Into the Summer Light

 

Hello! Welcome back.

I have taken a bit of a break from blogging due a tumultuous few last months. I’ve been going through a lot, the worst of which was the loss of my baby pup bro-in-law. He was the most precious and innocent soul…he is with us forever….RIP Dusty. He has truly left a mark on our hearts.

I’m looking forward and onwards into summer. With time comes growth. I am trying a few different things to change my mindset and hopefully that will bear fruitful energy in the coming months.

Since I don’t have too much to say right now I’ll leave a recipe. Tonight I attempted lasagna for my first time. My mom makes my favorite lasagna, it’s so delish! This is one of the best things she makes, and there are many delish dishes she makes!! This recipe uses no boil pasta, and ground turkey (since we are South Asian we prefer to use this instead of beef, but any ground meat works!)
