Just Breathe

I

admit with my work situation changing, I need to make changes. I feel I need to blossom. Almost like I am a caterpillar that has been in a cocoon and now ready to emerge.

 

What? I know I sound like a fortune cookie. My astrological sign is Libra. Libras love balance, right now I do find myself out of balance.

Time To Blossom

It is the perfect time to blossom. I need to change the old routine been in. I need to do something new.

 

I come to realize, I need to breathe. What I realized now is that I have been in a depression. I stopped caring about myself and was existing. Now is the time to breathe and blossom.

 

I need to change the old routine I do and do a new one. I come to realize, I need to breathe. What I realized now is that I have been in a depression. I stopped caring about myself and was just existing. Now is the time to just breathe and blossom.

Improvements

Change is good. I know this. Not only do I want to make improvements on myself but also on Seduction in the Kitchen. I had a post French Onion Rice go viral on Pinterest.

 

That viral post made me realize I want to do more for Seduction in the Kitchen. I loved that feeling of seeing a viral recipe. I want to do it again.

Well, I was craving a ham loaf. Since I can not get one in Cleveland I searched out ham loaf recipes. Of course, I decided to do something a bit different with a traditional ham loaf recipe.

 

Instead of putting pineapple rings on top the ham loaf, why not put pineapple in the loaf. Make it more Hawaiian. It turned out so good! It was great!

Glaze For Ham Loaf

With the pineapple inside the ham loaf, what about a glaze for ham loaf? Using a glaze my mom has made for Easter hams, I decided that would be best for this Hawaiian Ham Loaf. It would add to the sweetness.

 

The glaze was perfect for this ham loaf recipe. It is perfect for using leftover ham. If you like meatloaf, you will love this Hawaiian Ham Loaf.

    Ham loaf takes me back to my childhood! Our mother was in and out of the hospital in the years before she died, and when dad was in charge,we were at the mercy of quick meals from a workaholic during the work week. One of those was ham loaf from a small grocer near our house in Akron. He would pick up a ham loaf on his way home from work, toss it in the oven to heat up, and serve some corn or peas or beans as a side. We loved it, but after three nights in a row of ham loaf, we asked for a bit more variety!

      That is true, having it 3 nights a week, it gets old quickly. My mom it was always buttered peas on the side
