Hello, my foodie friends! It's been an exciting Sunday here, with news reaching us that the offer we put in on a house yesterday was accepted. Closing is tentatively scheduled for October 16th, and it would be amazing to be able to move that quickly. We'll take what God gives, though, and delay if necessary.
We have a lot of happy memories in this apartment, but we finally feel truly ready for moving on to this next phase in our life. And it will be so nice to have a yard for Lukas, as well as space to have a real garden and host company.
The first Sunday of the month is always a long one with Sunday school, Morning Worship, Potluck, and Afternoon Worship. Unfortunately we forgot to take compliant food along this morning, and the only compliant item on the line was slices of tomatoes. :( Abi had a Larabar and some almonds in her purse, but I decided that since today was originally going to be the first day of really getting back into things, I could eat from the potluck table for one meal and not be too much the worse for wear.
So, on to the food for today.
Turkey Blueberry Breakfast Muffins (made with pork sausage from my in-laws because we hadn't been able to pick up any ground turkey yesterday; also, quite delicious, much better than I expected from the recipe)
Diced sweet potato, green bell pepper, and onion fried in a little olive oil in the cast-iron skillet
Some rice with pizza sauce and black beans topped with a little shredded Colby-Jack cheese
What I'm guessing was a chicken Parmesan pasta dish
Several slices of fresh tomato
A tomato, cucumber, parsley, and broccoli salad with probably some Italian dressing
1 cup of black coffee
Chili Lime Chicken Breast (original recipe called for Red Boat fish sauce, which we didn't have, and to be made with chicken wings, which we didn't have)
Cabbage salad with homemade mayo and a few cashew pieces
A handful of black grapes
Welcome to a new week! Stay tuned for future updates.
