Quick and Easy Weeknight Powerhouse

This simple weeknight dish is a powerhouse of healthy ingredients. I love making large batches of this and freezing some of it for leftovers.

Sometimes he is not dependable and seems to run from his feelings for me. He is just under 60 years old and I am in my middle 50s with no time to waste. What is your advice?

You can’t just show up on the front steps of a corporation expecting to get hired. You send out resumes, ask for referrals from friends, and network to get noticed. Your profile is like your online dating resume.  It boasts about your background, your special skills, and is clear about what you are looking for. Referrals may be blind dates.  Networking is like going to a bar.
