Update again about my husbands burns


First I’ll start by saying that every picture I post, I ask hubby’s permission first. I don’t want him to feel uncomfortable. At one point he was so uncomfortable he didn’t even want to go into public places. So…I try to respect that. He’s totally on board with me posting this.

Obviously you see that I have NO recipe to post tonight. I do want to rehash my turkey recipe. Honestly, this is my favorite. I made this for Thanksgiving this year. I’m just crazy about it. I’ve tried SO many different turkey recipes and this is the bomb. Try it out pleaseeee!

Back to hubby. Obviously, you can see that he’s hanging ornaments. It was such a task for him. I had to find the biggest looped ornaments that I could find. It was just horrible. He would get discouraged and I’d have to back him up, give him a talk, and we’d try again. We go back on Monday to see the doctor, after two weeks of not having to go. It’s such a break. We were going every Monday. I’m hoping when we go back it’s either every two weeks or longer this time.
Anyway, here’s your update for now. I’m promising I’m getting back to the cooking soon. Thank you everyone for staying and supporting me. This has been horrible for our family, but we’re so blessed for the good things we have.

Ham, Rice and Broccoli Bake


It’s been a while. I’m sorry. I can give you a good update though. I think life is finally looking up. My hubby just finished what we’re pretty sure is his last surgery. About two weeks ago, we went to have a surgery. It was so hard on him because they originally said that he’d have to have this ugly procedure done that would leave him looking much different. He really struggled to try to accept this fact.

I have to say, it’s like some kind of miracle. They told me a week before that his hand hadn’t had a lot of progress. That was Monday. The next Monday we were supposed to have an appointment, but since we had to be there again on Wednesday and it’s a 3 hour drive, we opted to just skip that appointment. Then Sunday night I noticed it looked different. On Monday, it looked even better. Tuesday I thought Oh man…we might be going in the right direction. Finally, on Wednesday night I was like oh man this is a real possibility we might be able to just go for skin grafting. WE WERE ABLE TO!

He ended up with more damage to tendons than we would like, but honestly, I can’t complain with what we have been left with. I’m still upset by how things are, but I think it’ll take me some time to accept that this is our new life. I think that’s pretty common. We have a great support group that has been reaching out to us and helping us. I’d have been lost without them. It’s funny how life works.

I’m hoping I’m back ya’ll. I’m trying really hard to be active. I just have time that I can do stuff and then I have times I can’t. We’re getting ready to list our house, because the steps in our house are difficult for Michael to climb sometimes. It’s a hassle ya’ll. I can barely keep my house clean, get my school work done, and get all of hubby and Coop’s needs met. I think I’m fighting a losing battle.

I Wash, You Dry had a recipe I wanted to try, so we gave it a go. It’s good. Next time I’m going to try using broccoli cheese soup.

  • 2 (10oz) cans Cheese Soup
  • 2 and 2/3 cups water
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked Jasmine rice
  • 3 cups broccoli florets (I used fresh, but you could substitute with frozen)
  • 2 cups chopped ham
  • 1 cup shredded colby jack cheese

Mix everything, but cheese. Cover with foil and bake one hour on 350. Cover with cheese and allow to bake until bubbly. Enjoy!

Review: Roland Parmesan Risotto


I made this. I always see these different pasta things in the aisles at the supermarket and I think hmm…easy peasy–let’s do it. We do. This is one of those things we’re glad we tried it. It’s really creamy. It tastes good. I wish it’d have a deeper parmesan taste, but you can do that by adding a bit of your own parmesan if you choose, but it’s good without it too. In fact, my son said mom this is good stuff, what is it. He was told and then he says well let’s buy this again! It cooks at a normal time. It’s not quick, but it’s not so crazy that whenever you cook it ends up leaving you with chewy noodles. It’s perfect. We like it!


Braised Chicken with Lemon and Olives Recipe — Lebanese Directory — My Meals are on Wheels

[ad_1] Use any olives with pits that you like; the Italian Castelvetrano bright green olives are sweeter than most olives, with a meaty bite. Chicken breast, legs, and/or wings will also work here, but white meat won’t be as succulent. This recipe is based on David Tanis’ in The New York Times. Serves: 3 to […] […]

Beef Fajitas


I can’t promise you that I’ll write everyday or wont miss a week here and there…but I’m trying. Thank you all for the patience and kindness you’ve given me. I’m super behind in reading your messages, but I’m working on it! I made this recipe out of desperation and searching 100 different fajita recipes, because my been fajitas always taste like crap.

I’ve been trying to make meals at home as much as possible. Some of the meals I’ve been making are things I’ve already posted here. I have had no time to make meal plans, because things are always so chaotic. We’re actually going to burn clinic once a week right now. We’re also scheduled for surgery again this week on Thursday. I’m going to try my very best to get back into a good routine. I guess we will see what happens. I can’t wait until this is all over!
