May Day!

No, no, no...I'm not sending out distress signals, rather, just the opposite. I am floored by the strength and faith that some people possess in difficult, no, impossible times. I follow MckMama's blog and the Freeman's blog closely. The Freeman's, in particular, are going through a heart wrenching journey with their daughter, who will likely die very soon and it amazes me how articulate and courageous they are. I sat reading their blog, with tears in my eyes, as I held our own healthy "surprise", our little spit fire, A. She fell asleep in my lap, and my heart broke for a family I don't even know, who live across the country from us. Makes me realize how blessed I am and that I need to stop taking life for granted. So, to those I haven't told lately, I love you, and I am thankful to have you in my life! This is a glorious life we lead, and I need to remember to give thanks daily for it! God Bless you all!

So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later! Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story ! And this story ...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;) So, you can thank her...I guess. Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized! You'll need this: And, this: You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out.
