Breakthrough


It’s 7:32 a.m. Friday and I’m sitting in my bed thinking of what my day will bring me and trying to decide what to do next. I just read through a slew of life blogs and I gotta say there are so many posts that I can relate to. Moving forward, forgetting the past, enjoying the moment, loving the life I have now, are all of the same thoughts that run through my mind everyday. I just need to follow through and act on some of those thoughts. Sometimes I think I have a major chemical imbalance that permits me to do so. As of late, I don’t feel like I make the most of my life which leads me to believe that since I’ve stumbled upon and signed up with WordPress it has been my serendipity. My eyes are open, the weight I feel that is lying on my chest, in my heart, and holding me down is starting now lifted. It’s all in the way you think. Positive attitude and positive thoughts = positive changes. Goodbye excuses and fictitious chemical imbalance, hello perseverance.

Almost there..


While I was making my farm fresh cilantro salsa tonight, I was doing a little thinking about why I have so many problems following through on my blogs. I have a fear of expressing myself. I know what I want to say but I’m just afraid to say it. I think it boils down to my past and the people who were in it. I’m not going down that road  right now and I’m not sure I ever will, but at least I can recognize where all my insecurities might be stemming from.

Anyway, I have a ton of ideas and thoughts I want to put out there and overtime I guess I’ll do just that. One thing I have to keep in mind is that it’s not that difficult to do what I want to do in life. The only person stopping me is me. I love reading other people’s blogs and one thing I’ve noticed is that people, like myself, start blogs, post something here and there and then do nothing else. I don’t necessarily want to make money from my blog but hey if I do that, it would be great. The whole point of my blog is saying what I feel at any given time and about anything I want. I guess that’s what blogging is all about.

Fresh cilantro salsa…yumm


I just made a salsa recipe I had seen on the web. I tweaked it a little bit so can I guess I consider it my own recipe? Well hot dog isn’t that awesome.  I will call it farm fresh cilantro salsa, only because I used everything straight from the Farmers Market that I went to today.  I have to say I’m pretty proud of myself.

~ 4 medium ripe tomatoes

~ 2 hot chili peppers

~ 1 small sweet onion

~ 2 garlic cloves

~ 3 tbsp of fresh cilantro

~ 3 tbsp of lime juice

~ 1 tbsp of sugar

~ salt and pepper to taste

Mince onion and garlic and mix together in a small bowl. Boil 1/2 cup of water and add onion and garlic. Remove from heat and let simmer 3 minutes. Drain well.

Add together remaining ingredients and mix. Chill for approximately 2 to 3 hours to let juices set in.

                               

Grilled chicken and broccoli with alfredo sauce


Okay, so here it is but not back by popular demand haha. Here is my broccoli and grilled chicken with homemade alfredo sauce. Following the recipe for the alfredo sauce listed in Sauces and Gravies, and just add broccoli and grilled chicken. Sometimes I like to change it up with California blend vegetables also.

Another special added touch I love to do in the fall and winter months is make the recipe as is and bake in the oven at 375° for about 30 to 35 minutes with a 1 1/2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese on top. It turns it into a great baked casserole dish.
