my MARCH menu

I’ve heard it never slows down, so I’m going to adjust as best I can. As this post is happening a bit late, this is …

daisi - September 30, 2012

Cucumber & Green Chili Topping

Monday: Fish Fillets with Tomatoes,  Squash, and Basil Again, I used the pre-made parchment paper packets, so much easier. We really liked this recipe and I used halibut instead of our usual tilapia so it was much heartier than our usual fish portion. Tuesday: Pasta with roasted tomatoes and Italian chicken In an on-going effort to clean out our freezer (story of my life), I …

color run

This weekend we participated in the first-time-to-Tulsa Color Run, also known as the happiest 5K on the planet.

Loving Summer

daisi - July 25, 2011

Here is a quick pic recap of what we’ve been up to so far this summer. I celebrated Cinco de Mayo with friends at a Drillers game and then Elote for some luchador wrestling. Watching, not participating. On the way to our car, we happened upon a random shopping cart and had some fun! Later in May, our friends, Dan & Whitney hosted their annual …
