Sam the cooking guy :)

I've been catching a lot of the Discovery Health Channel these days and one show I try to record when possible is 'Just Cook This' with Sam the Cooking Guy

Have you seen his show yet? He's rather comical.

Today for lunch, I made this and I have to say.......YUM! I made a smaller version because I really wasn't sure how I'd like goat cheese, not to mention I AM only cooking for one anyway. Leftovers are good, but leftover pizza can be one slippery slope for me if you know what I'm sayin' :)

I just finished my 17th Zumba class this morning and it's official.....I am hooked! I have NEVER found an exercise that I so looked forward to or one that leaves me feeling wonderful and full of energy. I came home and finished a project I started before class. CLEANING OUT MY CLOSET! Woo hoo! I bagged up 2 large bags to donate to our church for their annual rummage sale next week, another 2 bags went to the garbage. It's amazing how many 'painting' tops I seriously thought I needed. I had no room to put clothes away anymore. Pathetic.

Then I moved onto my drawers and I packed away winter sweaters and such and replaced closet and dresser drawers with brighter colors for summer.

Then I tackled my fridge. many salad dressings does one person need? And 3 bottles of half empty soy sauce? No more!

I think I'm going to head out shortly to Dale's for supper and a little visit by the fire pit this evening. It's a beautiful day here!

Oh! I also came home this morning to find that 3 of my paintings sold on Etsy. My heart about burst! It was a great feeling. I need to pay more attention to my shop and try get some new things listed soon. I've neglected it a bit......shame on me!

Hoping you all are having a wonderful weekend so far!! Thanks for stopping by even though I haven't been updating as often as I should♥

Yum is right!! I love goat cheese.
I had this amazing chicken salad somewhere on one of our trips to the mountains, it had warm goat cheese on it. It was one of the best salads I have ever eaten.

I think the sales fairy must be around on Etsy because I got three sales yesterday too, after a month of only 1 sale it was a big sigh of relief ;)

*yay* go us!!!

Yummy!! That looks really good. I will have to try it. I love Sam the Cooking guy! He lives in San Diego and I ran into him once. My reaction was hilarious. I said "Are you Sam the Cooking guy?" He said "Yes, I am." I totally freaked out and gave him a hug and told him that I loved his show and I make his stuff all of the time. I really only have made a few of his dishes..I don't know why I acted like such a geek!! He is kinda cute though... :)

Sounds like you had a very fun productive day. I've been cleaning out my closet too, and still going. It's amazing how much stuff you can compact in such a small space. And Congratulations on your sales!!

Darla, that looks simply, simply delicious! I have never seen that show before!
So, how did you like the goat cheese? I have never tried it?
You know, you could also use laughing cow cheese, it is spreadable, have you tried it?

I'm so HAPPY you love Zumba so much, that is wonderful!!!!

And wuu huu all that energy you have? That is FABULOUS!
I have neglected everything - my housework, etsy, my closets, my blog . . . . .

I'm sooooooooooooo BEYOND HAPPY for you on selling the paintings! Yipeeeeeeeeeeeee! Yipeeeeee! Yipeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! =)
