Today is one I am going to spend catching up with my family!
I have been staying with my sister, and we are getting ready to grab lunch, run some errands and spend some quality time with the kids later.
Today feels like an actual “vacation” day… and I am going to embrace it, so I just wanted to check in with a quick hello and leave you with a Thought of the Day:
Try something new! Why not? Live a little, leave your comfort zone, and branch out.
My “try something new” thought came last night when my sister, her friends and I were talking about salmon. I have despised it for years! I really want to like it, becase it is so good for you.
Last night, I had the opportunity to try a small piece of it garnished in tomato basil pesto. I was expecting a “fishy” taste, which is what has kept me clear of it for so long. It wasn’t there, and I could actually tolerate it! I even went in for two more bites and maybe, just maybe, one day I will have an entire piece.
Well, we’re off to lunch.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your Thursday!
Question of the Day
– What is one food you absolutely despise. Would you ever consider trying it again?
I swear my tastebuds have changed over the last few years. I used to hate mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach, hot sauce, and anything spicy. These days, you will see in my recipes and meals that I love all of those things! It’s funny how we grow up thinking we don’t like something, then one day it’s like *POOF! I want more of whatever that was.*
If I never went out and tried those things again, I would have never known. I guess I have to thank my food connoisseur of a husband for that one!
You are so right. I used to only order chicken tenders at restaurants when I first starting dating my,now, husband. Now there is practically nothing I won’t try. Salmon is still on my undecided list because it has it’s own distinct flavor. But I made it twice so far this week and have been playing around with different recipes.
Good for you, Jenn! Love hearing this… and it also means there is hope for me cooking it one day 😉
Heather, I just had salmon for lunch today! I like to cook mine with a little fish seasoning and I add Sriracha at the end for extra flavor and a little kick…you should try it one day. 😉
Yum, great idea Kristen!
