Tasty Tuesday

I thought I would share with you a recipe that I am using for dinner tonight. I haven’t made it yet, but it sounds like something we would like (well not the kids, but I’ll make them something else).

Chili-Lime Pork

1lb pork chops (I’m using bone in b/c thats what I have)
salt and pepper
1tsp chili powder
1TBS lime juice
1tsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp sugar

The pork chops are defrosting right now. Once they are defrosted I will combine all the ingredients and marinate for a couple hours and then cook them on the foreman grill.

I am so going to hell

This video is so funny!!

Seriously freaking out here

Like really freaking out.

As we pulled up to our house tonight, I saw what looked like (at first) a huge gray cat by the tree near the side of our house. I started to say “aww look at the kitty” when I realized it was a big ass raccoon. Now most of you are probably like “Um…so”, but to me, raccoon’s are the freakiest things out there. Just thinking about them get my heart beating fast, and not in that way like it does when I see Ben Affleck on tv without a shirt on. We’re talking panic attack way.

So I should probably back up and fill you all in as to why I have this fear of raccoons. A couple summers ago, I opened the door to walk out into our garage and saw a big bushy tail walking it’s way out of our garage. That big bushy tail was the talk of a raccoon. Now again, to most of you, that wouldn’t scare you, but let me tell you, my garage is a disaster. Those critters could be anywhere ready to pounce on me as I get my evening coke (the kind you drink people!). And then it didn’t help matters to have my mother tell me that they have nails that could rip you a part. Way to help with the anxiety mom.

Well this background story gets better. Did I mention yet that I was pregnant? Well I was. And being that I was 6 or so months pregnant, and carry my children high, I couldn’t breath, which made me not be able to sleep. So I came downstairs to see if sleeping in our recliner helped. It did at first, but then I heard this weird noise outside. I got up to see what it was and let me tell you, I pinched myself several times to make sure I wasn’t dreaming. In our backyard we had 6 baby raccoons playing on my son’s baby pool. And let me tell you, it was a really cool baby pool. It had a big slide and everything. Notice I said the word “had”. The stupid raccoons broke it as they played like mad on this thing.

For the rest of that summer, I freaked out at the thought of one of those things being in my garage. I wouldn’t go out there at all, I would yell at my husband when he left the door open to the house from the garage or left the garage door open…I basically had full on panic attacks about raccoons that summer. I got over it and never thought about it, until it all came rushing back this evening. And now I am back to being afraid to go out there. In fact, I just asked my husband to get my evening coke (remember, the kind you drink).

Damn raccoons.

The new 90210…

What do you think about it?

After the premier I couldn’t help but feel a little bored with it. However, watching it this week…I am being sucked in. Mainly because I want to know who fathered Kelly’s little boy LOL. Here are my theories:

  • It has to be either Dylan, Brandon, or Steve because she said on the show this week that they had a history in high school.
  • I can’t see it being Brandon. He always had this “sense of responsibility” about him that there is no way he would be that far away from his child.
  • Dylan is a strong possibility. On the series premier of the original 90210, it looked like Kelly and Dylan were going to get back together. But with Dylan’s history with his own father, could he really leave his son?
  • Steve is married…I can’t see him cheating on Janet, although he always had a thing for Kelly. I think I am talking myself out of it being Steve.

What do you think? Also do you get the feeling like they took the original series and are copying the story lines? Maybe they are using similar lines and things the main family does, for the old fans…but to me it is a little weird.

Bubbles EVERY where!

I thought she was sitting in the family room with her brother while I cooked dinner. Well I thought wrong. Way wrong. Dan is out of town tonight and I am scrambling around to get dinner cooked, baths, PJs on etc all at the same time. Well Bella had other plans.

She ran upstairs while I was getting dinner ready. While I was standing over the sink rinsing corn on the cob, I heard a noise like someone was in the bathroom upstairs–I know, this isn’t sound good huh? I go up there to find my almost 2 year old naked, standing in the shower, covering her body from head to toe and I mean HEAD TO TOE with shampoo.

Luckily she was in the shower so the mess was contained to there and it made rinsing her easy. Well almost easy. Miss Bella really got a lot of soap in her private area and I literally had to aim the shower head up between her legs to get all the shampoo rinsed out. She first looked at me like “what the hell are you doing?” and then she started laughing and yelling “bubbles”! And yes…there were a lot of bubbles!
