While the hubs and i were engaged (almost 20 years ago!), I’m certain my mom was well pleased that I turned my carpeted bedroom into a small scale nursery. We used this exact shelf and grow lights to grow our first plants together. We had no #garden to put them in... yet... but we did it anyway.
Well, since the basement is picked up and the unfinished parts are becoming well organized he couldn’t wait one second to get this up and going. It’s been a few years since it was touched. Never mind his arm is in a sling so the kids and I had to do the soil spreading and planting.
For the first time in days my migraine abated, I woke up at 7:56 AM, prepped the crockpot with this scrumptious delight, went to the store, came back to make lunch, eat, then passed out for three hours. 🙄 I don't know how to manage my energy. Fiancé thinks it's hilarious. This after yesterday of my going crazy and demanding everything get cleaned, moved, him go through bags of stuff his mother got him that he left on the love seat, vacuuming, dusting, rearranging and being cranky because I can't abide being in bed for several days due to migraines. So I overdid it and used up what energy I had. He's so restless, I caught him up at 4 AM!!! 🙄🙄🙄 These random shifts are definitely grueling. #nightshift#rotationalshiftssuck#rotationalshift#food#foodstagram#foodporn#foodie#chicken#chickenherb#herbchicken#carrots#onions#bellpeppers#crockpot#chickenstock
Look at my gorgeous baby capsicums growing in my veggie patch! I can't wait until they're big enough to harvest and I'm drooling thinking of how yummy and crunchy and juicy they're going to be. 😍
I've got a new video up on the channel today showing you through my veggie garden and giving you a late summer update on how everything is growing. I also have more information on the mouse 🐭 problem I had in my compost a few months ago. Go take a look and tell me what you think. 👌🌱
On VACATION????? No worries! It is totally possible to stay ON PLAN while away from home. ~~
We are camping this weekend in St George and we are here for a soccer tournament. So we didn’t bring food to cook or any cooking gear because we will be at games all day. ~~
It would be SO EASY to go crazy on snacky processed foods and fried fast food, but I won’t! And I don’t want to! I feel so much better when I eat healthy. ~~
We found a cute little cafe that made me a veggie omelette served with fresh fruit!! The omelette was GIANT, so I hate 1/2 and all of it counted as 1 protein, 1 veggie, 1 healthy fat with cheese, 1 carb with the toast, and 1 fruit!! It was DELICIOUS, filling, satisfying, and totally ON PLAN. And eat on my wallet too ;)
