First off.....I got the job!!!! I will be working as a pet nurse/vet tech at Banfield Pet Hospital. I will be free of Aldi after May 14th. I feel bad since I liked the people I worked with so much, but the job was just not worth it. So now instead of a green polo shirt, I will now be wearing light blue scrubs and a stethoscope. Of course we will still shop at Aldi since the prices are so good, but where I will be working is right next door to a Whole Foods Market which will help Mike and I in our quest to avoid high fructose corn syrup (or anything with fructose or corn syrup in it), avoid preservatives and additives, and overall eat more unprocessed and healthy foods.
On to the new stuff.....
From my new Better Homes cookbook, on Tuesday I made Sour Cream Chocolate Drop cookies:
Over the weekend, while I was working, Mike decided to be earth friendly for Earth Day and buy lots and lots of plants. Here is a look at our backyard now:
The first box on the right hold three bush goliath tomato plants. Now the middle box planted with bibb lettuce and spinach seeds:
Mike wanted me to show off the fish he pan fried for dinner on Wednesday night (as well as my homemade mashed potatoes made with my homemade chicken stock):
And then yesterday I went on a cookie spree. Again, from my new cookbook, I made snickerdoodles:
Tonight is rib night! I am going to try a recipe from one of my Food Network magazines. I will let you know how it goes!
Until then, please enjoy this photo of some baby alligators at a put-put golf place in Orlando that I visited when my Aunt, Uncle, and their girls were here:
