Today was just... Wednesday. Sure they banned gay couples from purchasing a marriage license in Maine, eh so what's new?

I did write to the good folks at & told em I really couldn't support them anymore unless they called for actual repealing of all marital laws. Otherwise even if they legalize gay marriage, aren't single people going to remain financially unequal even though they consume less resources?

Wednesday was just Wednesday. Nothing exciting.

Even dinner was not much to talk about. Chicken w/ pepper sauce. It said sweet but I disagree that it was sweet...

It wasn't bad, want the recipe?

2 chicken breasts, beat down
1/2 cup o flour
10 leaves of cilantro
2 yellow/orange 'sweet' peppers
2 TBsp of olive oil
1 cup lo sodium chicken broth
7 oz diced tomatoes
Salt, pepper
Rice - optional

- Mix flour, salt n pepper together;
- coat chicken with flour
- swirl oil in pan, throw in chicken
- dice up the peppers, mince up the cilantro, drain maters
- after chicken browns, throw in everything else cept rice
- bring to a boil, then cut it off, let it cool, thicken just a hair
- serve over rice

Not bad but I was out of diced tomatoes, had to use rotel. That killed the sweet but sure did spice it up!!

So here's to hoping for a more exciting Thursday!

Nitey nite!

Moving on...PASTA!

Let's get through all this real quick: Surgery on pause, trying to work out/ eat better, joined Team Poynter, fell off that wagon, working from modified Poynter plan, job changing signicantly, Ed lost job, Ed found new job, and we resigned from our church. Some ups, some downs, it's a wonder I'm not smoking 3 packs of cigarettes a day, but I'm not. Doing pretty good, and so is Ed.

So now I'm just trying to eat healthier, move more, love more, and have more patience with people.

With that in mind, I offer a cool lil recipe I found & reworked:


3 chicken breasts, cubed up
3 handfuls of baby spinach, chopped
6 fresh Basil leaves
4 cloves of garlic
8 ounces of four cheese ravioli pasta
3 TBsp olive oil
1/3 cup of pine nuts
Salt, Pepper, whatever you want

- Start boiling the water for the pasta
- Swirl the olive oil in the skillet, cook the chicken, salt it pepper it, and I Mrs. Dashed mine .. Tomato basil dash. Do not drain. Leave on low low heat.
- Throw in the pine nuts with the chicken.
- Cook the pasta, garlic cloves, dash of salt, few drops of olive oil in boiling water. Drain.
- Throw the basil and spinach in with chicken. Toss it around.
- Add in the ravioli with the chicken mix. Fold in.

I also grated some asiago cheese over top; you can add whatever you want!
