Aaaaaaaaand moving on.
I appreciate all y’alls support more than you know and value each one of your opinions. Thank you so much for the notes, encouragement and advice. I’m incredibly blessed and thankful to be doing what I do and I couldn’t do it without y’all.
I decided to put my stress into something delicious and made my first real meal in my new kitchen last night! It worked out well because the boy had to work all day and I promised him a delicious dinner when he was done. What was on the menu? Maple and mustard glazed salmon, mushroom risotto and roasted broccoli with sea salt, olive oil and lemon zest. I think he liked it. 😉
Who needs a table when you have a blanket and a candle?
Hers on the left, his on the right. Mmm risotto!
Everything was pretty simple. For the salmon, I just brushed a glaze of whole grain mustard, maple syrup and a tbsp of brown sugar on and then baked at 350 for 20 minutes. So simple but delicious. Now the risotto, on the other hand, was a little more time consuming but completely worth it. I’d have to say if someone asked me what my favorite thing to cook is, I would tell them risotto. It’s so calming and centering because for 45 minutes your only task is to stir the grains of rice. I’ve had many life epiphanies while stirring the risotto pot and last night I calmed myself down by listening to a sermon online and just stir, stir, stirring.
And then today the time finally came to move my bed. I was a little worried because of past events. Clearly I have a past history of hurting myself right before athletic events. No big deal. However, I’m here to tell you today that the move went fine and there are no injuries to speak of. 25 miles and three flights of stairs later and we are good to go. It feels so good to be finally “all here” although I still have to go back to the old place next week and clean out the freezer.
We carbo-loaded for the move by eating Mexican food, the natural choice.
Mine was the burrito on the left….it was a veggie burrito without any cheese or sour cream…the same thing I always get from Guadalajara. The flavors are amazing!
There are cabbage and carrots in there as well! I ate everything out of the burrito and left the tortilla behind.
