We got home yesterday from a wonderful trip to Edisto Beach, SC with my mom, dad, brother, sis-in-law and my sweet niece. It was the metaphorical breath of fresh air I needed and we lucked out with perfect weather. I’m still sorting through pictures, but plan to share some soon (I can hear your excited squeals through the screen, ha).
Despite being a fabulous getaway, both girls were a little run down yesterday. I’m hoping it’s just a mild case of too much vacation and we’ll see how everyone is doing today after a good night’s sleep.
Since Edisto is only 4ish hours from home, it was great to get back yesterday around 1. Though we were all ready to plop down on the couch, David and I rallied to really get things back in order. We tackled the unpacking and laundry, he cut the grass and changed the house air filters, and I grocery shopped.
Our line up for the week looks like this–
Sunday- Salmon, Asparagus and Sliced Tomatoes
Monday- Grilled Mahi Tacos with Pineapple Mango Salsa
Tuesday- Chicken Enchiladas
Wednesday- Mom’s Meat Spaghetti Sauce over Noodles with Salad
The boss lady is always on my back around here.
I made David some freezer breakfast sandwiches with fresh sausage patties.
After all, it’s important to know your spouse’s love language.
I also prepped some layered salad jars with wheat berries and quinoa inspired by Angela’s recipe.
But I ended up cheating and using this delicious pre-made dressing I picked up, which will double for our mahi mahi marinade for fish taco night. Meal planning win.
The Mediterranean Salmon in Parchment with brown rice and olives from the seafood counter was on point. It is now on my short list to recreate because it was incredible!
Now I really feel like summer is beginning, though I know we have three weeks until it’s really here. Still, preschool is out and the temps are hot- bring on the summertime fun!
What helps you feel back on track after vacation?
For me, it’s definitely having food in the house and laundry done!
