LOL! Debbie ~ Beer Butt Chicken!!! Oh the visual!!!



That's what we call it around here... It's honestly the moistest chicken I've ever made! I got a stand at a kitchen store for about $8, load the can in the stand, load the chicken on the stand, put onions in the top, spray with pam, dust with Montreal chicken seasoning, put the chicken on the lowest shelf in the oven, and let it go... Yummy!

Wasn't here Friday because it's my day off, so I didn't do anything, and by the time I got up at... uhm... oh.... 12... it was too late to say anything.

Monday's course of action:

Up
Do some homework so I don't have to do it after work
Get ready for school
Class #1
Meeting with Dean to buy my airfare & stuff for seminar in D.C. next month (I made the mistake of telling DBF that they're having us all stay at the Grand Hyatt, and I got all excited - then I remembered they didn't invite him to the seminar. Whoops....)
Class #2
Run for city bus
Work
Home
Eat
Homework if I have any energy left


No update on the Judicial Review Board yet - some people screwed up the vote last week, because they're stupid (wanted to ask a bunch of questions, even though they had a week to do so before the vote), etc, etc. So no idea what's going on at this point.

Monday Monday...

Couldn't sleep, thinking about the bills that are due. I hate that! Not that they are HUGE or anything, but I've got to move some $ around. It's tough getting paid every 2 weeks. Anyhow...

Coffee (must go do this soon!)
PrincessM, up, fed, watered, dressed, bus (make sure she has her glasses!)
Make my lunch
Go to PO
Work
PrincessM to softball clinic (hitting and fielding)
Review homework she and DH have done
Dinner? They will have eaten.
Dishes
TV/bed!

The adjuster is coming from the insurance company tomorrow to look at my kitchen ceiling. Unsure yet if anything is going to be covered, but we have a $500 deductible anyway.

Hope everyone has a super fabulous day!

I remember taking a job closer to home for less money, but not realizing at the time they pay MONTHLY! :eek: That took me three months of ramen noodles to get used to before I could buy a coffee out again and not worry. :sad2:

I can feel your pain Jennifer. :hug:

Get kiddos to school.
Get to grocery store and then local stores to check out bags.
Finish the last load of laundry [for today]
Get Swap to post office.
Figure out dinner. Maybe one of those meals-in-a-box things.
Go to library and get some books on bread making.
Homework, dinner, soccer practice.

Morning all!

Debbie, we love that chicken too! Its good with Sprite too, if you don't have any beer on hand.

SIOH - Happy Birthday!

Not much on my list today that's productive.....

Get boys up and ready for school
Pack lunches for 3 of us
DH to drive school bus this am & pm
Go to work
Pick up boys at 3:15
General pick up around house
Homework for DS1, practice printing whatever letter DS2 learned in Kinderarten today (he's struggling, and other than repetition, I don't know how to help him)
DS1 & DH around neighborhood to sell some scout popcorn
Dinner
DH & DS1 to scout meeting

My DH started as a sub bus driver for the schools here this year. One of the drivers went in the hospital yesterday; so he's driving her route all week except Tuesday, when he works. Thank goodness it's his week to only work one day. He went and got the bus yesterday and brought it home, and our dogs HATE it. They barked at it driving in, they barked at it every time they saw it out the window, and they barked at it this morning when he was getting it ready to go. I really hope they get used to it....very soon

Have a good day, everyone!

Glad that Z2H now posts her schedule on the Daily Grind threads - I usually read about it here first! (Sigh.)

Has everyone heard the news she told me yesterday about the great new changes coming to WDW Fantasyland in 2012? (Doubling in size, etc....) Here's a link to learn more. There will be lots more fun stuff to scrap (and I'll be able to finally *really* use the TinkerBell & Friends cart I bought!)

Oooh, that Fantasyland rehab looks AWESOME! I hope we can go in 2012!

Okay, I need to breathe...I won't go into deets, because I wouldn't be able to keep my language clean, but suffice it to say that my DH is making me crazy! OMG, he never ever ever listens to me and he's being a PIMA about helping out so I can work 3 days a week instead of 4 (and save $ on gas, etc.). I can't do it all on my own! :sad2:

i know this feeling! when we were having bus issues i could have decked my dh! i feel your pain!

that fantasyland land thing looks awesome. i so need to be there in 2012!

deb-how was the chicken?

Nan- i want to go to the party too!

Christy- you made eggsalad? :sad: i stink at making it like Ma's!

Lisa-hope you are feeling better. did you try my salt trick yet?

Rebecca-you are lucky you live so close that you can watch the fantasyland rehab as it happens!

09-15-2009, 06:09 AM
Holly it's all in the eggs too the fresher the better and that's hard unless you buy from a farmer. You can usually mask it with mustard (yellow or spicy brown). and sometimes even down to the mayo used we hate miracle whip and use only hellmans even then the green stripe (reduced fat maybe?) isn't as good as the real or light.
you'll get there there are somethings Toms mom made that I'd love and don't have the recipie it was all in her head.

thursday was eggsalad day for mom and bubba. he tells me all the time that i just don't make it like her!
i hope he always remembers that they had thursdays & eggsalad!

joyah
09-15-2009, 06:36 AM
time to start a new tradition that's special to you and him. That way eggsalad is special to Nene. He's also still young and taste buds change all the time at that age (eric ate ham salad for months then decided he hated it) last year.
Hang in there alot of it is him expressing how much he misses her, expressions are so hard at that age. We know we want to stomp and cry and act like little kids cause it's not fair they just have a mess of feelings inside they don't know what to do with.

09-15-2009, 08:52 AM

DH's mom showed me how to make a few of her recipes... I never got the one for what DH calls lemon butter, serve it with fish. Well, I've tried everything, and asked everyone, looked in really old recipe books...nope, it's not "Mom's Lemon Butter" :(

She did show me how to make her mom's creamed chipped beef though. When her brother would visit, and when he was living with us, DUnc96, I would make it for him. It was a blast from HIS past :goodvibes and he loved it!! He would sit and smile... Food memories are very strong, that man was 96 and it took him back to his mom's kitchen :)

i believe that i am a baker not a cook. dh is a fabulous cook! so it works for us. i do make supper almost every night. well i start it first, because i'm home first. but usually he will come in wash up and take over. works for me!
