Oh, Atlanta I hear you calling…

I ran away from home on Sunday. 85-southbound to Hotlanta. So what warrants a spontaneous 3 hour road trip? My dear friend Melissa Hayes is PREGGERS!!! 6.5 months to be exact – well not exact, if you ask her she’ll say, “6.5 months I think, I don’t know…” and then give you the very innocent sweet Melissa […]

Fall is here.

Well, not officially… but the fall produce is certainly here. Apples can be found on every farmers table – and the squashes – the winter squashes are popping up everywhere! Greens are back! Which was my inspiration for last night’s side dish. I was thawing out some bacon for breakfast this morning – I may have bought […]

If at first you don’t succeed… try, try again.

Welcome home to me! We just got home from a trip to Austin, TX – maaaaaaaaaaan, I love that city! And, I miss living there very much. But, I am also glad to be home and able to cook my own food. My stomach revolted against me on Monday – as did my nervous system […]

BACON!

I loooooooooooooooooove bacon… maybe more than okra. maybe. Bacon has become a rare treat in our household. Since we purchase such a large quantity of beef at one time we end up eating a lot of beef for breakfast. Plus, good locally sourced bacon is a tough gig to find. I get most of my pork […]

Shelley Proffitt Eagan talks beef, grassfed beef.

I find myself in many a’convo about meat. Where do I buy it? How did I chose Proffitt Farms? How do I choose a farmer outside of Charlotte? This was the latest conversation I had with my in-laws last weekend. Of course, I am always super excited to get someone switched over to grassfed, local meat! I could […]

Dead in the water

Well, we’re all moved. WOOHOO! Thank goodness for friends and family that helped us get everything moved, unpacked and put away. It took a full weekend of hard work, sweat and NOT ONE TEAR 😉 until… I went to turn on the oven… nuttin’… stove… nuttin’… No dinner for us. Wah, wah, wah… So I apologize […]

The Dirty South

My parents have lived in Baton Rouge for the past 6 years or so – I have always LOVED Cajun food, and their relocation to the dirty south has given me even  more of an appreciation for the cuisine. I crave a good crawfish boil, gumbo and etouffee. Carter and I have been planning a […]

Kelp Noodle Spaghetti

Hmmmmmmm…. well… kelp noodles. I have been wanting to try these for about a year now – ask Lorrie Calupas. For some reason it was one of those things I didn’t want to order online. This past weekend I wondered in to the new shop  ecolicious in Plaza Midwood. They are a vegan shop focusing on animal cruelty free products for […]

Movin’ and Shakin’

It’s been busy around the Lewis house this week! Saturday was the Fran for Fosters fundraiser (over $2500 raised for a local rescue group); the annual UCF cookout and an engagement party for our friends Meig & Jeff… that was all in one day. Sunday was filled with building and packing boxes for the big move coming up […]
