Journey Journal: Days 106-108

Day 106: Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

As we get closer to the release of Dispatches from the Front: Episode 6the days are pretty busy in the office. Since I’ve basically cut dairy out of my diet, I have not struggled with allergies at all this season! This is a huge improvement! (and maybe even worth never eating cheese again!) So, I was surprised when I started sneezing and getting a headache. I went to Goga and sat in the sauna that had peppermint oil in it–that seemed to help. But then later, I couldn’t breathe again.

Day 107: Wednesday, April 17th, 2013

Definitely not allergies. Full-blown head cold. Left work early around 2 PM and came home. Finally fell asleep around 4 PM, slept for 4 hours, got up and ate a little and chatted with Bryan, then went to bed again around 10 PM!

Day 108: Thursday, April 18th, 2013

Thankful for a good night’s sleep. Feeling a good bit better. (I guess that’s what 14 hours of sleep will do for a person!) Another very productive day at work. I think we’re ready for the DVD Premiere this weekend! And making really good progress on other projects and upcoming events! Actually got off work at 5:00 this afternoon! Came home and went for a 4 mile walk with Bryan around the surrounding neighborhoods. Then we had a delicious dinner of pan-seared salmon with brown sugar and cajun seasoning; served over a mixed baby greens salad with walnuts, strawberries, and honey mustard dressing; steamed broccoli and carrots; and caramelized purple cabbage, leeks, and garlic.

Perfectly Baked Bacon

Preheat oven to 425F. Line bacon in a pan with a rim, sprinkle with a few tablespoons of brown sugar and grind McCormick’s Italian Herb Seasoning Grinder over the bacon. Cook for 10 minutes, turn over and season again, and cook for another 10, or until crisp. May take up to 25 minutes, depending on how thick the bacon is. Mom always uses Oscar Mayer Thick Cut Bacon.

If you don’t have the McCormick Italian Herb Seasoning, it contains rosemary, black pepper, crushed red pepper, dried garlic, dehydrated onion, sea salt, sun dried tomato, and parsley.
