Stir Fry with Spam with Easy Adjustments

It actually tastes delicious. There is 1 can spam, 1 potato, 1 onion,1 red and green pepper, 4 cloves garlic minced, a little bit of water and  some curry powder and soy sauce. Salt and pepper to taste. It was done in about 15 minutes and a hit with the family. I served it with rice and fried eggs and made 5 servings. I also like to add hot chili pepper sauce.

EASY ADJUSTMENTS (some of us are in pain)

If you have trouble cutting vegetables, boil the potato in water ahead of time in its skin. Then drain the water and rinse the potato in cool water. The skin should just peel right off. Put the potato in the pan and break it up with a spatchula.( It also works with carrots.) You can buy onions and peppers already cut up in the frozen aisle in the grocery store and spam should be east to cut up. Garlic can already be bought minced in the fresh food section of the grocery store. So, boil a potato, and prepare to get ready for the pan. Add sliced spam , then pour out the frozen peppers and onions out of the bag and a couple of tablespoons of minced garlic. Pour some soy sauce over the mixture and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and curry powder. I like to add chili pepper sauce over it. You can also buy potatoes already sliced and ready to cook in the refrigerator aisle. SERVES 6

Overprotective Mom's Guide to Pop Music this Week

I have 2 teens and so I try to keep up with what is going on in music. I want to know what my kids are listening to. I also need to be aware of what songs are playing on the radio while my kids are in the van. I listened to the Top Ten pop songs on the Billboard chart and wrote down my impressions of the songs.

My son asked me one afternoon, "Mom, why is Ariana Grande walking side to side?' I usually don't listen to the words and focus on the beat and melody so I was surprised that he caught what the lyrics were. The song he is referring to is "Side to Side" by Ariana Grande featuring Nicki Minaj. I've heard that song around 200 times over the last couple of months. I just figured she was dancing with some guy and they were swaying side to side like you do at church dances. Well, I found out what it really means, prompted by my son's question. She's had sex with a guy all day and all night so she's so sore she walks side to side. (Vomit) Now I ch…

Writer's Block

I usually have great ideas to write about especially if I am not under any pressure. Writer's block is horrible. I've had it at times, especially when I am busy or distracted. It's rare that it happens to me. 
What if I finally published a novel? It became popular and fans wanted a sequel. My anxiety would kick in like a huge block of ice, blocking my flow. What if I disappoint my fans? What if I can't repeat my previous success? Doubt will eventually lead to writer's block. Years go by and I still haven't published anything. Everyday I open up my computer and stare at a blank screen. I distract myself by going to Reddit or Twitter and discuss things like feminism in Star Wars and the worst sunburn I've ever had. 
One day I decide that I need to take my writing seriously. I put on some headphones and play white noise to try to clear my head while walking through a city park. The static masks the sounds of life and I am able to sit on a bench and clear my mi…

STUFF Clogging My Mind

I haven't blogged in a while. I never made it big in blogging and I never found an audience. I gave up and instead used Twitter as a way to express myself. I primarily used Twitter for about four years and even had my own little community. I had a few major retweets but was never famous or anything. I kept myself anonymous because I didn't want attention. I just wanted to express my feelings. A month ago I quit and it was one of the best decisions I've made.

It was popular last year to say that 2016 was the worst year ever! It was a very strange year for me! I went through many challenges, new baby, c section, deployment, teenagers, a move, and ended the year losing my grandfather, I went into a deep depression and realized that I was spending sometimes 6-8 hours arguing with people on Twitter. I knew that couldn't help my depressed mood so I decided one day to quit. By day three I felt like a new person. I had more energy and I no longer felt hopeless. Instead of wast…
