Ginger Chicken and New Babies

I accomplished my goals yesterday. I did the dishes, laundry and wrote my paper. Okay, well I didn't finish the laundry but in our household laundry is never-ending. Today my goals are to start the diaper bag, dishes, laundry, and clean my sewing/computer/work table. I also need to go into town this morning to go to the chiropractor since my arm has been numb (since I'm retaining a lot of water, it's pinching my nerves).

We often get stuck eating the same things and I'm trying to change that up. Last night I made what I call Ginger Chicken and served it with brown rice. It was a hit. I always know how my Dad likes dinner by his response and action after dinner. If it's good, say an everyday meal we have, he'll say thank you for supper. If it's something new and he wasn't quite sure, he'll say, thank you, it's always nice to try something new. If it's something new that he really liked, he'll say thank you, that's definately a new one for the books and clean the dinner table. Last night he cleaned the dinner table!

Ginger Chicken (Served with brown rice and steamed vegetables)
1-2 pounds of chicken cut into pieces
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
Bread chicken with 1/2 c. flour (I used whole wheat), garlic, black pepper, and salt (approxiamtely 1/8 to 1/4 tsp. each).
Bake for 40 minutes.

2 1/2 tsp. honey
2. tsp. lemon juice
1/4 c. melted butter
1 tsp. ginger powder
2 tbsp. onions, finely chopped
1/4 tsp. garlic
2 1/2 tsp. soy sauce

Pour glaze over chicken, increase oven to 400 degrees and bake 10 minutes.

7 days until we meet our newest baby! We've been having a countdown at our house. This morning Emily asked if they were still going to "cut" the baby out of me and if I don't go into labor before next Wednesday, we will have another C-section. So while she was eating breakfast, we looked at pictures on the computer of when her and Connor were born. I love some of those first pictures that were ever taken of my children.

Emily about 15 minutes after she was born.

This was taken the morning after he was born.

Have a blessed day!
