Youโ€™re not the only mother in the world with a blog ..

So this happened. Some “sexuality coach” saw that I started a blog.

A blog for myself and my family, friends etc. A blog where I post what I want to post because it’s my free space. A blog where I post an occasional recipe here and there because people are always asking me how to make this or how to make that. It’s not professional, and it is more so like a diary – incase you were wondering ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m not sure if any of you can relate, but it seems like every time you do something for yourself, somebody has something to say about it and put you down.

My website is that of just a tired, young mother, looking for advice, support, friends etc.

I’m not ripping anyone off. I’m not the only mother out there who is tired, exhausted and almost non functioning. I’m not the only momma out there who wants to share an occasional recipe- mainly for her father in law– not that I don’t love these messages!!

We are in the 21st century people!!!!! This is the internet. There are billions of people out there and millions of people who are mothers, and millions who blog, and post recipes.

I could be rude and hit below the belt the same way this person has posted about me… but I won’t. I completely understand her defending her “business” but … HUNTYY YOU SHOULD ACTUALLY DEFEND YOURSELF FROM THE PEOPLE YOU SEEK COMFORT IN ON YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS.

I really don’t even need to write this post but its content baby! … But I guess she already knew that ! #clapback

I apologize that she is so worried that my little blog (with less than 10 posts) is going to surpass her rants about sex, masturbation, penis shaped candles etc. I’m sorry that my rant on my skin, hair or even my mother in law is content that I have copied from the sexual addictions blog. I apologize that I sent off my website alongside hers to the staff members at #sunnybrook hospital and they said “nothing is the same” & “you’re food looks better” or the lawyer that told me “you have nothing to worry about”. Yes I spoke to a lawyer, to make sure I was doing nothing wrong.

If I was I would’ve publicly apologized but I think it’s time to reclaim my motivation because let’s be honest here. I was excited to blog, I have posts sitting in my drafts just waiting to be published. But after watching the shade, the subtweets, the posts… wouldn’t you lose your motivation? Wouldn’t you begin to belittle your thoughts and ideas?

But why is it that when people feel threatened by success they have to belittle you and put you down. We should be building each other up! The amount of women out there, that are going through the same things, same stress, the same problems… that’s why I’m writing. And just because some “sexuality coach” feels threatened, does not mean I will stop.

I’m sorry.

I’m sorry you think I actually have all the time in the world to sit down and pick apart your libidinous blog site, and make a version of my own. I apologize that I don’t have any provocative photos of myself on my blog and somehow you still feel I’ve ripped you off. I’m also sorry that you feel as though you’re Rachel Ray or Barefoot Contessa, Martha Stewart and can say that I’ve ripped you off.

I guess that would also mean

Talesofatiredmom.com has ripped her off too, or Latoya forever – who is now a famous YouTuber- or scarymommy.com

I will thank her though, my blog’s publicity has skyrocketed. So all I have to say is…

Keep creeping my site booboo๐Ÿ˜˜

1 Pack of Chicken and 1 Tired Asf Momma

So on Wednesday’s I like to prepare dinner for the next following two days (Thursday and Friday) because I’m in school pretty much all day those days. By the time I get home it’s like late in the afternoon or I’ve been stuck in traffic long enough to think it’s late afternoon. It’s not that I don’t cook during the rest of the week, ( I am guilty for takeout ) it’s just, I’m sooooo much more busier starting Wednesday. Between studying, cleaning, teaching, playing, cleaning, bathing, feeding, laundry, did I say cleaning? I really just have little to no energy to go into the kitchen and prepare a meal.

Hubby (bna) picked up a pack of chicken breasts the other day. You know the simple boneless, skinless, comes with 4 in a pack. Well I did a pretty simple seasoning (all dry ingredients of course) and just placed the pieces in a freezer bag and plopped it in the fridge. I used the fridge to store it just so I’m not constantly freezing and thawing the same bag over and over again. Plus it was gonna be used up within the next 2 days.

My seasoning consisted of

  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Adobo seasoning

So here’s what Wednesday’s Dinner looked like … Day 1

Mushroom Chicken & Mushroom Alfredo

I used

  • 2/4 pieces of chicken
  • Half an onion – chopped
  • Tablespoon cilantro – chopped
  • A tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 diced tomato (no seeds)
  • 1 mushroom (your choice) – sliced thin
  • 1 bottle of Alfredo sauce (your choice)
  • 1 Can of Campbell’s cream of mushroom
  • Your choice of pasta
  • Salt
  • Garlic powder
  • Black pepper

Before I started I preheated my oven to 375 and I mixed my dry seasonings with my cilantro, onion, tomato and parsley

And I added just a tad more of my seasonings to my sliced mushrooms

With my breasts -the chicken’s that is… I took my two pieces and cut them in half- giving me 4 pieces. I did this for three reasons :

1. Hubby (bna) always says he wants two pieces but never finishes it … so these two pieces were actually one ๐Ÿ˜‰ little does he know

2. It saves me Chicken

3. It cooks much faster

I turned the heat on high and when my pan was hot enough, I added a splash of vegetable oil and swirled it around my pan to coat it. After I added my chicken and opened up the can of Cream of Mushroom.

I didn’t cook the meat all the way through as I just wanted to almost sear the top and bottom. So it was like 1 min on each side and then I tossed in my cream sauce.

I wanted to just coat the chicken in the sauce. When my chicken was finally covered, and evenly coated in this saucy mess, I transferred all of it (sauce and all) into a baking pan and shoved it into the oven.

In the same pot that my chicken came out of I added again, some vegetable oil and I tossed in my onion/ cilantro mix

I started boiling my water for my pasta. Adding some salt to the water, and when my boiling bubbles started picking up their rhythm, I tossed in my pasta. It was about a handful – for the 3 of us.

When my onions started to cook down and become translucent, I added in 1/2 a cup of water and let that come to a simmer. I then added my bottle of Alfredo sauce.

Once I added my Alfredo sauce and my pot returned to a simmer, I tossed in my mushrooms and extra seasonings and covered up my pot, for about 3-4 minutes while I strained my pasta.

By the time I finished straining my pasta, my sauce had thickened up and all that was left was to toss and sauce

Gave my pasta a good mix, incorporating the sauce into every part of this pan. By that time, my chicken was ready to come out of the oven.

Plate up and add that sprinkle of green just to make it look sooo much better!

The end result

It’s amazing what you can do in the kitchen. You take some random stuff that you think will work well together and that’s what you do. You make a gott’am beautful dish! The best part?

It only took about 30 mins!

But when hubby bna asks… you slaved over that damn stove all day momma!

Enjoy guys!
