As I’ve shared with you before, there are many ups and downs to living this wildfire life. These ups and downs tend to land in a particular season of this lifestyle…the downer season is usually fire season, although there are perks to this time of the year as well. But, oh the off-season…Wildland Man makes it home in time for dinner (most nights), we can plan trips and time alone, projects and to-do lists get crossed off and completed, life returns to some sense of normalcy.
It was actually a couple of years ago, I guess, that I borrowed the book 100 Days of Real Food from our local library. I was trying to get on a health kick and I was just…so tired of dieting. The restriction and regulations, the “on the wagon, off the wagon” again approach. I was just so done with it all.
This real food concept seemed manageable. Simple and easy to balance when life gets real, and it always does, with busy days and improvised schedules.
I love a good crowd-pleasing recipe. Whether its for a church covered dish, holiday gathering, or just dinner guests at home…give me something easy to prepare ahead of time and I’m a happy hostess.
As we are in the throws of fall and the holiday entertaining is right around the corner, I felt the timing was perfect to pull out this tried and true recipe for y’all.
So, I have to admit, I’ve been in a bit of a writing funk as of lately. I just can’t seem to find the time or the motivation to get my writing days in. Or maybe I’m just a bit consumed with other thoughts at the moment. Either way, writing today was a bit of a struggle.
Wildland Man is gone for work this week and he just so happens to be driving through some beautiful country where he is seeing some amazing fall colors and relishing that crisp autumn air. Since moving to the south the thing I miss THE MOST is the seasonal changes we used to experience when we lived further north.
So…crafting. Hmmm, how do I explain my convoluted relationship with crafting?
I love it.
I hate it.
I wish I were better at it.
I have great ideas for it…just, zero follow-through.
Until today. Cuz today, I kicked crafting’s butt.
