Tuesday Things

1) I had a great time at my friend Mel's bridal shower on Sunday.  It was fun to get together with friends I have had for 20 + years.

I am second from the left, and the beautiful bride-to-be is second from the right.
2) Tried a new restaurant the other day ... Jamdon's Restaurant & Catering.  It is an authentic Jamaican buffet, low key atmosphere with a good selection.  I would prefer it if it were not buffet, but the food is pretty good, and the hubby left very happy.

3) One of the greatest smells in the world is chicken stock simmering on the stove (there is a chicken under there somewhere).  The chicken comes out so moist, and is great for use in the soup, and in sandwiches.

4) Chicken sandwiches are best on soft bread with mayo.  Serve with a green monster to get your veggies in.  I put spinach, 1/2 banana, 1 tsp cocoa, 1 scoop wheat grass and almond milk into mine.


5) Valentine's may be over but I am still loving the pink!  Out with the black, I am all about colour this year!


6) I am on holidays this week and bought 6 different kinds of flour today.  Things are going to be happening in the kitchen ...

What do you have going on this week?

I've never had Jamaican food, but I'd love to try it. This week, I'm working on a possibly phenomenal writing opportunity. I'm nervous AND excited, to say the least.

Today is my last day of work for the week! I'm going to do a lot of cleaning, running errands, and exercising but I also plan to cook some things and relax a bit.
Enjoy your holidays!

I need to get on making my own chicken stock. By the time I do that it'll probably be spring!

Chicken stock DOES smell amazing. i made it for the first time around Christmas and was blown away by a) how good it tasted and b) how easy it was to make!

6 different kinds of flour? Wow! Can't wait to see what you are making!
