This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

Desperately Seeking Chicken Ideas

As you all know, I started OAMC this week. Well I'm totally stumped what to do with the rest of the chicken breasts. Help?

It must be something I can put in the freezer.

It must be done today, because otherwise the chicken is going to go bad in my fridge. It's been there since Tuesday, and the date on it is Sunday so... yikes.

While I realize I can just put it in the freezer as is, I already have tons of chicken in the freezer "as is" and I was hoping to avoid that.

Marinate with some lime juice, olive oil, cumin or cilantro and then slice into strips, cook and freeze for fajitas or salads

Marinate some more in lemon juice, garlic and olive oil, then cube it and cook it freeze it and use in salads, pasta dishes etc.

Take whole breasts and coat with a mixture of one packet good seasons, 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese and a teaspoon of garlic powder. Freeze whole and just pop in the oven until done (or thaw right in the ziploc bags in a pan of water). Might want to flatten them a bit if they are huge.

Hope this helps.

Ter--we're practically birthday buddies! Here's hoping for happier ones down the road.
Now about the chicken. Poach it. Cool it. Chop it in cubes. Bag in 1 and 2 cup amounts.
Then you can use it in casseroles or on salads or whatever, whenever you feel like it.
Good luck! I overbuy ALL the time and it is so frustrating, isn't it, when you are out of energy but not food?!

Hi Ter,
I found you today and I read all about bear and baby bear. When our son passed away this year - our first and perhaps only child, my husband went into a deep deep depression. As I struggled with my own grief, I always told him that we have to thank God because we have each other. Today, as I read your story, and cried many many tears with you, I knew we both had to thank God because no life can be taken for granted. I am so very sorry for your loss. It just breaks my heart. I wish I had come across your blog a month earlier so I could have been there supporting you through a very hard month with the rest of our wonderful blogger friends. Hugsssssss
