Coughing Attack? Raise Those Arms!


Today was a fun day at work. We went to Luby's for lunch, but I didn't take a picture because I'm still a little shy about the whole blog thing. I haven't told anyone at work, but I probably will one day.

I had half of the Baked Almondine fish with squash, and you guessed it, some creamy mac 'n cheese! Oh so good. I'm going to have to get a recipe for the baked almondine to try at home!

We also shared a creamy cheesecake-like creation for dessert. It had the crumbly graham-cracker crust, but the filling was a lot creamier.

We then had a team-building event for the rest of the day. Bowling! I was more of a cheerleader than a bowler since I'm carrying my own personal bowling ball everywhere I go. It was still fun getting to see everyone have a good time.

By the way, I think I might have had a contraction. I'm not completely sure, though. It was either that or the baby was really pushing up against my stomach.

I can't wait!!!


I came home and made one of my favorite Chinese dishes, Sesame Chicken & steamed broccoli over brown rice!!!

I hardly ever order this at restaurants because the chicken is always fried, and I've only found one restaurant that actually cooks it without frying it. That's why I love, love, love this recipe. It's simple to make and it's the healthiest I'm going to get to a healthy Sesame Chicken!

  • 1/4 cup flour
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 lb chicken tenders
  • 1/4 soy sauce (low sodium)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • sesame seeds

You place the flour, salt, pepper and chicken tenders in a bag and shake, shake, shake!

Shake your booty!

Then you cook the chicken in a non-stick pan with some PAM or non-stick pray. You cook for about 7-10 minutes or until the chicken is done and then remove the chicken from the pan.

In the same pan, add the soy sauce, sugar & sesame oil. Cook that over low heat until the sugar melts and then add the chicken back to the pan.

Coat the chicken with the sauce and then top with sesame seeds.

Yummy yummy!

By the way, I learned something new today! I've been having more coughing attacks this last month of pregnancy, anything will get me going. This time it happened at work and I couldn't get it to stop. One of my co-workers told me to raise my arms, and that actually worked! Stopped right away, apparently raising your arms opens up your wind pipe.

Now I know how to tackle those coughing attacks!
