Who says getting a workout is impossible while under the weather? With all this coughing and blowing my nose, my stomach is this shy of a washboard. Or, it might just be the fog in my head causing hallucinations. THAT explains seeing Jude Law holding a garden hose and wearing a tutu in the women’s […]

Chicken and Dumplings

tumblr_lg7c739Pex1qdz03r

So, last week I had a few requests for a good chicken and dumplings recipe. I’ve, uh, never actually made these dumplings you speak of, but why not! In a slight panic I called my Memaw and begged for her secret recipe. A sweet, southern email and 15 minutes of coaching later, I was ready […]

Words like “hysteria” and “panic” are being thrown around in my head as the snowstorm approaches us. Words like “sissy” and “wimp-o” are being thrown around by my husband’s mouth as the snowstorm approaches us. Words like, “you’re […]

When was the last time you had chicken fingers for dinner? Only non-parents are allowed to answer. 700 years? Me too!

We each contributed our part of the dinner, but the main course was supplied by the fabulous hosts. They prepared a most succulent chicken spiedini with 2 pasta sides. You guys, I have not been able […]

So yesterday Aaron was one of the lucky employees in the US to have Martin Luther King Day off. As I left the house, tears filled my eyes watching as he restfully crept out of bed with an entire empty day ahead of him. “Life isn’t fair,” I sobbed. He told me to get over […]

If any of you happened to grow up with me, be my friend, be my sister, give birth to me, date me, or marry me (hi Aaron!) chances are you’ve eaten chicken dorito with me. It was a household staple in my mom’s kitchen and not a single soul was ever left hungry or unsatisfied. […]

Is it too late to eat black-eyed peas? Have I missed the boat on good fortune for the year? Is it over and done with? Should I throw in the towel? Hold up a white flag of surrender? Stop asking questions? You see, I bought some black-eyed peas for the new year, but we, uh, […]
