Need For a Change...

 This weekend has shown me a new light about myself and what consumes my life right now...MY Solider...It doesn't have to be that way...I can still hold him close to my heart without sounding like I he is the ONLY thing in my life...I"d like to start a new thread about US...not him...not whos better than who...Just about us girls...what we did today...what we are stydying in class...or doing at work lately...We deserve to lighten up...but don't have to do it by stomping on eachother or arguing whos better than who.....So here was my day

I went to work and got the kids off to school, I'm an Executive House Manager...I take care of two kids, a big house and two busy parents...Realized that I had fogotten to make it to the grocery store on Friday and had nothing to pack in lunches....OH well....after the grocery store I managed to finish a Teepee I started last week for the girls, they are 8 and 5...I tend to talk about them a lot. I have been taking care of them for 3 years and can't believe that Jaden, 5, is almost out of kidergarden... When mom brought the girls home from school, Madelyn, 8 acutally helped me with dinner...she had fun setting the table and stirring the rice and veggies for our Fajita Buffet....anyone want recipes let me know...I am a culinary school graduate....

 

How was your day...???

I wish you could make it with milk...I had someone try it with powdered milk..but it came out grainy....you could emulsify it in an emersion blender....haha technical culinary terms..I like to throw those at Dale when he uses technical gun terms around me....or makes fun of me for trying to talk his language.....shows him hes not the only one with technical terminology......anyway..it's not a recipe I cook all the time...but just good comfort food....Now I'll give you a dessert recipe to go with hit....anyone like Chocolate???<br />
<br />
I box devils food cake mix prepared to package directions.<br />
<br />
Pour batter in a 13x9 cake pan....set aside<br />
<br />
<br />
Mix together:<br />
<br />
2 small boxes chocolate instant pudding<br />
2 cups milk<br />
1/3 cup sugar<br />
<br />
pour over cake batter and bake till set at 350 degrees...Magically the pudding falls to the bottom and the cake bakes on top...quiet a surprise on the the bottom....mmmmm<br />
<br />
I like to top it with fresh raspberry compote:<br />
<br />
1 Bag frozen raspberries<br />
1/2 cu sugar<br />
<br />
cook on stove till syrup forms....<br />
<br />
<br />
ENJOY LADIES...

I'm so excited...He finally emailed me....phew...Just when you start to give up hope and think that he wants to go back to being single....cause he hasn't emailed or called...he throws you a bone to remind you of how much he loves and misses you...Yeah!!!! I'm smiling ear to ear...totally makes me forget about how bitchy my boss was right before I left work....<br />
<br />
<br />
How was your day Girls??? I need good stories....<br />
<br />
btw, my finger is still killing me...she knicked my finget in two places last night...but at least she did a bang up job....don't you love it when you find a good nail salon...Dale sure loves french tips on me.....hahah

The recipe does sound yummy! Can you make it with milk instead of heavy cream? He is pretty health conscious and so the high calorie content of the pasta with the cream he wouldn't go for...<br />
<br />
Sorry she's sick! Make sure you stop on the way home to get some immunity boosters for yourself: Emergen-C packets, Zycam, Echinacea, Golden Seal, even an Odwalla C-Monster...just anything to help you fight it off!<br />
<br />
And I agree about today's children's TV!

By the way...say a prayer for me that I don't get the flu...Jaden is home sick wtih a fever of 104 today...we had to give her a cool bath and she cried the whole time...Now i'm spending the morning in bed with her watching horrible re runs of iCarly...i really hate this show....The way kids act these days....I don't remember acting like that...

I"m going to give my ulimate favorite recipe..I made it for Dale last June...the first time I ever got the chance to cook for him..He called it putty in my hand chicken....Ever since he ate it..He was putty in my hands....haha<br />
<br />
Start with...<br />
<br />
<br />
4 Flattened Chicken Breasts...boneless skinless<br />
1 clove of garlic<br />
1 teaspoon of Cayenne pepper<br />
2-3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil<br />
2-3 Tablespoons of Dijon Mustard<br />
1 small can diced green chilis<br />
1 pint Heavy Cream<br />
Cooked Linguini for 4 people<br />
<br />
<br />
Heat olive oil in pan, add garlic and pepper, sautee chicken till done...Transfer chicken to plate to be kept warm...To same pan add Dijon Mustard, green chilis and heavy cream....Cook till reduced by 1/2 then add chicken....Continue cooking till sauce is reduced and thickened...Could take 15-20 minutes...Serve over hot pasta...Enjoy girls.....<br />
<br />
to reheat leftovers DON"T microwave...it will seperate the cream in to a gross mess...reheat slowly in pan with a little milk added to pan....

Oh also I think it'd be great to do a recipe exchange on here...I could be the one to start the post, but not tonight, lol! =)

Good idea =)<br />
<br />
My day was filled with the battles I fight in my profession...I'm an Advocate for juvenile offenders in a major city in CA. Our youth are court involved for everything from minor drug offenses to assault and battery. My day was spent at the high school in the morning, then helping one of our youth transfer into a GED program run by the community college, then on to court for ten of our youth. Court was rough today, one student is having a hard time trying to get himself together, and I'm trying to walk the very very fine line between getting him the support he needs from the probation department, school, and court and at the same time trying not to say too much about what he's actually dealing with because this will result in him getting sent to yet another group home -which is the wrong solution for him at this point. <br />
<br />
I LOVE what I do, but lord can it be frustrating at times!!!

wow that is a great idea. = )<br />
<br />
today.. well classes were cancelled because my town got 9 inches of snowww ! yayy. so i did laundry and homework than i went with a bunch of my friends to go snow tubing. it was soo cold but so fun. than i came home and did more homework and laundry..it was a boring lazy day but we all need those every once in a while

We should...is what I meant to type....sorry....Well girls I'm exhausted...and I got roped into boot camp with my boss....Cancun is around the corner...

I took so many online classes... Psychology was the worst...Good thing I took with my sister...We HELPED each other out all the time...<br />
<br />
Should we all still have or own lives...our own friends....we all know our hearts are with him....even when we are getting our nails done or getting a facial...or enjoying a cup of coffee with a close friend....

Awsome about the nursing program..My mom has been an RN for 30 years...she delivers babies at a big hospital here in St.Louis...I wish i could hear form Dale...It's been two weeks since he called and Friday was his last email...enough about that though....after I got off work and fed the work family...I splurged and got my nails done....she kinda knicked my middle finger though...kinda hurts...

lol Great Idea :) Today I went to school I had a chemistry class and then I can home and went to my CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) class & we practiced feeding each other meals, I know it sounds ridiculous lol, but we're going to be doing a lot of that so I guess we needed practice :P I came home and got a wonderful letter from my soldier and I've been happy ever since :) yay Sadly thats pretty much been my day so far lol, I'm probably going to go to dinner with some friends soon :)
