We are in our second week of Kindergarten over here, and my daughter loves it! She already has a friend in her classroom, and she comes home happy and content. It looks like this is going to work out well!
I always thought I would homeschool. That had always been my plan. I was homeschooled until I went to college, and I loved it! I’m very well adjusted and social, and even if I’m a little weird, it’s because each of us are in our own way!
So, when I got pregnant with my oldest, I just assumed that would be my path. Well, for a lot of reasons that I won’t go into right now, we decided that this year our kids would go to school and I would work on building my business – this blog and The Cheerful Kitchen Personal Chef Service.
With a little trepidation and a lot of hope, I sent my oldest baby off – and one week and one day later, I really feel like we made the right decision. She is already settling in and loving the entire experience. And that makes me so HAPPY.
With all of my newfound freedom (or my soon-to-be freedom when the little one starts preschool next week), I am starting to organize my business schedule, put my head down, and get to work. I am so excited!
I LOVE having an outside job that plays to my passions and strengths, and I love doing something really well.
With that organization will now come a specific recipe creation and photography day where I will devote my time to preparing and photographing 3-5 recipes so that I can be thoughtful and methodical about the food I present to you. I want to give you more of what you come here for, not just any old dish I am making for dinner with a hurried few snaps with my camera, hoping I got at least 3 good shots to share with you.
Nope! Things are going to get better around here. And I’m so glad to have you along for the ride.
I’ve been making this Roasted Sweet Chili Pork with Spicy Noodles for a little while now, and always for my husband to take to lunch for work. I portion it out into 5 containers for him, and he eats it cold.
It’s really really good cold because there is so much flavor, and the pork is really tender.
Roasted Sweet Chili Pork with Spicy Noodles is one of those meals that is great hot or cold, though. Make it for dinner and serve it up steaming, or put it in the fridge and eat serve it on a busy night. You really can’t go wrong!
Look at all those fresh herbs! Fresh herbs are one of the BEST ways to bring flavor into a healthy, whole food meal.
I’ve used scallions and cilantro here, with thin slivers of fresh jalapeno for an extra bite of heat that contrast the chili paste with a fresh crunch.
The sauce is poured over hot noodles which are then left to sit and soak up all that goodness for 10-15 minutes, giving them a good stir every few minutes so that not a single strand of whole grain spaghetti gets left out.
By the time the spicy noodles are done sitting, pretty much all of that delicious sauce will have been soaked up, flavoring every bite with salty, spicy deliciousness.
