My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs. My links above are all new and current.

I have only positive things to say about Permission to Mother, an autobiographical account of a thoughtful mother and clinician who courageously writes from her heart, soul, brain, and personal experience; who is open to change in her views and opinions and is not guided by the safety of rules of any group or the status quo; she is guided by love and openness to the experiences life brings her and her family. Her process benefits her and those around her and those who read her words. And to add to that, the writing style and story telling ability here make it a very enjoyable read speckled with both the humor and seriousness of life. ~Laura Keegan RN FNP, author of Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy

Eating Again: Produce Pick-up

This is a list of what I got from the Organic Buying Club yesterday. I will be adding how I use it and who eats it and likes it. Lauren is also keeping track of her share.

I am often home on Thursdays mornings on pick-up day. Picking up a new share keeps me accountable in my kitchen. I know I need the room to clean and store fresh produce. I have gotten in a routine of cleaning out the fridge and using up left overs before the new batch comes home. I also have to clean my sink and counters so I can get to work with cleaning, chopping, storing the new food.

I love coming home in the evening with the fresh veggies, sorting, and tasting. It's like an adventure. We stir-fry on Thursday night. It is quick and easy and always a little different from the time before. John and I have the stir fry, the boys dig into the fruit. I had the left-overs for lunch on Friday. I had used up all my veggies from last time except for a few pieces of garlic. This stir-fry included a few veggies I had in the house from other shopping: green cabbage, mung beans, and tofu.

broccoli - few into Thursdays stir fry
baby bok choy - stir fry Thursday. I sauteed the thick stems with the onions and added the leaves last.
carrots few into stir fry
eggplant Sauteed with fresh squeezed lemon juice
escarole lettuce Looks like John and I are going to be eating a lot of salad.
romaine lettuce Juiced with oranges from the next pick up and apples from the farmer's market
vidalia onion - stir fry on Thursday
green peppers - gave mine to another member who was really looking forward to having peppers
spring mix salad, salad, salad
yellow squash- stir fry thursday Unfortunately 2 went bad before I used.
zucchini- stir fry thursday, I made this yummy treat seasoned to comply with our nutrition regimens. :) She said her kids love them! Seasoned slices with salt and pepper, coated with whole cheese and Roano cheese. John ad I ate most of them. William did his vomitting trick. It satisfied my cheese craving.

This fruit is going to be eaten quickly as a snack. We all like all this fruit.
valencia oranges - gone by Friday. I may order a whole case next time.
green grapes smoothie, grapes are a great sweetener
santa rosa plums snacks
bananas -disappeared by Saturday
blueberry - made some blue berry pancales for the boys. They were fussy about eating them.
strawberry snacks
golden kiwi - came with the share and I also special ordered a whole case. We all loved the golden kiwi. I sent a few home with Nate(not much, I am selfish about sharing my food), our teen friend who stays with the boys on Friday. He loves kiwi. Our host was wondering what I would do with a whole case of kiwi. I have a lot of mouths to feed. I think its going to go fast.
