Hit The Ground Running

Leave Comments   |  

Hello my friends. It’s been several months since I written a blog. Juggling school life, home life, cookbook life, recipe life, mom life…I think you get my point. But now with my retirement, yes I retired after 23 years of teaching. I’m more focused and dedicated than ever to pursue my real passion of cooking and sports. Ultimately, I have no choice. I do have two kids to support. One day I think retirement was greatest thing I’ve ever done. The next day I’m in tears and scared to death. What if I’ve made a wrong decision and I’m going to ruin my life? But then I put things into perspective, what would I have been showing my daughters if I continued in a career I no longer enjoyed. Also, what would I have showed them if I didn’t take a leap of faith and make a life out of the things I love to do the most. What a hypocrite I would be as I tell them daily they need to pursue a career that they love and I wasn’t doing the same. So I’ve hit the ground running, but I’m not sprinting. This will be a marathon that I’m ready to tackle. I mean I ran a half marathon once and that sucked, but I’m ready for this one. As I said, I writing a cookbook “The Game Day Kitchen” which I hope to have published in July/August. Taping my shows live each week on Facebook. And I’m developing another business that I will share with you soon. Truly, this will be a roller coaster ride, but I’m up for the challenge. So here are a few of the recipes I’ve been working on and soon you will find them on my website and in the cookbook.
