Get out of that same ol’ recipe rut and try one of these delicious and easy recipes this week! This week I highly recommend making the Crunchy Asian Hoisin Chicken over Brown Rice and the Spinach & Artichoke Crispy Skillet Pan Pizza with optional Garlic Butter Herb Shrimp!
“There’s no place like home. There’s no place like home.” Seriously I feel like Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz after these past 2 weeks. Folks when I say I now know what hell is truly like, believe me. I have never, in my life, been as sick as I was for 3 weeks with a severe upper respiratory infection and bronchitis. But what made it a bajillion times worse is that I had to travel for 2 of those weeks. The first week I had to stay in a hotel up at my office for the first week as we had a 5-day long summit which required us to be there a good 12 hours a day. And since I live about 1.5-2 hours away with traffic I was truly unable to drive the distance so I had to pay for a hotel. No, work didn’t pay for it. Let’s not go there as that’s a very, VERY touchy spot. I did it for my own safety. I then got home on a Friday night only to have to scramble, while on my 2nd round of meds and being forced by the doctor to have chest x-rays to see if I had pneumonia (good news I didn’t), to pack and try to make Mr. Fantabulous (who was still sick himself) food for the week as I had to fly out to San Diego butt-early (technical time) Sunday morning for the week.
I. AM. EXHAUSTED. Physically. Mentally. Emotionally. I’m just done. These past 2 weeks honestly pushed me to my breaking point. It got so bad that literally a few nights while out in Cali I called Mr. Fantabulous in tears. Work just broke me. Like my spirit is broken.
Thing is, I’m not one to really get down or even depressed really. But right now I just feel disconnected if that makes sense. I think it’s at the point where everything is just getting to me. The house still isn’t done. It’s like one thing after the other after the other is preventing us from our goal of getting it on the market this April. Maybe it’s possessed? LOL
Do you believe in ghosts? I do. I fully believe that the house I grew up in was haunted. It was a 100+ year old farm house and the local library had some old articles about the house and “strange happenings”.
Sigh… sorry I’m such a downer guys. I’m rarely like this it’s just I feel that I’m at a point in my life/career that I need to make some hard decisions. Kind of at some sort of crossroads. But as long as I have Mr. Fantabulous then there is nothing we can’t tackle together, right? Love is truly the most powerful thing there is.
Anyway I’m home now and trying to get over this jet lag. Man that west coast to east coast flight back is just rough. I’d like to share a bajillion pictures with you from California but honestly all I did was work, work and work more. One of these times when I’m out in San Diego I’m going to go see their zoo. Every time I mention it folks are like “did you go to the zoo yet??” lol Guess it’s a pretty big deal?
So I do have super exciting news about the new website design. We’re almost finalized with the design aspect of it as well as working on how the new recipe index and categories should be structured. Yes… RECIPE INDEX! I’m so excited about this! FINALLY a real recipe index that is visually appealing and easy to find what you’re looking for. Plus we’re introducing some new features that other blogs don’t have which I’m really excited about. Also once I get the final proofs for the logos (yes there will be a pig in the mix) I can start setting up my shop for t-shirts, aprons, towels, kitchen utensils – the works!
Instagram these past 2 weeks have been pretty quiet as I have been super sick and I really didn’t cook at all. However I could really use your help on something. I came home and my Lucky Bamboo isn’t looking so lucky at all. The top leaves are turning yellow. I trimmed them back, pulled the plants out of the rocks/gravel/water and cleaned them all. Plus I put them in new water but I have no clue how to save this. Any suggestions? I’ve read that you put it in water, others say you don’t. I need a Plant Whisperer/Plant Expert/Someone with a green thumb to help me out here.
How can I save my baby?
Today is a busy day as we’re going to our accountants as our company taxes need done early. And then we’re stopping at the Fantabulous in-laws for a few to say hi which means we’ll be there all day. LOL I don’t mind as I love them both so dearly.
Okay guys I need to get my butt in gear and get on the road. Have a fantabulous week and look for more amazing recipes this week!
