Daily Moments – Week 3


Thanks for coming back. Here we are at week 3 and I’m still taking pictures. As I’m typing, Silas is screaming at the top of his lungs because he’s tired and cranky and woke up early from a nap. So this post will be short . . . of words. Enjoy.

My camellias are blooming.  Okay, spring. Please back up for just awhile longer. I haven’t had a full winter. After 3 years in the South, I’m still not used to these warm winters.


Getting a head start on Valentine’s Day.


The start of a new week and bone broth. I’m pulling out all the arsenal to protect the boys from the flu.

Sticky marshmallow was everywhere after they were done.


I love evenings that end like this.


Dinner. I love the Sprouted Kitchen.

Meal planning. Everyone does this, right?045One of my culinary Everest . . . poached eggs. These were on top of mashed avocados, arugula and toast.

Enjoy your week.

  1. Cute kiddos, Tara! Do you make your bone broth in the crock pot? I made some on the stove a few weeks ago, but it didn’t sit well with me or Paul. Wondering if I did something wrong. What’s your methods?

    • Hey Mariel! So I used a chicken carcass leftover from last week (I had roasted a whole bird). I added 3 carrots, 3 ribs of celery, bay leaves, peppercorns, salt, 2 onions, and garlic. I cooked it in a crock pot for 8 hours and then strained out the solids. It turned out pretty good, but I’m wondering if what I did is considered a broth? and not stock? Not sure. I made chicken and dumplins with it, but I think it would work for any soup base. I got the idea from several sites. I hope that helps.

  2. Meal planning… you are not the only one! Best way to buy groceries on a budget. Another good open faced sandwich I love: toast, mashed avocado, arugula, sliced roma tomatoes, S&P, shallot vinaigrette all topped off with aged Parmesan shavings. Yums!

  3. Oh, Tara, Brooks looks so much like I remember you at his age in that picture with the helmet…….and Silas! Love the pic of him upside-down where you can see those big-boy teeth shining! Thanks for sharing…….
