Table for 7Tuesday Tastings

Grilled chicken, cheesy potatoes, hot dogs…OH MY


Hubby was in caveman mode as he grilled….wish I had gotten a picture of that, next time I will.

  • thin sliced, skinless, boneless chicken breasts (marinated in goya seasoning)
  • hot dogs




  • I washed, cut, and marinated small red potatoes in goya and table mix seasoning
  • baked in the oven at 350 for about thirty minutes
  • when done, I let them cool off on stove top and sprinkled shredded mozzarella cheese on top


It was a BIG hit…EVERYONE ate their dinner…

Don’t let Balboa’s sad and hungry face fool you. He eats well around here. He gets not only dog food, but a little bit of hot dog, chicken, and potato. He would eat till his tiny stomach explodes.CAM05782

Turkey kielbasa, rice and beans, veggies, and salad:
  • Kielbasa sauteed in cast iron skillet
  • veggies sauteed in juices left over from kielbasa
  • Zatarins rice and beans mix
  • salad kit…though added the dressing after the pic…used only a little dressing.

salad big dish

Dino…Ate ALL the carrots, kielbasa (even asked for more thinking it was a hot dog), and
had 1 1/2 green beans

Hubby…was too stuffed to eat…maybe he’ll eat it later…he’s just as picky as Dino.

Mommy…I LOVED It…As you can see from my plate I gave myself smaller portions in an attempt to eat healthier. After I finished my dinner, I had more salad with dressing on the side.



Question for all you mommies out there….Do you pack lunches for school/daycare OR buy school at lunch? I know it might be easier in fall (when I return to work full time to just buy lunches) 

Sometimes I give him hummus and crackers/ carrots, cold cut sandwich, or cheese and crackers…but it gets boring since he is a picky eater and often doesn’t eat what I give him. I provide him fruits, veggie sticks, pretzels, goldfish crackers, crackers/cheese, and hummus as snacks.

I know it saves money, but I feel I am buying more just to make lunch. I rather provide Dino with healthy snacks for school and buy him the lunch at daycare. They provide (pizza, chicken fingers with broccoli, macaroni with butter, baked zitit, mac and cheese, or grilled cheese) Usually he likes the chicken fingers, pizza, and buttered macaroni.

  @lilahbility suggested this week’s list…Things that are completely impractical.

Okay, I just couldn’t think of anything…even though I know I could name a million items every day. So I asked hubby for his ideas for this list. He not only gave me a list he even added reasons why. I wish I had taped him as he went through it and explained the reasons why…he got angrier with each item, LOL


pocket watch between wrist watches and cell phones, who needs them

empty baskets annoys him to no end

expensive coffee machine with our percolator who needs the fancy stuff

cassette player/CD player we all use iPod now

tube TV takes up way too much space

camera now that we all have cameras in our phones

cotton hoodie no protection from the rain, rather have a cotton lining with a polyester shell

designer clocks with no numbers want to break them

grandfather clock waste of space

EVERY “As seen on TV product” otherwise known as fancy junk





I normally post about meals on Tuesdays…but I thought today would be a good day for a change. Collage2

Sometimes Hubby will ask me to do something with almost no explanation or detail. I then have to pull the information out of him like I’m investigating a crime. At least I will be prepared for when Dino is a teenager and doesn’t want to talk.

Hubby: “Can you scan something for me?”

Me: “Sure, put it on the scanner, the top near the arrow and let me know when you’re ready. Sitting on the couch waiting, and waiting, and waiting….“Did you do it yet?”

Hubby: “Yes.” thanks for telling me

Me: “Is it a document?”

Hubby: “No.”

Me: “What is it?”

Hubby: “A card.”

Me: “What type of card?” It could be an actual greeting card, business card, or index card….who knows with this man

Hubby: “A license.”

Me: Your license?” 

Hubby: “No.”

Me: “What type of license?”

Hubby: “Boy scout license.”

Me: “Are there any pictures?”

Hubby: “Yes.”

Me: “Are there words?”

Hubby: “Yes.”

Me: “Okay, I’ll scan it as a jpeg then.”

Hubby: “What?”


I finally got it done, I could have explained to hubby that I needed to know that information to get the best scan…but that would have been over his head. He did after all need me to scan and email it to him. For those of you wondering, No I did not get up off the couch…I finally sat down after washing dishes and cleaning and was not going to get up again.
