Getting a touch better?? Maybe, but I am having focus problems. With my photos. My brain has been left perfectly intact by motherhood. I swear. Did you just see that goat? Oh, no? Maybe not completely intact. Do you know I had to look up how to spell Radicchio after trying to spell it 5 times? Honestly….some words just don’t make life easy.
So, this post comes with a bit of a mushy rant because the world seems to be getting eating by alligators and guns and violence and all around hatred for each other. It really can be too much for one woman to handle. I already have my energy expended by trying not to throw Paw Patrol figures back at the terrorist, let alone read about all the horrific things in the world and keep it together. That being said, I never choose ignorance. Ever. Hence why my grocery bill is so high and Z barks at me. Once I know better, I do better.
I just spent the last weekend with my very best friends. Those I hold so close to my heart and will grow old with. No seriously. The men are going to die first, they do already and ours are 7-15 years older. We ate, drank, talked and just connected. The week before that, my dad was visiting and watching him play with my boys was truly a pure joy. Nothing could taint that. So in this world of violence, stupidity and ignorance; connect. Connect and spend time with those you love and make sure you value each and every moment. My way of connecting has always been through food. I cook and bake for those I love most. So, if I have ever invited you over to my home, opened my kitchen and fed you, it is because I love you and want to share in this life together.
I made this dish for one of my girls and it is fantastic, and super easy. No strict paleo, but as the saying goes on this blog, never enough cheese!! Enjoy and hold those you love a little closer.
