I hate to talk about the weather, but…
Is it cold at your house already? It’s been unseasonably cold the past few days here in Nebraska. Temps are supposed to creep up again, thankfully, but here it is mid-September and I’m already wearing wool socks. It’s a little early for that, but I’m kind of a cold weather wimp. ;)
We’re pulling in quite a bit from our garden since it’s been getting so cold at night. We probably won’t be getting many more fresh tomatoes (sniff). I chopped one up to go with a new recipe I found in the Healthy Living Bundle – Taco Dip. It was super, super easy and really delicious – two favorite qualities in a recipe at my house. Fresh pineapple (not from our garden, ha!) was a great side dish. And of course, I served a mountain of quesadillas too. We’re serious about our food.
I’ve got a new Make-Ahead Lunch Box idea to share with you later this week. Below is a sneak preview. Simple and delicious. Full details coming in a few days!
One of the cold days last week, you would have found me wearing my wool socks…and drinking an iced coffee. Silly and counterproductive, I know. But the iced coffee was delicious, making the shivering episode completely worth it. I will say though, I stuck with hot coffee the rest of the week. I’m not completely crazy (just mostly).
See that cool glass straw in my iced coffee? I had no idea how nice it would be to have one of those. When I first saw Strawsome was offering a $15 gift certificate for free with your bundle purchase, I was like, “Really? Why would I want a glass straw that would most certainly be used as a weapon of some sort in my family of males, and would break within five minutes of being in my kitchen?” I stand corrected. This thing is so sturdy, I’m not worried a bit about it breaking. I LOVE that my iced coffee (or smoothies) no longer taste like plastic straws. I have yet to share this little prize with my boys. I actually am not so worried anymore about them breaking it, but I’ve kind of been keeping it to myself because I got a cutesy one…just for me. What can I say?
You like how I took so much time and effort to carefully white out my mailing address? I am so professional. I just thought it would be fun to show you what my countertop looked like a few days after I ordered my bundle freebies. What you see above all came in one day. SO MUCH FUN. I opened them slowly, then oohed and aahed over them loudly…while drinking hot tea. So many treats. :)
