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!
4-6 ears of corn
1/2 onion chopped
cherry tomatoes – yellow and red – cut in half
2 TBSP lemon juice
red pepper flakes
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. 😉

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!
It feels good to be setting goals and be forward thinking. 🙂
I think I could make that yummy recipe. Thanks for sharing it. I’m happy to see you are investing in yourself. Excellent.
The recipe is delicious. I know I am late on the peak of corn season but I still really enjoyed this as dinner.
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.
Your hair looks adorable!
Thanks Kathy 🙂
Looks like you’ve had a busy week! Your corn and tomato recipes looks yummy.
Congratulations on your investing-in-you progress.

It is super tasty. I have not tried it with chicken or shrimp yet but some time I would like to.
I like your haircut….a cute pixie-like vibe. Enjoy your new goals of investing in you….thanks for sharing.
Thanks Laurel 🙂
Simple and delicious! Have a great week.
That is the way I like to cook 🙂
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. 🙂
I love corn and feel like I don’t use it enough in recipes.
Welcome back-you look darling as a flapper.
LOL – it was a fun night.
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! 🙂
Good for you! I think in this busy crazy world it is easy to get lost in all the to dos…. I am making a point to making sure I am on that list in healthy ways….
So glad you are getting out and about and back into the swing of things. Sounds like a very full & fun week!!
Book By Book
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.
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.
You had a full and productive week. Glad you are taking more time for you. Hugs, my friend.
