Monday … taco chicken!

Tuesday… Black bean burritoes!

Wednesday… Quesadillas!

Thursday… chicken & rice

Friday… pizza.

We pretty much had quesadillas half the nights last week. Emelia has become the #1 quesadilla maker around here. I need to go buy more cheese and stuff for them soon. The black bean burritoes were so good I am going to make a bigger batch and freeze some for later. They will be great for healthy snacks and quick lunches.

There’s been some questions about how we came to get the horse “Pinky,” for FREE! Well, around the fourth of July there he was on our property. There are acreages behind us, sometimes we will have a few cows out there and then they are gone… I thought maybe the horse was spooked from the fireworks. Matt said, “Jesus brought you a pony.” On Wednesday as we were leaving for church we noticed a car driving slowly in front of our house. Mom called (she was here with Iz) and said that a man had come about his horse. We talked on the phone and he mentioned that he had a stud that was twice Pinky’s size that was biting Pinky so he was looking for a new home for him and that that was probably the reason Pinky had run away. I told him we would love to keep him so he said, “he’s yours!” He said he would bring his bridle and stuff over and leave it on the fence sometime but hasn’t yet. We went and bought him a bridle, pull rope, feed, feeding bucket, brush and scoop etc… Emelia has been with me for all these purchases and because we have recently remodeled her room all pink she of course wanted all horse supplies to be pink. That’s how the horse got his name. Yes, it’s a little odd to have a brown boy horse named Pinky, but oh well! It works. The kids have ridden him once. Bareback. We haven’t bought a saddle yet. I guess that’s next. He is nice and calm. The goats must think he is a big dog because they pretty much run from him. I think eventually they’ll all be great friends.

Sounds like a yummy week! How nice of the guy to just give you the horse. I like Matt’s response better tho… “Jesus brought you a pony”! I didn’t know you had goats tho.
