Hello my friends!
Rainy season has officially begun here and I couldn’t be more excited! Me and rain go way back. Ever since I can remember, when it would get stormy out and the rain started to fall, all I wanted to do was be out in it. Feeling the drops on my bare skin. And I still do that to this day. My heart skips a beat and I run to any door I can find and wait for that oh so familiar feeling of those tiny droplets hitting my skin. Makes my heart feel so calm. Like I can let out a breath I’ve been holding in. Even W knows now how the rain makes me feel and opens any door or window that is close so that I can see and hear it. I’ve often wondered if it’s the Native in me that makes me feel so connected to rain…
We have a busy week ahead, so needed some quick, low maintenance dinners that can be put together in a flash. We always like to balance healthy meals with some that…aren’t so healthy, but feed our hearts and souls. Enjoy friends!
What We’re Eating
July 25th – July 31st
Saturday: Crunchy cabbage salad with sesame ginger dressing and grilled chicken
Sunday: BBQ beef and beans with rice – good for Sunday since it cooks slow and is low maintenance
Monday: Mushroom egg rolls – not Chinese egg rolls, more like an egg pancake rolled up 🙂
Tuesday: Loaded Italian pasta salad
Wednesday: BBQ chicken sandwiches with slaw and oven fries
Thursday: Baked potato with turkey chili
Friday: Peanut butter and jelly pancake bake!
Dessert for the week: Raspberry Jell-O pie!! A childhood favorite 🙂
We can’t wait to update y’all on our recent life changes! They are good and scary and happy and make my stomach hurt 🙂 Change is hard friends. We think about it, we plan for it, we dream about it, but when it actually happens, it can be one of the scariest, hardest things we have ever done. No amount of planning can prepare us completely can it? And unfortunately change doesn’t always turn out as rosy as we imagined. But it sure does make life interesting…
