One of 365 plus ways to cook chicken #MFRWauthor #popperchicken

Holy Cow!  It’s already week 49 of the 52-week MFRW blog challenge. This year is going by fast. But no worries a little elf tells me we will be back next year with more new topics! This weeks topic is a favorite recipe. I hate I can only do one!

At my house, we have the running joke that I can make chicken every day of the year and never make it the same twice.  My son would recite the line from The Movie Forrest Gump but change the Shrimp to Chicken.

So

 

That brings me to my recipe. my newest addition to my repertoire… Low carb Jalapeno popper chicken. Its a new favorite of mine and i make it more than once a week. My son even likes it though e is glad he no longer lives here and only eats it on occasion.

I found the original recipe here. At Aunt Bee’s Recipes 

When My grandies, son, and wife are eating I double the recipe.  I season the chicken with creole seasoning before baking. and right now I have fresh jalapenos from the garden.I also substitute onion powder or minced onion for the onion and add some garlic to the cheese mixture.

Two of my family didn’t care for the skins so we use Ritz crackers crumbled with parmesan cheese and butter on theirs.  It’s not low carb but those are not following low carb diets.

If only needing two or three cut that recipe in half. ( I recommend making at least an extra for lunch!)

Now I want a batch! Guess what we are having for dinner tonight!
By the way with all the recipes I have, the internet and cookbooks I have I bet I could do chicken every night for about 5 years and not repeat! LOL

It’s Under There Somewhere #MFRWauthor #writing space #amwriting

 

Hi Y’all I hope you had a nice holiday. Of course, I ate way too much and am trying to find a thousand ways to use turkey ham and stuffing. This is week 47 of the 52-week MFRW blog challenge. This year is nearly over. So far I have only missed two. Our topic this week is Our Writing Space. I am one of the lucky few that have an office.  Its a nice size edition on the front of our house and an entryway.  You see, My house is a geodesic dome. When we bought it it had this strange barn shape front entryway that the inside never was finished. It was awkward, hard to step into and had a small coat closet on one side that was falling in and full of mold,

The hubby was going to take it down and make it a front porch instead. I asked him to screen it in, that went to storm windows all around so now I have an office. Right at the moment, one-half houses my husband’s table saw so he can do work inside the house (always seems to be a remodel)  and a stack of wood. This weekend I am cleaning that out once again bringing in my houseplants.

here is the inside though now I have lacy open curtains.

My bookshelf

When they closed the shoe factory in town, dad bought one fo the office desks for mom. It is one of those huge ones that was used in manager offices. A beautiful oak.  Dad painstaking refinished it and it sat in their spare room for years. Mom used it for doing their taxes and little else. When she passed away and he moved I asked for the desk and nothing else.

So I am one of the lucky ones with a large office, full of windows and a nice desk, lots of file cabinets as well. It didn’t have heat since it was an addition and three years ago when we got the new heating unit hubby had heat and air installed in there as well.

Let’s go check out the other author’s spaces.

 

Waking Up In Crystal City

Once upon a time in a land far far away, the trees were made of ice, the grounds billowy blankets of snow.

No, I’m not writing a fairytale. This happened in 2009 in my sleepy little town.  It’s not unusual to get snow where we live but this particular day was extremely unusual. On the night before it began to rain. The temperatures fell turning to sleet. And sleet and sleet. I was afraid my skylights were going to burst from the weight. It was eerie. You could hear crackles and pops outside but the windows were so iced you couldn’t see through them. The doors froze shut. Suddenly the power was out.  Luckily I have a gas cook stove so we were able to use that and at the time I had a landline phone.  My husband was A truck driver over the road and was trying to get back to us.  He stopped and picked up supplies such as ice melt, bottled water,( I don’t use bottled we have purifiers on tap) bread, extra peanut butter, battery lanterns, batteries and a generator in a town that wasn’t hit.

We had it lucky in town. We were without power only a few days, water back sooner, the outlying communities some were without for weeks.  I also had lots of food and with the gas stove could cook. The generator kept the fridge and freezer running. We didn’t lose anything, where many did.

I had a close call though. I stepped on the back porch when my husband told me not to and the neighbor’s huge pine that had a branch over our porch cracked, it barely missed me striking my shoulder. I was hurt pretty bad but nothing serious. Which was good as there were trees down everywhere keeping emergency vehicles out.

I learned a valuable lesson that day. Snow and ice is beautiful but it can be devastating in no time flat.

This is week 45 of the MFRW52weekblogchallenge. So check out the other authors most memorable day.

My Heart’s Not in It # MFRWauthor #blogchallenge #amwriting

It’s week 41 of the Marketing or Romance Writer Blog Challenge. This weeks topic is blogging inspiration. My post will be very short as I am not very inspired to blog.Truth be told, my heart’s not in it anymore. I never know what to write about that will draw readers. I have tried umpteen things but all a fail.

So my blogging inspiration is this MFRW challenge. I have managed all but one week and that was because my computer was broken and I fit it in the next week. I do post an occasional spotlight and review for a few friends releases. I hope soon to begin posting a teaser again once I get more of my story edited.

That’s my inspiration. what’s yours? Any tips to inspire me? now let’s go see what inspires the other bloggers.

What’s my favorite Seasons? Let me show ya #MFRWauthor #amwriting

It’s week 38 of the MRW 52 week blog challenge.  I think this week is one of my favorite topics. Seasons.  What is the Best Part of Each Season? Come let me show you!

I will start with fall since it’s right here and one of my very favorites.  I love the changing leaves, colors, pumpkins, scarecrows, decorations, sunflowers just to name a few things.

Did I mention all the awesome pumpkin flavors…pumpkin coffee, pie, truffles? Let’s not forget Apples…Apple crisp, Pie, apple dumplings and pecan is a big fall flavor too. Oh, I almost forgot sweet potatoes. MMMM

Fall also brings one of my favorite holidays

HALLOWEEN

I like winter too. Yes, I am one of the weird ones. I like cool weather. I like snow. ( i didn’t say I loved being out in it.) I like Christmas and all the lights and decorations. My Birthday is in winter.

 

I like Spring too. I like to see the flowers emerging, here the birds chirping see the squirrels frolicking and all the new life being born. The allergies I could live without. So I spent much of my spring looking out.

 

Summer, I really have to think about that. It is my least favorite month. It is too hot so I can’t get out much with my asthma. I guess I can say I like the fresh garden food, fruits, and veggies. I like to go on trips when we can afford to and this past summer I did enjoy the water park with my brother and his family.

 

I do like the fourth of July and Memorial Day cookouts.

these are the things I like best about the seasons. What are your favorites? let’s go see what the other bloggers like best!
