I had a glorious day at the bakery – 12 hours of fun work! But BOY are my legs exhausted. I really do feel as though I ran double digit miles. I came home and collapsed on the porch couch with my feet as high as possible.
They felt much, much better after a rest…until I had to stand up again! And wheeee, they get to do it again tomorrow : )
Sweet Karen wins Mother-In-Law of the Year for bringing us dinner tonight!
She made the taco salad recipe she made for Matt as a child. It’s very similar to the taco salads we make here except her version has a “fancy” meat sauce instead of just simple browned.
Recipe: Karen browns [grass-fed!] beef in a skillet and then drains it before adding 1/2 a cup of green peppers, 1 drained can of kidney beans, half a cup of any kind of BBQ sauce (the secret ingredient!), a half tsp of cumin, cayenne to taste, and 8 ounces of shredded cheddar cheese. All stirred together and headed until it’s kind of a nacho-cheese chili.
It’s served over iceberg lettuce and blue corn chips with fresh chopped tomatoes, homemade guacamole (avocado, salt, lime juice mash) and greek yogurt!
Water in my wine glass!
Having not slept well last night, I am SO tired. I think a hot shower and my down comforter sound heavenly right about now!
