I’m Good!

Update post pic

It’s been a couple of weeks since I last pecked out a post on the old typewriter 🙂

And no, I have not lost interest in blogging…

I’ve just been busy with life stuff.

No worries though, it’s been mostly sunny with a few scattered showers but that’s to be expected right?

I plan to pick back up with new posts some time in mid to late May.

Meanwhile, I’ll be trolling your blogs—in a good way! 🤣

A special thanks to those who reached out via e-mail!

I appreciate that very much.

By the way, if you are interested, you can always poke around on my Instagram page to see what I’m up to.

I’ll be ‘seeing’ you guys soon 🙂

Love and light to you all!

Real Good Food: Pan Seared Chops

Pan Seared Pork Chops

 

Yessir!

Can you get with these?

Pan seared pork chops seasoned with oregano, crushed red peppers and salt.

No words spoken!

Just a whole lot of lip smacking and finger licking!

All pretense aside!

At my house, when something tastes good, you’ll know it because we all become completely silent—well, with the exception of the aforementioned lip smacking and finger licking.

So, here’s how it went down:

So that was that!

Oh, by the way, one of my dear followers had the audacity to send Lady G this mess as a submission for “Real Good Food”:

darrylnoodles
The culprit’s first name starts with ‘D’ and rhymes with ‘arryl’

Say what??????

But, Lady G shall disregard it!  LOL 😂

Which meal looks better?

You tell me!

Holler at me in comments.

 

Have a fantastic week 🙂

Love and light Lady G 😘💋

 

Real Good Food: Getting By With A Little Help From My Friends

My Bestie’s Lunch:  Jerk Chicken, black beans, rice and cabbage

 

Lady G ain’t the only one who knows how to throw down in the kitchen.

Today, I decided to share a pic of my girl, Gloria’s, lunch–which was actually leftovers from her Sunday Meal.

No, seriously, all of my closest friends are bigly into cooking real good food.

Don’t get me wrong, it is sometimes necessary to drop express meals via microwave.

However, my friends, who are all working mothers, believe strongly in the importance of cooking ‘from scratch’ as often as possible.

But there’s a trick to making that happen and here it is…

When you come home after a long day, be it from work or play, go straight to the kitchen and get started cooking.  It also helps if you do some advanced prep work like washing and seasoning meats or cutting up vegetables.

Now, after you’ve gotten everything simmering, baking or whatever the case may be, THEN you can go take your shoes off and put on some comfortable clothes.

Of course, you don’t want to leave your food unattended for long or you’ll have bigger fish to fry (pun intended), so you must get back to the kitchen ASAP.  Also make sure that children are always being supervised by an adult in the kitchen.  If I am frying , searing or sautéing something,  I do not leave it unattended.

Anyway, the ‘start cooking first’ trick works for me because I find that if I go straight to my bedroom and get too comfortable I will not feel much like cooking… and, at that point, a real good dinner quickly morphs into pizza, cereal or sandwiches.

NOT GOOD!

And so…

To sum it up, prepare as much as possible in advance and start cooking as soon as you walk in the door.

By the way, If you would like for me to share a picture of one of your real good meals, please shoot me an e-mail at: ladygflow1@gmail.com.

Be sure to put “Real Good Food” in the subject line and if it is real food that looks really good then I’ll highlight it here.  Be sure and add a quick backstory about your selection 🙂

May you all have a blessed week!

Love and light to you!

Lady G 😘💋

 

 

 

Walking Dead

walking-dead-1666584_1280

This morning while cleaning up, I overheard Oprah on TV asking her guest, John Kabat-Zinn, what happens after we die.

I immediately put the dishrag down and turned toward the TV because I wanted to hear this.

Surprisingly, Kabat-Zinn flipped the proverbial script by answering her question with a question.

His question was, “Is there life BEFORE death?”

Okay, for those of you who just woke up, let me try that again.

The man asked the woman if there is life BEFORE death.

Hmmm….

He went on to say that he’s known many people who appear to be alive but who have, figuratively, died a long time ago.

Wow! I thought.

I know people like that too!

You’ve seen them!

They’re easy to recognize because they tend to walk around carrying on and on about their reasons for hating, resenting, ranting, railing, worrying, mourning and not forgiving.

Where is the life in that?

Don’t get me wrong, I understand that we’ve all had these experiences/emotions, but there comes a time when we must process them, let them go and begin living life.

If we don’t, we become the walking dead.

And so…

If you fear that you may be an animated corpse, consider changing that.

Frankly, it may take professional help to return you to the world of the living.

There is nothing wrong with going that route; in fact, I think it’s admirable.

In the meantime, whether you need to be resurrected or simply reminded, consider living by Paul’s advice to the Phillippians:

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honorable, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.–Phillipians 4:8

Have a beautiful week!

Love and light to you all!
