By the end of this year, I want to be able to say that I feel "balanced, connected, full of vitality, and at peace." While it's definitely difficult to feel "at peace" given what's happening in the United States right now (I can't even imagine what I would feel if I were a person of color, LGBTQ, Muslim, or undocumented), I'm trying to work on the "connected" part.
Matt and I are both introverted, so it feels easy to spend an entire weekend with just our little family. Yet at the same time, we enjoy other people and want to build deeper connections with our friends.
That's where "Sunday Supper" comes in. I shamelessly stole the idea from Friday Night Meatballs. I'm going to start with monthly, rather than weekly. We'll see if people come!
Here's what I'm thinking about serving:
- Black bean and corn tacos using this crockpot recipe, with corn and flour tortillas, cheese, sour cream, and cilantro.
- Guacamole, pico, and chips
- Spanish rice
I want the whole thing to feel very easy and stress-free, so that we are motivated to do it again!
