Delicious noms

Last night's dinner was delicious enough that I had to share - we went a little on the special side, away from our usual sauté up some meat and a bunch of veggies and served with roasted sweet potatoes.

We made cilantro line turkey "tips" and topped it with my homemade mango/avocado/tomato/onion salsa! Served it with sautéed broccoli with a touch of soy sauce!

It was amazing, filled me right up, left me beyond satisfied. I love filling up a dinner with a ton of different flavors, coming from different types of vegetables and different spices and things. The flavor burst makes sure I never miss junk food for dinner again!


Big day for me- going to try to make up for the missed lecture from the snow day last week, fit in two lectures today if I can. Then I have an interview! I decided to see if I can be a substitute teacher for the county, based on many people's recommendations that I at least give it a shot.

Interviews are scary, new jobs are scary, changing your life is scary. I'm a little scared :)

But forging on ahead!!! Hoping for the best. Life doesn't change if you don't do something to change it. I'll be poor till May if I don't put myself out there.

Wish me luck!

Namaste <3


  1. Looks yummy! I tried the Brussels sprout dish you posted a few days ago (added mushrooms, too) and it was a hit, the whole family loved it so I've made it an official side dish, which means we'll probably have it about once a week.

  2. Scary…but exciting at the same time! We've got to learn to embrace change and take risks. I find those often turn out to bring the most rewarding results in the end.

  3. looks delicious! We have a big turkey we are gonna cook in the next couple of weeks; will try to remember this recipe.

    good luck on the interview!!! I know you will rock it! :)

  4. I'm sure the school district will love you, and more importantly I think you will love substitute teaching! There are days now when my students drive me crazy and I actually miss being a substitute lol.

  5. Mmmm tasty food, so much better than junk :) About change, yes it is scary. When I had to make a big scar decision in my life one Stu bought me the book "Who moved my cheese".. a little easy to read book about change using mice as the example. I did make the change and never regretted it - I'm sure you'll be fine too.

    1. Opps, that should read "when I had to make a big scary decision" !!

  6. Hi Jeanette - you food looks very tasty and it's so nice to enjoy ..........

    Wish you the best of luck in your interview - and yes they can be scary but a necessity

    All the best Jan

  7. Aw I'm late, but I do wish you luck! That is some yummy looking eats!!
