    :woohoo: I'm a LAX mom. I'd love it if my kid got on a college team!!! He loves it - his middle school team went undefeated for the first time EVER last year & he was a starter as a 7th grader, BUT he loves music more & is hoping for a music scholarship. I'm a happy mom either way!!! He's playing football and indoor lacrosse right now.

    Doesn't give me much time to cook dinners, so we'll be eating lots of takeout for the next few weeks!!! :)

    In my neck of the woods we call them chicken led quarters. East coast often has different names for their cuts of meat. Also unless your chickens walk funny, ours have their legs attached to thighs, not breasts! :lmao:

    Nancy, hope everything is well with you and your pedicure and surgery.

    Marilyn, the crab story was funny. My cleaning lady's daughter has a fish tank and they have a little lobster that they find all over the house. Soon it could be literally because they have cats!

    Ellen, thanks for your concern. Her wounds are healing, slowly, but the big one that used to be 3"x2 1/2" is now down to about the size of a guitar pick. Some of the holes might actually be considered healed, we're waiting at the doctor's office now.

    Brandi, the leftovers look good! :thumbsup2

    Tracey, see, grilling is cooking. Now you just need to expand your skills slowly as you have time.

    We have been eating package meals, since I don't have any time to do anything! Tonight will be Zatarains Jambalaya (low sodium of course) with keilbasa, okra and chicken added.

    And, it wouldn't be a meal without the frozen yeast rolls! I buy those things in bulk!!!!

    Oh Ann it is so easy and oh so good.

    Snickers Salad

    3 large Granny Smith apples cut in bite sized pieces

    3 Snicker bars cut in bite sized peices

    1 small box of instant vanilla pudding

    1 container of cool whip

    Put apples and snickers in a bowl. Combine the pudding and the cool whip and incorporate all together.

    I suppose you could add nuts or other things and you can adjust the apples and snickers. This is how I make it and it is always a big hit and never any leftovers. I hope you like it!!


    Fran ~ I am so glad to hear Fran is healing. YEA!!! Prayers answered.

    Ellen - I'm feeling better today. Hopefully with spring here now, this will be the last of the sickness for this year. Hope that things slow down a little for you and that we see more of you on this thread.

    Your snickers salad is soooooo bad! I already feel the snickers sticking to my thighs!

    Ann - If you decide to do the shrimp, you might want to add some other seasoning to it. It was nice but I think a little spice would have made it even better.

    Tracy - It's the weekend here. I'm hoping for lots of takeout too.

    Alison - You're absolutely right. Leg bone is connected to the thigh bone.....:blush: I have no excuse other than tiredness and old fogie syndrome.




    So I got me some snapper fillets today. I'm seriously considering making some home made fish cakes tonight with oven fries.


    Have a great day all.

    PIO - I have really bad allergies and tend to cough a lot, and more so when I try and lie down to sleep. My Dr. prescribed something called promethazine which keeps you from having the urge to cough. This allows my throat to heal and gives my chest and ribs a break. They are really tiny, gel like caplets. But they work miracles for me, they do not do anything but keep you from coughing...

    But you might look into them as an option.

    We just finished our 5th week of insanity - and I went to buy new shoes, I had been using old ones and they were allowing way too much movement in my feet. I am an over pronator to begin with and needed new kicks.

    But I am ready to continue even while on my work trip.....

    That salsa got way hotter as it setup... I am not sure I will be able to eat it, but David is loving it...


    Hope you are enjoying every minute of the church activities and getting back into the grove of everything.

    The roast sounds good, I love a good hearty pot roast.

    Ann, David does not like to eat left overs too much so I have to redo them in a way that makes it seem new.

    I can make tacos out of anything...

    Citrus Mango Chicken

    six boneless, skinless chicken breasts [NOT thin, cutlet-style], sliced into 1" strips
    1T. olive oil
    one large yellow or red bell pepper, julienned
    one large onion, quartered lengthwise
    1 T. + 1 t. Adobo (I use Goya) all-purpose seasoning with pepper
    1/2 t. salt
    1/4 t. garlic powder
    one large orange
    one large lemon
    one lime
    4 oz. mango nectar


    In a skillet, over medium heat, saute` chicken with oil until outside of chicken turns white. Add peppers, onions, and seasonings, occasionally stirring so that meat and vegetables don't stick to pan, about 10 minutes. Lower heat and add some zest of the 3 fruits. Cut each fruit in half and squeeze juice from all halves directly over chicken mixture. Add mango nectar, stir, and cover. Continue cooking over low flame. While meat is cooking, prepare a 1-lb package of thin spaghetti, according to package directions. When pasta is cooked and drained, put in a large spaghetti bowl. Pour meat mixture over pasta and serve. Serves 4-6.

    .....well, you could come to my garden and pick all you like - I've got a really big rosemary plant that's been growing since LAST YEAR, right through the winter AND that freak snowstorm we had last Halloween....
