  • New Beginnings

I have been busy over the last month or so. I have been going every weekend to Pittsburgh to be with my family. They needed help with the new puppies, and since I do not have to work weekends anymore I can actually go.

I have always said I do my best thinking when I do a long drive. In the 2.5 hours, it takes me to get to Pittsburgh, I have had some time to think. I really want changes in my life, but admittingly, wasn’t sure how to do changes I want.

That was where going to Pittsburgh came in. I realized I need little steps. My head is so full of ideas, but I lose interest quick. Why? I do way too much. Baby steps, that is what I need.

It is little things I am doing. Like, increase my water intake. Before, I wasn’t drinking enough water. It was because I never drink water while I work as a phlebotomist. I was at work all the time. Now, I can drink water while I am at work. The way my new lab is, it allows for that. Which is good because, increasing water is key to weight loss, which I am always after.

  • Hacked

So I will let you know why I was a little silent the last few weeks. Seduction in the Kitchen got a little semi hacked. Luckily, my tech guy, Lokesh was able to get all back and prevent it. I will also admit, I was in a little funk as well. I had another blogger basically tell me I can’t be a real food blogger if I work during the day.

It sounds weird, I know. It came down to because I could not share food posts during the day because I work. This is one those dark sides of blogging no one talks about. It just like in real life you have ones that think they know everything. What works for one person, may not work for another. Yes, it would be nice to be a full-time food blogger and earn a living that pays my bills doing it. It doesn’t.

I feel just because I work during the day a job, should not be held against me. It put me down, that I just didn’t feel like blogging. I realized this is my blog. I am doing the best I can and I am the one that sees the benefit of it, not this other blogger. So in other words, I had that FU moment finally and it helped get me out this funk. Plus I had other food bloggers support me when I vented on Facebook about it.

  • Roast Beef Stuffed Baked Potatoes

So where did the Roast Beef Stuffed Baked Potatoes idea come from? Honestly, it was from a deli that opened up near my work. This deli called, McAllister’s, which is a chain I found out, is known for these mammoth baked potatoes.

I fell in love with their roast beef baked potato. It was so yummy. It had the tender roast beef with caramelized onions and gravy inside the potato with au jus gravy. I am salivating thinking about it. Yes, it is that good.

Those potatoes were on my mind. They are a meal in one after all. The store had a sale on baking potatoes. I knew I had roast beef left over from Sunday dinner. As I explained in Roast Beef with Mushroom Gravy, my family aways has a roast on Sundays.

The brain started to think, why not take that leftover roast beef and do my own version of this roast beef stuffed baked potato! I called my mom and told her I was making this dish and she even said, wow that sounds really good. Oh, my it was so very good. Do you not have leftovers? Well, deli lunch meat works just as well too!
