My Thoughts:

Before I get to writing about this wonderful Chicken Kiev Easy Recipe, I need to vent a little in this post. It has been a good weekend but also a bad weekend. I had the pleasure of attending my 30-year High School reunion and seeing former classmates. It really was a great time. Not everyone showed up but the ones that did, came with smiles, hugs, and handshakes. We got to talk about old times and tell stories of crazy things we did as kids.

The classmate who organized the reunion brought a VHS television to play an old VHS tape another classmate had made on the last day of school. It was so much fun to watch the video and to see all of us as young kids again. We all laughed together. There was a taco bar and drinks as well. Cookies and other party favors were provided. One classmate I didn't even recognize. Honestly, it seemed to me that everyone just gets better looking with age and I made a comment that we all age like fine wine. It was the first school reunion I had attended after 30 years. I didn't make it before because I was busy living out of state and raising kids. I should mention I was hesitant to attend past reunions because I didn't graduate with my class. I was a high school dropout and was embarrassed about it. I also didn't attend past reunions because I felt other classmates would not want to include me because of not graduating with them.

I did make up for not graduating with my classmates as far as education is concerned. I got my General Education Diploma in 1992 actually one year before my class graduated. Then in 2006, I began my online college education while being a full-time husband, dad, and employee. It was nice to feel included by the reunion invitation. School kids do grow up and become great adults. Those great adults do invite others to come to visit and talk about old times. It was really nice and I am grateful.

That was the good part of my weekend. Now I need to tell you about the bad part of my weekend. I had listed a Ford F150 camper shell on the Facebook Marketplace. I measured out the camper shell at 80 inches but had listed it as an 8-foot camper shell. It is actually a 6-foot camper shell. Someone contacted me interested in purchasing it. It was a 3-hour drive for the potential customer. I agreed to meet him halfway and drove over an hour. When he looked at the camper shell he discovered that it was actually a 6 1/2 foot camper shell. He was disappointed and I was too. Unfortunately, the sale was not made and I am sure he was saying some choice words about me on the drive home. I immediately changed the listing to the correct size of the camper shell. It was a lesson learned for me and one I do not intend on making again.

My teenage daughter asked if she could go on a float trip today with my second daughter and her coworkers. I agreed and they left out early on their trip. I had a gut feeling that my teenage daughter should leave her phone at home. I had visions of her dropping it in the water or on the river's edge. After some overthinking, I decided not to say anything about her phone. You can imagine what happened. I got a text towards the end of the day from my second daughter that her little sister had lost her phone. I thought to myself that I should've listened to my parental intuition and had her leave the phone at home after all. Turns out she had tipped her kayak over and her phone went over in the water. It was in a waterproof case but it was too late. She could not find it but managed to find her shoes that were off her feet.

I now must call the phone store and cancel service on her cell phone. My teenage daughter also came home looking like a lobster. She is red on her face, arms, and legs. She had sunscreen but I think she did not have enough on her skin. There was an excessive heat warning for the whole state of Missouri and she was out there over 10 hours. I feel like I dropped the ball on listening to my intuition. If you are a parent, have you ever experienced this? If you are not a parent, I can tell you that as a parent you blame yourself for everything bad that happens to your children no matter what. What is the lesson learned here? For my daughter, it was wearing more sunscreen and keeping better care of her phone. For me, it was doing a little more thinking and coaching her more on making sure those things negative that happened do not happen again in the future.



Thoughts On Chicken Kiev:

This Chicken Kiev Easy Recipe is super tasty and I am sure you will love it! What's the secret? In my opinion, it is the insane amount of butter along with parsley flakes, and onion. There is just something about the flavor. Not to mention the texture the breadcrumbs brings to your tastebuds. This chicken dish is thought to originate in the Ukraine but that is not accurate. It actually came from Paris. You can read more about this easy recipe from NPR's article on The Salt page.
