Howdy y'all! How was your 4th of July? It has been so dang hot here. 90 degrees is just not was we are used to in Washington! So we had a quiet day, just the two of us. BBQed for lunch, relaxed, then packed a picnic and hit the beach for some fireworks. Nice, easy, safe, and fun. 

One of the things we packed for our little outing was this Fresh Tomato Pasta Salad. Folks, I am obsessed with this pasta salad right now. Seriously, I have it bad! I have gone through 3 pounds of pasta in the last couple of weeks!! It is A) super simple to make, and  B) so light and tasty. Lately I am all about some fresh tomatoes. I can't seem to get enough. I have been making was seems like gallons of Salsa Fresca and putting it on everything, especially my eggs in the morning, and Pico de Gallo has been going on grilled chicken, steak, and even burgers. Do you get obsessed with seasonal fruits and veggies? I am almost as bad with corn!! Ohhh ya!

Oh hellooooo and Happy Thursday my darling foodies! 

Why am I in such a good mood? Well, I will tell you. Today I get to babysit the G-baby for the first time! Wooohoooo Nana and the beastie together for the whole day! I am so excited, and the time is going soooooo slowwwwww. I have been up since 4:30 AM and 9:45 seems like a million light years from now *sigh* I know, patience, patience. I am not so good at patience. I am the one that wants to give everyone their Christmas presents early because I can't wait to see their face when they open it. My kids always knew they would get to open at least one gift early.

Slow Cooker Green Chile Pork Posole

Slow Cooker Green Chile Pork Posole - Made with roasted chiles, this slow cooker version of pork posole is a family favorite any time of the year.

Last week I ended up with some sort of a bug. I don't know if it was a summer cold, or just my allergies deciding to raise hell with me (which they are known to do quite often). All I know is that I felt horrible. Headache, sore throat, tummy was just "Blah", and nothing sounded good. All I wanted to do was sit on the sofa with my blanket, tissue, and Netflix. I had no energy, or desire, to cook anything. Even thinking about food was off the table. Untillllllll a little birdie, or voice, wait let's go with birdie because voices in my head just make me sound...well anyway...the birdie reminded me that I haven't made posole in a very lonnnnnnnnnng time. And with that, a spark of energy hit me and I jumped, OK, OK, maybe that is exaggerating a bit. Let's just say I got off the couch with purpose.
