Southwest Chicken Noodles PLUS April FOTW

I love quick and easy meals and if I can prepare it all in one pan, or close then that makes it even better!
Try this spin on the classic chicken and noodles.
4 boneless skinless chicken tenders
spices (1 tsp each)
egg noodles, about half a bag
1 cup salsa
1/2 cup shredded cheese

saute chicken with salt, pepper, paprika and chili powder sprinkled on. Dice up and set aside. Boil water and cook your egg noodles according to the package. Drain. Add 1 cup of salsa, the diced chicken, stir well and sprinkle with 1/2 cup of shredded cheese. Another simple but delicious meal.

My son and I are at a local mom and pop pizza joint. We order an appetizer of meatballs. I see it says "3". I'm thinking maybe we need to order 2 but we stick with one. Plus I have a salad and we have pizza on it's way. So the waitress brings them out and HOLY MACKEREL these things are HUGE! THREE will feed a small family! They are literally the size of softballs. I looked at them and,( well, it just fell out of my head through the nasal cavity and out my mouth) DAMN those things are HUGE what'd you do cut them off a DINOSAUR?? The waitress was not amused but the guy at the table next to us covered his friend in tea! LOL Yep shot right out his nose he laughed so hard.
Guy walks up to the rental counter and says " hi how are you?"
Agent replies " frustrated "
He says " good good have a nice day" and walks off. 
I can only assume since it was an elderly man that he didn't understand what she said or he wasn't listening.
 Picked up a passenger in this morning. She told me she had applied for section 8 housing. And when she went to look at it she refused. the black area  yes to black and I'm black. She started laughing.  I started laughing. she said sometimes the ghetto is to ghetto . Oh the things that people say. 

My son works retail and a customer comes in, she walks up to the register and says "if you were to see me in a club wearing this lip stick color would you want to F me? He said the other cashier, who is a gay guy looks at her and says "it wouldn't matter what color lip stick you were wearing, I'm gay and so no I would not want to F you" my son is the closing manager, walks over and says "Hey Will let me talk to you when you're done with this customer" 
OMGosh, are people REALLY that forward?? sheez!

Brown Sugar Blackberry Cinnamon Rolls

Sometimes you get up and just don't want bacon and eggs. Okay, well sometimes you wake up wanting bacon but not eggs. The craving, hankering or down right lustful desire for something sweet hits you like a ton of bricks and you must, yes must, answer that call.
I hit the store early one Sunday morning, made a few purchases and returned to my kitchen.
What did I do?

4 TBSP Brown sugar 
2 TBSP butter
8 pkg Pillsbury cinnamon rolls
6 tsp blackberry jam
In a 8-9 inch Pie baking dish melt butter. Sprinkle brown sugar. Drop jam in spots where you will place your rolls. Place roll cinnamon side down on jam. Bake 14 minutes at 400 degrees. Invert on a plate. Use icing from pkg. enjoy!

Good Googly Goo!!! FANfreakintastic!!

Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Wraps AND Use Your Words

I made these wraps one night and fell in love with the ease and deliciousness. Check out these super quick, easy and flavor packed wraps.

Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Wrap
Use your favorite chicken tenders or prepare your own. Coat them with your favorite BBQ sauce. Take a tortilla and place the tender on, top with pineapple tidbits, red onion or green onions, shredded lettuce and enjoy! Super simple and delicious.

Walking around, feeling under the weather. Totally over whelmed by life and circumstances beyond my control. Inside feelings are spilling over. All around me people carrying on like they have no worries. Beside myself with worry and grief.
One minute I feel grand and the next like a train has run me over. My emotions are all over the place. I think it may be due to lack of sleep, worry over finances and loneliness. Being single is not what makes me lonely. My loneliness comes from not having someone to talk to and that is nothing new. Even years of being married I found myself with the same feelings. Yes, I am baring my soul and showing you my insides. They are not pretty I admit.
Feelings of inadequacies, inferiority, insecurities, unloved, unwanted, lonely, desires that one day someone might be my everything. I've given up on that. There is no such thing, it is all a fairy tale but if you are blessed enough to have it, count yourself among the minority not majority.
This too shall pass I'm told and maybe so. I pray one day I look back at this post and can smile while sharing it with one I love. AND if not, I will continue to love my children, grandchildren, family, friends and my sweet kitty Beau.

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

At the end of this post you’ll find links to the other blogs featuring this challenge. Check them all out, see what words they got and how they used them.
