Learned to let go
Chad is letting his membership at Milwaukee Makerspace go. He likes the community but the space itself isn’t matching up with what he’s doing. And then, on Saturday we celebrated our friend Dave’s 55th birthday at a party held by his family. He’s fighting stage four lung cancer so the event was bittersweet for all.
Tried to perfect a brisket recipe
We’ve been trying to come up with a plan to eat better more consistently and Chad’s eating a little more paleo so he thought he’d give an Instant Pot recipe for brisket. The recipe took waaaay longer than we thought. So we ended up calling for pizza.
Started to say hello to summer
Our landscapers are on their way and we just replaced our patio chairs. Now we just need the warm weather to arrive!

Welcome to Savoring Our Lives! In this week’s episode we:
Got an Instant Pot
We took the plunge and purchased a refurbished Instant Pot. Our first recipe was Korean beef. We were amazed at how it worked (and had to consult the user manual online).
Headed out for date night
We went to Tenuta’s in Bay View for Italian. Ruth got the mushroom ravioli and it was delicious. We’ll definitely be back and we’ll have to try the pizza!
Spent too much on wine
On Wednesday, we ordered by the glass and it was way more expensive than simply buying a bottle. Then, we were off to wineza with more wine. And finally on Saturday, we visited the new Total Wine near our house and brought wine home.
Got “How Far I’ll Go” stuck on a loop in our heads
We heard the main song from Disney’s Moana while shopping at Total Wine. Neither of us knows the words, so it just won’t leave our brains. Oh, and Chad rants on voice actors vs big name actors.
Trained the Beagiles
We celebrated Abby’s birthday last week Sunday. And we’ve been busy working with her to help her be safer and healthier.
