    Cajun beef broth mushroom soup with whole cream, and grassfed butter. Topped with chicken breast stuffed with ham, goats cheese, and brocooli. Served with oven roasted tomato (roasted in olive oil and salt). Garnished with sprouts.

    Has to be prepped ahead of time and brought with me. Plating there at room temp.

    • That looks yummy. Make sure you can describe it with evocative words, not just 'good/fantastic/delicious'. Or 'yummy'.

      • Will do for sure!

        Trying to walk down as many paths as possible in life right now- hoping to catch a snag and see what happens from there. I've got a job interview today but I'm not sure I'm really into this place. Hoping to hear from a different position (one I've mentioned before that's still in the making but *supposed* to be posted this week) and then MC in less than 2 weeks. God willing I'll find where I need to be soon. If not I've got school as a backup.

        Did a chunk of butter with salt on top and MCT for breakfast this morning- drinking my coffee after. I always fast before an interview but I haven't been able to fast for a while now so I'm hoping I didn't shoot myself in the foot. Hopefully I'll be sucessful in my fasting.

          • That food looks fantastic!

            You've got a plan, another plan and a backup plan! Something's gonna drop for you soon!

            • I'm hoping so! All in God's timing. I can try to control it all I want to but I don't feel like that will do me any good. At this point I'm setting up pathways and asking God for guidance as to which path I should be taking.

              • Really, I admire you so much. I've had a couple of friends who found themselves in the job market and they just basically curled up into fetal positions and didn't find even look until everything was a critical stage - debt, healthcare, relationships. You've done so many things and pursued your goals. Great stuff is going to happen for you!

                • Thanks Siobhan! That really means a lot to me! I've been anxious to move onto bigger and better things and I'm a bit worried that nothing is coming my way. Your encouragement is definitely a good boost for me though It's definitely needed and very much appreciated!

                  So odd day yesterday. (Not to mention packed as ever!)

                  Left early from work to go up to my job intervew and somehow got involved in a street race on the way up to guelph. A group of guys in mom and dad's acura pulled up and insisted on racing me... they kept egging me on so to shut them up I dropped into second gear and sped off. Now keep in mind Tammikka is only a mazda 3 with a 2.0 litre engine so they must have been crappy drivers because they couldn't catch up to me until the next set of streetlights... and then I did it again. Technically I wasn't looking to race so much as to shut them up- they wanted to line up on a side street but I had better priorities than that. Made the drive to guelph shorter.

                  Got to my job interview 15 minutes early. Waited 10 mins tops for the interview to start. The lady interviewing me was the company's VP of Business Development. She was very well kept; firm handshake, blond hair tied back tight, proper business attire- the HBIC type - and she wasted no time. The interview was 15 minutes tops but not rushed so much as concise. She wanted to get in and out as efficiently as possible. I loved that. I wasn't planning on taking this interview seriously because of everything else I had going on until I got there. Posted on the front reception desk was a plack that read "Dogs welcome, people tolorated". The walls were white, a bright purple (I have no idea the name of the colour), and a limey green. It was actually a nice place. Really I just wanted the interview practice but it was so efficient that half way through I decided to take it seriously. And I did- I didn't really have much of a choice really. If they offered I might take it considering that I'm still waiting on CT to even post their position (in response to my meeting with the manager). Worse comes to worse if masterchef takes off then I'd quit- really that'd only be like a few weeks there but whatever. For now I'll pray and see what happens!

                  • Posting food stuffs!

                    Sous vide rib on pork roast slow cooked with bacon and extra salt. After slow cooking the bacon was removed and the roast finished on high heat on the BBQ. The leftover juices from slow cooking were used to make bacon gravy! Finished with thyme.

                      • Been practicing my MC dish a couple times this weekend. Starting to get sick of it but it's only another week until auditions. Crossing fingers on making it awesome.

                        • Getting stressed... very stressed lately. Feels like I'm hitting a wall and I don't know where to go from here. Prayers needed.

                          • We're with you, ecks. You know what? The way you are feeling is totally normal. All the stuff you've got going on, all the balls you've tossed up, big life decisions - and now something big is on the horizon and it's like you're having fun driving a fast car around a racetrack and all of sudden you realize you are going too fast...but you aren't. It is all going to work out and it will be good. Be grounded and be yourself!

                            • Keep your mind focused on who's in control, Ecks! God has a plan and he is working that plan daily. Just stay open to the possibilities and put yourself out there!

                              Good things are coming!
                              1. Love ME no matter what noises are screaming at me, or who is trying to tear me down.
                              2. Eat to heal
                              3. Move to live
                              4. Embrace today
                              5. Live with intention
                              6. Respect my body
                              7. Cultivate joy
                              8. Find my passion
                              9. Meditate on peace in my soul

                              • Oh, my fella racer!!! I've tried to outgrow that dangerous activity, but it so much fun.
                                I lived in north ATL, worked downtown, went down Peachtree, a zillion red lights, opportunity at every other one
                                I never started it, but I did drive a little Porsche so I was asking for it from the young guys.. My dad loved speed, I blame it on him

                                I sure hope you can de-stress soon. Get some exercise, deep breathing and drink lots of water.. It will really help with your mood. I am praying for your peace of mind. That right there is our greatest de-stressor.
