Grandpa Surprises Everyone With Age-Defying Dance Moves, Proves You’re Only As Old As You Feel

OMGoodness! I have had my deep belly laugh for today! LOL! This old man had me rolling!

When this elderly man’s song comes on, nothing can hold him back.

Not only does he cut a rug so fiercely that he has to throw off his canes, but see around the 1:50 mark how this stud muffin dances with not one, but two ladies. It just goes to show that age is a state of mind, and you’re never too old to bust some serious moves.

Get it, grandpa!

Straining At A Gnat And Swallowing A Camel

Shopping Bag, Orange

I called myself shopping for a few things I needed and so I have been having a problem with this company for over a year now. I ordered and received $150 dollars worth of products. Well these fools ended up billing me for items I never received from them and are trying to force me to pay to them $350 dollars instead. They are lying and claiming that I received more items then I actually did get. So somebody tell me how crazy is that? Well I know this is going to wind up in court one day soon. But in the meantime I just feel so helpless.

So I like to call it the way I see it and as mama used to say. These fools are straining at a gnat and swallowing a big camel. They cannot see the bigger picture.

What ever happened to the customer is always right policy. I feel like it is so foolish on their part what they are doing. Because as a result of it they have lost me as a customer forever and I can swear to you that I will never ever purchase anything from them ever again for putting me through these changes. Not only that but I went ahead and warned my family and friends about them, so they are refusing to take chances in buying from this company too. Plus if they take me to court they will have paid out more money for what it was really worth just to steal that extra $200 dollars from me. What fools! I cannot wait until we go to court and this is all over with and I just hope to win my case.

Anyway, I hope everyone is enjoying the rest of the summer so far. Well down here for us it is just about time for the kids to be returning back to school. So where did the summer go? It didn’t seem like much of a summer to me. I guess it was because it has been raining practically everyday just like it did last summer, so as a result of so much rain we didn’t have much of a garden because the land stayed soaking wet all of the time.

But one wonderful thing did happen for us this summer. One of our cats had a huge litter and we are at least very happy about that! It’s such good news…..and the kittens are so adorable, tiny and sweet looking. I tell you I could never have enough pets. Our amount of pets are growing constantly now. And we are keeping them all. So I guess I am just making up for the fact I could not have pets for so many years in the past. The good thing is that even though they are all outdoor pets I still get the opportunity to watch them from our windows a lot and get to go out to feed them sometimes too.

So this summer my husband and I did get out a bit to enjoy and so we went out to a couple of places and enjoyed ourselves too. So I will blog about it later on.

So have a great rest of the week all!

My Crock Pot/Slow Cooker American Style Chicken And Vegetable Indian Biryani

Hello, to all amazing blogging friends around the world!

As you may know I am one who just loves, loves, loves Indian style foods and so you might have guessed it that Indian Style Biryani is one of them! It’s tasty, amazing, nutritious and so delicious.

So I took a peek at a few Biryani recipes on the web and even glanced once again at one of my favorite cook books named “The Indian Slow Cooker” by Anupy Singla for some amazing tips so I could make a delicious Biryani at home and in a simple crock pot.

But unfortunately after looking at so many different ways to make a Biryani, I found “Garam Marsala” is always listed as one of the main and most important ingredients to making a good Biryani and the issue for me is that, my husband’s taste buds have always had a difficult time in trying to adjust to the strong flavor of the “Garam Marsala” spice. For even a little of it is a lot, so what can I tell you other then that being able to enjoy the “Garam Marsala” spice is an acquired taste for some. So what’s a girl like me to do? Here’s what I decided to do……..

So I decided to create my very own Americanized version of it. Yep! So here’s my recipe which is a little complicated as most Biryani recipes are and yes it’s still has a lot of the Indian spices in it, still cooked in layers, really very, very tasty, spicy, delicious and as my husband would say “finger licking good” but thankfully minus that strong “Garam Marsala” spice.

And since I have so many days in which cooking is just out of the question for me, this recipe provides an ample amount of suppers for us.

Of course I have to thank my amazing husband for taking the time to pick up some of the last minute missing ingredients for me and helping out in the running around in the kitchen for everything and for helping with the clean up.

So now perhaps out there in “blog-ville land” (LOL!) someone might appreciate this Americanized version too. So here it goes!

My Crock Pot/Slow Cooker American Style Chicken And Vegetable Indian Biryani

Ingredients:

1 whole chicken (cut into separate pieces, using only the thighs, wings, breast, legs)

1 4 inch piece of ginger root (put in whole or sliced or grated in)

4 large garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped (that has been pre-soaked in olive oil)

Juice of one fresh squeezed lemon (small to medium sized)

1/2 teaspoon clove powder

1 Tablespoon of garlic powder

1 Tablespoon onion powder

1 teaspoon of ginger powder

3 Tablespoons of Ms. Dash seasonings

1/2 to 1 teaspoon hot red chili powder (if you like heat…add a little bit more, I do! LOL!)

1 Tablespoon of turmeric powder

1 teaspoon of salt

1 teaspoon of coriander seeds

2/3 cup chopped fresh basil or dried

2/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro or dried

4-5 heaping tablespoons of Goya cilantro sauce

1 Tablespoon of granulated white sugar

2 cups fresh plain yogurt

1/2 large yellow onions peeled and sliced very thin (fried in oil and a bit of sugar)

1/2 large yellow onions peeled and sliced very thin (leave raw)

4-6 Tablespoons coconut oil

A few dashes of hot sauce (optional)

A few dashes of soy sauce or Braggs amino acids (optional)

1 Tablespoon of smoke flavor (optional)

 

RICE (Ingredients)

5 cups of seasoned hot boiling water (adding only just enough hot water to cover the rice)

3-4 cups uncooked basmati rice (rinsed, soaked for 30 minutes in cold water, washed then strained)

1 teaspoon salt

1 bay leaf (to remove later)

1 or 2 cinnamon stick (to be removed later)

2 cardamon pods (to be removed later)

1 marble sized piece ginger root (to be removed later)

5-6 whole cloves

1 teaspoon of granulated white sugar

1 Tablespoon of coconut oil

 

VEGETABLES (Ingredients)

1/2 -1 bag of frozen mixed vegetables (about 3-5 cups)

1/2 bag of frozen or fresh cauliflower (2 cups-each one cut in halves)

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 cup of tomato sauce

1 cup of tomato ketchup

1 teaspoon Goya cilantro sauce

½ teaspoon Ms. Dash seasoning

1 teaspoon of granulated white sugar

3-5 Tablespoon of coconut oil

 

Additional Ingredients: (for later use)

1/2 to 1 cup or more Raisins (soaked in either pure rum, brandy, cooking red wine or cooking white wine for about 2-3 hours then strain or not to strain is up to you.) (this is also optional)

1 Tablespoon of melted butter or ghee

1 teaspoon saffron strands, soaked in ½ cup of milk (optional)

2 Tablespoon of lite brown sugar

 

Cooking Utensils & Items Needed:

Oval shaped large sized crock pot

3-large spoons

1 large mixing bowl

plastic wrap

1 medium skillet

1 small skillet

2 quart sized pans

 

DIRECTIONS:

First coat the crock/slow cooker with a little oil or spray it with non stick cooking spray or use a crock pot cooking bag.

Then turn the crock/slow cooker on to the warm setting allowing the crock pot/slow cooker to get a little bit hot before adding in all of the ingredients (that’s only if you’re done marinating the chicken as instructed below.)

Chicken:

Mix together ingredients in large bowl/container ginger, garlic, hot red chili powder, turmeric, teaspoon of salt, cilantro, lemon juice, yogurt and cilantro sauce. Add the chicken pieces and mix to coat the chicken thoroughly, cover with plastic wrap. Let marinate at least two hours or overnight in refrigerator.

Turn the crock/slow cooker on high. Add raw onions to bottom of crock/slow cooker, pour in 4-6 tablespoons of the oil over the onions and then layer the marinated chicken into the crock/slow cooker. It might be a little tight trying to squeeze each piece of chicken into the crock but go ahead and do so laying the pieces side by side but it’ll work you’ll see. Then shake a few dashes of hot sauce and soy sauce/Braggs amino acids on top then cover.

Be sure to let chicken cook well done for up to three (3) hours.

Turn setting up to high for the first hour and then cook on low for the remaining hours.

**The reason why I prefer to cook on high setting at first is to allow the meat to get good and hot early on and to reduce some of the cooking time.**

Vegetables:

On stove top, add oil to a medium sized skillet on low to medium heat then add in mixed vegetables, onion powder, garlic powder, Ms. Dash seasonings, then stir fry the vegetables for up to five (5) minutes or until vegetables are slightly soft, then stir/mix in tomato sauce and ketchup, turn off heat. Set aside.

Onions:

On stove top, add oil and sugar to a small sized skillet over low to medium heat, stirring the sugar for one (1) minute then add in the onions, coating and allowing the onions to turn brown, then turn off heat, set aside.

Rice:

Pour the rinsed, pre-soaked, washed and strained rice into the first quart sized pan and set aside.

On the stove top, bring the water to a boil over medium to high heat in the second quart sized pan. Add one (1) teaspoon of salt, oil, cinnamon sticks, cardamon pods, bay leaves, ginger root, sugar and whole cloves on medium to high heat. Let these spices continue to cook/boil on a low flame for up to 10-15 minutes, then remove and discard the bay leaf, cloves, cinnamon stick, ginger root and cardamon pods from the boiling water.

Then pour this seasoned hot boiling water over the rice, adding only just enough of this water to cover the rice, no more, then bring it to a boil.

Allow the rice to simmer for up to only 3 to 5 minutes, at which point all of the water should have evaporated (check the rice that it is only half way done, because the rice is the important part of making a good Biryani)

Then every step of the way everything will be spooned into the crock pot/slow cooker in layers.

So spoon the rice into the crock/slow cooker, spreading evenly over the chicken and level the rice.

Next, drizzle melted butter over the rice and then drizzle the saffron/milk mixture over the rice (optional.)

Next, spoon the cooked vegetables over the rice evenly.

Then top the vegetables with the fried caramelized onions and then with soaked and strained raisins.

Sprinkle over the top the brown sugar (and you can even add some cashews or almonds on top.)

Next, cover the pot and let the rice finish off cooking on the low setting for up to one (1) or two (2) additional hours and………just enough time to let the flavors merge and seal in, allowing the sauce/gravy/juices/spices to quickly bubble up half way around the edges of the crock….. allowing the delicious aromas to circulate around the house therefore making the husbands/family/friends/ or you’re self…… become good and hungry (LOL!) letting the favors to continue to do their work. (LOL) Can you just imagine that?

And then finally, just go ahead and spoon out all of the rice and vegetables on top onto a platter, fluffing it all up a bit. Then spoon out the chicken left at the bottom of the crock onto a separate platter.

You may serve this amazing rice and chicken just as is……. or with a side of yogurt and a couple of slices of naan, fried flat bread or french bread. This has to be such a delicious combination of foods, so enjoy!

I am one who truly believes that …….

“What God Has For You It Is For You”

…….and no one else can have it or take it away from you no matter how hard they try. That’s why I have fallen so in love with this song from the very first time I heard it. Since becoming a Christian, I loved having the security of knowing this very important thing.

I know what ever happens in this life that what God has for me it is for me. What God has for you IT IS FOR YOU. And one good thing about this is only you can have it. It is only for you and not for me or anyone else for that matter. You see I have learned through reading scripture that God has a master plan for my life. And the same for you…..We just need to go to him to get all the details.

“Superstition”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3RRWI6O57IE

~~~

Where did all of these old sayings, superstitions and old wives tales come from? …….Oh goodness gracious who knows for sure!

But one of the joys and benefits of growing up in a big family for me was having a beautiful set of parents who used to be good story tellers and so they’d tell us so many fun and interesting stories that you’d be sitting on the edge of your seat by the time they were all done. They would tell us amazing stories about how things were for them growing up and what their experiences were and sometimes they would share with us kids some old wives tales, words of wisdom, ancestor stories and crazy old funny superstitions and the such and it was a lot of fun listening to them as they’d spin their web. I remember how dad used to say little lines and he’d always remind us and say something like this……

One bird in hand is better than a thousand flying by”

LOL! Meaning= you better be thankful and grateful for what you have. Don’t make the mistake of being too greedy in life or foolish enough to think you can grab onto more of what may be way out of your reach for the time being before you let slip out of your hand what good you have right now for trying to grab onto something else at the same time.

So I can remember being exposed to a lot by being around the many different aunts, uncles, cousins, family friends and all sorts of extended relatives from both my parents sides of the family, who would tell us so many stories that made you laugh, cry, be afraid, make you behave and think twice about the things you do or shed light on the things that happen to you.

So being around different types of people often stretched and exercised our social muscles. You’d learn a great deal about people from them all. So while some people don’t care for all of these kinds of things. I think it’s fun and kinda cute to go back and think about these kinds of different things.

I tell you sometimes I enjoy thinking back about these days of innocent childhood days and the feelings of being free. The freedom to just be…. For I recall how as children we were like little sponges….taking in everything, just learning and growing in the innocence of it all. My childhood was somewhat sheltered and we were protected from knowing and seeing the cruelty of life. We were allowed to be kids and not trying to act all grown up before our time.

So that brought me to this……I love reading up what ever I can find about old wives tales, superstitions, folklore and old sayings and the such, because for me coming from a large family background exposed me to a lot of different things, ideas and people so much so that I always want to learn more. I guess that’s why I enjoy learning about different cultures, one at a time and I question why some people have certain superstitions causing them to behave the way they do. You know what I mean. I still have a curious mind as I did way back when.

So here’s some interesting superstitions, old wives tales and such. Some I found on the web and some I remember hearing while growing up from the elders. So its all here to share with the hopes that anyone may see any that are familiar.

1. ~Dropping a butter knife will bring bad luck in money affairs, so having someone to pick it up for you reverses it
