Something I’m loving eating this week:
Ivan’s pico de gallo!
He made nachos on Sunday night, and he always makes a big bowl of pico de gallo to top the nachos with. We had leftovers, so I have repurposed the pico de gallo multiple times now.
1st: As a salad topper! Chicken, apple, black pepper, pico, parmesan cheese! DELICIOUSNESS.
2nd: In an egg scramble! Egg, pico, some deli turkey (randomly threw that in for some added protein). Scooped it into a tortilla and topped with a little cheese.
Something I’m enjoying looking at:
This tree in my front yard.
The trees in our yard are crazy. Most other trees in the neighborhood have dropped most leaves by now. But not ours!! Our two main, big trees still have tons of leaves and finally started shedding some. We were joking yesterday on the way to school that “we won!!!!” Our trees’ leaves stayed on the longest. Hahaha!
Something else I’m enjoying looking at:
Garland! And lights.
There’s nothing better to me than glowing twinkle lights. And candles. And soft warm lamps. Etc. Give me all the hygge things. I should have been born in Denmark.
Some quotes I’ve been loving lately:
“When you see a good move, look for a better one.” – Emanuel Lasker, Chess Master
“Perpetual optimism is a force multiplier.”- General Colin Powell.
**I LOVE THIS QUOTE! I had to think about what it really meant for a minute. In the armed forces, they are always looking for ways to “maximize” their force/power/ strength- to be better than the opposition somehow. He believed that optimism (confidence, trust, positivity) is inspirational and ultimately would strengthen/ “multiply the force”. By believing in his men, they would believe in themselves, and produce better, and stronger results. This lesson can be applied to many situations! Love it.
I am grateful for school being in person. I’ve mentioned this one before, but after the last couple years, this bears frequent repeating. So happy the kids are back in school! GRATEFUL.
