Not Feeling Well
So, you may have noticed I was silent this week. I got a very bad sinus infection that went into an ear infection. It is my allergies, they are in overdrive.
Actually, I am still trying to get over this infection. I got bad laryngitis right now. Let’s just say I sound like a husky Minnie Mouse, I am squeaking with a husky voice.
Working at the health center has been fun as I have been going through this. I called off 2 days because I could not keep my balance, due to the ear infection. I don’t think people want a dizzy phlebotomist drawing their blood.
When I lost my voice when, of course, I had to get all the hard of hearing patients asking “Who did you call?” I heard this so much over these last few days. My mom said I should rest my voice, yeah, not going to happen when you work in the medical field.
Aside from that, I do have a few exciting announcements. One, I have partnered with YUMMLY! In fact, you will see a Yum Button on all the posts now.
It helps save the recipe to your Yummly recipe box. Plus it also a voting type thing too, when press it, it “yums” it up. You can check out the Seduction in the Kitchen’s Yummly page to start yumming those recipes if you like.
My local grocery store had frozen salmon on sale. Originally, I had this idea for a shrimp Caprese, but when I saw this salmon. I thought, no wait, I want to play this up different.
I love Caprese Salad. My friend Richard does one with this balsamic glaze that amazing. That is where I got this inspiration for Caprese salmon from. It tastes so superb!
I think doing caprese salmon was a much better idea than shrimp caprese. I think you will agree after having a bite of this wonderful dish. It will seduce you.
