It's been so hot, I had to pull out some pictures of cooler times. A few months ago, we had a campfire & had to wear hoodies! No fires lately...we tried one on July 4 & got so hot we let it die before we even had s'mores.
My phone's background is now a picture of skiing in Vermont. Just looking at that snow & remembering the fun we had cheers me up every time I see it!
Oh spring...I love seeing the crocuses come up. This was when I was wishing for warm weather...I'm never satisfied with the season we're in. Except maybe fall. Ever since I graduated college, I've embraced my love for fall. I always loved it, with the crisp weather, pretty leaves changing, & my birthday, but now that the back-to-school bit isn't involved, it's truly my favorite time of year.
We have some plans with family & friends this weekend, but nothing major. There's plenty to do around the house & maybe I'll venture out to work in the garden. I'm hoping for lots of rain!
Here's what we've been eating in the last week:
- Food Doodles' Lightened Up Zucchini Alfredo (made with zucchini noodles) - We really liked the flavors in this, but the sauce was pretty runny. It might be because we didn't use any regular pasta, just zucchini noodles, so I would like to try it again with the combo. Next time, though, I'd start with less almond milk & then add more if needed.
- Cucumber slices & carrot sticks with dip
