With all the hurricanes and earthquakes going on right now, I thought it would be best to talk about being prepared since we are prone to earthquakes too! It is scary to think about natural disasters and how much it actually can be extremely dangerous, so it is best to be ready for the worst. There are many things you can do in case of an emergency, but I just wanted to lay down the basics.
We hope nothing terrible like this happens to us, but we always have to prepare for the worst!
If you have any suggestions on planning, where to buy these item, or any additional courses, please comment below! I would love to know :)
One of my favorite parts about my birthday is all the food my mom cooks for me. She goes out of her way to cook, clean and basically do anything I want for my birthday dinner. The other day, some of you talked about how my mom's chicken salad was very light and refreshing compared to others out there...so I thought it was a good idea to put it in this weeks post!
1 Whole Chicken
7 Garlic cloves
Desired amount of Mayo
Desired amount of Celery
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Cayenne Pepper to Taste
1. Clean Chicken Breast and put in a large enough pot with onion, garlic, salt and pepper.
2. Fill up pot with water, cover pot and boil for 45 minutes or until cooked.
Scoop out white foam as it cooks.
3. Take out the chicken and throw away garlic and onion. (can save chicken broth for other recipes)
4. Shred chicken breast into little pieces.
5. Finely chop celery and grapes if wanted.
6. Mix chicken, celery, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, grapes and mayo
Please comment below if you end up trying the recipe. I am not sure if anyone of you will be able to compare to Teta..hehe.
I remember the day like it was yesterday…9/11/2001. The kids and I were getting ready for the day while I was watching the news. It was a normal day then it all changed. I was in the middle of getting ready when they were showing live coverage.
We were all standing in living room watching the news in shock and crying. I don’t cry much, but I grew up in New York and have family there. I still can’t believe this happened. My mom kept calling our relatives back in NYC to make sure everyone was okay. I couldn’t do anything for two days until I knew everyone was safe. My cousin was a police officer during this time and I can only image what he was going through. I am thankful that he made it out alive. It breaks my heart to think of all the trauma that everyone had to endure.
I recently visited the memorial in New York and it touched my heart. It was beautiful but also very sad to think that this had affected so many families. The day still haunts me as I am sure it does to everyone else, but I am grateful that we never let it bring us down.
