Animal Spirit

Standard

I was born in March 13th. I’m a wolf.

WOLF (FEB 20 – MARCH 19)

The complex, mysterious wolf likes to sit back and watch the world around them, simply observing and taking notes. They can be hard to get close to, as they tend to hide their emotions and only show people certain parts of themselves that they feel comfortable with. Highly creative, intelligent, and artistic, the wolf spends much time in solitude, perfecting his craft. This is where the phrase “lone wolf” comes from, as they are fiercely independent

***

For the most part, I agree. I love alone time, which I guess is a really good thing since I’m alone ALL THE TIME. I’m definitely complex. Mysterious? Kind of? I’m an open book in many aspects though!

My husband, Doug, was born on February 2nd. He is an otter.

OTTER (JAN 20 – FEB 19)

Otters have a spunky, eccentric personality. On the other hand, they also excel at solving problems, and will never give up until they have an answer. Many people find them hard to read, but this doesn’t bother the otter. They see the world through a unique lens, and don’t care what anyone else thinks about them. Otters constantly crave freedom and adventure, but have a more gentle, empathetic side as well.

***

Again, mostly agree. He’s not eccentric. He is hard to read by many for sure. He doesn’t care what others think & hee completely content!

Unused Bravery

Standard

I’m pretty stoked about the new drama series about to start on NBC entitled, “The Brave.”

Why? Obviously, I’m a true patriot! But beyond that, it’s a part of me…bravery. I don’t mean to sound conceited or anything else horrible, but if I had to be one hundred percent honest, I would say that I am truly one of the bravest people I know. I wasn’t really given a chance to be anything but brave, however, I would choose to be brave either way.

I sit here and often question things. Why? Why was I made to be so brave and honestly, so incredibly strong and yet, I’m forced to be STUCK at home fighting illnesses. I understand that absolutely everything is God’s work. Everything is part of God’s plan. I totally get it. I just wish I understood WHY. God gave me the strength, the courage, the heart…and I don’t understand what I’m suppose to be doing with it, other than surviving incurable illnesses of course.

I do often feel I have wasted talent, stored strength and unused bravery.

If you look up the show on the IMDB website, the synopsis will tell you this:

”The complex world of our bravest military heroes who make personal sacrifices while executing the most challenging and dangerous missions behind enemy lines.”

The show fits my personality to the letter. I want to go in and help. I want to serve my country and do everything I can to protect, save and defend it. I’m smart, I’m adaptable (CLEARLY), I can crush challenges thrown my way and I’ve proved it time and time again.

USE ME. Make me useful.

Scientology

Standard

The more I watch Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, the more I am absolutely shocked.

download

I never knew. I didn’t even know what Scientology was. I was thinking, who is this L. Ron Hubbard dude?  You spend thousands of dollars on books for your religion & church. Who signs a contract for a billion years?! You climb a “Bridge” to become a better spiritual & human being & at the top of that “Bridge to Total Freedom” you should be able to cure cancer & move junk with your mind? REALLY?

You make yourself bankrupt because you MUST pay for EVERYTHING AND give back.

cpsimfousaabteg

The levels of multiple types of abuse, the disconnecting & ripping apart of families, the harassment…I’m shocked.

I’m ALL ABOUT education. I’m all about the truth & sharing your story too. Leah Remini is absolutely amazing as well as Mike Rinder. The work they’re doing is impacting & informative. I’m grateful to learn & they’re role models to me.

Just wow…

P.S. Hubbard & I were both born on March 13th. Ew. Granted, he died two months before I was born.

Chicken Parmesan Meatballs

20170829_032404

Need:
1 pound ground chicken breast
3/4 cup Italian breadcrumbs
1 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
3 garlic cloves, pressed
1/2 small onion, grated
2 tablespoons + 1 cup marinara sauce (divided)
1/2 tablespoon dried Italian seasoning
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup shredded Italian blend shredded cheese

Do:
Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare a baking sheet by lining with parchment paper.

Set aside 1 cup marinara & shredded Italian cheese.

In a large mixing bowl, combine all remaining ingredients. Mix well, do not over mix or you will have tough meatballs. Using a 1 tablespoon scoop, portion out meat mixture & place on baking sheet. After all meatballs have been scooped onto tray, roll into balls.

TIP: If you lightly wet your hands the meatballs will form better & crack less. Bake for 16-18 minutes until lightly browned.

Turn oven to broil.

Drizzle a spoonful of marinara over each meatball. Sprinkle with shredded cheese.

Broil for 2-3 minutes until cheese is golden brown & bubbly.

Serve & enjoy!
