If I have insurance, I wouldn’t have to make hubby worried sick about hospital bills and expenses. I could even get my son a student medical insurance, which he can use even when he’s gone off to college. I think it’s only wise to get insurance for the whole family, as we never know what lies ahead for each one of us in the future.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Puppies vs. Babies. All opinions are 100% mine.
How would you like someone's puppy or baby win $5,000? No, it's not a separate contest, but just one where are voted upon. It's the Puppies vs. Babies online contest, and the choice is between a cuddly baby or a cute puppy. Of course, If you are a mom like me, I am sure you will go for voting a cuddly baby over a cute pup. I would definitely vote for a cute baby, than a cute puppy. Babies are adorable, regardless of how they would look like in the first few weeks, and they do not have that stinky smell of a dog. Although some babies look like aliens or the smell rancid stale milk at times, but would always appeal to me. Puppies however, may just be as cute but not that cute to choose it over a little human being, which is actually a copy of myself.. But then again, that is just my opinion. You too can have your say on this Puppies vs. Babies Online contest when you decide who is cuter.
So cast your vote. If you can get your votes in from now until November 23rd, then be counted in for the decision on who will ultimately be the top baby or puppy to win! That's a whooping $5,000 for the lucky puppy or baby!
So head on to the voting site and cast your vote today. Please comment on this post about Puppies vs. Babies, and who you think deserves the prize. The Puppies vs. Babies Photo that wins in this contest can be found at ().

4 chicken thighs
2 chicken breasts with skin and backbone, halved crosswise
2 teaspoons salt, plus more to taste
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 large red bell pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
3/4 cup water
1 ( 28-ounce) can diced stewed tomatoes with juice
1 small can of mushrooms
3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
3 tablespoons drained capers
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves
1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh basil leaves
1. Sprinkle the chicken pieces with 1 teaspoon of each salt and pepper. Dredge the chicken pieces in the flour to coat lightly.
2. In a large heavy saute pan, heat the oil over a medium-high flame. Add the chicken pieces to the pan and saute just until brown, about 5 minutes per side. If all the chicken does not fit in the pan, saute it in 2 batches. Transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside.
3. Add the bell pepper, onion and garlic to the same pan and saute over medium heat until the onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add water reduced by half, about 3 minutes.
4. Add the tomatoes with their juice, broth, capers and oregano, and mushrooms. Return the chicken pieces to the pan and turn them to coat in the sauce. Bring the sauce to a simmer. Continue simmering over medium-low heat until the chicken is just cooked through, about 30 minutes for the breast pieces, and 20 minutes for the thighs.
5. Using tongs, transfer the chicken to a platter. If necessary, boil the sauce until it thickens slightly, about 3 minutes. Spoon off any excess fat from atop the sauce. Spoon the sauce over the chicken, then sprinkle with the basil and serve.
And now, I made it my entry for FTF this week. Bona Pettit!

Anyway, my other friend and I were talking the other day and we got to talk about our lives, our dreams and aspirations, as well as our plans for the future. Since both of us moms already, we discussed the things we yearned for the most as far as our family is concerned. Obviously, no matter what we wish for, it’s always centered on our respective families.

You Are a Crock Pot
You are slow paced and steady. You don't rush to be the first to get anything done.
You know that good things come to those who wait. You are willing to sit back and watch it all unfold.
You are community minded. You try to pitch in and help wherever you are needed.
The smallest and most boring things in life make you the most content. Your happiness is not complicated.
