So I have recently accepted a promotion the role of Resource Coordinator at work. I’m super excited about the new position and I’m really enjoying being able to work with people and helping them. The position allows me to better utilize my office skills also which I really like. I also really like the company I work for, I feel like they’re a very good company.
Today I made a big pot of Minestrone Soup (recipe after the break) and we had that and meatball subs for dinner. It was the first time I did minestrone soup and man I’m glad I did, it came out fantastic.
So this week I’m working all three shifts. I was off yesterday (Monday), today I’m working from 8:30 – 5:00, Tomorrow and Thursday I’ll be working from 3:00 – 11:30 and on Friday I’m on 3rd from 11:00 – 7:00……Talk about a crazy week. Our department is still working on getting a few new hires trained and until then shifts have been a bit crazy. Hopefully though by the end of April I’ll be doing mostly Days with the occasional 2nd shift on weekends….Can’t wait to find some normalcy….lol.
I’m making salmon patties, French fries and cole slaw for dinner. I’ll share the recipe for the Cole Slaw after the break
Tonight I made Beef Stroganoff for dinner. I used an instant pot recipe and it was so good. We were both pleasantly surprised with how good it came out. I’ve shared the recipe after the break
I’ve really been getting into cooking lately. Over the weekend I made Fruit Salad for both of us for the week as well as Raspberry & Yogurt parfaits for Mark to take to work. This week we plan on having Salmon Patties with Homemade Cole slaw, Home made Hamburgers & Fries, Freshly battered fish fillets and I would like to make a corned beef brisket and cabbage over the weekend.
It’s so nice to finally have a decent kitchen to cook in and I’ve been really enjoying it.
I worked over this holiday weekend but had both Friday and Today (Monday) off. Today I took the opportunity to make some fresh salsa for snacking, as well as some Broccoli and Cheese soup for lunches. I love broccoli and cheese soup it’s super tasty. I’ve included the recipe after the break.
Work has been great. I can’t believe I’ve already been there three months! I’m working in telecommunications support at Trihealth. Which basically means I’m a telephone operator. So when you call the main number there is a chance you’ll talk to me to direct your call. We also manage in house calls for the Trihealth hospitals. It’s a neat job and the people I work with are super nice, I like them all. I feel great knowing I’m helping people and that’s been the best part about the job.
I’m going to try and write more often on my blog, but I have no idea how that will work out as I’m always dipping my hands into something. For instance, I’m attempting to grow an indoor herb garden at the moment. I have Sage, ,Basil, Thyme, Oregano, Cilantro, Rosemary, Dill, Italian Parsley, Chives, and catnip. Some of it is growing quite well already. Others I’m still waiting on to sprout. I have my fingers crossed.
Well I’m off to enjoy some down time. I’m going to game for a little while….
For years I’ve been searching for a way to incorporate fresh fish into my diet. My problem was that I didn’t like the way fresh fish, was so umm Fishy…lol. Well after some searching I found a delicious marinade that we used with Atlantic Salmon yesterday and It was amazing. For the first time ever I really enjoyed fresh fish! We are also going to try this marinade on cod. Anyway I’ve shared the recipe as we made it down below.
