Being gracious, generous Midwesterners, our Packer Backer friends tend to bring enough food to feed half of Lambeau. And so, when Victory Monday rolls around, my fridge is stacked like the Packers offensive line. What to do with all that extra food?
In honor of this being National Family Dinner month, we sat down with our calendar a few weeks ago, and they helped me sketch out a weeknight meal plan for September. Getting their input ahead of time = no disgusted faces at mealtime.

But I’m fortunate enough to harvest a few goodies from it each summer. Fresh produce and herbs are my favorite! If you don’t have a garden – no problem.

I consider myself a bonafide foodie. I love to try new recipes and new foods. I consider watching Top Chef or Masterchef the perfect night of TV. I LOVE to cook from scratch. New gadgets? No problem… until the Instant Pot came along!
I never wanted to be a woman who was bothered by aging, but I am. I have been wanting to write about my issues with aging even before that day in November. I didn't because I didn't have a moral of the story yet.
