Soup. Soup. Soup.
In my attempt to eat more vegetables and less junk dinners, I text my sister-in-law, the cooking guru, and asked for some recipes. She sent me about 10 recipes and after going through them landed on these two for the week. The one is a Pumpkin Chili with Elk and the other is a Butternut Squash with Apple. Boosie helped my chopped and dice.Thanks Boo. I cried a couple times in the process. No, not over sadness or even excitement but over some very ripe onions.
One of my challenges with working full time is finding time to.... well... do ANYTHING! Cooking has taken a back burner and sometimes just burned now that Momma is out of the house all day. T has been a great help but still, this is MY area, not his. I need in a BIG way to get.it.together. This is my attempt at having two meals done and ready to go. Okay. so it isn't a freezer full of meals, I know. But still, a gal's gotta start somewhere. So just clap already for me. That's good. Keep clapping. LOUDER!
Maybe I can get another meal done this week!

Today is a milestone day. My sweet baby girl is going to her first dance and a formal none the less. Oh, it is with great excitement the girls got ready. Make-up, nails, perfume, hairspray. Okay, let's talk hairspray for a minute. Our oldest daughter, Becca, let Lina in on a little known secret. Apparently if you hairspray your make-up it stays fresh all night. Forget clogging the pours. It's that "look" that must be kept. Uh huh. So back to my list... hairspray, jewelry, pink heels, and a cute party purse. And they're off! The dance is held at a lovely country club in town and believe it or not, does NOT cost a fortune to attend. How's that for a fun night out on the town!
Hollywood, you look Marvelous!
