The Greek and Indian Meet and Have a Scrumptious Love Child

That's the only way I can describe this meal. I call it Tzatziki Curry Chicken. Bascially one day I had forgotten that I used all my yogurt for my curry chicken making my tzatziki the day before and figured why not try it. It was crazy yummy!

So here we go!


Grate a cucumber and put it inside a few paper towels to soak up the water. Squeeze it if you have to, to get out the excess.

Garlic (about 3ish cloves-but I like mine potent feel free to use less)
Fresh Mint (around a hand full)

Add this to one of the largish containers of plain Greek yogurt, or non-Greek yogurt if you can't find it, or you can make your own like Meghan Conrad. I keep meaning to try it, and I keep forgetting and eating my starter. LOL

Mix everything together well and add salt to taste then put it in your fridge. The longer Tzatziki has to sit and mingle its flavor the better it is.

The chicken curry part:

Cut up in largish chunks:
4 chicken breasts
2 green peppers
1 onion

Heat your pan and add a l…

Yeah, no, just no

Finn: *Pointing at my coffee* Juice?
Me: No, it's Mommy's coffee. *points to the juice bottle in his hand* That's juice.
Finn: *Looking contemplative* Coffee good!
Me: Yes, dear, I like coffee. Is your juice good?
Finn: *looking insulted* Ugh! No!

Well tough luck, buddy! You aren't going to get my coffee!

Ornery Children

My husband told me about this conversation, and I just had to share.

Finn: Daddy, monkey! hehehe
Nicky: Daddy! *laughing hysterically* He called you a monkey!
Bryon: No, he didn't. It just sounded like monkey.
Finn: Dada - *makes a very accurate monkey sound*
Bryon: You little bum!

*giggles hysterically*

I'm Angry and I have to say this somewhere

This Article has seriously p'd me off!

Normally I wouldn't bring up religion or abortion, but I just had to say something about this. I will say briefly that I am very uncomfortably pro-choice. I believe a woman has a right to end a pregnancy if she feels she needs to for whatever reason. I don't think, however, that I would be able to do the same, but I refuse to judge others who do since I've never been in a situation that required I make that decision and hope never to be. That being said here is what happened...

A woman was 11 weeks pregnant with her 5th child. She got very sick and was rushed to the hospital. It just so happened to be a Catholic hospital. The doctors told her that her risk of mortality was "nearly 100%" if she continued the pregnancy. It was something called right heart failure which I've never heard of and know nothing about, but I'm sure the doctors wouldn't have told her that risk if it weren't the case. She had…

Chicken and Veggie Fried Rice

Jenn asked and Jenn shall receive. :-D A little forewarning here. There is NOTHING healthy about my version of fried rice. Warning issued.

Cook while you're readying the veggies:
Two Cups Rice
Shred in the food processor or cut very small:
large onioncelerycarrotsgarlic
No exact measures of these. Just make more than you'd think you need since they shrink a bunch when you cook them.

Melt about half a stick of butter in the bottom of your frying pan and add all the veggies cooking until they get good and soft.

2-3 chicken breasts cut thinCook until the chicken is done, then take it all out of the pan and put it in a bowl.

Melt another half a stick of butter in the pan and add your cooked rice. Stir that around until it starts to brown just a little. Then push the rice to the sides and add:
2 eggsTo the middle of the pan and scramble them up a bit. Once it starts to get almost done stir the rice from the sides in with the rice then add the veggies and chicken that you put in t…

Absence from Internet Awesomeness

You may have noticed that I've been absent from the internet for much of the last two weeks. Or then again you might not have...

My in-laws came to visit from Denmark. First there was the mass cleaning before they got here. Then their actual visit. Then the mass cleaning after they left. (Which isn't actually finished yet, but I'm getting close.)

We did much shopping (prices are sooo much cheaper here than over there.) My FIL got new glasses which arrived literally within minutes of our leaving for the airport. There was much rejoicing.

I took them to Terra Studios, because I'd always wanted to go see it and had heard that it was lovely. It was! Nicky nicknamed it the Magical Forest. At least the trail part of it. I've got to get back there when it's actually open so I can buy one of their pink bluebirds of happiness.

We went to Branson, MO, where we stayed in a pretty darn nifty hotel. We spent two days at Silver Dollar City.

We also saw the Dixie Stampe…
