march 2


a breezy day

learning what it means to worship alongside two little ones

a long nap…too long

loving our med student friend who came over to check up on elisha 

loving med student’s wife for vacuuming our carpet 

going on a date with asher to whole foods

making friends with the cheese lady at whole foods

realizing this new friendship is such a good one

sampling cheese:  raw milk zamorano, raw milk taleggio, ossau-iraty

buying cheese:  taleggio, ossau-iraty

trying to find lemongrass to no avail 

a kitchen date with omar after the babes are in bed

  1. Thank you, Kate, for introducing us to Pollan, soulemama, orangette, and fresh pears.
    And for the joy of sharing life with you and your three guys.

  2. What a productive day! And keep enjoying those kitchen dates – fond memories to smile about through the years, especially when you can get him to cook. 🙂

  3. thanks, dad – glad you’re enjoying this!

    sheila – i would have to say that on the whole omar is the one that ends up cooking on such dates. very nice.

  4. What did the different cheeses taste like? As far as I know, we don’t have that broad of a selection here.

    Your meal sounds very tasty; I might have to do something similar to that once my husband comes home from Iraq.

  5. hey there, marie. let’s see – they were all sheep’s milk cheese so they tasted…sheepy? i must say it is kind of difficult explaining the taste of cheeses. the taleggio is a soft cheese – a bit softer than a brie. the ossau-iraty was a hard cheese and not too strong. so good. actually, omar and i were listening to npr’s “the splendid table” and a man was on talking about cheese from the pyrenees and mentioned ossau-iraty. he said it’s one of the oldest cheeses in the world and that ossau-iraty has been made the same way for close to 3000 years. so when i saw it at whole foods i had to try it. and it was well worth it. i’d definitely splurge on a fun meal for when your husband gets back!

  6. Kate–how did you learn to spell those cheeses? Do you have any comments on Velveeta? I bought my first (box) in 20 years and it wasn’t a good thing. If you come visit we will have some GOOD stuff on hand. Love you all 4!! (–)

  7. mimi – you are too funny. i’ll do my best to mask my horror at the velveeta slip-up 😉 but i must ask… were you thinking it would be a good thing? and as for the spelling. well, i always did make it down to the last two or so during spelling bees.
