Happy New Year 2013!

Happy New Year! My last post was back in August 2012. Six months ago many changes had taken place for us, and now yet again more things are changing and yet some old things are returning. For the new year I'll start off by posting some pictures of my delectable creations and see how long into the new year I'll keep at it :) For tonight's dinner I made Chicken Tenders with Pineapple Sauce which is a variation of momma's famous Hawaiian Chicken. I accompanied the meal with Homemade Creamed Corn and a light Avocado, Tomato, Chick Pea Salad.

My #1 customer was very happy with dinner tonight! 



In jaw-news, my shoulder and neck pain has recently been confronted and a series of exercises given to me by my physical therapists. These exercises have helped tremendously and just within the past few days have I begun to really notice some great differences in regards to my range of motion in my shoulder. About a month ago I went in for an MRI as was advised by my orthopedic doctor who which I have a follow-up appointment with tomorrow morning, to get a scope on the knob sticking out of my collar bone and figure out what was causing it/wrong.

The results showed nothing severely wrong, and only a mild indicator of fluid around that joint in my collar bone and a slight sign of arthritis. He suggested a cortisone shot, and physical therapy. I opted for the second option and chose to hold off if at all possible on the first. My knob was extremely sensitive at this point and previous chiropractic measures had proven unsuccessful. Now, I have had great success with physical therapy alone, yet my knob remains not as sore but still very visible. We shall see. At the PT they work with my right arm and shoulder to strengthen it through means of massage and other techniques, with hopes to reduce/release this fluid in my joint. Stay tuned for more recipes and updates!

Happy New Year!
