Whoa, Sunday

in All Posts

First things first: let’s talk about The Pioneer Woman’s Crash Hot Potatoes.


So ridiculously good.  And so ridiculously easy.  It was a nice change from the ‘usual’ baked potato or even mashed potatoes – somewhere in the middle.


A Southern-style feast for a Southern-style side dish:


Stir-fry tempeh with BBQ Sauce

Crash hot potatoes


Steamed spinach


That was definitely the stand-out meal of the day.  The rest of my Sunday was spent run-run-running from one errand to the next.  We really had some errand catchin’ up to do.


Here’s (parts) of the rest of my day, in pictures.  Including tux-renting (for a wedding the Hus is in this summer)…


Chip eating…


Coconut water drinking…


Paint purchasing (a dark gray and a neutral tan, for the nursery and master bedroom, respectively)…


And packing hell.  Can’t forget packing hell.


I spy moving boxes that I’ve been hoarding for months, thrifted and gifted baby gear, sheets waiting to be folded, a spare bike tire, winter coats, ugly Christmas sweaters, a half a dozen packed boxes (wahoo!), a foam roller, and… my sanity.  Buried somewhere underneath all the chaos. 


Where are those moving fairies that I prayed for (they are closely related to the cleaning fairies)?

    i can’t even imagine decorating a nursery without knowing the gender! kudos to you 🙂 your dinner looks delicious. i love how take traditional meat heavy style meals and turn them veg!

  • Stephanie @ Legally Blinde March 18, 2012, 9:29 pm

    Looks like an awesome meal! Packing really is the worst. I’m always amazed at how much I’ve managed to store away – it never seems so bad until I start pulling everything out! Good luck, and it’ll be so worth it when you’re finished 🙂

    Doesn’t DadHTP double as a packing fairy?

  • Eve March 18, 2012, 9:47 pm

    There is NOTHING worse than packing up a house. Go Caitlin go!! 🙂

  • Amber @ Busy, Bold, Blessed March 18, 2012, 9:47 pm

    Packing is the worst! I’m in the process of trying to move into my boyfriend’s and the going is super slow haha. I’m also wishing that the spring cleaning fairies would show up and clean the house and go through some of his junk lol.

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) March 18, 2012, 9:51 pm

    Haha, yeah, those packing fairies hide just like the cleaning fairies. Not fun! Good luck with the packing Caitlin!

  • Katie @ Talk Less, Say More March 18, 2012, 9:55 pm

    Busy busy busy!! And if you find the packing fairies, please send them my way. if I’m lucky, I’ll need them soon too! 😉

  • Sneakers2sandals March 18, 2012, 10:00 pm

    Love Greys and neutrals 🙂 you are one busy girl. I friggen hate moving! It’ll be so amazing in the end though!

  • Colleen March 18, 2012, 10:21 pm

    I wouldn’t count on the packing fairies if they are related to the cleaning fairies. I have been waiting on the cleaning fairies, laundry fairies, and cooking fairies for a long time.

  • Laura @ She Eats Well March 18, 2012, 11:02 pm

    I believe in covering everything in BBQ sauce. It’s so freaking good. Looks like a lovely Sunday night dinner.

  • Erin March 18, 2012, 11:07 pm

    My husband and I are also moving soon (in May) and our house is covered in empty boxes, full boxes, and piles of things to donate. I feel you on the whole moving chaos thing!

  • Lea March 18, 2012, 11:30 pm

    Ugh packing is the devil. I hate it, though I’ve become a pro at it from living in dorms the past 3 years. I’ll be okay if I don’t see another brown cardboard box for a few years.

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing March 18, 2012, 11:57 pm

    Packing… ew! And those potatoes sound AMAZING!!!

  • Christine @ BookishlyB March 19, 2012, 12:02 am

    Packing is the worst. Almost as bad as unpacking… But, in the end it’s worth it. And if all else fails, use the belly as an excuse for a break 🙂

  • Amanda March 19, 2012, 12:56 am

    Packing is hell. Total hell. Do you guys have a moving date?

    • Caitlin March 19, 2012, 10:24 am

      End of the month! But we’re so slammed between now and then that it really needs to happen slowly over the next two weeks.

  • KT March 19, 2012, 1:07 am

    How did you prepare that tempeh? It looks delicious!

    • Caitlin March 19, 2012, 10:25 am

      Just fried in the wok with a little Earth Balance.

  • Kristen March 19, 2012, 1:57 am

    Ohh loooove dark grey for a nursery…what accent colors are you going to do?
    Good luck with all the packing…just think of how awesome everything will look in your new place!

    • Caitlin March 19, 2012, 10:25 am

      Not sure yet – definitely white furniture and some blue and green decals.

  • Clare March 19, 2012, 4:36 am

    Those potatoes sound SO GOOD 😉

  • Anneke March 19, 2012, 5:32 am

    Wow! The food looks so delicious! We also had a nice Sunday lunch and I tried out a new bean recipe. What does the coconut water stuff taste like? Seems interesing!

    • Caitlin March 19, 2012, 10:25 am

      It kind of tastes like dirty socks… But yummy dirty socks.

      • Amber K March 19, 2012, 2:22 pm

        lol, I love that description. I love Zico, but I can’t drink the “dirty sock” original. Pineapple, citrus, mango, any of the other flavors of coconut water are sooo good though.

  • Hillary March 19, 2012, 7:07 am

    Just seeing other people pack up their houses gives me moving anxiety. Gah! Good luck with getting it done!

  • Jodi @ Jodi, Fat or Not March 19, 2012, 7:32 am

    I spy baby carrots! I can’t get enough of them lately. Good luck with the packing!

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin March 19, 2012, 7:32 am

    Grey is a great choice for the nursery! I can’t wait to see how you decorate it. 😀

    Good luck with packing!

  • Erica March 19, 2012, 7:40 am

    I made those potatoes recently – soooo good! My hubby and I moved in December, across the country, when I was 25 weeks pregnant. Packing is hard work on a pregnant body, so take lots of breaks when you can!

  • Alex @ Raw Recovery March 19, 2012, 9:18 am

    The fairies were eaten by the gnomes. It’s ok, I have a gnome infestation too. Yes, gnomes eat fairies.

  • Ashley March 19, 2012, 10:52 am

    Ugh, I know moving can be exhausting! I can’t imagine doing it pregnant!
