Thursday Dinner: Skinless Chicken Thighs and Organic Carrot Stir Fry!

This was wicked easy to assemble. I seasoned and marinated the chicken for 30 minutes, diced the carrots and prepared the noodles.

Once the chicken was browned, I add the carrots till brown. The noodles finished off this one dish meal. And I need to mention that I used a gluten free soy sauce!

What a delicious weekday meal.

Thursday Thoughts ~ April 9, 2015

There has been some backlash regarding #ImNoAngel campaign. So the Lane Bryant CEO appeared on HuffPost Live to give us the intentions of the campaign!

Teaching is often thought of as a thankless job, but this former student has been thanking his high school teachers with big checks. Now that's wicked sweet thing to do don't you think?

The new Maya Angelou postage stamp was unveiled in a dedication ceremony Tuesday morning but the quote wasn’t hers. All I can say is "Yikes"!

ABC News has confirmed Monday that Bruce Jenner will be sitting down with Diane Sawyer on a two-hour interview, at the end of this month.

I'm actually looking forward to hearing Bruce share his transition experience. And kudos to the family for not speaking on his behalf.

Tuesday Dinner: Sauteed Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs and Organic Green Beans

One of the benefits of my low acid diet is quick and delicious meals that don't require many ingredients! Just some Mrs. Dash original seasoning and Extra Virgin Oil Olive to make this meal!

A New Makeup Table

Hubby suggested exchanging my old makeup table for this nice glass table when he saw how wobbling the previous one was.

It just needed a bit of dusting and cleaning the glass before I set up my area. I'm so glad I agreed because I'm really enjoying doing my makeup now! Doesn't it look marvelous?

If your considering creating a vanity/makeup table, look around your house. Maybe there's a table that isn't being used. You don't have to spend a lot of money to create your space.

Banana Cream Pie ~ "Yes, I Made This"!

I was first introduced to this Banana Cream Pie recipe in 2007. It's from Mr. Food's Quick and Easy Diabetic Cookbook.

As I said back then, "My husband and son just love this recipe and your family will too. Low on calories, fat and sugar but high on taste and eye appeal. Consider serving this dessert, at your next family gathering."

Gwynnie Bee: Tbags Los Angeles Peasant Top

This is my second round sporting the Tbags Los Angeles Peasant Top! I love the light weight fabric, multi-print and fit!

That's the cool thing about Gwynnie Bee. Wear an item as much as you, send it back~free postage bag and you can 're-closet' it!

HuffPost Live: Is The Term 'Plus-Size' Is Harmful To Self-Esteem ?

Several plus-size models want to change the modeling world's beauty standards by dropping the ‘plus’ in plus-size with their new campaign.

The organizer, Ajay Rochester, joined Nancy Redd, Tess Munster and Chanel Parks discuss the #DropThePlus campaign.

Well as a plus size person, I love that it's a separate industry. When I'm looking to go shopping online, I just type in plus size and have an variety of terrific stores to chose from. Ask a plus size designer about cutting the fabrics so that they're flattering for us.

In my opinion, this is the year of the plus size girl-woman. From Tess Munster being signed to a major modeling company to many celebrities launching or becoming the face of clothing lines and finally, having designer swimsuits available. "I'm so happy about that"!

You can call me curvy, busty or plus size. I'm okay with that. I know it. I own it!
