My crazy, here, there, everywhere, never home for more than 3 days at a time first part of summer has come to an end!
It’s been a wild couple of months and my house and waistline can definitely tell.
My goals for this week are to cook 3 healthy meals, catch up on laundry and clean out the pantry and the refrigerator.
I can not guarantee that the pantry/fridge will get done but the washing machine is running and the groceries have been bought.
Tonight I used those groceries to make this light dinner that will hopefully help with the waistline.
It was fabulous!
