Last week I picked up a new cookbook at my local Scholastic Warehouse Book Sale. Have any of you been to one of these? It’s a book lovers paradise, a warehouse filled with rows and rows of books of all kinds – all 50% off. Yes, this book nerd finds this extremely exciting.
Not only was I excited about the overwhelming amount of books in general, but I got pretty happy when I stumbled into the cookbook section. I had been eying this cookbook from The Mom 100 ever since it was featured on #SundaySupper a few months back. After having it in my hands for a few days already, I have to tell you – I’m glad I picked it up.
I made this for the kids and myself while my husband was away on business last week. I don’t usually cook up anything outside of our few ‘regular’ meals when it’s just the three of us, but I had been craving these sesame noodles since I laid eyes on them – and I was keeping my fingers crossed that the kids would eat them too.
Happy to report: we slurped them right up. Kale, edamame and all. My daughter even requested I pack them for her lunch the next day. Total winner!
I think it goes without saying that all of our hearts are hurting for the Newtown community right now. There’s not much I can write or say that you aren’t feeling or thinking.
Do something nice for your family today. Cook them a good meal or put away their laundry with a happy heart. Smile at a stranger. Make eye contact and nod at the runner passing you on the trail. Say good morning to the cashier who’s probably over dealing with the general public this time of year. Make sure your children’s teachers know that you appreciate them. Acknowledge and thank everyone in your “village”.
Do something – anything – for another person that leaves them feeling just a tiny bit better. I truly truly believe that kindness is contagious. And that makes me feel better.
That’s all I’ve got. Have a great week friends, I appreciate you stopping by.
