In the Summer the grocery stores and markets are bursting with colorful fruits and veggies. Although it’s so inspiring, I tend to get lazy at times and really have to push myself to create new salads etc. Do you ever feel like that?
Is there something that you keep putting off, giving yourself excuses that it’s ‘not a good time’, your kids are too young, you’re not ‘settled’, you’re not where you want to be, your body isn’t where you want it to be…I can go on and on with the excuses. And we are ALL guilty of putting things on the back burner because of our excuses.
Now that we’re in Spring/Summer mode, do you find yourself putting off things that you said that you were going to do just as soon as the weather started getting nicer?? I have those ‘mental checklists’ of things that I want to do… Should I tell you how embarrassed I am that I still have long sleeved sweater dresses in my bedroom cupboard!!!
It’s so nice to see all the begonias and flowering plants brighten up the grocery stores, the markets – even Costco has their full garden assortment ready for the taking. While those hanging baskets are so tempting to buy, I know the weather isn’t consistent yet and those little flowering buds may not survive our unpredictable weather. I am so ready to plant my herbs outdoors too, but I know I have to wait.
There was a time in my life when breakfast meant a quick cup of coffee and a ‘bar’ to go or just coffee. It’s crazy how priorities change and seriously, I think I need my breakfast more than any other meal of the day!
The tag team of my brother and sister in law grilled butternut squash, red and orange peppers, zucchini and eggplant for my 2nd Seder, and there were the leftovers that were tucked away in the back of my fridge that were almost forgotten!
We shared two beautiful Seders with wonderful family and friends and I can’t believe how much work went into those two nights and it’s over, just like that! My house is starting to get back to normal and now I’m trying to plan what to eat for the next few days. My family is okay with leftovers for one day, but to be honest, I feel so stuffed and really need to get back to eating ‘healthy’! If you are observing Passover, you must be faced with the same challenges that I am!
