My Favorite Movies


It doesn’t matter whether it’s winter or sick season for me as I personally love watching movies anytime of year. I’ve been known to watch movies in Spring, Summer, & Fall; just like I do in Winter. Watching my favorite movies keeps me relaxed at times or is just fun to do when there’s nothing better to do. Especially when you’re sick.

Suicide

Suicide Awareness Day: September 10th

Today I thought I would write a post that touches home to many people I know and I’m sure lots of strangers. I know it happens often and my family had to go through it a few years back with one of my uncles. Anyways, over the years I’ve heard many people say that people commit suicide because they’re selfish which isn’t the case at all. It’s because they’re hurting and are tired of the pain, it’s hurts the family’s of those who commit suicide when you say their family members committed suicide because they’re selfish when that definitely wasn’t the case.

In honor of suicide awareness day; September 10th, 2017 I would write a little bit about suicide awareness as I’m sure suicide has touched a lot of people’s lives including strangers who will be reading this. I personally am logically and need to see the facts/statistics written out so I can visualize them in my head to be able to comprehend them.


Facts & Statistics about Suicide:

  • Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States.
  • Each year 44,193 Americans die by suicide.
  • For every suicide 25 attempt.
  • Suicide costs the United States $51 billion annually.
  • On average, there are 121 suicides per day.
  • Firearms count for almost 50% of all suicides.
  • Men die 3.5x more often than women.
  • Suicide is the second leading cause of death for ages 10-24.
  • Suicide is the second leading cause of death for college-age youth and ages 12-18.
  • More teenagers and young youth adults die from suicide than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects, stroke, pneumonia, influenza, and chronic lung disease;  COMBINED!
  • Four out of five teens who attempt suicide have given clear warning signs.
  • Each day in our nation, there are an average of over 3,470 attempts by young people grades 9-12.

There’s some facts about suicide for y’all to think about! Hopefully this makes some people think twice before spouting off that the person/people who commit suicide are selfish because that isn’t the case, actually that’s far from it; it’s because the person who commits suicide is tired of hurting.

From the family member of a family who lost someone because they committed suicide please think twice before you say that to the family/friends of the person who committed suicide!

Hopefully this helps people out some!

Applebee’s Reviewย 

One of our favorites restaurants to eat at is Applebee’s. ๐ŸŽ I personally love it for most of the appetizers, the pasta ๐Ÿ dishes, the kiwi ๐Ÿฅ lemonade, & the chocolate desserts!

Anyways this past Tuesday we went to an Applebee’s in New Hampshire for suppa!

I had a kiwi ๐Ÿฅ lemondade, chicken wanton tacos ๐ŸŒฎ as an appetizer, & pasta ๐Ÿ for the main dish of my suppa!

I have to say the everything from the kiwi ๐Ÿฅ lemonade to the pasta ๐Ÿ dish I had was truly amazing!!! ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‹

The staff and atmosphere at Applebee’s is so amazing especially the ones in New England who’s decor is all about the professional sports teams in New England! โค๏ธ

I would absolutely recommend people eating at an Applebee’s ๐ŸŽ for a meal!

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Vinegar Sauceย 


Lamb Chops with Balsamic Vinegar Sauce: 

Ingredients: 

3/4 teaspoon dried rosemary 

1/4 teaspoon dried basil ๐ŸŒฟ 

1//2 teaspoon dried thyme 

Salt and pepper, to taste 

4 lamb chops, 3/4 inch thick 

1 tablespoon olive oil 

1/4 cup minced shallots 

1/3 cup aged balsamic vinegar 

3/4 cup chicken broth 

1 tablespoon butter 

1-2 tablespoons flour 

Directions:

In a small bowl or cup; mix together the rosemary, basil, thyme, salt, & pepper. Rub this mixture into the lamb chops on both sides. Place them on a plate, cover and set aside for 15 minutes to absorb the flavors. 

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place lamb chops in the skillet, and cook for about 3 & 1/2 minutes per side for medium rarer or continue to cook to your desired doneness. Remove from skillet, and keep warm on a serving platter. 

Add shallots to the skillet, cook for a few minutes, just until browned. Stir in vinegar, scraping any bits of lamb from the bottom of the skillet, then stir in the chicken broth. Add in flour to help thicken the sauce. Continue to cook and stir over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes, until the sauce has reduced by half. If you don’t, the sauce will be runny and not good. Remove from the heat, and stir in the butter. Pour over lamb chops. 

Serve and enjoy! โ˜บ๏ธ
{Serve over a bed of fresh greens and tomatoes ๐Ÿ…, or over a bed of rice with tomatoes ๐Ÿ… on the side.}

Pasta Birthday Supppaย 

My birthday is August 14th and every year I’m lucky to have such an amazing family who always asks me what I want for suppa also known as dinner ๐Ÿด, it’s sort of a family tradition that if it’s your birthday you always get what you want for suppa on your birthday ๐ŸŽ‰ no matter what. My favorite foods are all pastas ๐Ÿ, soups ๐Ÿœ, chocolate ๐Ÿซ, & lobster so naturally I’m always going to have 1 if not 2 or more of theses things for food on my birthday ๐ŸŽ‰ which I did this year! ๐Ÿ˜ For my birthday dinner ๐Ÿด I had pasta ๐Ÿ shells with my Momma’s delicious homemade sauce! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‹ It was beyond delicious ๐Ÿ˜‹ as always, And thankfully we’ve had enough for leftovers for the last few days! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป 

Pasta ๐Ÿ Birthday ๐ŸŽ‰ Suppa with My Momma’s Homemade Pasta Sauce: 

Ingredients: 

1-2 lbs Medium Pasta Shells 

1.75 lbs ground beef, cooked 

1.75 lbs ground Italian sausage, cooked 

2 lbs homemade crushed/mushed tomatoes ๐Ÿ…, drained of seeds

1-2 containers sliced fresh mushrooms, found at the grocery store 

1 Yellow bell pepper, sliced & chopp slices in half 

1 Red bell pepper, sliced & chopp slices in half 

1 Green bell pepper, sliced & chopp slices in half 

4-6 celery stalks, chopped thinly about 1 inch or so 

2-3 Zucchinis, sliced & chopped into quarters 

1-2 medium onions, chopped 

5-8 tbsps garlic powder or more if you really like garlic 

3-4 tbsps onion powder 

1-2 pinches salt 

1-2 pinches black pepper 

Parmesan cheese ๐Ÿง€, grated; for garnish 

Directions:

Prep everything that needs to be preped. Crush/mush two pounds of tomatoes ๐Ÿ… for the sauce base. Strain to get all the seeds out. Put the crushed/mushed base of the sauce into a sauce pain big enough to hold it all. 

Cook the ground beef until completely browned, then cook the ground Italian sausage until completely browned. Once the ground beef and ground sausage are completely browned, put both into the pan that the base to your sauce is in. Stir to combine. 

Sautรฉ the veggies individual until all of them – the mushrooms, bell peppers, onion, and celery are somewhat brown a little. Once they’re all sautรฉed add them to the same pain you did the ground beef. Stirring to combine. 

Add in the garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper. Stirring to combine. You may add more of these seasonings if you’d like, make it to you and your family’s tastes. 

This sauce is best if it’s made first thing in the morning so it can summer all day long. 

Once it’s getting close to suppa time, cook and drain the pasta ๐Ÿ shells according to package directions. 

In a suppa bowl, put the pasta in the bowl than top with the sauce. Garnish with grated Parmesan cheese. 

Serve hot and enjoy! โค๏ธ
