Just as Nice

in All Posts

So glad to be home!  My taxi couldn’t navigate the streets of Charlotte fast enough.


Everything is just how I left it. Pippa is still in charge, Maggie is still always underfoot, James is still aloof, Henry’s sweet as ever but his new haircut still looks doofy, and the Husband is still… well, I’m not sure what he’s up to, because he’s still busy working!


Oh wait – there’s one difference.  Hardly any food in the fridge.  Where did it all go?!


At least there was enough for a healthy lunch.



Steamed collard greens



Tamari sauce (kind of like soy)


I think a trip to the grocery store is in order!

    That’s some good stuff for not having anything in the fridge! Welcome home Caitlin! Enjoy your men tonight!

    I always feel the same way when I get home too, Caitlin. It’s about an hour from the airport to my house and it can never pass fast enough!

      Those are bellas, yes. I just slice them and pan fry them with a little coconut oil and some tamari sauce. I’ll do a post about this soon because many people asked!

    Welcome home! Pippa looks like a gray version of my Maggie-pie. She is a black and white tuxedo cat who rules the roost in our house (which is good.. we have four cats!)

    Your lunch looks delicious. I am always looking for new lunches to take to work with me. I am a nanny so I have access to a kitchen. I could make that! Yum!

    Ugh, I hate being greeted with an empty fridge when I return home from a trip. I even try to do some grocery shopping before I leave just so it isn’t so daunting when I return (however, that only does so much since produce & other fresh items will likely be on their last leg by the time I return.) Once I finally tackle it and get everything restocked & organized, I feel so accomplished and refreshed 🙂
