What did you make or do this month that was memorable?

What was delicious in your life?

Mother’s Day, my anniversary, warmer weather, and longer days were delicious.

And so was the sangria, the cookies, and yes, even Brussels’s sprouts.

I’m proud of myself for posting a few savory recipes, for tackling making homemade mustard (that and canning, I can check off my life’s bucket list), and for even cooking at all some day. Because some days it would be easier to eat nachos for dinner than to cook. Can you relate?

Thanks for the Champion Sports Bra Giveaway entries & TGIF!
