The Fountains of Carrots Podcast
(you guys. I listen to their interviews and I keep wanting to jump right into the conversation and it really makes me wish I had a book or something to promote so that I could justify asking to be a guest on their show. It is so stinkin' enjoyable to listen to. And I have never listened to any other podcasts ever.)
While you're driving say "right now we're traveling north. Tell me what direction we're driving in when I turn!" Or level up to "do you know which direction we're traveling? How can you tell?" Or before you go somewhere new, let them look at the map with you. "Here is our house, and here is where we're going. So, that's south west and we should probably take this road, don't you think?"
On The Table
Friday- veggie and cheese omelets
Saturday- pasta with red sauce
Sunday-roast turkey (this is a true story. T got one right before Christmas vacation from his employer and I was all "no." But then I was all "okay" and so he cooked it up real good like)
Monday- crustless turkey pot pie bowls created by starting with this recipe and pouring leftover gravy over all of it.
Tuesday-a version of this Anniversary Chicken recipe with sauteed asparagus on the side
Wednesday-this pasta with creamy garlic sauce +peas+ turkey meat with cornbread muffins (this was a scrape-the-bottom-of-the-fridge-and-pantry day)
Thursday-slow cooker bbq pulled pork, homemade sweet potato fries, herb rolls
En La Casa
The laundry room saga continues. And there really isn't even a saga. It's like...you know what it's like. I'm not putting the rest of life on hold whilst I work on this so it's taking forever. That's pretty much it. But that's really good because my natural tendency is to completely neglect all my other responsibilities so we can get to that After pic because RESULTS ORIENTED ALL THE THINGS.
But oh, did you see how cute the colors are going to be in there???
