Call up an old friend to meet up and catch up for a bit. Even if it seems out of the blue, it can be a nice couple of hours to get together. Bonus points if you bring the rosé.
Make the most of your weekend, and start your chores early, today in fact. After work, try to get one of the bigger tasks you had planned for Saturday or Sunday out of the way.
Even if you aren’t loving life right now, fake it till you make it. There’s always a positive in everyday, you just have to work for it sometimes.
Start planning your summer vacation now. Whether you have a family meeting to decide what to do or surprise your family each year, start working on reservations now before prices surge.
Between your BBQ and pool time, remember those who gave it all. Without the brave sacrifice of men, women, and their families, our lives would be much different. Memorial Day is a great day off for us, but it’s to celebrate those who can’t be with us.
This is one of my all-time favorite recipes y’all, and one taste and you will agree. This is my mom’s recipe, and while I have tried to make it, it’s not quite as good as hers, but it’s a delicious option when you need some comfort food.
4-6 pieces of chicken
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon garlic powder
Black pepper to taste
Water – to be determined
Butter for bottom of pan
- Put 3 tablespoons of butter in skillet
- Rinse chicken
- Mix flour and seasonings in large bowl
- Coat chicken in flour and seasonings
- On medium-high heat, brown both sides of chicken
- When browned, add a couple cups of water, turn to medium-low heat to simmer
- Add portions of the flour mixture to thicken gravy
- Add water as necessary.
- Check the chicken every 10 minutes to make sure it doesn’t stick to the pan, but let simmer for 30 minutes
- Make a side of rice to go under the chicken and gravy
Be careful with the flour and gravy, the first time I made it, I had a gallon of gravy by the time I was done. If it’s a little thick or thin, that’s ok. If you have extras, Huskies love this stuff, at least mine did!
Keep mosquitos away from your house and yard by using citronella for natural mosquito control. These plants are hardy and can withstand intense heat, all while growing and spreading.
Did you know that once a year you’re supposed to have your vents cleaned? If this is news to you or you’ve just known and ignored, now is the time!
If you’ve been eyeing a new piece of furniture or a new car, take advantage of sales. This weekend most everywhere is offering deals, and you can easily update your house or vehicle for less.
