Chicken is in the oven….

I’m not following the cooking instructions (I am cooking it in another way).  Here’s hoping it is still good.

Whenever I am doing a better job at eating healthy, I like to look up the health benefits of pretty much everything I am eating.

"After some 30 years of [analyzing teaching], I have concluded that classroom teaching—particularly at the elementary and secondary levels—is perhaps the most complex, most challenging, and most demanding, subtle, nuanced, and frightening activity that our species has ever invented. In fact, when I compared the complexity of teaching with that much more highly rewarded profession, “doing medicine,” I concluded that the only time medicine even approaches the complexity of an average day of classroom teaching is in an emergency room during a natural disaster. When 30 patients want your attention at the same time, only then do you approach the complexity of the average classroom on an average day."

I made a mojito marinade from scratch tonight.  It tastes good!  I hope my chicken tomorrow meets my expectations.  Super impressed with myself.
