Look at this stuff! She keeps on adding more stuff too! You can check it out, but I am keeping my fingers crossed for me:)
This is a picture of my Dad. This past Sunday, June 28, would have been his 72nd birthday. His name was Charles Michael, but he hated Charles so he only went by Michael. He was in the Marines at the time of the Korean War, but was not sent over to Korea. He was very proud of the Marines.
During my parent's honeymoon they drove to Virginia on the way they pick up a hitchhiker. The only reason why they pick him up was because he was a Marine. My Mom was slightly against it, but my Dad said they had to help the guy out. Very Proud.
I miss him.

It is time for Anissa's Recipe Swap Monday!
Cheesy Green Onion Corn Saute'
1 TBSP olive oil
1 (16-oz.) pkg. frozen corn, thawed and drained
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
Heat oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add corn and green onions and cook and stir for 3 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle cheese and cover for 20 seconds.
Easy Peasy!! I use this as a side dish. Sometimes I just use canned corn and drain the juice. Adds a twist to plain ol' corn:)

This is the card I made for Jason's Dad for Father's Day. I thought it was kind of plain. What I was planning just didn't come to life. Jason and his Dad thought it was good. Okay, I will take it:)
Well this past Thursday, Jason's parents took Lindsey and Michaela up to their cottage for about three weeks. Adela is still with me. It will be like a vacation!!
Later that day we had a train thunderstorm come through. One came right after the other. The first one was bad. We had hurricane force winds!! I swear the windows were moving!! We didn't lose power but others in the city did. Lucky, until Friday afternoon.
Adela and I went to visit a friend for half the day and when I got back I realized we had lost power!! I guess they had to turn our neighborhood off so they could work on the rest of the city. Adela was a little mad. She couldn't watch TV!! As soon as it came back on, right away she was telling me to put on "Dragon Tales". Geez, no patience:)

Hey it is Monday and it is Recipe Swap Monday with Anissa of Our Chaotic Life.
I had made this last week for the first time and my Husband and Lindsey liked it. The other two kids are so picky. They don't eat a lot of stuff I cook:( Adela is my Sodium Nitrite baby and Michaela is my I will eat when I want to eat baby. And when she does eat, it is never stuff I make.
So here it is:
16 boneless, skinless chicken thights (about three pounds)
1/2 cup your favorite barbecue sauce
1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup liquid honey or maple syrup
1 TBSP chili powder
1 TBSP dijon mustard
1 TBSP grated gingerroot
2 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp ground cumin
1 TBSP cornstarch
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 9X13 inch baking pan with cooking spray. Arrange chicken thighs in pan in a single layer.
Whisk together all sauce ingredients in a medium bowl. Pour evenly over chicken, turn pieces to coat both sides with sauce. Bake, uncovered, for about 40 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink in the center.

I wasn't on the computer much this past weekend. I was planning and cleaning for Adela's third birthday party. The actual day is this Wednesday. Then on Wednesday morning we are leaving to go to Wisconsin and we will be back on Saturday. I actually got excited when my Husband said he will bring his work laptop! I can blog a little bit at night during our trip!
