For the Indiana readers of this blog, how weird is this weather right now??? I feel like I’m living in some alternate universe right now where nothing is as it’s supposed to be. Like windows open and cooking on the grill in January….seriously, what the crap is up with that?
I have been crocheting my fingers off since early December making these messy bun hats that everyone is going crazy over. Not that I’m complaining. For a family that never takes trips, like ever, we have 2 week long beach vacations planned this year and a trip to Michigan, so the extra money is helping tremendously with that. I’ve got more projects lined up so I’m going to be happy to finish up these hats, if the orders ever stop coming in.
Aside from that, Hannah can’t stop breaking her feet. The right in October and now the left one! Both times while playing basketball. She loves to play, and of course, we love watching her, but I’ll be kind of glad when her IGHL league ends in mid-February so I can stop wincing every time her feet hit the court! Softball is a little less demanding on her ginormous ski’s and on her new team, she’ll rarely catch, so it will be less strain on her achillies, which has been another problem area for her. We’re looking forward to her getting healthy and back into action on the field.
In other news, Katie went to a camp at Franklin college and had some very nice compliments from the coach, as well as him letting us know that she was put on their recruiting list. (per NCAA rules, he can’t contact her until her Junior year, but that was pretty cool and encouraging for her to see that her hard work over the years is paying off.
So that’s the happs with us right now. I sometimes get so caught up in posting all my fitness stuff here that I forget to document things for the fam. But you know I’m not gonna leave you hanging with nothing in that category, so I’m going to share this yummy recipe that we had the other day. Oh, and Haaaiii, Christina, don’t worry girl, I got you! I will be posting those dressing recipes for you very soon! 😉
Here’s a very simply recipe for Beef Quesadillas with Homemade Guacamole & Pico.
Just brown 1 lb beef with an onion and 2 tsp minced garlic. Drain and add 1-2 T. homemade taco seasoning.
Fill one half of tortilla with beef mixture. Sprinkle a little bit of shredded cheese on top if you wish. Fold over and cook on griddle until crispy, then flip and repeat on other side.
Now for the Pico. I just chopped up and drained 2 ripe tomatoes, added salt, pepper, juice of one lime, some fresh cilantro, garlic, 2 jalapenos (diced fine), and about half of an onion, (diced fine).
For the guac, I peeled and chopped 2 avocado, added the juice of one lime, salt and pepper and mashed it all together with a fork.
That’s it! Super easy and perfect for a busy week night!
