When It Rains… 239/365

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.

Dinner 238/365

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?

I’m Excited About This 233/365

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!!!
