Happy Fall

Things have been going non-stop since I got home from the road trip. I flew down to California to meet my nephew Nolan a couple of weekends ago, and got to see my niece Avery too, along with my parents, grandma, sister & brother in law, and my brother & sister in law. Sadly my Great Uncle Pat passed away the week prior to my trip but I was able to go to his memorial service, and visit with the aunts, uncles and cousins there. Big family time. Here are some photos from the trip.

I know I promised recipes, BUT I am currently in the middle of a health detox so I doubt you want to replicate any of my experimental recipes. I won’t get into the complicated details of my self-inflicted torture, but I will say that just removing salt from the diet necessitates some creative thinking. Lots of garlic, herbs, and fresh veggies are my world right now. And luckily the bounty from our garden means free delicious goodness every day.

Back at you next week!

P.S. I intend to make myself a delicious blackberry birthday pie when this thing is over.


  1. Hope you are ok! Sorry we didn't get to see you when you were here, but it sounds like you had a lot of much needed family time going on. Interested to hear about your health detox, I am in a similar situation. Love YA

  2. For anyone interested in cutting back on salt or other foods I've found some excellent resources.
    1) Regarding salt intake, MayoClinic has a great article:
