This week I’m trying to stick more closely to a low carb, high protein, high fat diet at least through Sunday. I’ve been slacking in the french fry and dessert and sandwich department so I am starting to feel fluffy. No one should ever like to feel fluffy.
My hubs has his comfort food this week: Chicken herb casserole (complete with two cans of cream of something soup – best convenience food ever invented)
I’m going to also be making some nutty and citrusy muffins for the misters breakfasts this week.
I love beets and had a friend deliver some to me a few weeks ago. I’m going to be making this detox bake
Plenty of salads for me this week.
And we are going to be having a homemade taco salad with homemade guac tomorrow night for an in house date night. I’ve got a blog post to do for a skincare line and why not avocados? So, the mister and I are going to be working on lots of food photos tomorrow night!
And I’m working on a downloadable menu that can be used weekly or reused. I’ll let you know when its avail!
It is just starting to drizzle here in the ATL metro area. I love it when it rains here. We’ve had several days this week of thunder and lightning and pouring down rain. I’ve loved it.
Our older son loves to stand at his window and look out at the rain and explain “whoa” or “wow” or “oh” every 10 seconds. He must be fascinated at the creation of God. I love how God is so in charge of the weather! Every rain drop falls at his bidding. Amazing.
And, in God’s amazingness – He gives us chocolate and marshmallows and heavy whipping cream.
Don’t you love how life teaches you lessons? We all have days where we learn valuable lessons that will profit us to use them in the future.
Like don’t go out without an umbrella if skies are threatening rain.
Don’t date guys who don’t love Jesus first and foremost.
Always wear the same shoes – vital.
Love above all else.
When you get hurt (and you will), don’t hurt in return because it doesn’t do anyone any good.
Leave your heart open for new relationships and friendships.
And this S’mores Pie.
I found out on Instagram yesterday that today is National S’mores Day (who is in charge of making these things up, anyway?). So, all I had to do was get a few things from the store and this pie is all set for when we get home from church tonight. It is dark, fudge, not too sweet, and topped with fluffy, sugary goodness. Slightly burnt edges – just like the perfect campfire marshmallow before you smush it between some chocolate and graham crackers.
The lesson I learned in making this pie? Buy a culinary torch. It will just do you wonders and save bunches of time (because my life as a full-time mommy comes first to my adventures in The Charming South Kitchen, so I’ve gotta use those nap times wisely). At least I was able to sip on my McDonald’s diet coke while I was waiting for my lighter to slightly burn the edges of the marshmallows. (I adapted this recipe from Brown Eyed Baker)
