I have left you hanging for too long. We have recently made another transition in our lives and moved to a new city. It took a little while to get everything unpacked and tucked away.
I haven’t quite found my groove so far here in Peterborough, in our new teeny apartment. I have been slowly pushing myself to apply for jobs (which I find to be one of the most difficult things to do). To help keep my sanity the first week here I whipped up a batch of my favourite chocolate chip cookies for CB to take to work for his staff. They were as delicious as ever but I didn’t take pictures or save any of the details to post here. The recipe is one that I MUST share as it is my go-to recipe and hasn’t failed me yet! More on those cookies at a later date!
I have shifted my focus away from baking a little to try to find interesting meals to make for dinner. We hit a winner last week when I made Spicy Bean and Rice Burritos. The recipe is vegetarian but we had leftover chicken breasts that I shredded and added. I wouldn’t mind completely eliminating meat but CB said he would prefer it with a good portion of meat. I think that adding cooked, thinly sliced steak would be great.
So because this post was just a quick one to let you know I haven’t forgotten about you and lacking a little bit of excitement I will introduce you to my fur-baby.
This is Jewels. I adopted her from the OSPCA when I started my first career job in Stratford, Ontario. I read the cat profiles online before I headed in and something about this girl grabbed me. When I entered the shelter I was so pleased to find she was as wonderful in person as her profile described her. We are going on two years together and I can’t imagine life without her. She’s been travelling around with me ever since!
I promise to work on some fun recipes or explore a new place in Peterborough that I can share with you shortly!
