Eating Healthy

I've been on a kick lately of cooking and baking, it's been a lot of fun. And the bonus is that it's healthy!

Here are a few things I've made which have been big hits: BBQ turkey meatloaf, chicken pot pie, a chocolate cake made with diet pepsi, and blueberry scones.

It's been fun to experiment and then I cross my fingers hoping others will enjoy it as well. Back to looking for recipes.

The little things

Today was so encouraging, I got three fantastic calls for random jobs that I would love to do!! All in the same day, how great. Watch out here I come.

This time of year

I am SO into fall right now. I love that the trees are turning color, the weather is getting cooler, and the thought of the holidays is floating through the air. Recently, I have fell in love with the flavor of pumpkin (I still can't stand pumpkin pie). I have not been a fan of it before but I love that maybe some of my taste buds are changing. So far I've had pumpkin soup and I have made low fat pumpkin bread. Both were delish! This weekend I'm making a pumpkin roll, I hope it turns out yummy. I'm curious to try other pumpkin foods, we'll see what I come up with.

An inspiring excerpt

Marin Luther said,

This life therefore is not righteousness
but growth in righteousness
not health but healing
not being but becoming...
We are not yet what we shall be
but we are growing toward it.
The process is not yet finished
but it is going on.
This is not the end
but it is the road.
All does not yet gleam in glory
but all is being purified.
