Today is one of those days where I have just sat … starring at the blank page with a blinking line urging me to type a couple words.
There are so many thoughts going on in my head right now. Some of them having to do with politics. Most of them not. Some of them that I so desperating want to tell you, but not sure if I’m ready yet.
So instead. I sit here. Staring at the blinking line.
Do you ever have those moments?
Where you feel like you have so much to say, but don’t?
It’s quite a conundrum to have.
I guess I’ll just tell you want I’m enjoying right now. I’m enjoying the weather here in Texas … boring I know … But I’m in Texas and cool weather is something to be thankful for. I get to wear ankle booties and not sweat while I’m standing outside. I get to wear my sweatshirts and remenise of my Midwest living days. Which is definitely a cause for celebration. If we could add a few colorful leaves to the mix I’d be one happy camper.
I’m enjoying the small group we are in at church. I really feel like we’ve started to get the community we have been longing for for 3 years. Which is a huge breakthrough for us!
I am enjoying heading into the holiday season. I don’t feel like I’m ready for it. But I’m excited to start binge watching Hallmark Christmas movies and make Christmas cookies with friends and family.
I have loved the overwhelming feeling of JOY God has given me the past couple weeks. I cannot express to you the feeling of peace and joy I’ve had, except that it feels like a complete 180 to where I was at about 2 months ago! And that I am sooo thankful for!
I’m also enjoying cooking comfort food recipes for YOU! It been a little bit of challenge, because I think my grilling game is where my creativity shines. But, I except the challenge!! Bring it on holiday season!
Last week I had a few goodies and this week I’ll be focusing on holiday side dishes, so you are stocked up for Thanksgiving and Christmas!
Today, if you haven’t been able to tell already, we talking about Roasted Potatoes!
In my mind the perfect Roasted Potato has a slightly salty crispy skin with a soft warm inside. Honestly, if you do that part right, you could probably stop there. But you know me. I’m not gonna stop there. I need to add at least one more layer of flavor on.
I’m a huge Tex-mex lover and completely obsessed with Chimichurri Sauce. As a way to combine that love, fall flavors, and put it on your dinner table I created a Sage Salsa Verde!
Um… ya’ll. Absolutely delicious! The potatoes and this Salsa Verde were meant for each other. AND it totally changes up the typical mashed potatoes to a fun gorgeous side dish you’ll be proud to adorn on your dinner table.
