Alison posted about her missing wedding rings this week. Luckily, she found them. When I read about her missing rings, I remembered my engagement ring SCARE! Just a few months after Mr. Prevention and I moved to Tulsa and into our first home, I was making homemade pico de gallo. I usually take my rings off and set them on the counter while I’m cooking. As beautiful as eternity bands are, they collect dirt, grime, and nastiness really easily! So we eat supper and after kitchen clean-up, I couldn’t find my ring.
I searched for hours. There were tears. Alligator tears. And then I got frantic. I started checked absolutely everywhere. The rings were no where to be found.
Several hours and a long emotional roller coaster later, I find my rings. In a bag…of cilantro…in the fridge…in the produce drawer. WHY would I look in the cilantro bag? I don’t know, but I am SO glad I did! Needless to say, I am now a bit more careful about where I leave my rings when I’m cooking…right next to my iDock in the kitchen 😉
Since it’s cooled off to a tolerable 96 degrees in Tulsa (okay, it’s really 94, but it’s been 98 for WEEKS!)…I decided to grill. And not just grill…but BARBECUE! Confession: I was a barbecue virgin until last night. Things went well and my BBQ drumsticks turned out so well! As did my home-grown squash! Mmmm!
8 chicken drumsticks, skin removed
½ cup barbecue sauce
Remove skin from drumsticks. Coat with barbecue sauce.
Place tin foil on grill grates and pre-heat grill. Cook drumsticks on the tin foil until cooked through. Serves: 4 (2 drumsticks each)
Nutrition Information (per 2 drumsticks): 310 calories; 10 g. fat; 210 mg. cholesterol; 520 mg. sodium; 12 g. carbohydrate; 0 g. fiber; 44 g. protein
Result: Does it get any more summery than this? Delicious…and easy! Nutritious, too!
…Too bad Mr. Prevention was delayed in Columbus and got stuck there for the night! More for me Lily! 😀
This lucky girl has a hair appointment and a vet appointment with Miss Lily today to check on her abscess on her eye. Did I mention she has an abscess on her eye? Shouldn’t be shocking, there’s always something wrong with baby girl!
Question: Have you ever lost something really important? Did you end up finding it?
P.S. Cherry cabinets won the popular vote, but white weren’t far behind!! I’ll let you know what we end up with 😉
