Are You Worthy?

YES ! YES ! YES !!

You are worth the effort to make a food plan.

You are worth the effort to cook healthy, delicious meals that look good on a plate.

You are worth the effort to sit at the table and use the “good dishes”.

You are worth the effort to do whatever it takes to make yourself feel well cared for.


And here is a great (Easy) recipe.  Marinate, bake, eat!



Hawaiian Chicken

4-6 skinless boneless chicken breasts

1 cup soy sauce

1 cup raw sugar

1 cup ketchup

2 Tbsp minced garlic

Mix soy sauce, sugar, ketchup and garlic in a container large enough to marinate the chicken breasts.  Lay the chicken in the marinade and put in refrigerator overnight (2 nights are better).  Turn over every 12 hours.  When ready to cook, place chicken breasts on a baking sheet and bake in a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes.

My family likes it with gravy topped rice and peas.  It’s also good with mashed potatoes and carrots.  It;s pretty much good with anything.

*I marinate mine in a gallon ziplock bag.

*Cold leftover chicken is wonderful the next day sliced thin and placed on top of a crisp green salad.

Meals In The Mid 1700’s



Colonial meals were different from what we know today.

Breakfast was taken early if you were poor, later if you were rich.

 There was no meal called lunch.

Dinner was the mid-day meal. For most people in the 18th century it was considered the main (biggest) meal of the day.

 Supper was the evening meal. It was usually a light snack.

Goal Change

Sometimes a goal is very difficult to reach.  I think we do best when goals are reachable.

I am changing my No Gluten goal for January to No Gluten Every Other Day.  So at least for this month I will be half way there.  Kind of like being in Purgatory.

Have a good weekend friends.  Thank you for all of your support.
