Our Very Own Eggs

There is nothing like a meal straight from the backyard in January in Maine - warm scrambled's what's for breakfast. The kids are feeling the heat coming off the eggs in this picture.

Martin Luther King Junior Day and Quiche

We feel blessed to live in a college town. Especially one that integrates so beautifully into the community...demonstrated by the annual children's celebration they hold on Martin Luther King Jr. day. This is the second year we have attended and my kids get so much out of it.

Inspired by Mavis Butterfield and her web site One Hundred Dollars A Month, I am taking our food budget to an extreme. Extreme, for us, meaning $100 a week! Well, tonight with no meat in the house, I made a couple of quiches - quick to throw together, smelling scrumptious in the oven, and tasty enough to satisfy all in the family, except my super duper picky son.

A big shout out to our lovely girls who are weathering this cold first winter quite well and continue to produce four to six eggs a day for us... Yes, this picture is an old summer photo! Happened to be the one I found on my iPad at the moment...

Winter Fun

We are a couple of weeks into 2014 and we have a been having a lot of winter fun and somehow have avoided all the various bugs that seem to be swirling around us...
Getting some good mountain time...

And some fun winter hikes...

And some yummy baking including trying a homemade bagel recipe that my neighbor shared with me... They were a little funny looking but tasted great!!
