I awoke this morning with a churning of excitement in my belly.
Is it wrong to feel so happy?
So excited about life?
I may be in violation of a town ordinance or two.
This picture just delights me to no end.
No matter how often I look at it, it just makes me giggle inside so much - those little legs, oh my!
I broke down and made a list today.
I know - I'm disappointed too.
It's not a ridiculous list, but just a list to remind me of all of the odds and ends that I really need to do - it's going to be a lovely, full, happy week!
The temps here in Indiana have been oppressive.
A string of four days at 100 degrees.
I feared my chickens would roast on the roost.
Two things before I depart -
I wanted to share this recipe with you - and share a decision that I've made.
Since I have been yammering on so about weight loss, life transformation, etc...I know many of you may just not be interested, and yet, I feel that it's SO important and it helps me to yammer - and I just truly am beginning to feel that maybe it's what I was intended to do - reach out to others and help them change their lives for the better - and I do hanker to yammer on about it....so....
I'm going to post my weight loss, body transformations on the Leanness Lifestyle blog that I have over there -------->
I think that might be better, don't you?
OK - onward.
I made this recipe the other night, and dad gum it, I'm making it again tonight.
I found it fresh, tasty, easy - and the house smelled amazing the entire time it was cooking.
What more could you ask for?
Even though I eat SO differently now, I truly still love to cook.
It's been a real journey finding the balance in all of it.
A few tweaks I made -
I cut the oil in half and found it plenty.
After cooking the chicken for the 50 minutes it recommends, I took the chicken out, put foil over the cast iron skillet and cooked the beans and potatoes for at least another 20 minutes, instead of the 10 they advise. I'm not a fan of a tough, hard bean.
Today I'm making it with boneless breasts.
Happy Monday my friends!
