I can’t believe it’s already day 78 of this crazy challenge!! The last few weeks of 4M failure REALLY shouldn’t count, but struggling and failing is all part of this process. Right? RIGHT???? The past few weeks have been A LLLLOT. I’m like a helium balloon in a park, bobbing from tree to tree, never hitting the ground. That sounds fun, but it’s soooo not … Continue reading Day 78/365.
This is truly comforting, delicious, hearty, healthy, cheap, down-home cooking. This is the cooking of my people, especially on my father’s side. The Tannehill’s grew up near the Lake of the Ozarks, before it was the touristy place it is now, in an area called Kaiser, Missouri. The major key factors I know about my father’s side of the family is this: they drink coffee … Continue reading Collards and Beans w/Cornbread Mug Cake.
I wonder how easy life would be if we could cut off our emotions and just be robots? Granted, I don’t want that kind of life. But could I maybe have just a touch of it? My year-long challenge is 60 days in, and I’m seeing the extreme, incredible benefits in pushing past the way I feel, or how much I don’t want to do … Continue reading Day 60/365.
HAPPY OCTOBERFEST! It’s that time of year, and it doesn’t matter if you can’t socialize safely right now. That just means more food and beer for YOU! So FaceTime your favorite German, crack open a Hefeweizen, and enjoy these packets of goodness all by yourself! Lächerlich!!! (That means yummy in Octoberfestland…) Continue reading Kielbasa & Cabbage Freezer Packets.
I have recently discovered that I’m slightly sensitive to garlic. Especially the volume of garlic they use in restaurants. What are they doing ~ marinating the food in a garlic oil bath? It’s just too much, along with all the oil, sugar and salt. It’s like they don’t trust that we’ll come back to their restaurant unless they show all their cards in every single … Continue reading Pesto & Hummus for Lovers.
Day 44 of the M&M Challenge… Before I spill my guts ~ I feel a little self-conscious about this post. I have no earthly idea if anyone will even remotely relate to this. But for some reason, here I am, digressing way too much… Here are my latest, new discoveries: 1. Oh man, it takes a village. A village of apps and notifications, alarms and … Continue reading Day 44/365.
Buying or selling a house is such an emotional time for everyone. I love to help people in their hour of need, so it’s no small wonder that I love being a realtor. And while I hope my 1st buyers never leave their home (it’s that beautiful), I know they’ll call on me to help sell their house, should the need arise. NOT because I’m … Continue reading Closing Gift Chocolate Chip Cookies.
I’ve tried to write this post for five days now, and every time I start, I get lost in a million thoughts. I don’t want these to be too long and laborious, and I definitely don’t want them to be a play-by-play of all the amaaaaahzing things I’ve learned and accomplished ~ brag brag brag, or even worse, all the crap things that have happened … Continue reading Day 34/365.
Rough week for the good ole M&M challenge. M&M’s…I hardly knew ye. I won’t bore you with the ugly details of my week. Let’s just say that I was too sick to lift the remote, so I watched back-to-back episodes of House Hunters International, until I was 100% convinced that packing my bags and moving to sunny Croatia was my only option. I came to … Continue reading Day 22.
Day 15 of the M&M challenge, and here’s what I’ve learned so far: 1. Crossing those four M’s off the list is probably never going to be a routine that looks the exact same way every day for me. My life is so incredibly different every day, and I’m the reason why. I mean, DUH. I’m a musician, an online voice teacher, and a real … Continue reading Day 15
