my week(s) in review: the view from here, there, and everywhere

Hi. Hello. Hola.

How are you?

Where have you been?

Wait, where have I been?Β (on Instagram mostly… join me: celiacinthecity)

Let me tell you guys, things have been craaaaazy around the Nielsen household this past month.

We’re moving. To a temporary condo. With a puppy. But currently living up at the cottage in the northwoods of Wisconsin. With our puppy. We’re house hunting. We need a yard. For our puppy.

Did I mention we got a puppy? πŸ˜‰

Now I get the term furbabies — until we have babies of our own, this little guy will be getting all of my bottled up unconditional love.

He’s as much work as we expected and then some, but he has also brought JOY to our lives.

While we’re “roughing it” up here, we’ve had visitors….

The bubbas! (big fans of the hammock — who isn’t?!)

We celebrated my celiac sista’s birthday in style — with cake for breakfast. πŸ™‚Β photo 2

We take nap time seriously around here.

And food. We don’t joke around about food. Β photo 1

Grilled flank steak with our secret marinade. (*update: it’s not a secret anymore, you can get it in one of the gluten-free boxes from Pairdd!)

Local asparagus makes me smile. Have you ever “hunted” for asparagus? We used to go out and cut asparagus in the ditches every spring while growing up in Minnesota, with our grandpa and grandma. My mamasita makes a mean creamed of asparagus over toast. How are you cooking up this seasonal favorite?

And the pasta salad? You should make it tonight. Just cook your favorite GF pasta (we used Jovial) and top it with either store bought or homemade Greek Vinaigrette dressing, feta cheese, kalamata olives, and cucumbers. It was a hit, even with the kiddos.

We used leftovers for “Anything Goes Egg Cups.” Really, you can use anything. And if you don’t have meat to put in the bottom, you can just scramble all the ingredients.

I’ve been taking part of a “100 Days of Workouts” challenge with some girlfriends — it’s now day 68 and still going strong.

It’s easy when there are views like this up here…photo 5

I snuck off to the “big city” to plug in quick and say hello to you all, isn’t the Java Lodge peaceful? (it’s way easier than trying to “share” your morning coffee with little Lincoln)photo 5

He’s on his way into town now with dad so we can test out the leash. Wish me luck. And stay tuned, I’ll check in when I can — when the internet is available, when the moving is over, and when we can get back to the kitchen together. I’ve been wanting to make Blueberry Mojito Muffins… who’s with me?

But for now? We play.Β photo 4

EnJOY your day.

xoxo Β  Sarah & Lincoln πŸ™‚
