Today was an extremely long day. I had a Dr.’s appointment, and had to turn around and do grocery shopping. Ironically when I got home instead of throwing together something quick and simple I decided to cook. Yes, you read me…I said cook. So for those of you who may be new to the blog, in the past I have been a complete and total cooking #fail. We just don’t go together, our relationship mirrors oil and water, I just don’t like it.
Oddly enough since I have been blogging and come across many different recipes on a daily basis my interest has been peaked, I kind of want to see what all the fuss is about. Quietly..shhhh don’t tell anyone, I think I am beginning to like it *swoon*. Not to mention my blood pressure is through the roof and the Dr. is running tests to see what is going on so eating out is going to be cut down to a minimum until I can get my pressure under control. Tonight we had baked barbecue chicken, homemade macaroni and cheese, baked beans and corn bread muffins. I made sure to leave out the salt although I did use a bit of Kosher salt, from my understanding that is a little bit better. In the coming weeks, I will be on the hunt for low salt, yummy recipes to cook.
Wish me luck on my new hobby and getting this blood pressure under control!!
