We worked HARD this weekend around the house. It's cathartic experience. Working until you are soaked in sweat and hurting. But it is so nice after it's all done. We both woke up with breathing issues today after cleaning out flower beds. I was thinking to myself... how did this get so bad? Why did I not clean it up in the spring? But then I remembered that I was still going to physical therapy in the spring. (that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it).
I got to watch Pioneer Woman's first cooking show this weekend. I just love seeing people from my home state do well. I think because you just feel like it's someone you could relate to. But I ended up getting quite a shock during this time. One of my friends told me about a website that is dedicated to bashing her. I had to go look for myself. I guess sometimes I am Pollyanna. I was IN SHOCK. It was hateful hateful hateful!!!! I cannot believe the time and the energy that a person would put into hating someone that much. As I cleaned all weekend long I'd think back to it and think WHY?!!! What makes a person dedicate all of their time to obsessing over someone and pouring out all of your nasty hateful thoughts to the rest of the world? That is just a sick and disgusting thing to do! As my friend Susan said "I'm just far too lazy to work that hard at hating someone." Amen to that! Can you imagine being so filled with animosity that you would do something like that? It's disturbing to me and I am ready to go back to my little bubble of happiness. I like it in there!
I took a picture of last night's meal. Not because it was unique or special.. but because I wanted to show you guys that I simply cannot cook a meal for two people! It's ridiculous. I made enough food (and so did Joe) that we could have fed 6 people.
Chicken Strips, onion rings, sweet corn, salad
I was going to make chicken... but for some reason we decided that one package of chicken strips just didn't look like enough so we thawed out another package. I'd never made homemade onion rings before (shocker, I know) and so I cut up 2 large onions. Then Joe got out the corn and put together a salad.
Who eats this much food? Needless to say, it was more than we could handle. When we will figure this out??? I was REALLY proud of my onion rings. I kept thinking that Hazel would be proud of me. She showed me when I was in high school how she made the ones at Shangri-La Resort on Lake Ouachita. Those onion rings are the standard that I've held every other order of onion rings to. Anyway, these were pretty darn good! I may have to do this again soon. Maybe I can do them this weekend for our company.
So.. my back is a little sore today.. I think it's going to be a laundry day (and recovery day) . I hope everyone has a blessed Monday and everyone is filled with happiness, laughter, and love!
Life is good!!!
I'm a wife and mom! That about sums me up! I am blessed to be married to my best friend for 28 years now. I have 2 great kids that are grown! My hobbies include: Cooking, photography, gardening, reading, painting, and pottery, and feathering my nest!
