Christmas in July seems to be a big fad! Networks are airing Christmas shows, the stores already have holiday stuff out! It’s rather odd. I’m trying to ‘live in the moment’ and encourage it to others, yet the entire world is just jumping ahead. How do we simply stay in control of our own little world? It may seem impossible, but it’s really not. Focus and dedication should do the trick!
Frankly, living in Phoenix makes it virtually impossible anyway to imagine Christmas at this time! I walked outside this morning and realized I finally got the hot tub I’ve been waiting for! It’s my POOL! And even more amazing, I went out to my fig tree today and instead of figs on the branches I found loaves of fresh, hot baked fig bread!! It’s hot here people – HOT! I will truly be happy if this is the last summer I spend here! 20 years is long enough thank you!
I guess I could classify tonight’s dinner as somewhat ‘fallish.’ It reminds me almost of a chili. The recipe is called bean ragout with cilantro & cornmeal dumplings. I’ve never had it before. It calls for delicious ingredients such as: pablano chile, zucchini, red bell peppers, tomatoes, pinto & black beans – along with other herbs and spices! I will definitely share some pictures with you later and let you know how well it rates!! That’s about as close to fall and winter I’m going to get this time of year!
Hot or cold, whatever the temperature is…my dial is always set to healthy eating!
Here’s to a great week ahead! What miracles will happen this week?
