Humdrum Saturday/Sunday and some recipes

Not much going on here.  I'm really making headway with a few of my goals that a mentioned a few posts ago.  I'm eating better, keeping my house cleaner, and keeping the inside of my head a more positive place.  While still stressful, life is looking up.  I think I will squeeze under the wire for school, thank goodness (and thank goodness for parents that are able to help).  It can be so easy to be drug down into the muck and mire of daily life and sometimes we need to take a breath and remember how blessed we are.  I'm working on a fun post for Monday with lots of cool pictures.  Here are some random pictures from this week.

Polenta and eggs
Boil three cups of salted water. Add 1 cup polenta and a dab of butter, stir stir stir.  When very thick add cheese stir in and remove from heat.  Poach two eggs, keep the yolks runny, ~4 minutes.  Serve up a dollop of polenta place two eggs over top and spoon on a little pesto.  Mix together and enjoy.
Yummy chicken
Cut raw chicken (about three breasts) into bite size pieces.  Heat some coconut oil (or olive oil) in grill pan and add chicken.  Add about 2 cloves chopped garlic, a few tablespoons of balsamic vinegar and soy sauce and a few squeezes of honey.  Cook, enjoy.  This is good served over rice or pasta tossed with a little more browned garlic and red pepper flakes.  Top with toasted sesame seeds.
