tuesday... truth

OK I have to tell you all something... I absolutely dislike it when people talk politics in public. I'm more saddened when they make you feel lesser than when you don't believe in their side of the road. I understand not everyone will have the same opinion, but that's ok. It's how we handle the topics. I have had people I grew up with say on social media... I'm de-friending you because if you don't believe in this or that you are no friend of mine. Really? How old are we!  I truly feel that is so sad. In my house I had parents that were Democrat and Republican {moderate}. Guess what people I absolutely love that... I loved listening to them talk peacefully and they both would communicate each side of the topic. No one would cry or throw tantrums. We had grace in our family... We truly did and still do! So when I see and hear people being so angry and harsh and bringing up politics in public I become sick to my stomach. Ughhh As I mature,  I have learned to smile and walk away. One time someone I knew very well, kept pushing negativity about a politician {this was a little while back} and I asked them to politely stop. It was so negative and harsh it was starting to wear on me... They stood up and screamed and said, I was stupid and young, what do I know. Of course I could have screamed back and got in her face. But I looked at her and said, I'm sorry you feel that way and ended the conversation with a smile. She stormed off in a huff. The next day she realized her actions were out of line and apologized. I smiled  and gave her a hug... said,  lets talk about your political side. I would've to hear it... After that she never was negative anymore in front of me. No side is correct... Truly! FYI please don't bring up politics and make people feel bad about their side. Talk and have a conversation. Just listen to all sides! You might find something fascinating from one party to the other. I love listening to each side... Everyone can make valid points when they are calm and logical.

{recipe from here}


For the chicken:

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/4 cup 1% plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • 3 Persian cucumbers, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup (145 g) cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ¼ red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup Skinny Tzatziki (from my blog)
  • 1/4 cup authentic feta (the kind that comes in brine), crumbled
  • 12 smashed castelvetrano olives



  1. Cut the chicken thighs into 1 inch (2.5-cm) pieces.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the yogurt, oil, vinegar, garlic, oregano, turmeric, salt, and red pepper flakes.
  3. Add the chicken and stir to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour and up to 8 hours.
  4. Preheat an outdoor grill or grill pan to medium-low heat.
  5. Thread the chicken pieces among 4 wooden or metal skewers, discarding the marinade in the bowl.
  6. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  7. Grill the chicken, turning the skewers occasionally, until golden brown and cooked through in the center, about 15 minutes.
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the oil and vinegar and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Add the cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, and red onion and toss to combine.
  1. Divide the quinoa among 4 bowls, 1/2 cup each.
  2. Top with the cucumber salad, followed by a spoonful of tzatziki, 1 tablespoon crumbled feta, and 3 olives.
  3. Top with 1 chicken skewer and serve immediately.

Who would have thought... Me painting and liking it. Its fun! But I will say this, I sit down at the kitchen table and have no expectations, no rules... I have nothing, except the will to relax! I pick a subject and paint it for fun. My painting teacher said... I have something rare. A true "crazy artist" is so judgmental and picky that it can take years to finish their own paintings. Ha Well, for me it only takes me about an hour  or two and then I'm done. I'm not nitpick. I just go with the flow. I love it! So on Mothers Day I did just that... Sat down quietly and painted. Ryan played at the park and Taylor had to study for a science test. So truth is... I like to paint! 

What's your passion... Do you have one?

crostini with peaches, blue cheese and honey
{recipe from... here}

* 1 baguette, cut into 1/2-inch slices
* 2 Tbs. olive oil
* 1 clove garlic
* 1- 2 peaches, pitted and sliced into thin wedges
* 8 oz Cambozola cheese
* about 2 Tbs. honey

Preheat oven to 400.
Arrange the baguette slices on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle the oil over the bread. Bake for 7 minutes, or until the toasts are lightly golden. Remove from the oven and rub each toast with the raw garlic clove. Arrange the peach wedges over the bread. I was able to get 2 little wedges per toast. Then divide the cheese over the peaches and place back in the oven for another 5 to 7 minutes, or until the cheese is melting and the peaches have softened.
Remove from the oven and drizzle with honey. Serve ’em to only yourself!
