Happy Hump Day!  Here are a few delightful tidbits to get you through today and on to the weekend.

Funnies – Actually this is sort of heartbreaking and funny all at once.

Fashion – I got a Stitch Fix box today!  YAH!  You can read about my last box HERE.

Clockwise from the top left:

Chevron Dress - This little gem had a lot going for it.  I love the color and print and the fabric felt wonderful.  After trying it on, however, it became clear that this was not for me.  Nope.

Navy Blue Skinny Jean – Stitch Fix has been hitting it out of the park with pants for me lately.  These are a good fit, nice fabric and basic navy makes them a staple.

Color Block Top – The fact that this is color block and neutral would make it seem like a keeper but it was a little too boxy and going into winter I didn’t think I needed it.

Dolman Sleeve Sweater – This is a lightweight sweater-ish type of shirt.  The fit is flattering and color is pretty.  I’m on the fence about this one.

I also received a leopard print pencil skirt.  I already own one of these so I popped it right in the return envelope.

Food:  Monday’s nice weather gave way to a cold and rainy evening spent following my golfer around the golf course.  I was trying to sneak out early when I realized the keys were locked in the minivan.  Guess I was staying all the way to the bitter end.  Come 8:00 it was getting dark, we were freezing cold and this set the stage perfectly for a comfort food supper of Cassoulet and Tastfully Simple Bountiful Beer bread made with Sprite.

This recipe is one my mom made frequently when we were growing up.  I have modified it a bit so that it’s easier to make.  You’re welcome!

Cassoulet

one jar of Great Northern beans (with juice)

one package of diced ham

some diced onion (I just put some in – whatever looks good to you)

one pound of Bob Evans sausage, cooked

a sprinkle of parsley

I put the ingredients in the crock pot long enough to get them warm and to let the flavors mix.  If you need it quick, put it on a higher setting or leave it on longer at a low setting if you have the time.

This is FAB as leftovers also!

Faith: We know that I love learning and I especially enjoy reading the Bible and learning more about it in the context of a class with other women.  It’s a beautiful thing when we can come together and share our experiences with life and God and each other.  This is the next study we are diving into at church.  I can’t wait!

Have you done a good Bible study recently?  What was it?
