A long time coming

You know...its been awhile since I've taken the time to do I mean. I've told myself I'm just too busy to do anything like this. So today, I put the teacher books away early (at 5 PM!) and just relaxed. That's a new word in my vocabulary as of late.

This week I've tried a few new things...sadly I don't have pictures to show it! I tried 3 new recipes this week!

1. My friend Christina and I made dinner together on Monday night. Whole grain pasta with chicken, sun dried tomatoes, feta cheese, and slivered almonds. D-E-L-ICIOUS. I bought bread and made a dipping sauce too! For dessert we made angel food cake and had fresh strawberries with a touch of whip cream (perhaps more than a touch...) :)

2. I made gaucamole yesterday for the first time ever. People that are good cooks are probably thinking, "only a rookie would write about that..." but that's EXACTLY what I am! A rookie!! So you get to read about it! I learned how to pit an avocado and use all the avocado! It was amazing!! It was so pretty and green! (Many don't know that I'm obsessed with green!!) And for the first time around, it didn't taste too bad.

3. Today I made acorn squash!! I've never had it in my life. Some friends at church gave it to me to try. It was F-A-N-TASTIC! For real. I just sliced it in half, and put it in the oven for about 40 minutes. Then buttered it up some and put it back in the oven. Simple enough, but simply divine! For real. Wow! Wow! Wow!

I'm learning to take time for myself right now. And learning to trust my Lord and Best Friend for my future...and that's a good lesson to learn.
