So now that you have my exciting weekend line up, here is my Feel Good Friday update. I am feeling good about getting in a few nice walks this week (by nice I mean 2+ miles each). One of them was to the farmers market on Wednesday. I didn't get a huge shop but I got some fresh apples (not too many...we are going to the orchard after all), some fresh red skin potatoes and a batch of fresh green beans. I am loving the fresh picked green beans lately. I had a very happy two year old when I picked her up from pre-school and she found out that there were fresh apples in the car. Extra bonus...the market on Wednesdays is at The Cleveland Clinic. World renowned for their care. They host a local farmers market on site every Wednesday all summer which scores them extra points with me on their emphasis on health but this week they also had someone handing out reusable grocery bags to haul your loot back in. Cost of said bag? A smile! How awesome!
Yesterday afternoon I was driving home and could not stop thinking about pork chops. I wanted pork chops for dinner. I myself have never cooked pork chops but wasn't going to let that stand in my way. Where I used to have a feeling of dread in the pit of my stomach when I would think about attempting to make something I have never made before, I am "feeling good" about the fact that now I view it as a challenge. Mini me and I made a quick stop at the grocery store (which ended up with us also picking up some fresh peaches) and went home to start on Operation Pork Chop. Found a recipe on Food on the Table that I decided I wanted to try (again, loving that app) and set to it.
