  • cooking « Ciara Stewart
    Fall will come with its crisp apples and winter squash but for now I m eating as much sweet summer tastes as I can Today I made Caprese salad with cherry tomatoes from New Roots Organics basil picked from the garden and fresh mozzarella This is a dish that is only good in summer The tomatoes are everything and these tomatoes were stellar We signed up for New Roots Organics again It s like a CSA basket but they source organic produce from a much wider venue We had to stop it in the spring because I couldn t eat that many veggies myself toddlers don t particularly like veggies and Ryan was traveling a LOT I hated all the produce that was going to waste and watching J by myself didn t give me a lot of cooking time to have people over for dinner Ryan has a new job where he will hopefully be traveling less so we re giving it another go This has been our first week potato kale spring onion stir fry and caprese salad We still have an eggplant broccoli and some lettuce to use up before our next bin on Wednesday I need

  • An Awfully Big Adventure « Ciara Stewart
    thirty Three decades is an accomplishment and I ve only grown happier with age I have settled into my skin in a way I never did as a teenager As a writer I feel the pull to explain and chronicle and narrate parts of this journey I now have two places on the interwebs the blog for the stories in my head and this the blog for the real life Happily Ever After A journey in artistic motherhood and domestic goddessness There will be crafts There will be cooking There will be hiking There will be Peter Pan references There will be Broadway lyrics There might in the future be children s books In the words of Tim McGraw I think I ll take a moment celebrate my age The ending of an era and the turning of a page Now it s time to focus in on where I go from here Lord have mercy on my next thirty years My next thirty years will be the best years of my life Raise a little family and hang out with my wife husband Spend precious moments with the ones that I hold dear Make up for lost time here
