Burli has basically just been soaking up the sun..
While I was making Vegetable soup the other day Johnny ran over to The Fresh Market to pick up some crackers and came back with other goodies..I love his Fresh Market runs:)
Speaking of food..I got my newest cook book in this week!!
I would highly recommend this book! Tones of tips on canning, meat handling, basic food knowledge and so much more! I almost broke down and bought it a Barnes and Noble but the $35 price tag made my thrifty side jump out and I pulled out my phone and found it brand new on Amazon for only $18:)
Interested? Find it new and used here!
Here are a coupe of meals we have prepared from this book this week..
honey Dijon baked chicken on a bead of quinoa with
caramelized Brussels sprouts
cottage pie (yum) and asparagus-tomato saute
spinach lasagna and stir-fried Brussels sprouts
celebrating birthdays..Johnny turning 28..
Alex turning 27!
After the birthday celebration was over I was extremely dehydrated to say the least and had some major chapped lips so I searched for a homemade remedy for dry/chapped lips and found one that worked wonders! Just mix equal parts sugar and honey and apply to your lips, let dry and wipe off with warm towel! The mixture is quite griddy as you can kinda see in the picture but I promise it works!
I've been enjoying comfy winter socks now that it is chilly enough to wear them:)
finally got my casetagram for my phone!
Hmmm..well that about sums it up for life lately:)
