Need a little kick in the pants to take charge of your life and your health? Check out Steven Rankin’s story. While serving as a sheriff’s deputy in south Georgia in 2006, he made what he thought was a routine traffic stop late at night. While simply trying to tell a driver to turn his music down, Steven was shot point blank in the face, the bullet destroying the right side of his jaw and fracturing his C1 vertebrae. It remained lodged in his spine for four years and led to a whole slew of health problems that his doctors wouldn’t acknowledge could be attributed to, you know, a bullet being stuck in his neck.
Sun-dried tomato chicken pasta is one of our family’s new favorite meals. While it meal takes a little longer to make than some of my other recipes, it’s so worth it! I made it twice in less than eight days and still got a “YAY!!” from the kids both times. It’s even better as leftovers. I hope you like it as much as we do.
