After Spring break, followed by a week in Cabo, I'm having a really hard time getting back into the "groove"! I'm getting a little sloppy! For example, this morning: we all got up, got ready for school, packed lunches, and walked to school. The girls kept complaining that they didn't want to go. One had a tummy ache. The other didn't want to stay if the other was going home...
We got to school, the bell rang, they didn't want to stay.
I didn't have it in me to persuade them so I said, "ok, let's go home."
Now all the little monkeys are home today and it doesn't bother me a bit!
I think I'm still on siesta!!
We celebrated Daddy's birthday yesterday with an unseasonably cool visit to the beach!
We believe in birthday "weeks" around here (if not birthday months!) so there will be more celebrating this week to let our Daddy bear know just how special we think he is and how grateful we are that God has blessed him with another year of life!
Before I go play with my "sick" children! I want to share a favorite recipe that you should try tonight! Or this week! It's a fam favorite!
Sweet Potato Sloppy Joes
aka "Sloppy Newquists"
- In a large skillet, heat a tablespoon oil over medium-high. Add onion and sweet potato and cook until softened, 8 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds; season with salt and pepper. Add turkey and cook, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until browned, 6 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and cook until sauce is reduced by half, 5 minutes. Serve on buns alongside kale chips.
See you Wednesday with some photos from our Mexican adventure!
