Do you ever have those weeks where it actually feels like everything is going right? I have experienced so many synchronicities this week. I was frustrated about technology and someone offered to show me how to use the program, I was frustrated with booking flights home and my friend taught me how to use air miles more wisely, etc. For the last few days, everything I’ve needed has appeared at my fingertips. When things fall into place it feels like I can catch a bit of a break (and get back in the kitchen!)
I can BARELY eat meat when it’s hot out. I love a good roasted chicken but this was a great small meal for a scorching day in Edmonton. If this heat keeps up, you may want to give this a shot over the weekend.
