It’s rainy and windy here today. Of course it is nothing compared to what the people of Texas are dealing with, but it’s nasty outside which means it’s not grilling weather.
It was more of a comfort, warm me up, kind of night. I went to the handy dandy freezer and pulled out some soups that I had made and defrosted them. Mexican Chicken Soup for my husband and Cauliflower Soup for me, made with a purple cauliflower 😲. Paired the soups with some grilled cheese sandwiches and dinner was served.
I can’t tell you how much I love having meals in the freezer ready to go. I was taking inventory today and was like uh-oh I’m going to have to start making some more big batches of food to replenish the stock in the freezer. I still have a few meals on hand but now that fall is approaching I’ll be cooking more meals instead of grilling everything and I’ll be adding to the freezer once again.
Of course with this means I’m pouring through my cookbooks again and of course looking for new cookbooks to try. I’m all about experimenting in the kitchen and with fun meals. I’ve also been drooling over an InstaPot I think the purchase is going to be made soon. It’s just a matter of which one I want.
Today I also checked out the new Aldi’s that just opened last week down the street. I love Aldi’s and I fell even more in love today when I saw that they had an entire gluten free section with some great products I’m excited to try. But, the big love was when I found LaCroix in 15 Can boxes for $3.99 in 2 of my favorite flavors. I only bought one box of each but I could of easily filled an entire cart with this find
Happy Tuesday hope your week is treating you well.
Tonight for dinner we picked up some fancy sausages.
We paired them with some peppers and onions. Also a nice salad with fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, mozzarella, and balsamic vinaigrette.
I had a white wine and garlic turkey sausage.
My husband had a Buffalo Chicken sausage with blue cheese. It was so good and was packing some heat.
These will be something we will be picking up again in the future.
What’d you have for dinner?
Today was a day of cleaning up from yesterday’s party, having brunch with my husband, and stopping by to support the RoctheRide Riders who are raising money for pediatric cancer and will be riding 270 miles in September to bring awareness to pediatric cancer.
A little peak at our brunch yumminess.
Happy Birthday to me!!!
Having a great day. Started off with a gym session.
Had a BBQ with awesome friends and now we are continuing the party with watching the fight.
It’s the start of my birthday weekend. Can’t wait for the fun that will happen.
Coconut froyo with hot fudge. Yes, please.
I’m a side sleeper and when you sleep on your side you’re supposed to have a pillow between your legs and arms. So yeah that gets a bit much and hard to manage and keep in place all night long.
I’ve been back at the chiropractor trying to get my neck and upper back into shape again as I’m out of alignment. I’ve been told stop sleeping on your side, uhmmm yeah that’s not going to happen so then it’s pillows for days.
Until, I found the pillow to end all pillows. Of course when I ordered the pillow and pillow cases my pillow arrived right away but the pillow cases were not on the way for some time. So for weeks I’ve been staring at a pillow getting excited to give it a try but no pillow cases. Today they finally arrived and the pillow is on my bed and I’m not so patiently waiting for bedtime so I can try this pillow out.
I’ll be testing it out and let you know if it’s love and if it helps with this side sleep meal-alignment issue I have going on.
Here it is my new pillow
Good thing we have a custom made king bed so there is room for my husband and pillow, because my husband might lose out if I had to choose.
Happy Hump Day!!!
It’s Tuesday which means TACO TUESDAY!!!!
Fresh Guacamole, yes please
In excited about this weather forecast for Saturday. I’m hoping it stays this way.
Got to spend the last 2 days building hope for 2 families battling pediatric cancer.
