Blue Apron: Beef on Weck Sandwiches with Heirloom Potato Salad

Earlier this month, my husband and I enjoyed several delicious Blue Apron meals. The Beef on Weck Sandwich and Heirloom Potato Salad had to be our all time favorite!

The tartness from the whole grain ground mustard and sherry vinegar, in the salad dressing, on the heirloom potatoes was amazing! And the horseradish-spiced mayonnaise and peppery arugula on the Beef on Weck Sandwiches had us humming, in delight.

I would definitely attempt to make this meal again.

Friday Dinner: Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Follow Up: This Slow Cooker Turkey Breast was so good! It was juicy and well seasoned. I even made a gravy from the drippings.

For Sunday dinner, I made Open-Faced Turkey and Gravy sandwiches
!

When our son saw the size of the turkey breast he suggested I use the crockpot. Funny thing is I was thinking the same thing!

Using the Slow Cooker Turkey Breast recipe at Taste of Home and adding some fresh rosemary sprigs has the house smelling like Christmas!

What's Your Favorite Christmas Movies?

My all-time favorite Christmas movie is "The Preacher's Wife", starring Whitney Houston and Denzel Washington. Besides being a beautiful story, several of the scenes were shot in my hometown, of Portland, Maine! It was wonderful to see so many of the familiar locations. The story and scenes brought me to tears!

Gwynnie Bee: BB Dakota Neeve Vest

When I saw the BB Dakota Neeve Vest on Gwynnie Bee, I knew I had to add it to my virutal closet ASAP! Temperatures are just right for this item. It kept me looking fashionable and warm while enjoying a cup of tea outside.

I think one could get plenty of looks. Just pair it with with a light neutral top, jeans, pencil skirt, leggings. And don't forget your favorite boots!

Yes! Even 50 plus ladies, like me, can find pieces that will look terrific on them.

This Xtwo Vance Black Jacket is perfect for winter in Las Vegas. Just add a scarf and fun purse and you're ready for conquer your To-Do List!

Christmas In The BerryMorin House

Major Depression..."Hear It Roar"!

Without going into details, my husband and I have been dealing with a family crisis that has been very crushing. Along with that, my Major Depression decided to advise me that it's time to be heard!

I woke up to overwhelming dark, cold and crashing waves that keep one treading, gasping for every breath. I had to remind myself that this feeling would pass but it helped to speak with my therapist and counselor, take my prescriptions, continue to eat healthy and pray daily.

Remembering to not be distance, my husband and I talked, cried and hugged each other tightly.

We're going to be fine. I'm going to be fine. There is light at the end of the tunnel.
