Life has been super busy, and a bit crazy, for me lately.
The biggest thing was the G-baby’s 1st birthday. Yes! She is already 1 year old!! Where does the time go people? It seems like it was just yesterday that I was holding a little newborn bundle in my arms!
Now she runs through the house chasing us,
and hiding Kevin’s phone.
Where’s Papa’s phone Kylee?
Can you go get Papa’s phone?
*comes back empty handed* Huh?
*Kevin goes to find his phone*
Ya, that’s the game she likes to play.
Of course I am not crazy enough to let her take my phone. Papa is soooooo easy #sucker
The other big deal is that my daughter (you remember Miss Picky Pants?) has moved back in with us for a while. She is thinking about finishing up her college pre reqs and then going to school in Germany.
Don’t get me started.
I am game for her getting her schooling done.
But in Germany?
Ya, Mom is trying to keep her mouth shut on that one. But between you and me, I think I would lose my shizz if she was that far away.
Stay calm Mom……UGH!!!
So, what do I do when I am stressed out?
Cook of course, y’all know that.
What do I cook when I am suuuuuuuuper stressed?
But not just any Mexican food.
Oh no! It has to be extra creamy, extra cheesy, and just a bit spicy.
Yup, that and a nice cold beer makes me feel much better. Not sure if it is the cheese, or the beer that does that. But I don’t question that, I just enjoy!
So, if you are stressed, need to calm down, or are just hungry for some amazing Mexican food, grab what you need, and give these a try.
Your tummy, and your family, will thank you.
I know mine did!
