Busy Busy

I never realized how busy we were until we realized we needed time to get completely moved in. Our days go by so fast with all the stuff we have to get done. It's exhausting but exciting to get it accomplished, and I can't wait to show off our place.

I forgot to mention, I got a job! I work at a place that has many different vendors, and I mostly work for one specific vendor (and she happens to own the whole store). I work mostly in the back, weighing, bagging, labeling, and stocking herbs, though sometimes I work on stones or incense as well. And I've learned so much! When I bruised my leg really bad on our new sofa, I made a chamomile poultice and it got rid of the swelling. When my mom got sick I made her a tea with peppermint, chamomile, and rosemary. This is absolutely the best job I could ever want and I could not be happier. I am so grateful for Heather (my boss and friend) for everything. I am so blessed!

On another note, David has lost 30 lbs so far! His clothes are becoming too big for him and he had to get a smaller belt! It's so exciting to see the changes:)

Tarragon Chicken

Tarragon chicken

I've had a big bottle of Tarragon sitting on my counter for ages, from when I used it in a salad dressing recipe forever ago. I figured it was finally time to give it a try with chicken, and the results were...meh. David actually really liked it, but I was unimpressed. However I still have plenty left on the bottle so I'm sure I'll make this again.

Tarragon Chicken

2 chicken breasts
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tbsp dried tarragon
1 tbsp olive oil

Mix it all in a bag, then cook on a skillet (or grill if you have one).

I added the peppers when the chicken was about half way done, so they wouldn't get over cooked but also got to soak up some of the flavors.cook
