Southern Living

Thank you, all, for your love, support and encouraging words on Friday. I have an appointment on the 24th to meet with a new doctor. I am very anxious. Your thoughts, prayers and words mean so much to me.

I hope you all had a great weekend. Our weekend got started off by Fred running in a 5K. He's really been training hard for this and Knox and I came out to surprise him at the finish line.

Checking his time

He did great!

Knox and Daddy

I don't know about where you live, but it was so freaking HOT this weekend. Don't get me wrong, I love warm weather, but it's unseasonably warm for mid-June. This is August weather. It's almost too hot to wear clothes. :)

I also have to take a minute to brag because we've cooked and eaten dinner at home 7 out of the 9 past days. If you know me, you know this is a record. And tonight is fajita night! We're just trying to be a little bit more health conscious and spend more time at home rather than in restaurants.

Here are some of the delicious recipes we've tried:
Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries
Quesadilla Chicken with Taco Seasoned Red Potatoes
Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon and Sugar Tortilla Chips
Rosemary Ranch Chicken Marinade
Homemade Lasagna
Spicy Tilapia with Pineapple-Pepper Relish

If you think we should try something, send me your recipe and we'll try it and blog about it.

Happy Monday, everyone!

I want to try some of these recipes! They look and sound fabulous! Thanks for the ideas :)

You're right - it is entirely too hot to be mid-June. I told Mr. Potts earlier this year that we'd have a too short Spring & a brutal Summer.

I'm wishing I were wrong about that!

I made the tilapia recipe from CL & loved it!!

All of those sound amazing! I might just have to try one of those recipes myself. I feel like we eat the same thing over and over again, it's starting to get old. Congrats to Fred for completing his first 5k.

Congrats to him!! I really want to do one but I flaked out on the last one. It is sooo way to hot already we're in 100 digits here soon.

Jenn said...

I have a recipe you HAVE to try! I wouldn't say it's healthy...but is anything in the South healthy?! I blogged about it here: I also included some of my other favorite recipes on that blog too, but the Deep Dish Spaghetti Pie is a staple in my menu!
