Happy Father’s Day!! We almost didn’t post today but then figured there may be someone out there look for a little dinner inspiration and since this is perfectly us, a little grilling from Cade and sauciness from me why not, right?

Now let’s move on to what’s really on my mind and it has nothing to do with Father’s day. Sorry guys. But Cade, we sure adore you!!!

This is the only political rant I’ll ever make on here. I think. I’m pretty sure at least.

What is up with insurance? So you pay way more every month than what you need for a once or twice a year visit, but all of that money just disappears down the drain. Who is it going to? Why do they get to keep my money? Shouldn’t I get it back at the end of the year since we didn’t need it? Ok, last year we definitely used it and it saved us with so many hospital stays and then the NICU, but still.

My gosh this world is a mess, so I think I’ll just pull up a chair, let Cade grill some chicken and asparagus and devour this grilled chicken with lemon cream sauce.

Just because you grill your chicken doesn’t mean you can’t have a sauce. Am I right? And sauces make everything all better in my book. Really though, I love a good sauce. I even dipped my chicken nuggets in honey growing up. True story. And I bet I’d still like it if I had it again. Maybe I will…

Would you all disown me forever if I posted a chicken nugget recipe with honey? I’m doing it. I don’t care. It’s happening.

  • Seriously? Without insurance your lengthy hospital stay would have cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. You’re waaaay ahead of the game.

    • when it’s used, yes it’s a life saver and we’ve had times without insurance so we know the blessing. In fact we know it better than many people that take it for granted. But what about a member of the family that does a well check every year but that’s it and never gets sick so a well check is $300 some odd dollars but insurance is that every month. Weird right?

      • Frannie is right. Insurance is a gamble. Where do you think all the money came from for your hospital stays? Not just from your family’s monthly premiums. The money has to be pooled together from everyone buying insurance fron that company. Some of us use more and some less. Having said all that, the healthiest people get the least benefits from their insurance investment, which can hurt. Lemon sauce looks great!
