1. This week, for me, has been a week of organizing. It is sad to say that we are in mid February and I'm still working on 2015 files, but the organizing takes place in the midst of the day to day things that must be done. Organization is a process and it is ever-changing to meet the needs of the right now. My happy place this week is adding a touch of color to my files with washi tape. Why not treat myself to cheery folders every time I open the drawer?
2. I get very bored with cooking the same old-same old, so I tried some new recipes this week. Monday, was the Giant Beef Empanada. It was pretty good but next time I think I will just fill the Empanada with my regular taco filling.
Hey, I'm no food photographer!
3. Next, I tried Chicken Tortilla Soup, which tasted amazingly similar to Santa Fe soup, a recipe I got from a blogger from FFF years ago. I can't remember if it was Carrie or Lisa? The main difference between the two was chicken or beef flavor. Either is good. I'm more often to have cooked chicken shredded up in my freezer and ready to go.
4. Of course, I had to try something sweet, so my next recipe to try were these tender little muffin bites: Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Mini Blender Muffins. (Wow, the name is a bigger mouthful than the muffin!)
This was fun to make but next time I will cook them 10 minutes instead of 9.
5. Quote of the Week:
He creates opportunities, chances, if you will, for things to happen. … Rachel Ann Ridge, “The God ofTime and Chance Is On Your Side.”
Excellent article. You should go read it!
And so ends another week on the Journey.
How did YOUR week go?
