Char's ears ... I have quite an update for you. We had her consult yesterday with the ENT (she's on her 4th round of antibiotics now), and he said her ears are completely clear. Completely clear. And just to keep an eye on them for the time being and not worry about scheduling the tubes. Y'all, I seriously thought yesterday's appointment was merely to discuss the surgery date/specifics and sign anesthesia paperwork. I had NO idea that we may be getting the all-clear to just monitor her. Ian and I left the appointment practically skipping, we were so happy. Here's hoping her ears stay clear from here on out! Thanks to everyone for the prayers and well-wishes!

I made the most delicious chimichurri sauce last night for our skirt steak. Camille was my little sous-shef and we actually made it right in my baby food maker which is quite hilarious but efficient. Camille loves to help these days -- adding in the cilantro, pouring in the red wine vinegar with my assistance. I used this recipe and halved the olive oil and subbed in extra cilantro for the parsley I didn't have on hand. I served the sauce over skirt steak (delicious, from Aldi!) with sauteed peppers, black beans, and avocado slices. It was really tasty.
I think this sauce can be used so many ways -- drizzled over grilled chicken, quesadillas, a dip for veggies, you name it!

I mentioned at the beginning of the week that I was going to commit this entire week to using the Beautycounter products that my friend gave me. I have really been enjoying them! The Nourishing line to me feels very softening and not harsh at all. Just like it's really hydrating my skin, not taking anything away from it. I also have a sample of their charcoal soap she gave me that I like using along with my Clarisonic brush. So, for any of you who may be curious about the line, I have to say that I am a fan!
Great, great wine rec to pass along to you if you like New Zealand sauv blancs like I do! This one is from Aldi and is just $6.99. It seriously tastes amazing ... I am going to pick up several bottles next trip!
