Tahini Sesame Dressing & an Update

Oh I have missed this little blog! Halloween was my last cookie push which means I am officially on maternity leave WOOHOO!! I am SO looking forward to posting some recent recipes we’ve loved and doing lots of nesting. We are getting so close to Bowen V’s arrival and I cannot wait. 


My precious Bowen took me on a surprise mini moon to the beach this past weekend. We had high temps and no crowds-I think the last weekend of October is THE time to go to the beach:) 



I had the best run I’ve had in a while on Sunday. I made it 4 miles without any walk breaks just a couple stops for water, overall I am feeling surprisingly good-much better than a couple months ago bless the Lord. This baby boy has REALLY popped out. I don’t know where he will fit but I trust he’ll keep on growing and I’ll keep making room 😉


32 WEEKS!! ⇑

A friend gave me this book, Anything and I could NOT put it down. It’s so good and such a reminder of how often I (we) get caught in seeking out comfort and joy in the things of this world which for me are counterfeit glories and empty pursuits compared to being found in Christ alone, being surrendered to His purposes for my life. Here’s a peek at the premise of this book:

” Safe. Comfortable. Happy.

Words we all love. Feelings we want. Even crave. We may love God, but being that he’s invisible, words like comfortable seem to feel better faster.

We are all chasing something. Our hearts were made to run hard and fast after things that move us. But as a generation we are all beginning to stir and wake up, identifying that these words don’t satisfy for long, especially when compared to God. If God is real, and we are going to live with Him forever, shouldn’t He be everything?

Caught in this familiar haze of worldly happiness and empty pursuits, Jennie Allen and her husband Zac prayed a courageous prayer of abandonment that took them on an adventure God had written for them.

“God, we will do anything. Anything,

Anything is a prayer of surrender that will spark something. A prayer that will move us to stop chasing things that just make us feel happy and start living a life that matters. A life that is…

Surrendered. Reckless. Courageous.

If we truly know a God worth giving anything for, everything changes.”



Back to the foodie portion of MS-Made, I think the theme of this blog is about to take a shift to more efficient meals. With Bowen now being home for breakfast, lunch and dinner the cooking game has changed at our house.


I am really focusing on stretching meals and making suppers that double as great lunches or second night leftovers. I made taco salads last night and while I was cooking deciding to stuff peppers for tonight’s supper-hoping to get that recipe up soon! 


For now I’ll leave you with a quick, healthy lunch I had today. I don’t know about you but sometimes I need a new salad dressing to get me excited for my greens. I love this sesame tahini dressing-it’s creamy, savory and a delicious dressing for all your favorite veggies.
