Happy belated Mother’s Day to all who celebrated! Despite lots of rain, we had a nice relaxing weekend and I enjoyed all the handmade gifts my girls gave me on Sunday morning. They also helped their daddy make me breakfast, which was delicious (you may have seen some tidbits of our Mother’s Day celebration over on Instagram!).
Unfortunately we started the week on a not so great foot, with one of my girls suffering from a sinus infection. But with some soup on this week’s menu and some meds from the pediatrician, she will hopefully be back to herself in no time.
In other news, my first recipe video is now live! Check it out on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, or in the Southwestern Cauliflower Rice Casserole recipe post itself! It’s fun seeing recipes come to life, so I hope to share more videos soon.
