Mother's Curse

You all know about the Mother's Curse, right?  "I hope you have a child like you someday!!!"

Well, Mom, sorry but didn't work.  I have the best daughter ever.

I listen to coworkers and friends complain about their daughters and the mouth, their daughters and getting homework done, their daughters and bad grades.  I just smile and nod and try to say the right thing.

Ayla is 16, I know what was going through my horrid hormonal brain then.  I know what some of my friends were up to then, whether they had tried smoking.... drinking.... by 16.  I'm not saying she's an angel.... well not every day any way.  But she's pretty darn good.  She does her homework without being told.  She studies for test without being told.  She strives to get the best grade she can.  She helps out when asked to.  Is her room a mess sometimes? Yes.  Does she grumble about doing the dishes some nights? Yes.  But those are the little things.  I only want to fight about the big things with her.  Picking my battles.

Football Food!

What's on everyone's menu for this coming fabulous weekend of football?
You all have to celebrate with us.  Augie and her Ravens, Bravie and her Niners and me and the Pack.

I posted a healthy chicken nacho recipe to my healthy blog, that I might make for just me.  Ayla and Phil will turn their noses up at chicken nacho, they want beef! Well venison really but you know what I mean.  Although venison is very lean and healthy so may just make my half with more veggies and black beans.

Oh and have I mentioned lately? I hate 1099s.  What you've heard that one before?  Just last week?

Go Pack Go!!!!!

I know Kim!!!

LOL What was I thinking?  Yes let's challenge Breezy to start doing even more during tax season.  Who the heck came up with that brain fart?

Have I ever mentioned how much I loathe 1099s?  What?  You've heard that one?

How about a quick and easy recipe?  You can thank Augie since she made me think of it.

Cheesy Creamy Italian Chicken

4-6 chicken breasts (I used 4)
1 packet italian dressing mix
8 oz brick cream cheese
1 can cream of chicken

Plop it all in a crock and cook on low 6 hours, serve over rice or pasta.  So good, even Ayla ate it.
