having the same meals over and over.  Brandon doesn’t very often have input on dinner, so he is of very little help.  To my surprise he came to me the other day and said….

Brandon: Hey mom, I really wished we could have those noodles we had in Colorado with Dad at that one…

You might be making your spouse fat

My husband and I both work full time. And there was a long period where we worked in the same company (albeit different departments). And we both worked really long hours.



Then we had our little guy and life had to change: There were more important aspects to our life together than work.…

Taking work stress home

My son loves my office. On the few occasions I've taken him to visit, he received lots of attention from my coworkers, treats, hot chocolate and got to play with the stuff at everyone's desk. He calls my coworkers "his coworkers" and requests to talk to them on the phone sometimes.…

Boiled pigeon's feet for dinner

It's 6:30 pm. I've put in a nine-hour day at the office, I've just gotten home and I'm at the stove. I am sauteing, chopping, and seasoning something delicious, when my son comes downstairs.…

Why we don't eat cupcakes

We eat dinner as a family whenever possible. And although I have been a little slack about it lately, we try to eat our meals family style because they teach children about portion control.



What I didn't…

Meals on the run

I am a fast eater. Probably too fast. Most days it takes me longer to prepare a meal than it does for me to eat it. This comes in handy for all those times I eat lunch at my desk (especially since I don't seem to suffer from heartburn), but it is definitely not something I want my son to inherit.…

What's your stress hour look like?

Most nights, when I get home from work, I immediately start cooking dinner. The first hour after I get home is a bit of a blur: There is food to prepare, people to greet and those morning chores to complete (if I didn't finish them earlier). If I can get dinner on the table by 6:45, then it is a really good day.…

Is eating out a luxury if you have a baby?

Me and my husband, we love to eat! :-D We love to cook (well, my husband does, I just bake), we love to go out for a delicious dinner and when choosing a travel destination, good food is a must.

Compared to other parents who I hear are complaining that they haven’t eaten outbecause of their baby for months, I must…

"Food tastes better in the Dining Room"

My son's birthday just passed. Since it's the beginning of the week and we'll be celebrating on the weekend, we knew we still had to do something ON his birthday so I baked a cake and cooked dinner. We always eat food at the same time, which is whatever time I finish cooking, but we eat in different rooms. My kids eat in the kitchen, I usually eat in my room while watching one of my favorite shows and my husband likes to eat in…

Dinner for one: Eating by yourself

I know several moms who have multiple children with active schedules. Those Moms spend their evenings and weekends chauffeuring their children to various sports activities, musical activities and dance lessons. I'm always amazed by that (think of the planning and coordination that takes), and I usually have one question for them: Where do you find the time for dinner?…

Family dinner time: There's an app for that

When I was little, I was an avid reader. (Despite my 100 challenge last year, I'm hesitant to describe myself that way now, because I find it difficult to find the time to read.) I used to read after school, before school and sometimes in the middle of the night with a flashlight (sorry, Mom). I remember one time I tried to read at the dinner table.…

Portuguese Pizza! Eggs and Ham, Yes I am!

I absolutely love this pizza! I was craving it so much that I had to call my mom to get the recipe. She also gave me 2 nice tips to make the pizza even more tasty! In Brazil, we call this pizza a "Pizza Portuguesa". What a delicious fusion of flavors from the ham, onions, boiled egg, and kalamata olives! Many might be tempted to leave out one of the ingredients like the boiled egg, onions, or olives, but please don't! All these ingredients are essential, as they work together to create…

Why we now eat family-style

A few weeks ago, we started letting our son serve himself his own food at dinnertime. Up until that point, I would bring him his pre-plated food and be met with a barrage of complaints…

Brazilian Ham Lasagna With Red Meaty and White Cheesy Sauce

A great friend of mine just had a beautiful baby boy, and BOY OH BOY, I know how tough it is to make dinner and take care of a newborn! So, I offered to prepare her favorite meal. She told me that her favorite dish was lasagna, even joking how she must be related to Garfield somehow... "Lasagna...", I said, thinking that I actually haven't had my mom's wonderful lasagna for a long, long time. I think the last time I ate her lasagna was 8 years ago, when she came to visit us to see her new…

Welcome to dinner: Pass the pancakes

I know I don't reference my Dad a lot in this blog, but that's mostly because I am really good at apologizing to my Mom. (Sorry, Dad.) Although my parents separated when I was little, I have some very nice memories of my Dad. For example, sometimes, he would make us waffles for dinner. It was pretty cool, because waffles are awesome and it added a touch of whimsy to an otherwise regular week day. He'd even put chocolate chips into…
