More Pay to Play @ Netflix

Everyone likes Netflix but will they like it when it costs a little more per month. Everything gets more expensive and they are doing more original programming and getting the rights for more first run movies means passing the cost along to you and me.

This recipe combines my friend Deanna’s paprika chicken with a more traditional Hungarian chicken paprikash. It has become a new household favorite!

Tuscan Stew

We had this for dinner on Tuesday night and it was yummy. Leftovers with some simple ingredients make something good.

  • 3/4 to 1 lb chicken, pork, or beef, cooked and cut into bite-size chunks
  • 12 red potatoes, quartered
  • 4 oz baby carrots
  • 1 15 oz (or so) can tomato sauce
  • Salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and oregano to taste

Place vegetables and seasonings in covered skillet and add about 1/2 cup water (enough to cover the bottom of the pan). Cover and heat on medium heat until vegetables have softened. Arranged meat on top and stir in tomato sauce. Cover and place in oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. Serve with crusty bread for dipping!

Strawberry Pop Tarts and Peanut Butter

I think this is a bit of alright. Yeah it looks like food porn but if it’s wrong I don’t wanna be right.

One Gallon Donated!

10653411_10153171192388830_5278662353680834233_nWith today’s donation I have now given a gallon of blood over my lifetime. It takes 8 full draws to reach that milestone. Since working at a blood bank I have donated more than I did before. To me asking others to donate means that I should be willing to donate myself. Just setting a good example for others.

Anyway, I am happy to do this to help save 3 lives and to help make a further contribution to the organization that I love to work for.
