Currently I am keeping the following in my thoughts &  prayers:

-----That no further doctor's visit's are needed for a loved one.
-----A sibling that is extremely ill. :-(
-----The ongoing situation with North Korea.
-----I need to be in better physical shape and beat the symptoms of several thyroid problems. I am trying to rid myself of Chronic Fatigue, send Hashimoto's Disease into remission and lose gained weight. That my appointment in a couple of months goes well...and upcoming blood tests.
-----Someone I used to know that committed crime and is now incarcerated. I am hoping that they come forward with any truths that may help victims and that they decide to go down the path of rehabilitation. I think that in this situation it would be great if the victims could somehow see that rehabilitation was occurring.


This post is in no particular order. Prayer/thought requests just go to the top as I hear more about what is going on. If you can think of a way to help these people, PLEASE do so. This post will be second-from-the-top during the midst of an emergency (such as an Amber Alert).

Note: I would not advise linking to this post...you will wind up with a broken link each time I have to change the post-dating to keep this a Vigil at the Top.

-----Bourbon-Bacon Slaw. Hmmm.

On this month's menu, thus far.....

-----Chicken Piccata Soup.
~~~I am adding more chicken. Husband likes his dishes to have meat and lean meat is supposed to be a part of my diet.
~~~I almost always use jarred minced garlic because getting the fresh garlic minced is such a hassle.
~~~I generally substitute yellow onions as shallots are pretty expensive where we live.
~~~We use capers so frequently that I keep a couple of jars in the fridge. :-)

-----Creamy Lemon Chicken Picatta Meatballs

-----Husband and Kids might LOVE this Peanut Butter Cup Spread for their bagels!

Last year's words of wisdom from Preschooler:
"If he was here, I would call the police on this pretend phone."
-on the Devil
Also said:
"Respect your Mom and Dad. If you do not respect your parents, God will not give you any respect."

Listening To.....
