I've been unmotivated to get on the computer lately, writing instead in journals - logging meals, books and events. I should put quotes around the word events as it's pretty tame around here. No concerts, no riding lately due to very crappy weather, no wine (!) and wow.....rereading this is sounds so negative! Ok, changing gears.
Lately we have been antsy about retirement and moving and no, I won't talk about it ad nauseam here, but today I want to touch base on it. The weather here is swampy, and as I mentioned, can't do too many outdoor things/ activities. So we have focused a little on cleaning out the house of unnecessary items. It's way early in the game to think about actually moving but it's never too early to de-clutter and plan. Right? We have taken many boxes to a local charity organization - things we aren't using, wearing playing, reading......it feels great!
Another thing we have been doing is eating at home more on weekends. Besides the obvious cash savings, it's healthier. We don't typically eat out during the week so weekend rides and grabbing a meal was always a treat but that's not been possible (*See weather conditions above)
So, this is from a previous weekend but I wanted to share a simple and fairly quick meal. A baked potato and a favorite Avocado, Tomato and Mozzarella salad from Mary Berry's cookbook. I wrote about it before HERE and may thank Katherine for introducing me to that cookbook.
Also on tap for weekend meals are Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche and Black Bean Burgers. Simplifying life for now.
Anyway....I finally got off my butt to do a blog update and participate with Deb at Kahakai Kitchen for her Souper Sunday event. Check out her link HERE and join in if you are inclined. You'll find some good meals and book reviews over there :-)
