These 9 hour days at work are getting to me. I can't seem to get my act together plus PMS & all that!! Ugghhhhh

I took the Honey Lemon chicken out of the freezer for dinner tonight, was really good, it's a keeper here!!
Honey Lemon Chicken Marinade
4 chicken breasts, boneless & skinless
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup honey

In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, lemon juice and honey, stirring well. Put chicken in a ziploc bag or freezer container and pour sauce over top. Refrigerate for about 1 hr, turning every 15-20 minutes. Place container or bag in freezer.

To cook:
Thaw chicken in refrigerator over night. Remove chicken from marinade and barbeque on the grill, or cook in the oven at 350F for 35-45 minutes (time will vary depending on chicken) until juices run clear and thermometer registers 165F.
I used cooked chicken breasts & just heated in the microwave & put over rice. Yummmmmmmmmm

Table Runner from Hello!!

I can not believe all the grief this table runner caused!! I can't tell you how many times the blocks were taken apart?? LOL First it was I used the wrong color green than it was because I put them on upside down or realized the side pieces were not all the background color! Ughhh then they would not line up just like on the points when the red border is not lined up still. I tell ya Oh crap soon became way worse & the blocks looked really pretty sailing up in the air!! Seam ripper got quite the work out!

I'm a cooking fool!! LOL

I've been a cooking fool this morning! I took out a cut up chicken last night & it's in the oven. I have a pot of seasoned green beans going & a small pot of lima beans too. I made beef & broccoli, honey lemon chicken, plus a pot of sauce. All this is for the freezer. To make it easy during the week. I just pulled out a pork loin too!
I found this great site

So been play around on there!

I feel like I've been gone forever!1
I forgot to tell you what happened yesterday?? My brains are scrambled! Plus it was hubby's birthday Wednesday. I got him a older laptop & spent a lot of time on it last weekend to get it all updated, plus anti virus, set up his email in outlook. Then I signed him up for a bunch of birthday clubs & printed out all the coupons for him!
Well after my 9:00 haircut DH said let's take your truck up the street. So we go up the street & they are closed, mechanic quit??
So we cross back over & go to this other place they want 130 bucks. So we go to 2 more places & ones higher & the other one has no one there to give prices. So DH said lets go get something to eat. We meet at Hardees, he goes to order & I borrow his phone cause I forgot mine. I call Joker to see if he knows somebody that's not gonna over charge. He said if you get the pads I'll do it on Sunday for nothing!! yippie So DH comes with the food & I tell him. He's like cool!! So then our Pastor come in & comes over to say Hi & what's up & all that. DH asks him where he takes his car for repairs. He asked what we needed done, he tells DH to get the pads & to bring it by his house at 12:30 & him & his brother will do it!! I was about in tears!! DH gets home about 2 & said he was going back to the Pastors house. He said the Pastor's house had mold growing on it & was going to power wash it for him!! So everybody is happy!!
I did my other 2 haircuts & then got the binding on the downey quilt & got it washed & dried. Need to get the label on it!


Wahoo I won Pat's 500 posts giveaway!! I received my treasures yesterday!! She sent some great gifts.
