Funny how a day that started so poorly can end so well! Today was a bit of a rough day to start, to say the least. Getting my second dose of IV antibiotics turned out to be a lot more difficult than anticipated (too many cooks, too many government agencies involved) so most of my day ended up being quite stressful. Not the usual situation for me at all.
After it was all sorted out, I decided to come home and make a healthy treat from the 30 Day Whole Body Detox Guidebook. Did you know that dark chocolate is the solution to any problem? True story! Thanks to Tanya Fraser for her Superfood bars, they always come in handy and taste amazing AND full of goodness. Let’s just say that my family and I love them.
And to make things even better – my hubby surprised me with a pink box from Kelly’s Bake Shoppe!! It’s not often that he surprises me, so this was extra special.
Dinner was one of my own recipes from the book, Mushroom and Rice Bowl. I used a different technique today, inspired by the movie Julie & Julia (Julie Child that is). She mentions that it’s important “not to crowd the mushrooms” or they won’t brown. First I sautéed the onions and then moved them to another saucepan to keep them warm. I added half of the mushroom to the pan, and browned them. Moved them to the saucepan, and browned the rest. Then I added everything back into the frying pan and added the thyme, salt & pepper. It turned out amazing. Probably the best I’ve ever made.
Twenty-eight days and no alcohol – not even one glass! This is the first year I haven’t cheated with wine. Friday night I will be celebrating, and yes, enjoying a glass (or two) of wine.
