Fire! (In my mouth)

So I got a little help from a box for last night's dinner. I am always hesitant of box dinners. This one included, rice, and different seasonings. You had to buy the chicken separately. Really it was so simple. I cooked up the rice in one pan, and the chicken in another. Just mix, and cook.

Part of the directions said that if you'd like more spice, then lightly crush the packet of chilies provided to release the seeds. I like my food spicy, so I though, "Oh, that will be good." So before I added the chilies I crushed them a little. Finished making the sauce and plated my dinner. We sat down to eat, and I thought that my lips were going to fall off. My mouth was on fire, and my lips were tingling! Note to self: Do NOT crush the chilies! The rice did help to mellow it out, but holy crap batman, there were still flames. Having said that, I would totally make this again! It was great. I just won't be crushing those chilies, haha!
Ryan and I were the only ones who ate this. Dylan can't have rice. So I cooked up some of the chicken separate for the boys and roasted a sweet potato. Really it wasn't any extra work, so it didn't seem like a big deal to make something separate for them.
Ryan is working today. All day. I hate when he works this much. Its really hard having NO help at all for days. It takes a lot out of me at times. Today being one of these days. Thankfully though, the boys are napping and I get a bit of peace and quiet.
Winter is still here. It is so stinking cold out today. Its windy, it is supposed to snow tonight too. It is supposed to be spring. But I guess no one told Mother Nature that. Well this is me tellling the old woman that it is SPRING not WINTER!
