My Own Dinner Creation, and He Loved It

Oh gosh, my boyfriend has to deal with my silly meal creations – like for instance, I had this chicken breast that absolutely needed to be cooked up. There were no kids, so normally I would not even cook a huge meal but I had to because the chicken had to get used up. I decided to make my own version of what looks like chicken quesidillas (sp?).

Making Chicken Meal

I basically took chicken breast, tortillas, shredded cheese and sour cream to layer a creation in a baking pan. First I had to cook up the chicken but overall this was a great meal idea.

Meals using chicken

The dude loved it. I loved it. And we were filled right up with a quarter of a piece each along with the broccoli and pasta I cooked with it. A meal made for a king .. or well maybe a meal made for a daring person who is willing to taste test any of my sometimes questionable food creations…

My Pug Is Fascinated with Poop

Full warning: If you have a weak stomach for the topic of poop please do not read this.

My sweet Jenny the Pug is fascinated with poop and she isn’t discriminatory against any type of poop. I take Miss Jenny out for her daily walk to the mailbox and she enjoys sniffing and snorting out various forms of poop from wild animals to the neighbors wandering chicken poop to her own poop. Yes Jenny the sweet Pug loves her own poop.

Now when I took Jenny into our home I knew she had a cat box fetish, this was relayed to me from her previous owners. Having no cat box I assumed that this poop fetish of hers would disappear but oh not so much. You see we have outdoor cats and we have neighbors with chickens who wander into our yard. Lately the chickens have been coming in real close, like our walkway, and pooping all over. I never realized just how messy chickens can get.

Miss Jenny has been in poop heaven between the pile of leaves where the outdoor cats poop and the chicken poop. It’s a nightmare to have to pull her away from her fetish. She just really wants to eat that poop. This is the most absurd thing I have ever seen an animal go crazy over.

The snorting won’t stop, the pulling won’t stop. Please, how do I get my pug to stop wanting to eat poop? I don’t let her eat it but still … is there a better way to cure this issue? I hear hot sauce works on nail biters, so there has to be something that works for poop eating dogs.

**my life is so exciting that I chose to share Jenny’s poop story with you all … sigh**

Ketchup and Kids

Oh my gosh, my kids LOVE ketchup but it is partially my fault as I am a huge fan of using ketchup in extreme amounts on just about everything too. My kids love ketchup with their chicken alfredo, instead of the alfredo sauce, ketchup on eggs, ketchup on pork chops and the list can go on and on.

Ketchup and kids was not a huge deal up until about a week ago when my youngest who will be 2 in August decided that he could use this wonderfully red product as finger paint. Yes Baby K insists on painting his brothers face, cheek and his sisters arm and clothing with red ketchup.

I have wondered what methods I can use to deter him from using ketchup in this not so great way. Maybe put him in the time out corner when he does it, raise my voice at him, explain it’s not okay or better yet J has told me that I should simply take ketchup away from him until he starts to use it right. Meaning he won’t have ketchup for any of his favorite foods and will watch as his sister & brother use it in full amounts.

I love the idea of taking the ketchup away from him altogether, however, this almost 2 year old boy watching his siblings use ketchup may lead to more issues than just a little bit of ketchup on various parts of bodies … he may have a total melt down which may lead to his plate being thrown, food tossed at us, and so much more.

As I work towards figuring out a resolution to ketchup and kids I write on here to see what ideas you have to help me fix the ketchup and kids dilemma! Any tips, advice, what you would do comments are encouraged!
