Waste Not!

I hate to waste and one thing I find goes to waste is the excess chicken seasoning left over after shaking a chicken leg. Being single, there is too much seasoning in a packet. So I bought a few boxes of seasoning, took one of the bags, filled it with all the seasoning packets from boxes, then sealed it in a glass canister.. Voila!.. Now I just take a tablespoon at a time to shake my one chicken piece in for a meal and bake!

Dysfunctional Started The Day You Were Born

I come across this quote and wanted to share it… wow, it gives such a great visual of being born into a world of dysfunction… in so many forms…

“The story of my birth that my mother told me went like this: “When you were coming out I wasn’t ready yet and neither was the nurse. The nurse tried to push you back in, but I shit on the table and when you came out, you landed in my shit.”

If there ever was a way to sum things up, the story of my birth was it.”
