it's day number 3 here in la palma and i'm feeling so good about getting back into my groove in the kitchen. i bought a cookbook before i left sweden . i think i mentioned it in my last post. it has a 6 week menu plan for both lunch and dinner, so i've been using it as my guide. it's sort of fun, and somewhat 'disciplining' to follow a set schedule. the 'old' me would go off course and find a new recipe online at rachael ray or epicurious or something and get distracted. but alas! i am happy to say that i have completed recipe #4 and am right on track. today's recipe was called 'kyckling med bönor & grekisk sallad' (or for our english speaking audience, 'chicken with beans & greek salad'). i'm struggling a bit to find all the ingredients i need here (especially at our small, local market), but i am facing the challenge and doing my best. i made a few variations (i.e. gorgonzola instead of feta, parsley instead of mint, yellow onion instead of red), but it pleased the crowd that is fred and i. i don't want to make this blog about food, as i have one of those already , but there's not a whole lot going on in my days right now and i want to stay in touch with all of you, so this is what today's post is about! ¡Buen apetito!

Mmmmmm! Jessie it looks so good! Jag älskar bönor! ;) I'm so proud of your discipline! And the adjustments you made sound great! Did you check the GI index on those?
