One of the things that David ordered every night on the cruise was French Onion soup. So I thought I would try to find recipes with the same type flavors to cook for him once we got home. I found this recipe at Home Chef and decided to give it a try. We didn’t make the salad, but I copied the recipe completely from their site for your information. Our pictures are at the bottom.
Chicken breasts (they were huge, so we cut them up, patted dry, coated in panko) seared in some oil.Caramelized the onion (only used one large yellow onion – will use more next time).Followed the instructions for the chicken, the covered the chicken with the onion, the the cheese.Baked until the cheese was melted, and gooey.This was really good. The flavor was spot on, although we both think it needs more salt and pepper —we both loved it.
Working from home today as I think I have a cold…not the flu! I hope!
I have decided to continue blogging daily. I never really thought I would be able to do it every day in 2017 but I did. I had help from family, and lots of encouragement from friends. I pre-scheduled most of my posts throughout the week and as I would have time to write on the weekend.
I have also decided that this is the year for me to conquer six college classes, and to continue to my goal weight. It will be busy starting back to work on today (and Carmen goes back to LSU). Planning will be the key for homework, meals, and exercise. My Passion Planner is ready to help, I just have to use it.
Apparently, it can take 18-254 days to form a habit. Hoping that I can kick into gear and accomplished another 20-30 pounds down this year. Really not wanting it to take forever, but healthy habits would be a good thing. Regain is thing. I know that I am not perfect, and can’t do everything. But wanting to be better than where I am.
Classes – take 6 this year, and increase my gpa. Will be okay with “C’s” but…
Weight – get back on track and lose 20-30 – hit goal weight!
Walk – Four 5k’s (beat my time of 54:35)!
Meal plan – plan to succeed—right?
Stay organized, and not become overwhelmed. Anxiety will not control me this year!
What are you goals for the year? How are you planning on succeeding?
Blessings for today, and for 2018!
Today is HIV National Testing Day.
National HIV Testing Day (NHTD) was first observed on June 27, 1995.
The 2017 federal theme is “Test Your Way. Do It Today”.
I have spoken before about how old I am (50), and growing up in the 1980’s HIV wasn’t really known. I am a big believer in health checks. Mammograms are vital in catching breast cancer. Pap smears if you are sexually active, and HIV testing.
You are your own advocate!
