Green Thumb

Every year we start a little garden. This year has been the better one. I think with the down time of COVID-19, we’ve been able to focus more on the plants/garden. It’s always satisfying to make something for dinner with something you’ve grown. Plus it tastes WAY better hahaha.

I want to get more in herbs this coming season. Right we have a Rosemary plant that is awesome, but our thyme died out sadly.

Again…

It’s been an interesting month so far. With schools being shut down for the year. Now I’ll spending my time being the teacher, while communicating with both Jax and Lilly’s teachers to make sure that their “distant learning” plans are going correctly. On top of that, making sure my financial situation is on it’s game.

There is a lot of other things going on. But I don’t think as of right now I am able to write a or share with any of you. Believe me! I want to write about it. Get it off my chest, so to speak. In a large way, this is the main reason as to why I haven’t been on here much. Most if not all of my focus has been on this events and making sure my family is happy and safe.

Hopefully soon I can write about it. I might have to ask some questions as what I can and can’t say on here or social media for that matter. Another big factor is a change in jobs, last year I was promoted to Sous Chef. That in itself is rather time consuming and yet rewarding(with a dash of heart break, stress and overabundance of WTF moments). So with that being said, might see a shift on this blog. As far as content goes 🙂

Adventures with Bacon!

About a week ago. I posted about making bacon for the first time. Well today we cleaned it up and had it on a super low heat. 4 hours later, it’s cooling off in the fridge and soon, SOON! It’ll be time to cut into them. The house smells great and I can’t wait!

On the left you have a jerk rub. On the right you have a brown sugar with maple syrup and cracked pepper.
