Getting Ready for the 4th of July

I know that for the past few Fridays I have done a round-up post of recipes on my blog.  There are a few reasons for that.

  1. There are a ton of recipes on the blog and I think you should try them all.
  2. I don’t have a ton of new recipes in my back pocket at the moment.

Mostly it’s that second reason. Getting Ready for the 4th of July | Life Healthfully Lived

Things are just a little bit nuts over here.  I mentioned on Monday that Adam and I are looking for a house and that is taking a lot of our time.  We plan on buying in the suburbs and because we live in the city, that’s a lot of commuting back and forth.  Plus, I already commute out to the burbs every day for work.

I’m pretty much always in a vehicle.

So that doesn’t leave a lot of time for creative new recipes.  If you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably noticed a theme lately.  Some type of protein, some type of fat (usually guac), and some type of green vegetable.  That is the extent of my recipe making right now.  I just don’t have the brain power or time to make new stuff.

The meals of a busy family aren’t always pretty, but they are tasty!

I know it won’t always be that way and I know eventually I will get my time back.  But for now, I will share new things when I have them and keep reminding you of all the delicious things I’ve already made!

Speaking of, here are some tasty things you can make for your 4th of July celebrations!
