My Dad has been eating fried foods in my face. And my favorites too! Hush puppies and shrimp! I love me some shrimp! Aah! But it is day 3 of my Daniel Fast, and I ran out of the potatoe dish that I cooked. I was going to make meatless chili for my second dish, but I didn't even realize that I bought a can of chili beans that have the meat added already. How in the world did I miss that?! That's what I get for going shopping at 1AM in the morning, and right before an icestorm. This icestorm sucks! I'm getting cabin fever like crazy for being stuck in the house going on 4 days straight. I haven't gotten any writing done. I was writing last night, and the part in the manuscript where I had to describe how the girl eats a chocolate cupcake. Seriously?! I had to stop, I couldn't go on! Anywho, I made sort of a Tex Mex dish for my second dish, and it came out really really good! This is my own recipe:
Tex Mex Burrito & Corn
1 can of Fire Roasted Tex Mex tomatoes
1 can of Black Beans
Half of yellow onion chopped fine
Sprinkle of black pepper
Sprinkle of sea salt
1 TB of minced garlic
1 can of Golden corn
Whole Wheat Tortilla
Half of can of water
You can add the corn in the pot with the tamotoes and beans, but I decided to keep it seperate, so it felt like I was eating more. I just sprinkled the corn with pepper and sea salt. I boiled on Medium High for about 7 minutes, then I simmered on low for about 20min or so. I was going to add lettuce in the burrito, but I got lazy. It was really good, tasted just like a meal I had in a Mexican resturaunt. I will definitely be cooking this again. I only wish I wasn't lazy, so I could fry the tortilla brown in a frying pan, so it would be toasty. I had leftovers that lasted me for a week! I ended up cutting up iceburg lettuce and had me a tasty salad!
Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?
I didn't realize my birth month is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Funny how the first day of the month I have a complete mental breakdown. I'm fine now. Actually the next day I was doing much better.
I knew that transitioning my blog from my budding writing career to a lifestyle blog would be an interesting transition. I am usually secretive and tend to keep my feelings to myself. I knew that somewhere there would be an enemy or foe scowling at my posts, or making jokes at my expense. Which is fine, it comes with the territory. I don't do this for you, I do this for the lone girl that's out there like me. For the person who thinks they are the only one who suffers. I'm open because I'm strong enough to be open. I'm open about my PCOS and the facial hair that comes with it, because I'm inspired by those women who were brave enough to share their experiences.
I'm experiencing what I'm coining 'Environmental Sadness'. My surroundings are mak…
