Today..

Well Shoot. I didn't even do it right. I was supposed to tag some of my peeps to partake in the meme. So here goes (better late than never...)

1. Three Lads and a Lady
2. Today I choose Joy...
3. Always Believe...
4. Live, Love & Laugh
5. Ebert Tree House

There we go.

Today is a new day. Yesterdays tomorrow and a fresh start on a clean slate. A day for new beginnings. ...Okay you get the idea.
I'll be honest, and ...I know you've been wondering about it.
It's not going well. It began unravelling about a week ago...and now I'm up.

3 whole pounds.

I could tell you I'm not gonna beat myself up about it, yadda yadda, but the truth is, I had a great week. I ate what my heart desired, and I desired alot. It went in the mouth left, right and center. Mmm mmm, there were donuts, pie, breads, candy, chocolate, and hot dogs all washed down with a nice cold coke. It was nice. Now I'm done. Ahem...For a while at least.

So here we are again old friend. The one whom I have an ill-fated relationship with, we are always destined to fail, but yet we try, try again. Let's make it last, a little give n' take. You give me self-esteem, I give you fat. It really is a worthy trade.

Today I started with fruit for breakfast, and I'm making a famous mish-mash soup for lunch. It basically involves staring into my fridge and pantry for ingredients that are healthy, and can be boiled in a pot. Currently I have my pot bubbling away with beans, onions, carrots, tomatoes, seasonings, chicken broth, celery, and I'll throw in a handful of rice eventually.

Here's to new beginnings.

Thought I'd post a recipe for anyone looking for something new to try...it's a favourite in our house, and it's on our menu this evening.


Honey Curry Chicken

-Chicken parts (thighs, legs, breasts, ...)
-1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup honey
-1/4 cup prepared mustard
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tbls. curry

Preheat oven to 375.
Combine ingredients and pour over chicken in a shallow casserole dish.
Bake for 1 hour 20 minutes, basting occasionally.

Enjoy!
