Lots of Sand and Easy Dinner

Yesterday, the toddler and I got to spend some time digging in wet sand. Lots of sand. And the toddler got REALLY into it. And the sand got everywhere…

When we got home, I made an easy dinner. I had cooked some brown rice and roasted some veggies in the morning. We ate the rice and veggies with marinated tofu (a Farmers’ Market purchase), lots of fresh basil, and an over-easy egg. A simple, super quick and yummy dinner! :-)

Questions: When was the last time you got really dirty? The toddler and I had sand and mud EVERYWHERE… What have you been cooking/eating lately?

I got some questions regarding raw milk on my last post. I will answer your questions and tell you my thoughts on raw milk and raw milk products in my next post.

Be well,


  1. I love the different ways you find to eat eggs. I need to be more creative with them.

    I don't remember the last time I got really dirty. That's a bit sad. Getting dirty usually equals fun. And not just according to the toddler.

    Aww he must have had so much fun. I get pretty dirty in my garden. Does that count?

  3. What I wouldn't give to be a toddler again.

  4. when i was in s africa i felt like i had layers of dirt on me for months. totally worth it.

  5. I have a sudden urge to go find a sandpit now! The last time I got really dirty was when I had a leak in my apartment and the ceiling fell through a couple of months ago. I was covered in dust from head to toe!

    Lately I have been eating a lot of salads and a lot of snack bars (Lara, Clif, etc) that I realised expire soon...I haven't been eating bars much for months, but hate wasting food so am ploughing my way through my stash!

  6. Oh can't wait to hear what you have to say!

    I love getting really dirty, in sand especially. The last time I got really dirty was last weekend, when we were preparing our garden! I took a shower and the shower had to be cleaned right afterwards :) It was bad.

    The tofu and veggies looks fantastic. I love the egg on top of the rice!

  7. I'm really looking forward to your milk post!

    I got really dirty the last time I cut the grass. Half of our back yard is really shady so it's mostly dirt, but there are patches of grass that I had to cut. By the time I took my shoes and socks off my legs looked black and my feet were white white!

    I've been making a lot of simple veggie dishes.

  8. I get really dirty almost every day. Sitting in the garden weeding, running around the farm. I do laundry of 'work clothes' more than I do my regular day work clothes.

  9. He looks like he's having so much fun! Love it ;)

  10. Isn't it amazing where sand can hide on kids??? LOL! I got pretty dirty a few weekends ago while gardening. My poor tub hasn't seen so much dirt in a long time!! ;)

    So much fun playing in the sand! And this simple meal is just perfect for the season.

  12. He looks like he had a blast. I hate getting dirty, but I guess I do when I am getting out of my wet suit at the beach. I always get gravel and stuff on me along with sand and dirt. Then I have to get into my car.

    The dinner looks great. It is awesome you can get such a great looking meal that doesn't take too long to prepare.

  13. Yummy! Your easy dinner is right up my alley! Anything with rice + tofu and I'm in (you'll have to tell me what you use to marinade!).

    I know it's not "dirt," but I went swimming (like, full body under water swimming) for the first time in years last weekend and it felt great! It was so nice not worry about getting my hair wet, or my makeup coming off, I just dove in!

  14. Last time I got dirty? probably my "mud run" last year. That was fun! (and super hard!)

    Your egg meal looks really good! Can't wait to start making "family meals" soon!

  15. That dinner looks jummie! I haven't got that much inspiration for cooking lately. But made a great salad yesterday, pic on my blog, new recipe and it tasted great.

  16. That meal looks super-delicious!!

    Love the toddler pics as always!

    Have a great weekend, Andrea!

  17. Too cute! I dig in my garden all the time and I dug up potatoes just yesterday. It takes me a good scrub down to get all the dirty off my hands and out from under my nails - ew!

    I'm anxious to hear your take on raw dairy. It's not something I know much about :)
