OMG! i just made the yummiest dinner ever! it was really simple to make too! since i was making it for just me and hubby i used:

– 2 skinless chicken breasts cut into cubes or strips

– 1 red pepper

– 1 small to medium onion

– 3 or 4 tablespoons honey

– olive oil

– salt to taste

– pepper to taste

– 1 teaspoon oregano

– 1/2 tablespoon parsley

– 1/2 flour

– 1/4 cup water

– 2 cups prepared rice

Now to make it, cut up your onion and pepper into bite size pieces…or whatever size you feel like. I sauted the onions then the red peppers each by themselves in a small amount of olive oil to make sure they were cooked enough, you want them tender but not soft as you are going to put them back in, remove from pan. Add more olive oil to pan and add your chicken, add your salt, pepper, oregano, and parsley and cook in your flavors a bit. Drizzle your honey on the chicken and stir in. After your chicken is fully cooked add your onions and red peppers back in. Saute together for a little longer then add your water, once heated add your flour making sure to blend in immediatly. Once everything is fully cooked your done! Just throw on a bed of rice and you have a yummy meal!

Now to finish eating mine!!!

for this second day off in a row i plan on driving down to my sisters, which is about 45 minutes away. Hopefully to bring sewing stuff and my machine with to do some sewing crafts together…but am waiting to know what time will be ok to come down…probably call her at like 9:30 if she hasn’t messaged me back or called me. I would like to spend more time at my torch today making glass beads, but even if i don’t go to my sis’s its still not a good torch day, because i lampwork out in my shed…with the door wide open…and it is EXTREMELY windy outside…and torch and wind just don’t get along well. So am hoping to be able to go down there…even though it means a long drive…and a 7 1/2 month old in the back seat. But my sis has a 2 1/2 year old boy as well as identical twin 8 month old girls, so chloe will have lots to do. now as for what i would like to bring with me…haha…that could be interesting…well…i want breakfast…so later!

so obviously i am new to lampworking…here are some of my older beads…

and now for some of my newest beads! i am really in love with the set of purples, had fun with dots, and practiced more spacers. my other goal with that set was to acheive bigger beads that were about the same size, i think i did really well with that as well as acheiving beads that can make a ‘set’ at least of sorts. hope you enjoy! just click on the pics for a closer view!
