7 Quick Takes #19

7_quick_takes_sm

1.

I didn’t make a huge announcement that I was pregnant, so I’m not going to make a huge announcement that I am no longer pregnant.   We had a miscarriage last week.   And if that wasn’t crappy enough, I lost my keys while in the ER AND a book that I was reading so that I could review it.

2.

We are doing okay.   By which I mean, me.  Bones is okay as long as I don’t lose it.   I seem to have a great amount of peace with it.   Will it hit me hard later?   Maybe.   I guess only time will tell.

3.

I had a great time at a twitter party last Saturday with Once a Month Mom & even won something!  I got a Gerber prize pack.  No idea what’s in it, but if I can’t use it, I’ll give it to the Pregnancy Care Center.   I’m sure they will be able to use it if I can’t.

4.

I love blogger giveaways.   The odds are SOOOOO much better than say, the Lotto.   And they are free, so yeah, why not?

5.

I have been super busy, like to the tune of 7 washed loads of laundry sitting in every laundry basket and hamper I OWN, not put away.   Bones & his business partner are splitting up the business and I have been helping.   I’ve created all the content for the website and I’m working on the marketing materials/plan.   Busy, busy, busy.

6.

I love Lil’ Bits curly blonde hair and dimples.   And her laugh.   She is such a joy to me!

7.

Got any good recipes for Chicken?   That’s what is in the fridge and I would like to use some before I pack the rest in the freezer :).   B/S breasts.   Anyone?

  1. [...] had to push back Be Holy because, well, I lost it when I went to the ER a few weeks back, I think.   I have to look around more.   The rest I pushed out to next month [...]

    Jen,
    I just thought you should know your google ad’s on your sidebar linked to sites for the Morning after pill and Abortion. :( It also had sites for adoption and such but those two disturbed me and I thought you might like to know.

    Finally got around to doing the 7 quick takes myself! Chicken Recipes… hmm. I always like Chicken tortilla soup:
    32oz chicken stock
    1 or two cans diced/crushed mexican style tomatoes
    1 can of corn
    about 2 cups of water
    1 bay leaf
    2 garlic cloves minced
    1 small onion chopped
    1/8 tsp red pepper
    chili powder to taste
    salt and pepper to taste
    1 or 2 cooked skinless boneless chicken breasts cut into small pieces
    –put everything but the chicken into a large pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer for 5 min or so (time not crucial). Add chicken and simmer for 10 min more. Serve with grated cheese, tortilla chips, and sour cream.

    Variations: we seem to always add some salsa to this too when cooking it, Rob likes it with tabasco sauce and lots of red pepper, me not so much. I do like it with a small can of mild chopped green chilis or with beans. It’s a pretty customizable recipe to what you have on hand.

  5. Sorry about the loss of your baby. That’s hard! I like blogging giveaways too! I haven’t won anything in a while, but I’m wearing a pair of KEEN shoes that I won in a giveaway, isn’t that cool?

    I love to cook with chicken. Something easy: mix the cooked chicken( cut in pieces) with 1 cup of salsa and 1 can of cream of mushroom soup and 1 can of milk. Layer the bottom of a casserole dish with torn tortillas. Add the chicken mixture on that and cheese over the whole thing. Cook for 1 hour or until bubbly at 350/ Serve over brown rice: yummy!
