Orange...chicken

So I found this fabulous looking recipe for crock pot Chinese orange chicken with rice.

I hate it when you start a recipe, get half way through and then realize you are missing a major ingredient. Such as the "orange" in the "orange chicken".  It called for 1 cup of orange juice concentrate which I thought I had, but didn't. Step in can of orange Fanta. It's close enough, right? Cross your fingers for me. If not, it'll be a leftovers kind of night. :s


The joy of figuring out what's for dinner....

This weekend's impressive migraine meds stats:

Saturday
   - 4 Ibuprofen
   - Imitrex

Sunday
   - 2 Ibuprofen
   - 1 Oxycodin
   - 2 Amerge
   - 4 more Ibuprofen
   - 1 Promethazine (SLEeeeeeppp.........)
   - 2 Xtra strength Tylenol
   - 1 can Mountain Dew

This weekend was torture. Luckily Saturday's migraine left quickly and I was able to go to the Hodgson/Killpack family outing to Sugarhouse park which was really fun. Beautiful park, a nice breeze and a river to play in.  Sunday my head was pounding from 5am-10pm. After my 2nd round of drugs at 8pm I finally killed it. I hate wasted days! Stupid head of mine.

No one has ever made me feel more beautiful and loved than my husband does.

Lately I'm really hating what people are doing to ruin their lives. I just want to smack em' over the head and say "What do you think you're doing?!?!?".

The world is changing and going downhill, taking so many good people with it. It makes me so sad to see what friends and relatives are doing that will mess it all up, but they are oblivious to it. If anything, it makes me want to try harder at life and just pray for them, because that's all I can do.

Think about it people, are you doing what you're supposed to? Imagine looking at back your life if you died right now. What would you have done different? What can you do now to change that? It's never too late.
