First Fall Meal

October 20, 2013

And who said cooking for one had to be boring?

This past week has been soooo frigid in the mornings and so warm during the day, but I have just been freezing no matter what time it is. I literally get out of the shower in the morning and wrap a blanket around my towel'd self just to stay warm.

So to combat all this coolness, I decided it was time to make some chili. 

You heard me. Chili. White chili with rice and cornbread.

Your mouth watering yet? Cause mine is.

My mom has been making this chili for YEARS and I never knew it was a Publix Aprons recipe, but I'm sure glad it was because I could look it up without bugging her (too much...).

Now I'll tell you this much, I didn't make cheddar cornbread like the recipe calls for. I made regular ol' Jiffy deliciousness. Quick and easy. I also made 2 cups of Uncle Ben's original white rice. 

Scoop the rice and chili into a bowl and top the chili with some cheddar cheese. 

Eat to your heart's content. 

(P.S the recipe is linked to the word "recipe" above!)

It Seems Like Forever Ago...

October 10, 2013
Y'all. I know. 
I can only say I'm sorry for not posting as often so many times but I realllyyyyy am sorry I have been MIA. Just to give you a glimpse into my life, I have class on Monday, Thursday and Friday. Monday from 8-4. Thursday from 2-5 and Friday from 8-1:30 (well, 11:30, but I have to be in tutoring til 1:30). I have clinical on Wednesday from 8-4/5. I have lab on Thursday either from 8-10:30 or 10:30 to 1. I have tests EVERY Monday and just starting this month, tests on Friday. 

These aren't BS tests either, they're serious stuff. 

DO NOT get me wrong, I am eternally grateful to have gotten into nursing school and I thank God everyday that He placed me into a school with such great people and into a profession that I admire and love learning more about. And also, DO NOT get me wrong, I love my program.

It's just hard.

And no one will ever know how hard nursing school is unless they are in it. Or are a med student. 

I literally study every.single.day. And that's honestly not enough. There aren't enough hours in the day.
Each day, I feel like I am barely above water. 

Additionally, my grandma hadn't been doing well and she recently passed. I'm here, but I'm not here if you understand what I'm saying. 

I hope this explains a bit why I haven't been posting, but I'm thankful for each and every one of you. 

God bless y'all.
