511 – Hashtag: Gallbladder


Welcome to Savoring Our Lives! In this week’s episode, we:

Found out about gallbladders
Ruth has been in pain for a few weeks and went to see her doctor. Right now, the doctor is thinking it’s a gallbladder issue. We’ll find out next week after an ultrasound.

Were challenged to eat vegetarian
Ruth’s second cousin Sydnee was in town and challenged Ruth to eat vegetarian for a week (or two) and see how she feels.

Cheeseburger Pizza!

Got the wrong pizza…and the right pizza
We ordered the cheeseburger pizza and Ricardo’s rung in cheese. Whoops! They re-made the pizza AND gave us the incorrect pizza. #allthecarbsandfat

Went to Camp One Step orientation
Chad went to orientation for cancer camp this week. He’s volunteering as a counselor after having attended the camp in 1986 as a camper.

509 – Going to Camp


Welcome to Savoring Our Lives! In this week’s episode, we:

Returned to meal prep

Chili Lime Chicken Skillet

We picked four recipes and shopped for them all. We spent three hours Sunday afternoon making all the recipes. It was the perfect amount of food for the week. Check out this Chili Lime Sweet Potato Chicken Skillet recipe.

Used Yelp to find pizza
Chad was dog-sitting and we tried to find local pizza. We ended up at Pizza Man in Oak Creek. We tried a chicken pesto specialty pizza along with a Dry Creek Vineyards Cabernet.

Bought some flowers for the lanai

Never enough flowers

Ruth went shopping for plants, flowers, and hanging baskets at Prospect Hill Gardens. Everyone is done with winter and was out gathering plants.

Got the news Chad is going to camp
In middle school, Chad attended a cancer camp called Camp One Step. As a 40-year survivor, he applied and now has the opportunity to be a counselor at the same camp.

Decided to be more social
Ruth had a ton of social engagements this week and really enjoyed it. She doesn’t go out a lot but she’s going to start asking people to hang out with her. And Chad’s going to go out more, too. #tacodate #makerdate
