I start a lot of posts that way, don’t I?
Ok. I guess it’s kind of like when I have something I think is important to tell Mr. 365, I always start my sentence with, “Um,…” And when HE has something that he thinks I should hear and comprehend, starts his off with, “Let me tell you something” or “Tell you what,…”
I think that maybe sometimes I don’t know how to start off these posts and that’s why I start with “Ok”. It seems like a very good place to start. “Let’s start at the very beginning, a very good place to start.” Sorry, now you’re going to have this stuck in your head for the rest of the day/afternoon/night.
I would SO want to do this one day, just start dancing in a public place with a whole bunch of people even though I can’t dance for diddly. When the tv show ‘Fame’ was on (yes, I suppose I’m dating myself) I SO wanted to go to that school in New York so that I could dance and sing in the cafeteria at lunchtime.
That would’ve been so awesome! “FAME, I’m gonna live forever! I’m gonna learn how to fly – HIGH!” No, I won’t post another video, though I’m SSSOOOOO tempted!!
SAVE THIS CHICKEN CHILAQUILES TO YOUR FAVORITE PINTEREST BOARD!
Ok, seriously, I’m done. No more videos. I’ll get back on topic. Topic, topic, topic… Oh yeah, a recipe! I haven’t posted in a few days because I had a 2 day debilitating, and when I say debilitating, I do mean, DEBILITATING, migraine. It was pretty darn awful. Really.
All I wanted to do was crawl under a rock and die. It was that bad. I woke up yesterday morning, and thinking, “Oh wow! It’s completely gone!! HALLELUJAH!!!!!!!!” I felt like embracing the WORLD!!!! Hugging everyone, and kissing the animals!!!!
You don’t realize how much you take your health for granted until something happens to completely alter your life.
And this was just a headache! I can’t possibly imagine how friends and family members, including my mother, dealt with or are dealing with a diagnosis of cancer or other life-changing health issues.
If any of you are going through something like this, you have my prayers that you will be completely be surrounded by love and support and that you will find moments of peace and beauty in the world around you during your struggle. I love you and there are also many other people who do, too.
This is one of my favorite recipes because it is easy and just tastes so doggone good. I usually make it when I’m needing to use up that leftover rotisserie chicken or a roast chicken I’ve cooked at home. Even though we’re a family of 5, we typically have a good 1/2 to 3/4 of the bird remaining from the first sitting and I love it when I get two meals out of those birds!
I adapted this recipe from my Everyday Food Cookbook- Great Food Fast, p.44; author, Martha Stewart; publisher, Clarkson Potter/Publishers, an imprint of the Crown Publishing Group, a division of Random House, Inc.

Hi Lynne! I loved Fame too when it was on. I missed those days…. Your recipe looks delicious!
I have that book too. I going to try it soon. Fun reading your blog as always. Hopefully I will have my blog started soon. Maybe I will be able to figure out what to do with my son help.
