Tuesday's Tidings

Hers

1. We got this AT&T Digital Life security system installed over the weekend and like many things that I feel are 10 times more complicated than they really, this system is actually pretty easy to understand. It helps that everything is super customizable and easy to use through my phone or the app. Of course, until I’ve played with it 50 times, I probably won’t be use to it anytime soon. I’m scared I’m going to press a button that does something bad! #scaredycat #learningnewthingsfreaksmeout

2. Okay, this you guys is super cute. Have you seen the video of the Beluga whale teasing these little kids at an aquarium? It is downright adorable. …

Weekly Menu July 27-Aug 2

Weekly Menu

Here we are in the last week of July. Um, where did July go again? One minute I’m celebrating the 4th of July and the next I’m waving goodbye to July and saying,”hello” to August.

So this week’s menu is running on the easy side for me this week. Josh is traveling to Chicago for work this week. Which means, It’s just me and it is a bummer. But the kids and I will have fun. Or at least the girls will. They’ve been playing with friends for the past 4 days straight! But my best friend is gone! What will I do?

Bake, I guess. I’ve got several zucchinis just begging for me to make some of my Chocolate Zucchini Bread. #nomnom…

Grilled Margarita Chicken

Back when I first started blogging in 2010, I found a recipe for margarita chicken that used a store bought margarita mix. The final product was so-so . It was really sweet and the margarita mix we had on hand was red…which made the chicken kind of pink, which certainly didn’t look appetizing! I remember…

Cilantro Lime Quinoa

Quinoa. Apparently it is (or was) trendy, healthy, and, God forbid, perhaps even a bit faddy (fads are the worst, generally speaking…). I think Chels and I started eating quinoa about the same time everybody (and I do mean everybody) else did, sometime in 2011 or 2012. I honestly can’t recall what encouraged us to…

Weekly Menu July 20-July 26

Good afternoon everyone! And how is your Monday going so far? I’m getting a late start on this post today. I like to have my menu posts ready to go Sunday evening, but my evening ran away from me and so did this morning. I’ve been organizing the garage, getting laundry going, got dinner in…

Southwest Chicken Salad

Southwest Chicken Salad

You might remember me saying that we went out of town for the Fourth of July. We left Wednesday evening and drove six hours to Maple Falls, WA, which is just on the southern border of Canada. It was an amazing time. No cell service or internet, no tv, and no phone (except to take a few…

Hers 1. Okay, so I love shark week. Sadly, I kind of missed it last week, but I did see this article from National Geographic that is featuring 10 amazing photos of Great White Sharks. The pictures are incredible, but the article is fascinating too. 2. We’re slowly working on trying to make our new…

Weekly Menu July 13- July 19

Weekly Menu

Hey guys! We’ve been home from vacation for a full week and let me tell you, last week was full! We didn’t even do any grocery shopping till this past weekend. Isn’t that crazy? Basically, just eating leftovers from camping. We’ve spent several evenings, eating dinner and listening to stories with Josh’s family. You guys probably remember that every year around this time, Josh’s grandparents, Grammy & Grampy (Grampy just celebrated his 91st birthday and he is still as active and amazing as the day I met him nearly 12 years ago) come to town before they head off to Africa again (they’re missionaries), so the time with them is always real sweet but too short.

I apologize for not sharing a menu last week. I cooked at home like for all of two nights last week, so there wasn’t much to share. But this week, I’m planning that we’ll be home probably every night. …
