Sometimes, you’ve got to be flexible.
Things have been really crazy around my house lately: first, we moved into our new house, then there was travelling, activities, and, of course, all the fixing and other chores that come with home ownership. Now we’re pretty settled, but to add a little extra chaos to life, I had a birthday/Halloween party over the weekend. That was all fine & good, but there was one problem: for the Secret Recipe Club post, I had originally planned on making Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Sandwiches, but proceeded to get such a sugar high at the party, I couldn’t bring myself to make/eat more sweets. I know: life is hard. However, the blog we were assigned, Fran’s Favs, has so many wonderful savory-type dishes, it was just what the doctor ordered. So, instead of pushing myself that much closer to diabetes, I decided to make Beef Barley Soup, and it was perfect for the cold, rainy weather we’ve been having!
