Last week was quite a whirlwind of activity. There seemed to be so much happening at once and my list of things to do was endless. Logan started off the week with a cold, which he promptly passed along to me. Between the normal work stuff and trying to juggle chores at home, I crammed in menu planning for our annual family barbecue, all while recuperating from my cold. I thought for sure I would collapse in a fit of exhaustion, but by Thursday, I was feeling great. I spent the remainder of the week cooking and organizing things for our big event. When Saturday finally arrived, I was overjoyed to wake up to clear, blue skies. We spent a gorgeous day at Candlewood Lake, surrounded by family and friends, scarfing down everything from jalapeno poppers to hamburgers to pulled pork. Needless to say, I was way too exhausted to cook the following day!
This week will be a pretty mellow one. The forecast calls for lots of sun and humidity, so Logan and I will be hitting the beach every chance we get! This week’s meals are fuss-free and easy to put together. After all, I want to spend my week building sand castles, not stuck in the kitchen!
