Fancy Chicken Strips with Morel Mushroom Reduction

IMG_2757

  My new job is surround by some great food choices including my favorite grocery stores Erewhon and Whole Foods. I stopped by Whole Foods after work and quickly bought a few things including some Mary’s Organic chicken though I accidentally grabbed a package of tenders instead of split boneless chicken breasts.  Of course I didn’t realize […]

Farewell David Letterman

lettermanbnw

Tonight is the last night of The Late Show with David Letterman. I honestly feel the show should’ve ended 10 plus years ago. The past decade Letterman has reminded me of an employee who just phones it in every day and politically protects his domain while adding little to no value to an organization (network […]

The State of Dad Blogging

meandtheo

Before I begin, I realize it’s somewhat presumptuous for anyone to speak as an authority on a topic. I’m really not a dad blogger authority but I think I have some credentials in the blogosphere. For those who don’t know, I’ve been in the blogging game for over 10 years and have done it personally and […]

Why We Don’t Buy From Tyson, Perdue and Others

Last night’s HBO Last Week Tonight with John Oliver is a great example why our family moved to a sustainable food solution. If you didn’t see it, John took the chicken industry to task for treating its contract farmers like shit. Like chicken shit to be exact. Here is the full clip that shows how […]

Driving Electric

I’ve been driving a Fiat 500e for over a month now. When I noticed an article in Green Car Reports for an $87/month lease, I rushed out to my nearest Fiat dealership. It was quite a deal and I had been looking at elective vehicles (EVs) for a while test-driving the VW eGolf, Ford Focus […]

Star Wars and Battling the Dark Side of Our Teeth #BrushBattle

IMG_0801

Our household is pretty good about brushing our teeth.  Every morning and every night before bed the boys have to get ready, that includes brushing.  My wife and I used to do all the brushing for them, but as they got older we have turned the reigns of responsibility over to them.  Of course, this now means […]

Chicken Curry with Sweet Potato and Chickpeas

I haven’t been writing much lately because I have been busy with a new job I started almost three weeks ago. The new job is a bit longer of a commute which led me to look for some slow cooker (crockpot) recipes since I get home a little later than I used to and well […]

Martha’s Mac & Cheese

This recipe is nothing short of humble… Martha Stewart’s website even went so far to name the recipe “Perfect” in its title.  Fortunately, that title is well deserved with this recipe that lived up to the hype. I was on a conference call the night I was making this dish and everything was ready as […]

Blogger Self-Reflection at the Dad 2.0 Summit

chris_r2d2_DAD2SUMMIT

  I started blogging in 2005 when I started writing about Knowledge Management. It was a fairly obscure blog that I used as a way to increase my professional profile. I have no idea whether 1 person or a 1,000 people read it since there was no Google Analytics. I ended that blog when I left […]

Strawberry Quinoa Balsamic Salad

  “That’s the worst!  I will never ever eat that again in my whole life!” Famous last words from my soon to be 9 year old son.  Oscar, our other child, didn’t like it either.  So this was a complete fail if you are going to try it on kids or at least my kids. […]
