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
