Recent Meals

    Looks so satisfying!
    Where are you finding the Kale Kim-chi? I love Kale and I love Kim-chi.
    I really enjoy your blog. Your children are adorable. We visited Charleston and loved , loved it. My husband is a golfer so we stayed at Kiawah, golf for him… me… some shopping and exploring. I loved the La Fontana and my favorite was Goat sheep Cow….yum. We did do Obstinate Daughter but found it way too “fried-food ish”…( high calorie).. when in your 60’s one tends to really watch what you eat.
    Hope to return as your city —-as it is charming and so much to see and do. ( oh we had a fabulous guide , 1:4 on a great walking tour, we just loved the tour). Take care!

    Hi Natalie, I enjoyed this post thanks for sharing your meals! Always interested in new meal ideas. I just wanted to let you know that I’ m unable to pin this on Pinterest, or any other post from your site. I keep getting the message “Sorry, this image is broken. Please pick a different image.”

    I have recently had some trouble with Pinterest so I wasn’t sure if it’s just my computer/account, but other sites seem to be working ok for me currently. Thought I would let you know.
