So, here we are in Week 2 and I really should not be complaining. We have it relatively easy here in Massachusetts compared to other states and countries (as of Monday 3/23/2020 morning when I wrote this, who knows what it will be like tonight).

Menu Plan Monday: Isolation - Week One

March 18, 2020
The times we live in ...

This morning, I am already fighting outside induced boredom (so much nicer when I impose it on myself) and made some banana bread. Comfort food - FTW.

Menu Plan Monday: Whole Foods is a Zoo

February 24, 2020
This week I decided to be brave and go to Whole Foods myself instead of having someone else do it. On a Sunday. I thought I had self-control and all that.

The fact that 90% of the people in Whole Foods were shopping for other people made it a lot easier, a person couldn't even walk through the aisles! I had to keep parking my cart and maneuvering down aisles trying to find the things on my list. Bonus, I wasn't familiar with the layout, so it was most definitely not an efficient trip.

Menu Plan Monday: A Return to Clean Eating

It’s January, and you know what that means. Whole 30. I won’t bore you. My attitude towards it hasn’t changed, though, to be perfectly honest, I think I have deviated away enough from clean eating that I am feeling the difference now.

What do you do when you have a giant zucchini and can't grill it all for dinner?

Recipe: Allergen-free Banana Bread (that actually tastes good)

August 25, 2019
Yum

Joy is currently allergic to everything but still wants me to bake. My banana bread has evolved with our changing dietary needs and even Hank likes this version. This version includes vegan substitutions.

If you have a reaction to any of The Big-8 allergens, this might be the banana bread recipe for you. It's gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free, and can be made dairy-free and vegan.

Today feels almost like the first day of work at a new gig again. My team has been expanded and reorganized, I have new responsibilities and a title change. And ... That slight feeling of not knowing what is coming next. Today won't be business as usual.

As I got into work, my current direct manager came over to check on me and get a download of things that happened while she was on PTO and a temperature check on how I was feeling about the change. It is so odd for me to be treated this way. I can't decide if it's courteousness or if they think I am fragile (the only thing making me fragile is keeping my mouth shut and my opinions to myself), or if they genuinely care about what I think and feel about the situation. I'm a contractor, I go with the flow.


Later that same day ...
