About Tabi

I love the simple things in life, like, wearing skirts and going barefoot. Cooking glorious meals to feed friends and family. Trying to find healthy food at the grocery store on a limited budget. Spinning wool, (yes that's from sheep and goats and llamas), crocheting, and weaving. Picking fresh produce out of a garden, pouring real maple syrup over pancakes, and making a warm and loving home for my family. However, I don't use only whole wheat flour. I do not take reusable grocery bags to the store with me. I indulge in boxed meals when I must. I prefer sugar to honey. I do not shop at Whole Foods, Trader Joes, or Earth Fare except on very special occasions when I have extravagant amounts of money to spend. I HATE cloth diapers. I believe in breastfeeding babies, but not until they're five. I buy pre-made baby food. Somewhere in all this, I want to find the balance between the fanatical and the uncaring. Somehow, I hope to settle on doable.

Sweet Potatoes and Two

Little man turned 2 yesterday.  Although he insists he’s one, or three.  And this morning I heard five when Seth was asking him. Anything but two is acceptable.  I feel quite accomplished in the fact that we’ve kept a child … Continue reading

Tikka Masala, Naan, and Little Man

This week has been interesting.   One morning jack managed, without taking his PJ’s off, to remove his diaper and push it completely down one leg of his jammies without us knowing. That is until he peed all over me … Continue reading
