We have the opportunity on the daily to make a positive impact on the world around us.
Whether one goes through their day searching for good deeds to be done,
or simply takes advantage of random opportunities to spread love,
every action (or inaction) has a resounding impact.
The question is: Is your impact today going to be positive, negative, or indifferent?
I have been told that one person can't make a difference.
I affectionately call these people "dummies"...
Those who actively try to hold the rest of us down,
those who would rather watch you drown than help you soar, those who can't grasp the power of positivity to create change.
Whether it's a great recipe found, or an uplifting story to share, you can be sure to find it here.
Let's start a Positivity Revolution, and drown out the dumb!

Mama Don't Cook

Times have changed. It used to be that the man would work hard in the office all day, come home to a sparkling house, homemade meal, and well-behaved children...Nowadays (thank Jesus), men and women are striving for equality, working their tails off at 9-5 jobs, coming home to cook dinner and enjoy a glass of wine together, and putting off having kiddos entirely is not an entirely strange lifestyle.

What happens when both partners are working crazy hours, and the last thing you want to do after a loooong day is cook a great meal. I want to put great food in my mouth, I just don't necessarily want to have to prepare it. I want to drink wine, zone out, and watch 'Cougar Town'.

Enter my new best friend: The Crock Pot.

I've been using this magic machine more and more, especially on days when I'm unsure if we'll be eating at 6 or 10pm. Lasagna was a hit (especially since it made for 3 lunch-leftovers), chicken is always my go-to, and this morning, it's pork.
I have on hand 1 pound of frozen pork chops, 1/2 of a sweet onion, 1 can of cream of mushroom condensed soup, 1 can of cream of chicken condensed soup, and 1 can of low-sodium chicken broth. I layer the onions on the bottom, and place the frozen pork right on top. No need to defrost, because I'm setting the timer for 13 hours (Yep, that's when I'll be back home tonight).
Add the soups, broth, and an extra can of water for good measure, and sprinkle with garlic powder and crushed red pepper. Tonight, I'll add some taters and green beans, and serve with a crusty roll. From what I've read, leftovers can be easily made into BBQ Pulled Pork, and I just so happen to have some homemade BBQ sauce on hand.

Looks disgusting now, but will taste amazing later! And bonus, it took me all of three minutes to put together.
