Friends, are you staying warm? Our fall so far this year is very chilly. So it’s time to pull out your favorite fuzzy slippers, fleece pajamas, and sit by the fire in the morning with my favorite espresso. I’m also sharing a few thoughts on “keeping our joy” this holiday season!

Instant Pot Mango Chicken Chili

The thing I love about the 6-quart Instant Pot (a glorified pressure cooker) most is you can sear meats, and vegetables in it before using the slow cooker or pressure cooker function. My husband has actually used this small kitchen appliance more than I have, and he says the good flavors stay right in the pan. Everything cooks in one pot, and it’s super quick and easy!

Secret ingredient to the best chili?

Orange zest! Try it – you’ll like it. We really love a citrus-y chili, so this really adds to the flavor. Oh, and smoked ground cumin if you can find it.

Where’s your joy through the holidays?

Today, let’s talk about joy. Do you find some days you are more joyful than others? We often lose our sense of joy when dealing with all the extra expectations of the holidays.

If you think you’re the only one who gets overwhelmed, frustrated, and feeling that you aren’t doing things perfectly, especially when something last minute pops up–then you’re not alone.

I really believe that unmet expecations can dampen our joy, and then we have to search for it. I’ve been there, many times.

When my joy is gone, I know what to do, and it takes work to get it back. It means that I need to do soul work. Have my expectations gotten the best of me? I need to start over, fresh, reading truth and practicing it.

That’s when joy settles deep.

If we make the the decision to ‘live in the moment’ and to enjoy what is at hand–embrace it, decide to enjoy it, laying down all perfectionism–then peace returns!

Joy also comes from being grateful, feeling filled with connection (which is why we show hospitality a lot over the holidays), truthfulness, radiating love, and that twinkle of inspiration from remembering the reason for the season.

For me, this season, I’ve tried something new. Every day I’ve composed a handwritten letter, or sent an email, or have made a phone call to someone I want to connect with, someone on my heart.

I’ve also experienced joy by cooking for others, or hosting guests.
