Meal Planning Mondays: Grooms and such.

Rae here!

Busy meal planning, grocery shopping, and unpacking from a trip back to NV to attend a dear friend's wedding. Tyler was in the wedding party, and hot ddddayumn. The man looks so good in a tux. I was in full swoon all evening just looking at him. Such a real man, ya know? Gimme some a' DAT!

That's my groom, was all I could keep thinking.  Eleven years. It's getting harder to even talk about this as the years go by. I keep dissolving into a puddle of tears when I think of it: how much he means to me, how much I enjoy his companionship, how grateful I am that he is so committed, so thoughtful, so supportive. Eleven years by my side is no cake-walk, people! I've gotten progressively more insane as life continues to take its toll, and yet he remains the calm to my storm and the life to our little party. I love him so. He is my life's greatest gift.

I'm going to stop crying at my laptop now and instead post pictures of zucchini soup.

You have a happy Monday!

1. Silky Zucchini Soup. Rich, DELICIOUS, healthy!

3. Cucumber Salad with Edamame, sesame, and miso. Another great spin on your salad routine. Also, get a spiralizer if you don't have one, it will change your life! Serve it alongside your pork tenderloin.

4. So, I was chatting with a pear the other day, and it was like you know whatpumpkin thinks it is such hot sh*t right now. And I was like, yes. So I DEDICATE THIS TO YOU, under-appreciated Autumn pear. Cinnamon Pear Cake. (I substitute real whipped cream topping. None of that cool-whip nonsense.)

E.U.C. Droppin like it's HOT.

do you remember when you used to purchase actual CDs?

are they still sold in stores?

who does that anymore? really, wasn't the whole CD purchasing thing a brief window of time, lasting an approximate 3 weeks before the smart kid in your school learned how to burn songs on a computer? then, you just paid him a few bucks for your custom pirated playlist you'd inevitably have to hide from your parents? anywayzzz.

this just occurred to me: i'm old.

i snapped these pictures last week. on a standard issue, hot and sticky afternoon day.

and decided that if CD's were still a thing, this photo spread would represent the haack ladies' album of 2015.

below, the cover:

their band name?


emotionally unstable comedians.

or, E.E.U.C.

EXTREMELY emotionally unstable comedians.

Top hits would include:

1. She hit me first.
2. You DO NOT understand MY life.
3. Emerson did it.
4. Listen, fool, I ain't goin' to bed.
5. BUT!....
6. THAT'S IT. I'm running away.

these are my kids.

i am so glad these are my kids.
