James home…woowho! Favorite Tex-Mex restaurant these days is Chuy’s…hmmmm…that jalapeño dip is divine!
Menu: Crispy Tacos and lots and lots of jalapeño dip!

James out of town, Trevor off working…Evan and I decide to skip dinner…no kitchen to clean!

Ash Wednesday AND Spaghetti @ COTHA…great fellowship before a powerful service.
Tuesday – February 17 – Shrove Tuesday

Monday – February 16
Have I mentioned how long and arduous Mondays can be? Of course I have and today was no exception…didn’t get home until after 8p. The good news was that I thought ahead and prepared a crock pot meal. Hating it in the morning as I try to leave but loving it when I get home…delayed gratification!
Menu: Garlicky Pot Roast by eMeals
Lesson Learned: It’s wasn’t as good as Loretta’s (grandmas) … I really need to get her recipe AND crock pot liners are awesome! Made clean up super easy!
Sunday – February 15
It’s been a quiet, steady, productive day…my favorite kind of Sunday. But this evening is very quiet…almost too much. James is in Guatemala drilling for a water well and both of the boys are out with friends…quiet. And well, I’m certainly not gonna cook just for myself…so I enjoyed myself a magically delicious bowl of cereal!
Friday – February 13
This evening, James and I had some members of our jeep club over for a Spring Break Wheeling Trip planning dinner. We will be tackling the Ozark Overland Trail, Devils Den and the Kiamichi Trail over the course of 9 days…it’s gonna be a great time. Check out this video. I decided to whip up some chili for the meeting. I use “whip up” because that’s just what I did…confidently and successfully. Only thing to improve would be start time…the longer the chili has to simmer, the better the taste and I was pushing it to be done. Lesson learned.
