Late introduction

I'm new to the blogosphere, so please bare with me. I'm currently using my janky cell phone camera, and still trying to figure out layouts etc. Trust all will be better soon. *wink*

Opi Is the Truth!

OPI is the truth!

Goodness gracious! Never in my life have I used a nail polish that stays on during wear and tear!
Let me tell you! I cut up the chicken, cleaned the chicken. Cooked the whole meal. Washed my hair, took a shower, gave my daughter a bath. And the polish is still intact! Wowzers!
Now I believe I've used opi in the past when I went to the nail salons, but that wasn't very often. Maybe a few times a yr. (I can count on one hand). And I always thought they did something 'special' to make your nail polish last. Nope...I must say that this brand is going to turn me away from the bss and drugstore brands.


Color: Do you lilac it? (Yes I know it's very late in the season for this, but I totally adore this color, and was too excited to get it on my nails)
Base coat: Loreal
Top coat: Sally Hansen

What's For Dinner?

Oven Fried Chicken, Garlic butter biscuits and collard greens!

I wasn't sure what I wanted to cook for dinner, but soon realized that I haven't had cornbread in awhile. I decided on oven fried chicken, and collards greens with cornbread! Unfortunately, I'm always finding ways to spice up my food, and decided on throwing a can of creamed corn into my cornbread mix. Guess what? The corn was spoiled, black pieces of lord knows what was floating around in my precious mix. I ended up trashing it, and quickly decided on making biscuits. But I had to think quick:

Fast Garlic Butter Biscuits:
2 cups pancake mix
1/2 cup milk
garlic seasoning ( I eyeballed it)
Sprinkle of paprika
Tblsp of melted butter
Scoop with spoon or ice cream scoop onto a greased pan and bake for 10-15 mins on 340.
I didn't want them to burn, so I checked them occasionally.

Oven Fried chicken
Whole chicken or parts
Clean with lime juice, or vinegar, hot water
Dunk in buttermilk
Dunk in bowl of seasoned flour
Place on greased pan
Cook for an hour on 400.

For the collards greens, I took the easy route and warmed up some good ole Glory greens. :)
