Happy Thanksgiving!!! I know, I know.. it’s been really quiet around here. I had great intentions of sharing a few Thanksgiving recipes in the last week but.. well.. life. Between obligations, having visitors in town for about a week, and then immediately becoming a sick household I felt like I was barely holding on! We are still sick but thankfully the kids and I are over the worst of it. I’m coming up for air and happy to report I am cooking a Thanksgiving meal today. On Monday I wasn’t sure it would happen. Stay tuned as I will share my recipes over the next week.
In the meantime here’s one of my weekly winter meals. You all know by now how much I love using my crockpot for soups! I don’t follow a recipe but instead buy whatever veggies look good at the store and choose a protein. I add these to the crockpot with some seasonings, broth, and ta-da you have a foolproof method for creating a delicious meal! I like to make a large batch to enjoy two nights in a row for dinner. A total win for two dinners with minimal cooking!!
As you enjoy your Thanksgiving celebrations remember to take a moment to find gratitude for all you have. This week I’ve been reflecting on how beautiful my life is. * I live in gorgeous sunny Colorado just outside of Boulder. Everyday as I drive into work or drop Cia off at school I have an incredible view of the Flatirons in front of me. This view never fails to mesmerize me! * Since day one I have been graciously welcomed into my job and have felt endless support from everyone involved. I could not be happier! * I feel so grateful for my family. We are each so different and a handful in our own ways, but together we make a strong and beautiful team!! * And lastly I truly appreciate my body and my mind for allowing myself to continually push and discover new potentials. We are always growing and traveling down new paths, I am blessed to be open to change however this may come. Happy Thanksgiving and Cheers to a Season of Gratitude!!
