As you can see by the minimal content on my blog, I’m quite new to the blog world. I’ve been steadily working on creating a framework for the content I’m posting bit by bit. So here’s a look at what’s coming:

Book reviews! I love to read, so I plan to post regular (monthly at least, or every other week) reviews of the books I am currently reading.

Recipes – I cook a lot for my family, and I’m always adjusting recipes to make them more healthy. Coming soon is a healthy (well, healthier) cupcake requested by my husband. He does not react well to sugar, so I am looking to reduce sugar and refined carbs while still creating a yummy cupcake. Stay posted for the results of my experiment!

Weekly meal plans with pictures of the contents of my CSA farm box. We get our produce from a local biodynamic farm; its fabulous! I did forget to photograph this week (like I said, I’m new to this…) but I will still post my meal plan.  We are fairly new to a traditional foods diet, so I am doing a lot of experimenting and learning by doing.

Homeschooling my preschooler – I will be posting my curriculum choices and activities as we start up our first year of (official) homeschooling.  This will include an emphasis on teaching the Bible also.

I’m also working on projects around my home, such as decorating the kids’ rooms, organizing my kitchen, creating schedules and routines that my three and a half year old can understand, and creating a household management binder.  I rent, so decorating and organizing cheaply and with movable, reusable items is a top priority.  We are also paring down and simplifying both our lives and our possessions.

I’m looking forward to sharing what I learn as I journey toward intentional homemaking and intentional parenting!

This week's CSA box

Our lovely produce for this week at our local CSA (community supported agriculture).

Now… to come up with a meal plan!  A stir fry is definitely called for with the bok choy and snow peas.  Green onion dip for carrots and snap peas, and cole slaw.  I’ll also roast some turnips, but I haven’t yet come up with a good idea for the kohlrabi.

This week we have, from left to right:

Rainbow chard
Bok choi
Green onions
Snow peas and snap peas
Lettuce mix
