Not too many people enjoy eating the same dishes over and over and over again-especially me. So what is a girl to do? I sought out some recipes to help expand my cooking skills and meal variety. Eating out gets expensive quickly and adds to my waste line far too fast (I swim for overall benefits but also to help trim down and be more curvy!)
I purchased a jar of Thai sauce, claiming to be good for dipping and cooking and found a recipe that could use it.
2 large chicken breasts, chopped and cooked in olive oil
1 medium sized onion, chunky chopped
2 dried red spicy peppers crushed up
1 small bag of frozen brocoli florets
2 Tablespoons of Thai Peanut sauace
1/4 cup slided almonds
salt and peppper
Cook the chicken in the oil, add all the other ingredients and let simmer for 20 minutes on medium low heat. Serve! Serves 3-4 people. So Yummy!
Spring has sprung! The calender states that today is the first day of spring but here in the Southeast, it has already been coming in heavy and strong, the trees are alreadying budding and leafing out and the pollen levels are so high already.
I helped a friend do some yard work today. Their dog, whom was “supervising” fell asleep on the job; Frisky the dog is also quite the comedian.
My friend and I went to a plant store to pick up some items and I couldn’t help but daydream of owning my own place one day and selecting an assortment of roots, bulbs, plants and other items that I would love to put into my very own yard.
I did plant some seeds in a pot at my own apartment about 10 days ago and they are already germinating and sprouting.
Fa-la-la-la-la-de-dah! Christmas bells are ringing!

The blessings continue to flow here in Scotland as I have made some wonderful friends along my journey. It isn’t always about what you are seeing, it is about whom comes into your life and leaves a happy mark on your heart that creates the best experiences; may the memories and friendships continue to bloom.
I was so very blessed to get to spend a whole day touring the childhood and adulthood home (for a while) of Hugh Miller, geologist, reformer, stone mason and Scots. Truly an amazing experience!! I used my National Trust for Scotland pass to tour it, which is awesome.
A Small, quaint town in the heart of the Black Forrest, Thomas and I stopped at the Guesthause Hirch for a wonderful german meal, the church bells rang, and the service was nice, the food superb. A town that one can easily relax in and fully enjoy!!! A place to get a breath of fresh air and enjoy the day. It is also easily accessible, not far from Baden Baden
A twist on a classic of Beer and Pizza night, Thomas and I enjoyed an evening out at Zum Hoepfner Pub in Ittersbach with Pilsners and Flammkuchen–Lecker!!! Lots of laughter and good times, listening to the tunes playing, chatter of fellow pub patrons, and enjoying a fun evening out.
