Hello! And happy Friday, my friends. This week was a busy one, but apparently, I only chose to snap pictures of the food involved. Wednesday evening, Peyton and Christopher hosted all of us for a cookie decorating evening! My heart is so happy for my Peyton Rose. She is living the life she loves. She had baked Easter cookies, arranged colored icing and all kinds of toppings, and had an Easter candle burning. It was a wonderful evening with all my people, and I am so thankful to see my children carrying on the same traditions they enjoyed as children, now in their own homes.
Earlier in the week, I made a delicious salad for easy lunches. It was so good and very simple to put together. I will link the recipe HERE. I followed the directions, except I made my own vinaigrette with avocado oil and balsamic vinegar.
Last night, we attended a Lenten Penance Service. It was so nice to be in a church with others again. Afterward, we went to dinner at a favorite restaurant nearby. I tend to find a favorite dish at every place I go, and this was it last night! It is a shrimp bowl with coconut rice and an avocado mango pico. So good! I only ate half, so I have some for lunch today.
This weekend is blessedly quiet, so I will plan on visiting my mom and finalizing our plans for Holy Week and Easter. I am also beginning to think about next year's homeschool curriculum. I like to have it chosen and ordered by the end of the current school year. Add in the usual laundry, meal planning, and naps, and I am all set! I hope you have a lovely weekend too, be it slow and cozy or busy and productive. I will see you here on Monday!
Prayers for our world.
