Friday Favorites: 5 Minute Meals, Solo Flights, and Free La Croix
1. The Gathering at Livingston
Is it reasonable to become "regulars" at a place an hour and a half from home?!?! If so, we are going to be regulars at The Gathering. This place just gets me. Farm-to-table local food (and EVERYTHING is amazing!), the most drool-worthy decor, fun snacks and things to take home, the coolest location...everything is just so wonderful. Not to mention, they have awesome free events like the gardening seminar we went to a few weekends ago. Oh the things I would do have this place local! For now, it will just have to be a treat when we visit Jackson...which let's be honest, is pretty often ;)
2. Five Minute Meals
If you haven't tried this frozen garlic cauliflower, you are missing out! We saw it at Sam's Club last week and after checking the ingredients (cauliflower, EVOO, sea salt, parsley, garlic) knew this would become a staple on our grocery list. (We eat a lot of cauliflower!) It is perfect for making mashed cauliflower because it is ready in 3 minutes and already seasoned. With just two more minutes, you can have dinner on the table and everyone convinced that you spent all day in the kitchen ;)
3. Rob's ridin' solo...again!
Rob flew his first solo flight in the T-45 this week which was super exciting! I feel like this will be the turning point of our time in Meridian and that the rest will just fly by. It's crazy to think that this is the third plane that he has flown in solo (solo in the T-6). While he is excited to get his wings and finish, I just want to stay in this bubble of flight school forever :) We celebrated with tableside s'mores at Harvest Grill which is officially one of my new favorite spots in Meridian!
4. The Best Yes
The neighborhood bible study that I am part of is currently reading "The Best Yes" by and I can't believe how perfect the timing has been of reading this book. I feel like recently every time I have a question in my heart about how to handle something, the next chapter addresses it. It's really helping me re-focus my anxious energy and prioritize my quiet time each day.
5. FREE La Croix for a YEAR!
This happened during a super busy time so I kind of forgot to share but I won a year supply of La Croix! For this La Croix addict, it's a HUGE deal! I go back and forth all the time on my favorite flavors: coconut, strawberry kiwi, or grapefruit but I also love passion fruit and apricot! Like I said, I'm addicted!
