1st sunset didn't disappointis happy about my last weeks achievementCold day by the bay at the beach ~ no excuses bundle up #moveitA favorite veggie side dish only 3 ingredients white sweet potato, white onion, and a sweet apple.
Original recipe from a Chef Kathleen cookbook.
Sliced , layered, and baked makes it sweet and delicious 😊Breakfast prep minus 1 for quality check by my husband 😂
Used 1/2 egg, 1/2 turkey brown and serve link, sautéed peppers and onions, filled with egg whites and topped with a teaspoon of shredded cheese. Husband approved 😉Finally had a beautiful sunset this weekend. Been stormy until this afternoon and this evening.Great morning woke up before daylight enjoyed a cup of coffee and Spark. Crawled back in bed for another hour. Time for another cup of coffee and the great view.
Happy Sunday everyone 🤗Enjoyed my weekend at the beach☉🌊
Highlights watching wildlife including this deer, bunnies, squirrels, all types of birds including a bald eagle. Hated leaving to go back to work tomorrow.Looking for motivation today. Pulled out shorts from my biggest to what fits today. There's 5" extra on the pink shorts. My kitty doesn't want to be left out of the picture.Spent the weekend at the beach.
Not the best pictures as deer move fast. 1st picture of the buck Friday evening in back yard, 2nd picture Saturday morning in front yard of 1 of 2 not so babies, and 3rd of mama. Thinking of you @LORI-K deer~deer~deer 😉
Hope everyone had a great weekend.Spending a special day with my hubby
❤Happy🎉24th🍾Anniversary💖The chili is finally done ~ I tried something new and roasted the veggies. The recipe is 15 minute chili from spark recipes with added veggies to eat the rainbow. It is a fast recipe but it takes time to meld the flavors for best results.I have deer in the yard 😊
Had 4 this morning and 3 this afternoon.
Thinking of you @texashsmomof3 and @lori-k gorgeous animals to watchPretty skytonight, no sun at sunset but beautiful colors.Meal prep morning as I ran out of time on Sunday. Meatballs are inspiration from Hungry Girl recipe ~ I used ground turkey and taco seasoning (my own blend to limit sodium), mix, cook, and done. I use in tacos @stillsparkleigh or salads. My egg "muffins" are a mix of whatever is in the fridge that weekMy favorite time of the year. The sun sets where I can see it from the beach houseThis is my kind of day ~

5 day vacation here in a week to celebrate my 25 wedding anniversaryPortland has the worst air pollution in the world today. The picture is our airport control tower about 1/2 mile away ~ it is just a shadow through the haze and ash. Oregon has multiple wildfires burning and the smoke is terrible - it will be an indoor weekend for me. I am thankful I am not in danger but I have had family and friends evacuated from their homes.Celebrating 25 years of marriage ðŸ’•ðŸ¾ðŸ¥‚ðŸ’–
