Celebrate Easter with a Gyro Spiced Leg of Lamb. A leg of lamb is a large piece of meat that will feed a crowd or give you plenty of leftovers for the week. It’s a healthy dinner recipe for Easter.
Another Greek Easter recipe! Last year’s Slow Cooker Greek Cornish Hens were inspired by my love of Greek food and for some reason this year I went that way again. I can’t help it. When I think of lamb, I think of gyros. So, I let it go and went with it. The fortune cookie I got last night told me “Now is the best time for you to be spontaneous. Serendipity!”. I actually got goosebumps when I read it. It is a sign. I know it. This fortune cookie was meant for me and has some type of deep meaning that I just haven’t discovered yet. I’m serious. It’s a sign. Since one would hardly consider me a spontaneous person, I am thinking it is telling me the few moments that I have been spontaneous with some opportunities for Food Done Light were correct.
I usually don’t give any consideration to a fortune cookie. I do have a few superstitions but thinking a fortune cookie is telling me something deep about my life is not one of them. It was the last word that got me, Serendipity. Holy cow, I almost fell out of my seat when I read it. As soon as I read the word, an image of the word “Serendipity” formed in my head. It was the image of where I had written the word in the post about Indian Butter Chicken recipe. That particular post was one of the first sponsored posts, I had written. A sponsored post is where someone paid me to try their product. It is a step in the “food chain” of monetizing a food blog. I was so happy to write that post because it was a product I really liked and fit in with the theme of this blog. In the past, I had been a little shy about doing it. I will only write a sponsored post if I really like the product and it fits in with a healthy lifestyle.
Now I have absolute verification that my quick decision was right. The fortune cookie just told me so! I don’t normally consider myself a superstitious person. I don’t like to walk under a ladder but I don’t freak out and worry about 7 years of bad luck if I break a mirror. I actually take it as a good sign if a black cat walks across my path. I adore cats. I do have a fascination with some of it and how much of life is fate. When I was 18 years old, a friend and I went to see a psychic for fun. I don’t remember a lot of what she told me but I remember her telling me, my husband had a long way to come to find me. At the time he was living in Singapore. That is a long way from the USA. She said his parents would have some issues with the marriage but would come around. That happened. She was exactly 10 years off of when it would all happen. She also told me, that the reason I could not figure out what I wanted to do with my life was because technology hadn’t gotten that far yet. Hmm, I don’t think there were many food blogs in 1987. I could be wrong. She even told my friend the name of the man she would marry, literally his first name. Food for thought.
Whether it is a “sign” or not, it made me feel good so I’m going with it. The fortune cookie is not going to make me become a spontaneous person. I’m a planner, organizer and like to double, triple & quadriple check decisions I make. I like to analyze and look at things from all sides. I spend way too many hours at night with my brain whirling around rather than sleeping. I really wish I could just spontaneously fall asleep at night. I’m just going to continue to listen to my gut, and hope that is the spontaneity this fortune cookie was talking about. Hopefully that means Food Done Light is on the right track. Are you a planner and organizer or do you like to fly by the seat of your pants?
