Ruth attended Shakespeare in the Park

Ruth went out with a friend
She went to dinner with her friend Katie at Tofte’s Table in Waukesha. We ate (way too much) at the bar and paired everything with a bottle of Pinot Gris.

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