  • Just Breathe

I saw a saying this guy put on Instagram that said:

Breathe, it was just a bad day. Not a bad life.

It made me smile. Why? Because it is true. I just happen to have had a bad day that day I saw that posted on Instagram.

A long time ago, I was told there are signs everywhere, we just need to pay attention. I come to find that saying is also true. I needed to see that breathe saying on Instagram. It was a sign I was paying attention.

How was it a sign? I needed to know that things would be ok for me. That saying helped me realize that.

Sometimes you just need to open your eyes and look around. You see what you need. That advice I got years ago that signs are everywhere, I try to remember that. I don’t always pay attention but sometimes I do.

Before I start talking about these Greek Spinach and Feta Chicken Burgers, I had an epiphany. In a way it was a sign, I actually was trying to figure out a way I can share my recipes better on Facebook when I saw a blimp of info on Google that the light bulb light up.

I have well over 400 recipes on Seduction in the Kitchen. As you may know, I have been redoing SEO on the old recipes. Also, I have been republishing some the older recipe as new posts. Like

Honey Baked Cinnamon Apples is a simple and easy dessert you can make at home. You can even take the tasty level up a notch and serve these warm, gooey apples with a scoop of ice cream.

Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup is "almost famous". This recipe is based on Pea Soup Andersens famous endless bowl version in Buellton, California. Like the restaurant's this version is vegetarian, and dairy free. As a bonus, it is made in the slow cooker.

My epiphany was I actually can start publishing a recipe every day. I have so many great recipes on Seduction in the Kitchen that this can be possible. I actually can do this now with my back log.

Why would I do this? You could have missed the recipe the first time around. Plus it does help with some the seasonal recipes like pumpkin season is coming up soon.

Hey, I am doing the work anyway, so why not? It really an easy for me to do at this point too. I have graduated to this my stress relief to this my blog.

How did the idea of the Greek Spinach and Feta Chicken Burgers come to be? Honestly, I texted the man I adore and can not quit, yes the Persian man. To inspire me for a burger. I know I am hopeless when comes to him. I have no idea why we are so attracted to each other.

Anyway, He texted me back, chicken. He loves chicken. Well, the chicken suggestion it did spark my imagination.
