Simple Mushrooms

I love quick and easy recipes to add to dinner. My kids don’t generally like mushrooms but this recipes adds a great flavor to them. White mushrooms are like a blank canvas ready to absorb all the flavors that we give them.

This recipe is simple and leaves room to add more flavors to it. This would be great spiced up to give it a little kick. Adding a peppered spice would make these the perfect topping to go with steak. Give them a try and let me know how they taste!

  2. Slice mushrooms to desired size
  3. Once pan is hot add mushrooms and stir them around
  4. Add seasoning
  5. Keep stirring for about 20 minutes

Gardening time

Who plants a garden… or at least tries to? This is the first year in a very long time I can plant one and give it a good shot. I have the sun, soil, and fertilizer all ready.

My first problem is that I have no experience and the answers online can be confusing. There is so much out there to think about and to use.

My second problem is that I want to plant it all! There are so many seeds and my girls (minus one) loved to eat veggies and fruit. Especially straight out of the garden.

The third problem is that I have to make sure I keep up with it. I have to make sure that I have time everyday devoted to gardening and making sure they are doing well. I might even sing to them to encourage them to grow. On the second though they might die to avoid my voice haha

My solution is to cut the garden into 4 squares. I want to plant it in a way to rotate it every year. I think this will be the best way to make the soil last the longest. It is important to replace the nutrients as well or the soil will not be good after a few rotations. I hope I get a good crop this year. Wish me luck.

Date nights.

I think one of the most important things in a relationship is to make tine for each other. Life can get so busy and we can forget that we have another person in our life that also needs our genuine attention.

I love our girls but when you are in a marriage it is important to put your spouse first. I don’t mean to ignore your kids and put them on the back burner. Your kids will always be taken care of and loved but you can completely ignore your spouse, on accident of course.

We make it a priority to put each other first and by doing this the girls reap the benefits. They get the best of us both because we take that time to make sure that our relationship is solid.

Our little date nights are the best. We don’t always go out because we have three girls at home but you can make a date night right at home. Many times we have just put a movie on and put our phones away to spend quality time together.
