In Mama Gena’s School of Womanly Arts, Regena Thomashauer instructs us to brag because
Bragging about the goodness in your life, especially your pleasurable accomplishments, unearths your desires and fans the flames of desire in other women.
So my brag is how FREAKING AWESOME our lunches were this week. Chicken fried steak, spinach enchiladas with cilantro cream sauce, beef stroganoff, and pizza, all homemade from whole (and in most cases local) ingredients! (Full disclosure: the beef stroganoff was more like stew with noodles because I tried subbing a homemade/bpa-free version of Campbell’s Golden Mushroom soup that wasn’t condensed enough, but it was still good). Hubs and I have never eaten so well, and I am so proud of us, both because we’re eating whole foods and because of what it has meant for our budget. (We ate out a lot on the weekends before because it felt like so much work to me to cook. Saturday nights now mean amazing homecooking from local ingredients and I love how we have both embraced it). Wooooiiieeeeeeee!
