  1. I was going to put my recipe for Honey Mustard Chicken, and then saw that Whitetavern above has the exact same recipe with a different name-Chicken Diable sounds much fancier! This is a universal favorite around here. I make it for company if they have picky kids and it usually goes over well. I usually don't bake the whole hour or the meat is too dry (30-45 mins depending on thickness). We pour the sauce over rice. Yum! All it dirties is a few measuring implements and a 9x13 pan.
  2. My colleague had Pfizer back in Feb, and had a sore arm around the injection site for a long time (like needing to sleep on other side, feeling it when playing tennis, general tenderness). I just asked her about it again yesterday, and she said just in the last week she thinks it's better. She had no rash/bruising/itchiness--just the soreness.
  3. This one is aimed at even younger than the children's Bible's above: https://www.christianbook.com/the-bible-in-pictures-for-toddlers/ella-lindvall/9780802430588/pd/30589?event=ESRCN
  4. I would return if I were fully vaccinated, especially if other mitigation measures are in place like distancing and ventilation. If I was being extra cautious, I would wait until most/all of the other members were vaxxed as well. (Here many of the 65+ STILL are waiting for 2nd vaccine, and my life--with job, kids in school FT, husband (yet unvaxxed due to availability and teaching college)--make me more risky than if everyone around me was fairly isolated still.)
  5. Just clarifying-per the CDC, the person WITH Covid only needs to isolate for 10 days (not 14) from the start of symptoms or positive test, whichever was first. After that they cannot spread disease if they have been fever free for 24 hours and have improved symptoms. I would NOT have him retest. Someone who was positive may continue to have positive tests for up to 90 days, and NOT be contagious.
  6. I'd read that as they will match what you put in at a 15% rate--eg, if you put in $100, they add $15. Not sure about the max wording.
  7. Our family really liked Foyle's War, about a police inspector on the British homefront during WW2, filmed in the early 2000's maybe?. There were murders to solve, but I can't stomach NCIS graphic types, and these were not like that. My teens and husband enjoyed trying to figure out the mystery, and I enjoyed the characters.
  8. Just an FYI- Thinx (and other products like pads/tampons) are FSA eligible. In the last year we have not spent our usual FSA amount, so we've been able to spend on these. Since they're not cheap, that was nice to find out.
  9. Amen, eaglei. May God hold you and your loved ones near in this time. I'm so sorry for the recent loss of your husband. Grief on top of grief, yet joy that he and your son are together in heaven, and that you will see them again.
  10. The article your son wrote is beautiful, and shows the incredible love and faith of your family. May God continue to comfort you all in your loss.
  11. This is probably behind a paywall, but the NY Times has a graph that shows with vaccination rollout, new infections will be very, very low by June/July, if I'm reading the chart right. (And I hope I am!!) https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/01/24/us/covid-vaccine-rollout.html?action=click&algo=bandit-all-surfaces-geo3-alpha-02&block=more_in_recirc&fellback=false&imp_id=87734457&impression_id=548fdb12-5f48-11eb-9b77-e7b6eb357ca6&index=3&pgtype=Article&region=footer&req_id=499713371&surface=more-in-us-news&variant=4_bandit-all-surfaces-geo3-a
  12. So fun! Thanks for sharing that.
  13. I am so sorry. Prayers for you all.
  14. I haven't read the whole thread--maybe this has already been mentioned. When I got my vaccine yesterday I was given a flyer asking me to participate in the CDC v-safe program, which is an app that sends text messages at intervals post vaccine (daily x1 week after injection, then every week x5 weeks, and at 3, 6 and 12 months after the last dose). I think this is a great way for them to gets tons of data on the "safety" of the vaccine. My colleagues that were vaccinated in another location got the brochure as well. (And FYI, I got Moderna, and only complaint is mildly sore arm at injection
