Wowwee things have been crazy. Still unpacking and trying to find a flow to our new house! Joel is still in West Virginia finishing up his residency so its slow going as the girls and I try to navigate the new house ourselves. The move itself was crazy. The packers came late, stayed super late (smoke breaks every hour can really cut into your day) , and ran out of boxes. The moving truck came the next day and, of course, didn’t have enough room on it (due to there being 3 other households and a car already on it). So my things got split into two shipments, the first already delivered but the second doesn’t arrive until the 20th! I guess that gives me time to put the first half of my belongings away first…? Then follow that craziness up with a 2 day trip across the country with my in-laws, 2 girls and 2 dogs (thank goodness Joel’s parents came to help me drive because I would NOT have survived that trip by myself!).

This dinner was a great meal for summer – its fast and easy to make, and delicious, too! I loved the combination of the sweet apple, sausage and spinach! Plus it makes a TON so you have lots of leftovers!
