A few weeks ago we found out we are moving back to Southern California for a couple of years so my world has been spinning! My husband is in the Air Force so we have the opportunity to move every few years. Many friends laugh when I say “opportunity” but I think you just have to look at it that way. It’s not the most fun uprooting every few years but given that I wouldn’t be where I am today without all of the wonderful people that have been brought into my life because of our moves, I have to look at it as an opportunity. At least that’s what I say on my good days….
I am looking forward to being in a place where I can find anything organic again (it’s been quite a chore here in FL). Also, I can finally buy raw milk at the store instead of showing up on a certain day at co-op. I asked my daughter if she was ok with the move and she replied, “Yep, I can’t wait to go back to the big farmer’s market!” Ahhh, a girl after my own heart.
With so many things to do, again I have been reaching for those quick meals. The other night I streamlined my beef chili recipe so that I could put it together quickly and then just leave it on the stove until dinner. Plus with the new coolness in the air (it’s only 65, but hey, a girl will take what she can get) a warm bowl of chili has been the perfect ending to all of my chaotic days.
