I got loyalty, got royalty inside my DNA

So,

It’s been a while! I haven’t posted in 4 months…

Let’s see. Life updates:

I’ve been cooking A LOT. Currently I am obsessed with my pressure cooker (greatest thing ever) and with the Skinnytaste website/cookbook. Everything I’ve cooked in the past 3-4 months has been from that site and it’s all been DELICIOUS. Some of my favorites:

  1. Chicken Soup with Spinach and Acini di Pepe
  2. Skinny Chicken Enchiladas
  3. Stuffed Baked Pork Chops with Prosciutto and Mozzarella
  4. Chicken Enchilada Soup
  5. Crispy Togarashi Chicken with Sesame Cucumber Relish
  6. Brussels Sprouts and Sausage Parsnip Spiralized Pasta
  7. Chicken Curry with Coconut Milk
  8. Pressure Cooker Stewed Chicken with Corn
  9. Salisbury Steak Meatballs
  10. Honey Teriyaki Drumsticks

The reason I’ve been cooking more is that I have somebody to cook for/with now. Things are going well with DDDDDD. We’ve been spending more time together and it’s been fantastic. We went down to NC for my Spring Break and spent time with his mom, my brother, and then my dad. We stayed in a beautiful cabin outside of Boone (The Mast Farm Inn) thanks to my very awesome brother. Got the Easter Basket blessed.

Last time I posted, I believe that I said I wanted to have a book club. Well, I started a super awesome book club and I love it. I’ll admit I was super nervous the first time we met because I’ve never led a book discussion before and the one time I went to a book club, I was the only person who had read the book and, while we don’t spend the whole time talking about the book, that club barely talked about it. ANYWAY.

We’ve been talking about possibly moving to Austria.  In order to do speech-language pathology there, even teletherapy, I’d need to be recognized as an SLP there. Other than taking up a lot of time, it’s very doable…with the exception of being proficient in German. Sooooo I’ve started learning German.  And I’ve been working on improving my Polish and Spanish.

Hm. What else? There are only 35 days left of school (with kids). I have my evaluation meeting this Tuesday and then negotiating my contract for next school year.  Friday is a PD day. Picking up a new client at the clinic this week. And I think that’s all for now.
