Saturday Snapshot…. Weekend Cooking… A Little Investing In Me.

18

Hey all.  I meant to get this posted earlier but well… you know…  life and laundry and working on projects and OH where does the time go?  😉  I think (I think…) I mentioned here somewhere in my ramblings that I am in a season of investing in me.  I am trying to move forward with healthy habits….more activity in my life than the last year+, good friendships, good activities, and healthy eating.  I think I am making progress and thought I would give you a recap of this “Investing In Me”here for Saturday Snapshot along with a tasty recipe for Weekend Cooking.

Yes…. this post is a combo platter.

Yes.  That is this week.

Monday I participated in the first Game Night at one of my favorite venues, Prairie Bay

Tuesday was book club…. Classic night.... a little Fitzgerald set in the 20’s

Wednesday I got a hair cut bought new tennis shoes and headed to the gym and the elliptical

Thursday I went to the Prairie Bay 2nd Thursday community night

Friday I hit the gym and the Group Power class

 

And now for that recipe….  this is something I picked up from one of the Librarian’s and ooh this is so good.

Ok… here is something TASTY!

You need:
4-6 ears of corn
1/2 onion chopped
cherry tomatoes – yellow and red – cut in half
2 TBSP lemon juice
red pepper flakes
fresh basil
2 TBS olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

With sharp knife remove the corn kernels from the shucked corn. Heat oil over medium heat in large skillet. Add corn and onion to the skillet – shake and stir the pan for 3-5 minutes until browned. Gently add the chopped tomatoes and heat an additional 2-3 minutes until hot. Place in bowl and season with the pepper flakes and lemon juice and sprinkle the chopped basil on top. Season to taste.

**To mix it up – add an egg to the mix while cooking, or chicken or shrimp to make it more of a meal. Delicious!

 

That’s my week.  Hope yours was eventful in positive ways.  🙂  Tomorrow… I hope to share with you about a little event coming up I like to call… Books, Burgers, and Brews.  Stay tuned.  😉

  1. Yay you for investing in yourself. Good job. Looks like you’re having fun — and getting in shape. I like the sound of that recipe!

  2. I think I could make that yummy recipe. Thanks for sharing it. I’m happy to see you are investing in yourself. Excellent.

  3. Happiness is showing, so the investing is paying off! The recipe also looks good…..love corn, probably shouldn’t but I do.

    • I love corn too… and thank you for seeing the happiness – it is a weird word… I don’t know if it is happiness, but maybe strength returning and a desire to live for both myself and my son.

  4. Your hair looks adorable!

  5. Looks like you’ve had a busy week! Your corn and tomato recipes looks yummy.
    Congratulations on your investing-in-you progress.

  8. Sheila, I enjoyed the combo platter. Thanks for sharing the recipe. It looks and sounds delicious! I added corn to the rice mix I made last night. Have a terrific weekend. 🙂

  9. Welcome back-you look darling as a flapper.

  10. Sounds like you had a good week. Investing in yourself is definitely worth it. I’ve taken up bullet journalling to try and invest in myself a little more.

    P.S. – That looks delicious! 🙂

  11. So glad you are getting out and about and back into the swing of things. Sounds like a very full & fun week!!

  12. Your book club always looks like so much fun. I’m glad you are investing in yourself, and it sounds like you are off to a good start.

  13. Investing in yourself is so important. I know how important it is myself and yet I never do it. I love that you shared with us exactly what you planned to do. It’s inspiring just to read a plan. I feel so out of it these days and I have no good excuse for it.

  14. You had a full and productive week. Glad you are taking more time for you. Hugs, my friend.
