For the next few Fridays instead of featuring one recipe, I’m going to share a Delicious Dozen…twelve of my favorite recipes featuring one specific food.  So if you’re in a dinner rut, I hope to be able to provide you with some fun ideas!   Today’s food is chicken.  Sick of the same chicken dishes?  Here are 12 different recipes from around the web to hopefully help give you ideas!   #1 Parmesan Crusted Chicken   #2 Crispy Cheddar Chicken […]

Food Friday – Delish Dozen …Chicken Recipes

This week let’s work on making sure we have plenty of feminine hygiene products on hand in case of an emergency.     (photo)   Not a whole lot to say about it….it’s pretty self explanatory!  I will say that I personally subscribe to an Amazon.com Subscribe and Save service  and I get my products from that.  I don’t like being a brand snob, but I’ve had enough unpleasant experiences in this area that I’ve become pretty loyal to Always […]

Emergency Kits – Feminine Hygiene

The other night I was cleaning out the fridge and I saw a lonely, forgotten avocado.   It was mortifying.  The husband and I LOVE avocado, and let’s face it, they’re not the cheapest produce option out there, and so to find this lone avocado sitting in the back of my fridge had me feeling quite upset.     Fortunately, upon inspection, I saw that it had not gone bad, although it’s life expectancy was definitely nearing it’s end.  So I […]

“In friendship…we may think we have chosen our peers.  In reality, a few years of difference in the dates of our births, a few more miles between certain houses, the choice of one university instead of another…the accident of a topic being raised, or not being raised at a first meeting…any of these chances might have kept us apart, but for a Christian, these are, strictly speaking, no chances.  A secret master of ceremonies has been at work; Christ, who […]

Let’s get stocked up on some non-prescription medication(s) for our kits this week.   (photo)   Life is stressful, even during the best of times.  In an emergency, the last thing you’ll want to deal with is a headache on top of everything else….or allergies, or insomnia.  Feeling at least decent physically will go a long way in helping you to keep your sanity in times of struggle. So…browse through your local ads.  See what’s on sale and buy an […]

I’ve had a tough couple of weeks.  As you may know, I work part time as a Paraprofessional at my daughter’s school; my husband works full time as a Customer Service agent at a company (which will not be named – legal stuff).  I work in the mornings until 1:00, my husband goes to work at 2:00, and therefore there is always a parent at home JUST IN CASE. Two weeks ago today, two women from the local community were […]

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I made my family some Irish Soda Bread.  I found the recipe from Sally’s Smorsel’s a year ago, and it was so good. (This is the only thing I did for the holiday.  I’m a grinch, man, but I just don’t see the need.) I was impressed with how soft and moist the bread was.  Loved it! So here’s how you do it. 1 egg 2 cups buttermilk (or sour milk – mix 1 3/4 cup […]
