Food Friday is of course not complete without a photo of my little foodie. I thought this was a fitting way to start our post today. This is how we cool off during these dog daze of summer…Sonic Happy Hour. Whoo–hoo. Most everyday you can find my car or Daddy’s truck at any local Sonic. We go so much that we know which Sonic has the best ice and drive out of our way to get a drink there if time allows. I love the simple things in life… and a Diet Coke with lime.
Too hot to cook!
It is oppressive. I love using that word and am using it any chance I can when referring to the heat of 2010. My word…can a sister catch a breeze?! Anyway, the kitchen was closed at our house this week. No cakes, no casseroles, no wonderful stove top dishes. Frozen meals and quick grabs were my friend. Those foods wear on a girls taste buds after a few days though. I am ready for a little something, something from the oven.
Lunch with the girls
I have been eating lunch out with girlfriends quite a bit this summer. I love lunch menus, good girl fun without the guilt of leaving the son or hubs at home to fend for themselves like we would at dinner time, and the fellowship…sweet fellowship! I fear I make my working gals late getting back to work because I am in no hurry to rush off these days. I am learning more about my sweet friends and deepening my relationships. It makes my heart happy and puts a smile on my face. If you are my personal friend, live in my town and not had lunch with me this summer…we must hook up!
Have you heard of this? if not, you must watch this trailer. It is eye-opening. I am not going to share my thoughts too much on this because the food/chemical industry puts food on my table, but it makes me think about all the processed foods I eat (like the frozen meals I have eaten all week). I liked one of the author’s of this companion book saying that if your great-grandmother would not recognize it, don’t buy it! Anyway, it is worth a quick glimpse. Pretty interesting, I thought.
Celebrating and decorating with purpose is my favorite thing to do. When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me!
