A Spicy Perspective
Monthly Meal Plan

August Meal Plan

Our August Meal Plan is loaded with summertime favorites and garden goodies. I’m planning 5 home-cooked meals each week, assuming you will eat out at least once and possibly have a left-over night.

Sautéed Eggplant with Honey

Fried Eggplant. It’s a dish people tend to have strong opinions about. Today I’ll show you how to cook eggplant in a way everyone will enjoy. Sautéed Eggplant with Honey and Thyme is melt-in-your-mouth tender and savory-sweet. A sure fire way to create eggplant converts.

Sustainable Pork Tour

If you’ve ever read my About page, you know I am a self-proclaimed pork-aholic. I love pork. Bacon, ham, tenderloin, chops, pork shoulder, sausage… I’ve never met a pork product I didn’t like. Therefore I felt it would be beneficial to learn more about how pigs are farmed here in the US.

Running For Haters

I’ve always hated running. There, I said it. For years I have tried to enjoy running. I’ve given it my all on multiple occasions, only to find myself dreading each workout and wishing for injuries. As sick as that sounds, it’s true.

California Milk Tour

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to fly cross-country to San Fransisco for the California Dairy Tour, hosted by the California Milk Advisory Board. I had a deliciously wonderful time tasting California-made dairy products and visiting local farms and artisan cheese makers.
