Virtual hugs to all those that shared, commented, prayed or even just thought about Meg.
If you haven’t seen on social media, the Saturday tribute run to her is spreading like wildfire. Tuesday morning there were 1,000 people dedicating their runs to her this weekend. As of yesterday afternoon, there were 46,000+. Some people ask why bad things happen, maybe for that very reason.
Question… what’s the average shelf-life of things your kids do going from cute to annoying?
This was all cute and everything 3 weeks ago, but now Gentry WON’T STOP scaling the table.
And, yes, I’m in denial that Christmas season is over. Isn’t everyone?
This week is dubbed the Yellow Jersey Week- which means we want you to try to add a yellow food to as many meals as you can. And by yellow we don’t mean potato chips people.
Yellow goodies include:
I typed in yellow royalty-free image and this is what came up. Thought I’d share.
yellow apples, apricots, corn, yellow beets, yellow and acorn squash, yellow peppers, pineapples, yellow tomatoes, lemons, bananas… the list goes on.
Here is my personal favorite YELLOW recipe involving acorn squash.
1 acorn squash per person
2 tbsp of brown sugar per squash
2 tbsp of coconut oil per squash
Preheat the oven to 400F
Cut acorn squash in half from stem to end (they’re MUCH easier than their friend butternut) and scoop out inside yuck (seeds, etc.)
Coat each inside with melted coconut oil and place upside down on a non stick dish.
Coat each outside with melted coconut oil as well.
Bake in oven for 20 minutes
Remove squash, flip over and add sprinkles of brown sugar and coconut oil if needed.
Bake in oven for another 10-20.
Justin and I use an ice cream scoop to get all the inside goodness out. And then we use the ice cream scoop for something non-yellow immediately following.
Just tell your kids it’s candy Acorn?!
There’s sugar in there 😉
