We’ve been enjoying more light dinners with friends. Here’s a great recipe that uses leftover steak: Serve a Grilled Steak Caprese Board.

Especially since you can buy heirloom tomatoes and fresh basil now, this dinner board is one of our favorites! Everyone makes their own sandwich. You can ask your guests to bring a side salad or wine, and maybe pop a Zucchini Banana Cake in the oven? Yes, please!

Meal prep meals

We’ve decided to make our time count. If we’re cooking steak, we make extra, for leftover steak sandwiches and salads.

You can get so many more meals out of the leftovers! In fact, my friend Gina recently wrote a new cookbook, Skinnytaste Meal Prep: Healthy Make-Ahead Meals and Freezer Recipes to Simplify Your Life.

Skinnytaste Cookbook cover Meal Prep

It’s all about saving time, money, and calories with her healthy freezer meals, ready-to-serve dishes, grab-and-go breakfasts and lunches, and “planned-overs,” meals.

Speaking of making your time count, have you been getting outside lately? Right before the smoke rolled in to our town (we are praying for all of the west coast fires!), these colors were popping up. With everything that has happpened in 2020, I also love the quote from Henry Miller.

fall aspen tree colors

The slight breeze between the aspen trees, the smell of the pines, the deer emerging from the scrub brush, the river that runs between our property and the forest, every day I’m trying to get outside to enjoy it all. To some who’ve lived here for quite some time, this may all be ordinary now. For us, it’s still new. In fact, every day can be ordinary if we allow it to be. My husband and I both work full time, and it’s easy to stick our noses in the computer and never come up for air. Purposely taking an ordinary day, and finding newness … suddenly you are filled with happiness, thankfulness, and joy!

“One’s destination is never a place, but rather a new way of looking at things.” Henry Miller
