Bacon PepperJack Smothered Chicken ; FOTW Sept.

Happy Friday y'all! I have a quick and delicious recipe for you and then what we all wait for...Fly On The Wall.
Bacon PepperJack Smothered Chicken
2-4 chicken breast, boneless skinless
2-4 slices of pepperjack cheese
bacon crumbles
Seasoning for the chicken: paprika,garlic powder, onion powder, white ground pepper, and A1 rub, a dab of flour
I rubbed the seasonings on the chicken and lightly rubbed a dab of flour on. Then I sauteed it in a pan with just enough oil so it wouldn't stick. Cooked until it was golden brown, flipped and repeated. Then I topped each breast with a slice of cheese and sprinkled on the bacon crumbles. Placed a lid on the frying pan, turned off the heat and let it sit for a couple of minutes. Done! Serve with your favorite veggies, salad or whatever you choose.

Oh my gracious! September and school is back in session or for some it is just beginning. Like my LMSP! She started Kindergarten this year and she is loving it. She was so excited after the first day to come home and tell everyone that she "DID NOT" have to take a nap! We had all been telling her about K and naps. Well, jokes on us! They stopped nap time. She was like "there, see I TOLD you I won't taking no nap!" oh lawd help us! Or help that teacher! LOL
This photo was taken the second day of school, lawd have mercy look at that attitude!
LMSP says, after the second week of school, "I don't know WHY I have to go so much! Did you know I go like EVERYday to school?!?!" I'm laughing, she says "NOT funny" OMGosh, yes it is!

I have a BIG (15 lbs) black cat, Beau, who I love dearly but he should have been born an orange tabby because he is yellow. A scaredy cat! We had a mouse and he, Beau, stayed on top of the freezer. Would not even get off to go potty. He'd sit up there and cry and cry until I carried him to the litter box. I even put his food and water on top of the dryer. Beau, he's a lover, not a fighter and obviously not a mouser either.
I’m sitting in the waiting room at the orthopedic and these two little old ladies come in. One is clearly older but feisty. She is also a first time patient as I see the receptionist hand her the clipboard and dozens of forms like she did me. They sit down next to me and begin the process of filling them out.
Conversation starts: “Okay I know you name and address, next it asks for your birthday”
Tiny lady: 3/26/36
Helper: okay, now it asks for employer or job status
Tiny: retarded
Helper: giggles, you mean retired
Tiny: NO retarded mama always said so
Helper: fits of giggles, You’re so funny, I’d put retired but how do you spell it?
Tiny: R E T A R I E D
Helper: that doesn’t look right RETIRIED, that’s better
Next question(Now they are on the page with medical questions):
Do you or someone in your family have ANY of the following?
Helper begins to read the list and Tiny is answering along, when she gets to DVT, Tiny says “I don’t know, never heard of it, what is it?
Helper: I have no idea
Tiny: well then say no cause if I got it, I don’t know it and don’t want to
Again fits of giggles
These two are keeping me entertained.
FINALLY Tiny gets called back (I said Tiny because she’s not even 4 feet tall and probably only weights about 75 lbs, little woman but adorable with a mega watt smile) so she walks by and stops, turns and hands Helper her HUGE thick novel she’s carrying around, starts off again, stops, turns and hands her the purse that is almost too big for her, begins to walk again, stops and starts laughing. Holds her cane towards Helper and says “want to hold my cane too?” the two of them crack up. Helper says “go on now with yourself and behave. I have enough of your stuff to keep up with, now go!”
I am cracking up, now I see why folks wear Depends! You need them if you go to the dr and these two characters are around. But I love them and want to hang out with them! What a great sense of life and fun they have.

*My turn finally comes and I’m called back. Over an hour of waiting, so I’m in the exam room and I hear this OFF beat horrible singing coming closer to the door “come on let me love you now, baby let me love you now” and the door opens! IT’S THE DOCTOR! OMGosh, I’ve never seen him and this is awkward. Tall, thin, older gentleman and seems very proper. Ask a few questions, does a quick exam of my shoulder, tells me his opinion and out the door he goes. Takes less than 5 minutes. As soon as he opens the door he starts singing again, “oh baby, let me love you now” AWKWARD

Saw this car at Wal-Mart when I was going in to the pharmacy. I've seen it several times but decided to take a photo this time. It is "hand" painted. Front is black the back half is covered in different fish, all with funny facial expressions.
*After the doctor visit, I had two in the same day, I stop at W’s store. He busted his phone the day before so I can’t text him or call to tell him what happened and he likes for me to. So I pop over to the store, it is literally around the corner. I’m walking around looking for him, and head toward the stock room. I’m peeking in the door but can’t see past all the boxes. The sign says “NO ONE Permitted past this door” and I honor that. So I’m waiting to see if I can catch a glimpse of him and I hear his voice. So I know he’s in there. All of a sudden a BOOMING voice behind me says “HE’S NOT BACK THERE” scares me to death, I almost jumped through the door. I turn and there’s this BIG man and he laughs then apologizes for scaring me. I said “with a jittery laugh, well he might not be” He laughs again and walks off. About that time a worker sees me and comes to ask what I need. I tell him I’m there to see W and he goes and gets him. We talk a minute and then he walks me out of the store. As we are headed to the front we pass the BOOMING voice man. When he sees me, he turns his head and starts to chuckle. I start laughing as well. W looks at me like I’m crazy but keeps telling me what was going on in the store. As we pass, the guy leans over and says “I see you found him” and I laugh. “Yep and he was back there.” W says “You asked a customer if I was in the back?? Why would you do that?” I said, NO and told him what happened. I’m laughing, he just looks at me like I’ve lost my mind, shakes his head and we keep walking. I guess you had to be there, because it was funny. I thought the guy was quick on his feet and it just struck me as funny. I’m still chuckling about it.

  1. People watching can keep me entertained for hours. Doctor's offices are great for that.

  2. Only you could have that much fun in a doctor's office. Although that singing thing, that's mighty weird.
    Gotta try that recipe. I love Pepper Jack!

  3. Your doctor story was so entertaining. I laughed when I saw your recipe because that is what I made for dinner last night -- only I used cheddar and Parmesan. I must try pepper jack - thanks

  4. Oh that LMSP cracks me up. I need o try that chicken recipe....although with all the picky peeps in my house I'm the only one that needs it.

  5. I love meeting crazy people up the street. I had one gentleman offer to dance with me today when we kept nearly walking into each other. It makes the day livelier.
