Amazing food. Amazing read.
This creamy cheesy buttery bacon-y cauliflower bake is THE best! I could eat it everyday! Butter on my green veggies with a little onion powder and salt too... So much flavour!
Egg salad with cucumber chips: Hard boiled eggs, combined with chopped pieces of pickle, and avocado, mixed with mustard, homemade olive oil mayo, some sour cream, (seasoned with granulated garlic, celery seed, Himalayan salt, and pepper) sprinkled with paprika, served surrounded by slices of crunchy cucumber. #lunch#salad#eggs
We traveled to the heat to try a taste of so-called Southern hospitality after suffering frostbite from the Seattle freeze. Surprisingly enough, our entire visit was void of the very things that enticed our exodus. Not one new number was exchanged, little changed with the contents of my contact list. Of course I could have created some sort of social circle, but being around associates simply for the sake of having someone in my space is something that no longer serves me. Quality prevails above quality at this point, particularly with people. 🔹
Collecting companions was characteristic of my charmed youth. People were playthings--I was interested in individuals, dug the diversity of different dispositions, and always wanted to party which was much more fun with a multitude of mates. Exclusivity was a waste, I wanted to indulge my intrigue so everyone was invited. Eventually I surrounded myself with so many sidekicks, suitors, sycophants, and strangers that I struggled to separate supporters from stragglers and started to feel suffocated by my congested social circle. The first moment I found to flee was not forsaken and I flipped from frenetic social singleton to seeking solitude with my sweetheart suddenly. Our cloistered coupling was comforting. 🔹
Now I need something new. Isolation was insulating. Indulging the introvert inside of me was interesting. But balancing both my penchant for privacy and predilection to participate in public is paramount presently. The kids can't be kept in confinement and I'm ready to revive the vivacious vixen that vanished into a void. And it's already happening here as I'd hoped. We're frolicking with family, exploring our environment, cultivating community, and it's feasible that I've found a fabulous new friend. My intention to make the most of this move is materializing. Being better begins. #coffeetalk#bulletproofcoffee#coffee#icandoit#louisehay#affirmations#newbeginnings#freshstart#friends
