Louisiana Saturday Night!

Louisiana Saturday Night!

It’s a Louisiana Saturday Night over here, Y’all! And tonight we are cooking some Eggplant Parmesan (MY FAV!) with some fresh eggplants just picked from the garden!

They will go well with the 500 lbs of pasta I accidentally cooked earlier. HEHE! πŸ˜‰

spaghetti

Every. Single. Time.

Am I the ONLY one who does this? I always cook enough pasta to feed approximately 125 people and I DON’T KNOW WHY! Maybe it’s just my Italian roots coming to the surface. πŸ™‚

What’s on the menu in your home tonight?

Our Top 10 Ways To Beat Those Winter Blues

Our Top 10 Ways To Beat Those Winter Blues

After having a few weeks of warm weather, we woke up this morning to some very unexpected COLD, GLOOMY weather. Ever since then, I have been feeling kind of down, and unable to shake these WINTER BLUES. Up until today, I had high hopes that this cold weather was behind us, and have been excitedly looking forward to Spring. But today really knocked the wind right out of my sails.Β 

It comes as no surprise that most people feel down or depressed during the winter months, and it is actually a very common problem that affects a large number of people. It is called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). If you think about it, most people are stuck indoors during the winter months trying to stay hidden from the wintery, gloomy, overcast weather outdoors. And we all know that when we are trapped indoors for long periods of time, we aren’t able to get much needed fresh air, sunlight, and social interaction. All of which are essential to a happy, healthy lifestyle.

Well, if you are like us….trying to fight the winter blues, we have a few solutions to help brighten your moon, and get you back on track!Β Here are some of our top tips for a better, and maybe even enjoyable winter for you and your entire family!Continue reading
