Steak and biscuits!

Alrighty! There's a lot going on here! I took a stab at making home made biscuits, and created my own steak marinade! 

Steak marinade: 
Soy sauce 1/3 cup 
Weschire 1/3 cup 
Garlic (I used the minced ones 1 tbsp)
Onions (I used the chopped onions 1/4 cup)
Dash Pepper and salt 
Then I allow steak to marinate for 6 hours 

Biscuits click the link (I also added raw honey to drizzle on top):

Not For Everyone

A group of older women asked if I had any children, when I said no they said "why not?" then another "what's wrong with you?" and another "how old are you?" then the last "you aint getting any younger!"

 My response was simple.

 "No, I am not getting any younger. Actually I'm getting older and wiser. With that said, why bring a child into this world when I am not wed? When I am not in a relationship? Why make a child suffer, because 'I'm not getting any younger?' NO Offense, this is not the time that you were raised in. I am not having a child just because everyone else is. Nor will I ever. Have you ever thought that I didn't want children? What if I had a condition to where I cannot have children? What if I just had a miscarriage? What if I'm a widow?"

the ladies moved in their seats, one even swallowed her spit very hard

"So ladies, in respect, instead of asking someone 'why?' answer all my questions and then think of this, why are you older women pressuring these younger women? Why do they HAVE to have a child to please you? You are not pushing them out, you are not caring for them, you are not waking up in the middle of the night, you do not know them. I'm aware everyone is titled to their opinions, which is why I'm expressing mine. Have a wonderful day."

 I'm sorry, but a child is a BIG deal. I know many women who are raising children and they are like superwoman. That wonderful life, as of right now and maybe never is not for me.All I have to say is this. who cares if a woman wants to sleep with however many people. Who cares if she has kids with so and so. Who cares if she never has kids! It's not up to you to judge someone and their life. If it doesn't effect you head on, then keep moving on. For those ladies who are doing whatever they want, be proud of it; and forget all the others telling you what you should do or how you should feel.

Chicken Fried Rice

Alrighty! So I love Chinese food but I hate the mass amounts of sodium and other things that's in there thats not good for you. So here I created an awesome recipe for a little healthier version. 

2 cups brown rice 
1 chicken breast 
1 1/2 cup carrots
Can of peas 
2 tablespoons of less or no sodium soy sauce 
1/2 to 1 cup of onion 
1 egg 
1 tablespoon water 
Another table spoon of water (my choice) or 1 table spoon of butter
2 table spoons of extra virgin olive oil

I decided to bake the chicken,30-45 min on 400 

In a bowl you mix the water and egg and add to pan. If you decided to use butter, melt the butter on low before you add the egg and water mixture. Cook egg on low also, I like to make sure it's fluffy then I let it sit. 

In a big pan, I used the olive oil to soften the onion, then I added carrots and peas

When the chicken is done, you cut it up into tiny squares or how ever big you prefer. 

Then I add in the cooked rice and chicken to my carrots, peas and onions. Then pour in the soy sauce. 

Before you add in the egg, cut it up and then add it in. 

Season to taste, I used garlic powder, salt and pepper. Everything used is either organic or gluten free :)

Names To Ghetto For Me

I typically don't watch The View. For some reason it's a really dry type of talk show for me; but I did check out one episode just to give it another shot. The episode I happened to watch, was when Raven Symone ranted about not hiring people with ghetto names. Check the video below:

I wonder why she would say that when she has walked out the house looking like THIS  ?

I also wonder, what someones name has to do with their ability to perform a job? Why should someones name cause them a chance to even be hired for a job? If you didn't know, people don't them selves it's up to their parents. Either way, saying you wont hire someone based off their name makes no sense.

It's like, not hiring someone because they are a different ethnicity, or to big or small for television, ALL things Raven Symone has mentioned that cost her gigs. She was very vocal about being on That's So Raven, and the producers telling her she needs to lose weight. If that moment was so heart breaking, just imagine what you are doing when you wont hire someone based off their name.Weight you can change and work towards losing, a name is harder.

I used to be a fan, but the pure ignorance that has escaped out of her mouth SINCE she's gotten this platform is disgusting. I'm also ashamed to even say I never missed an en episode of That's SO Raven. Does she not know that plenty of people with 'ghetto names' are the ones who supported her show? Does she not understand that those people with 'ghetto names' are the ones who are so proud to see someone like her on television?  Why am I asking these questions, obviously she knows. She just doesn't care. 

It took her awhile, but she did release a statement, part of which includes:

"My comments about discrimination have spun out of control" read the rest HERE
Despite her apology which I believe to have been written by her management staff, I elect not to be a fan of Raven any longer. My thoughts are similar to the video below...
