We have been painting the exterior of the house over the past week and by “we”, I mean Mr. Wonderful has been doing all the hard stuff and I’ve been painting the front and back doors.
It’s getting dark so early here, we barely have time to get any of it done each night before the moon rises. My photo pictures are suffering as well and while I totally prefer to take natural sunlight photos, I am going to have to get my artificial lighting kit out of the coat closet. You’ll see how my pictures are suffering in the food photos as you read.
Anyway, our house was formerly a sage green with a red door.
And we wanted to update it a little and have a change of colors.
So far we’ve changed the sage to a lighter cream, which we thought would be a tad darker but we love how bright the porch is now.
Mr. Wonderful still has to paint the eaves and trim an even lighter cream to offset them but I think it’s shaping up quite nicely.
I do miss my red door a little.
Thursday nights at our house get a little more attention for some reason than the rest of the week. For some reason, the earlier part of the week is crazy-busy and since it’s just the two of us now, we dine on leftovers, because at some point I made way too much of something because….
Well I haven’t learned to adjust to the two of us yet I suppose.
Last night’s dinner satisfied my never-ending Thai craving. I tossed some jumbo shrimp with some red curry paste and grilled it in my iron skillet in a little coconut oil.
Then I sliced up kale, cucumbers, Thai basil, green onions and a red pepper from our garden (which amazingly is still producing like a champ!) along with some carrots and cilantro. I tossed some quinoa into the rice cooker with some coconut milk and lime and whipped up a Thai-inspired vinaigrette to drizzle over it all.
The result was a nourishing and delicious bowl of goodness that we took out to the living room to eat while watching a Duck Dynasty marathon.
The two didn’t really go well together- we probably should have been eating squirrel or something, but nonetheless….
We thoroughly enjoyed it!
