Jumping on the train to share 3 things I learned this month:
Basil Mint Dressing is the best thing on the Chopt menu. Seriously, I could drink it. Here’s the recipe: 4 lemons, zest of lemon, 1.5 T honey, 1 tsp Dijon mustard, 3T chopped basil, 1 T chopped parsley, 1 T chopped mint, salt and pepper, 1 cup of olive oil. Make it. Add in some lime or some jalapeno. You will thank me later.
Stress fractures are no fun. What started out as ignored plantar fasciitis escalated to a pretty nasty heel fracture. So now I’m rocking a boot that is no joke hot and itchy. Thankfully, no crutches.
Playing card games with all of my kids is actually fun now. Somehow all have passed across that dreadful Chutes and Ladders bridge into games that actually have strategy. Our favorite games this month are Uno, Skip-bo and Farkle (which is a terrible name so we call it Sparkle. Obviously). Many afternoons we pull up around the kitchen table and even my youngest can hang. It’s been a game changer.
That’s our August. What did you learn?
