Southern Sustenance: Our journey toward a sensibly sustainable, purposeful, and soulful life


Like most families, we are busy!  Mark teaches, coaches, and drives a bus.  I work an hour away from where we live.  Both the boys are invovled in activities– church, Scouts, sports….

We do our cooking for the week on Sundays.  We prepare

  • Lunch of the boys
  • Lunch for Mark
  • Lunch for me
  • Dinner for the week

I wish I had the skills, the know-how, and the TIME to experiment in the kitchen and come up with my own recipes.  I just don’t.  So, what you will find here are a collection of recipes we love, the children actually eat, and are not too complicated to prepare.  Some recipes may be mine, but not many.  I do tweak recipes, and will share those, but I’ll link you to the original, too.

And, in case you were wondering, we use natural, organic/non-GMO food products as much as possible.
