Happy Monday, everyone!! I hope you all had a great weekend. My family and I certainly have because we’ve been in Colorado visiting friends and family. Let me just say, Colorado is BEAUTIFUL!! I’m reminded of it each time we visit. There is fun, family, such beautiful scenery, it’s chilly, and just awesome. Oh, and there are Denver Bronco fans everywhere which makes my hubby a very happy man.

I’ve been thinking a lot about soups this weekend because of how chilly it has been, so I found a beautiful soup recipe from one of my fave recipe sites, Six Sisters Stuff. It’s for Stuffed Pepper Soup and Cheesy Garlic Flat Bread. How yummy does that sound? Makes me wanna get in my cozy sweats, and curl up on the couch with a bowl of this soup along with my favorite TV show (Master Chef happens to be my favorite right now).

So, be sure to make a double batch of this soup so that you can bring some to a friend that you’ve signed up on a Food Tiding for, as well as keep some for you beautiful family too! Both parties are sure to enjoy it. 🙂

Meal Idea Monday: 4th of July FUN!

1 Jul

Hi all! How’s the weather where you are? It’s been hovering around 115-117 degrees here in sunny Arizona these last few days… whew! Needless to say, we’ve been doing a lot of activities centered around water so that we can stay cool!

On Thursday, to celebrate the 4th of July, my family is heading to a neighborhood BBQ for some great food and lots of water fun. It’ll be so fun, and then once it’s dark we’ll get to watch the fireworks show. We’re looking forward to it!

Some of you are signed up to bring a meal to a friend or family member this week, and I have some great ideas for things you can make. I think making it more festive and cheery is ALWAYS the best way to go. Anything we can do as friends and family to show our love and care, and bring some sunshine into their life is the best option!! 🙂

Enjoy, and Happy 4th of July!!!

With St. Patrick’s Day coming up, I thought it would be fun to share some great recipe ideas with you. I found some great ones onFood Network, and my favorite looks to be Melissa’s Shepherd’s Pie.

It’s true that I may be a little partial since my last name is Shepherd…. but also all the ingredients in there are just delicious! This could be a spectacular meal to bring someone this week as we near St Patrick’s Day.

Don’t forget to wear green on Sunday, so you don’t get pinched! 😉

Oh, and here are a few really cute printables you can bring with your meal to spruce things up and add a little color! GREEN color, that is!

This cutie printable I found on Pinterest, and it’s from The Hands On Housewife.
