It was a great weekend for the Seahawks nation, aka, Seattle. The current Super bowl champions just became the NFC champions and are heading to the super bowl. Woo Hoo! We were all geared up for the game against the Green bay Packers and I did some test cooking the day before to see what came out good, to make for the game day. On the menu was Spicy Asian Chicken Wings, Vegetarian Nacho Cups, Red Curry Chicken Sausage Meatballs, pretzels and a couple of different sauces that I brought back from our recent trip to Leavenworth, as dips and of course lots of beer!
Here is the recipe for the meatballs and the dill sour cream dipping sauce I made to go along with it. The Spicy Asian Chicken Wings recipe is coming up soon before Super bowl.
Does it happen to you as well that, some days just get the better of you. They just tire you out. Not for any particular reason but its as if that is what the day was supposed to do to you. Where as some other days bring in all the positive energy from around the world. You get through all of your to-do list, find time for everything and go to bed a very happy accomplished person. Then again, you probably went to bed the night before the good day and the bad day thinking you have to get to those 1000 things on your to-do list. It is not like you planned for it to be any kind of day. It just happens.
I have been trying to make some of those bad days into good ones, lately. One of the few different things I am trying is get back into my yoga days. I am not an active yoga practitioner or anything even close to that. I am a beginner at the very best. I just love yoga. I can find the energy to do it even on the most harried of days and I feel a lot at peace after that. I was a regular at it for almost a year before I got pregnant and through out my pregnancy as well. I tried to get back into it after V, but I have not been able to sustain it. A few weeks here and there at best is all I have been able to manage.
Another thing I am trying to do is to write in my little book of gratitude – the things I am happy about for that day – before going to bed every night. I do think of all the good things that happen to be and feel grateful for my life but I somehow feel that when I write it down and I see those words, they make a huge difference.
What is it that you do to try and turn around those bad days into good ones? Read More
