Avocado and Feta BLT Salad

Before we officially say goodbye to summer, I had to toss in this recipe using those amazing garden tomatoes!  Say hello to my Avocado and Feta BLT Salad.  Hello :)

Up here in Minnesota, Mother Nature has finally turned off the high heat and humidity and the evenings are beginning to feel like the fall, which just happens to be my favorite season by the way.  However, everywhere I turn there are boxes and containers of free produce as my fellow gardeners share their abundance with their community.  Love that!Take a BLT salad to a whole new level by adding some avocado, feta cheese, corn and a fresh homemade dressing. Made with thick cut bacon. Best recipe!


Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

I needed something sweet and indulgent this week.  I was one sad little Mom and these Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins really filled a gap in my heart.  Don’t judge….chocolate can do that for some people.

For the first time in 21 years, I do not have a little shadow “helping” me in everything I do during the day.  My little baby girl began Kindergarten this week and it was a difficult moment when I had to drop her off on Monday morning.  With six children, I can barely remember a time when there weren’t little hands making a mess of every room I just cleaned, or little eyes filled with tears because it was nap time, or little ouchies to kiss at every fall and bump of the head.

This is a new season in my life and I feel a bit like a lost puppy trying to find its way home.
