Sweet & Sour Apricot Chicken



This Sweet & Sour Apricot Chicken is the easiest dinner to throw together! It's ready in 30 minutes or less and it is totally delicious! The sauce is made with apricot jam and it's got the perfect amount of sweet with a little spice. This is a recipe you will want to add to your dinner rotation! Make it with me!




Apricots are everywhere right now! I wanted to create an easy recipe that calls for this seasonal ingredient! You can use fresh apricots if you wanted to and mash them up before adding it to the sauce, or just use any jar of apricot jam! The choice is yours!


The beauty of this recipe is that it is semi homemade! We are using fully cooked, frozen popcorn chicken and apricot jam. This helps to save time! You can also use the ready made frozen brown rice from Trader Joes to make this recipe even quicker! I like to make my brown rice in my Instant Pot!



This recipe can be as spicy as you want to make it! The heat is coming from the crushed red pepper flakes! Simply add more if you like it, and skip it if you don't! I like a little heat, so a 1/2 teaspoon does the trick!

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
