Healing salty water - Salt Springs
Salt Springs, one of our new favorites for boating.

My lingering "yuk"{illness} has gone and I'm challenging myself to cook sides and extras out of my pantry this week.  I so have to clean and organize that space!  Seriously, it's bad ya'll,. 
One benefit of having a full pantry though is the fact that I'll save some cashola this week at the grocery store.  I didn't shop last week at all and this week will be minimal with only some meat and lunch items going in the basket.  Since most of my bills are due at this time of the month my extra "deals" and shopping problem at the grocery store will work in my favor.  Now what we have each night might seem a little mismatched but I don't really care....I just want to be able to see a shelf and not worry about falling cans in my pantry.

Here in Florida, summertime has hit us like a ton of bricks.  So my wish for everyone this week is to stay cool and not sweat.  Happy, happy ;o)
