Fridge Sneaky Peek

by Molly on April 19, 2014

in about the kitchen

I’m completely guilty of being nosy when it comes to food – I love checking out people’s shopping carts full of groceries, or what lies inside the fridge or freezer of a friend’s house. (I’m nosy but not judgmental, I promise! It’s a fascination…)

Anyway, there must be other weird people out there like me so I thought you might like to see what’s going on in our fridge and freezer this week. The contents don’t change much week to week, especially now – but I imagine as Finn grows bigger and hungrier for real food, we’ll have to stock all his favorites! (His faves right now: blueberries, strawberries, avocado, eggs, sweet potato, mac & cheese, hummus, Happy Puffs, teething crackers)

So here we go… and apologies for the crappy phone pics!

Power to the Potato

February 25, 2014 healthy habits

We’re back in Boston after a wonderful warm week away in Florida. Seriously, that trip couldn’t have come at a better time. This winter has been brutal, particularly since Finn and I are both getting major cabin fever! But spring is just around the corner, so I’m trying to think about my favorite foods of […]

Noodles for New Parents

February 11, 2014 salad

Cooking when you’ve just had a baby sometimes feels like the very last thing you want to think about. And here I am, with a 7-month-old baby, and still struggling to get dinner on the table most nights! So Phil and I stick with the dinners we feel comfortable making, week in and week out. […]

January 21, 2014 afk (away from kitchen)

I can’t believe it has been 5 months since I last posted anything here. Finn is a strong, chatty, toothy, giggly little man now. He’s starting to eat solids. He’s rolling over and over. He’s proving to us that he’s going to be one talkative little kid. And he leaves his mama very little time […]

Milking It

August 21, 2013 breakfast

Well, it finally happened! Say hello to Finnegan Charles: He was born on July 11th (I can’t believe he’s 6 weeks old already…) at 1:15AM, wide-eyed and interested in what this big world has to offer him. Apart from the lack of sleep, we are in love with our little man and so glad he’s […]
