My yard is overgrown with hydrangeas right now, and I couldn’t be happier about it. I love the way that certain varieties will change color, depending on the acidity of the soil. But mostly, I just love how they look and I could sit and stare at my front yard all day.
(If I didn’t have three kids.)
This week was a tough one for me, from new camp routines to a really startling property tax appraisal from our county to four solid days of a nasty stomach virus. I am still on the mend.
But, I have managed to find lots of nuggets from around the web, so let’s get started.
I am trying to get more adventuresome with my cuts of meat, and lamb shoulder is on my “must-try” list. When I saw this recipe, I knew it was the impetus that I needed to buy a shoulder and give it a go.
I may pair these jicama fries with the lamb, except I usually nibble all the way through my jicama before it gets served to others.
Kresha at Nourishing Joy always has such lovely posts, and this one about Ideas for Summertime Hospitality is no exception.
Since I can’t eat nightshades, I am on a perpetual hunt for the perfect tomato-free beef stew, so this Farmhouse Beef and Bacon Stew from Nourished Kitchen caught my eye.
Grain and gluten free chocolate-covered donuts. For when the kids say, “But everyone else gets to eat donuts.”
Looking to add a little something to perk up your water? Natural Family Today has some really great options that are easy and homemade.
Naked Avocado (and yes, I love that blog name!) serves up Vegan Banana Pudding with Nutter Butter Crumble that is Paleo-adaptable, too. (Most Paleos avoid peanuts, but I am sure many nuts could sub.)
Baby A turns ONE this week, so I have been reflecting a lot on what I was doing this time last year. One thing I was doing was eating every single lemon I could get my hands on. I sure wish this Lemon Love recipe roundup had been posted this time last year!
If you walk or stand, you will want to check out the “One Alignment Cue That Changes Everything” from Fascia Freedom Fighters. (Believe her. It really does.)
