Happy Tuesday! Have you recovered from that crazy Superbowl?! Neither Dylan’s nor my team were in the Superbowl this year so we didn’t really have any stake in the game, but as a football fan in general that turned out to be one incredible game.
You guys. I’m bringing you a super duper easy meal. Like ‘oh my gosh I ate too much food at Thanksgiving and DO NOT feel like cooking‘ meal. And bonus – it can be made in 30 minutes of less!
I’m curious – did you guys go shopping on Black Friday? I’m personally not a Black Friday shopper. Well, I guess maybe I’ve evolved with the times and I definitely perused the online deals with my sweatpants on and big cup of coffee on Friday morning, but no way was I going to stand in lines at the store. I know some folks love it, and that’s great, but it’s definitely not for me.
Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend and are feeling good about this week! Can you believe that Thanksgiving is this Thursday?! I feel like it should be next week, but nope; it’s upon us already!
We spent the weekend being for the most part, low key, which I was a-okay with. Between goodbye parties, dinners and get togethers I am socially and emotionally exhausted. I’ve consumed lots of wine, laughter and tears as I have geared up to say goodbye to my best friend who left for Portland on Friday, and a close girlfriend who is starting the next chapter of her life in Denver this week. Last week wasn’t nearly as “normal” as I had hoped, and while the holiday’s call for anything but normal this week, I feel myself sliding into a good routine. Back to normal, as they say!
Happy Friday, friends! I’m back from a wonderful vacation in Asheville, NC and excited to be back into the swing of things (well almost, the laundry isn’t doing itself I suppose) and I’m hitting the ground running with my new focus on bowl meals! If you didn’t see my post last week, I have focused the direction of Creative Life Explored exclusively on bowl meals. That means all types of meals and all kinds of new recipes – because everything tastes better in a bowl!
I have lots of fun, healthy, and themed stuff in store for you going forward; you don’t have to be restricted to what you make JUST because it’s a bowl meal!
Happy post Thanksgiving! I hope your holiday and your Black Friday went well (if you’re into that sort of thing, anyway). I prefer to keep my shopping online if I can, particularly at this time of year. The last two weeks have been crazy – my full-time job has been busy, to say the least, and I’ve hit a pretty good groove with my workouts. As a result I’ve been going to bed around 8:30-9pm each night – so old! But I’m getting back in my routine and made these amazing steak tex-mex bowls the other night that I had to share!
