These are things I have learned along my journey...some learned by mistake,
some by chance and some you just have to do no matter what.
Bonus for staying with me - Recipe at the end.
~Life happens…and I am so glad it does.
~Never let your bra strap fall over the dasher in the middle of your washing machine. It is unbelievable how far the elastic strap can stretch. What remains is a curly strap from then on.
~Birds and squirrels do not like dried red beans…even though they are considered a seed.
~Never drop a high temp hot glue gun in your lap while wearing shorts. When the glue is removed…so is the skin underneath. Results = another flaw.
~Spray paint and a humid day do NOT mix.
~Toddlers do not like brussel sprouts. They turn their faces wrong-side-out and make them gag.
~Never put tea on to brew and leave the room to go read blogs.
~Waiting three months to balance your checkbook is not a great idea.
~Letting your daughter date will result in marriage and a son-n-law :)
~Tips for eating at family reunions and church covered-dish fellowships:
Just because it looks good…its not. Just because it doesn’t look good…it might be. If you want to take your dish back home for supper make a casserole. Cheese covered casseroles are mystery dishes. No one knows what lies underneath all that gooey good cheese so they will not put it on their plate. They just do not know what they are missing. Results = you don’t have to cook supper. Recipe to follow.
~Everyone cannot cook…they try…bless their hearts.
~Never laugh with your mouth full of grits. The results are not pretty.
~Do NOT let your friends visit you after a C-section birth…they WILL make you laugh at some point before leaving you in pain with a smile on your face.
~You can not flush a piece of fried chicken down the toilet.
~Never let your 16 year old drive away with an almost empty tank of gas and no money. They never look at the gas gauge. Results = A panicked phone call home after pushing the car out of the road. *This happened to me, not my daughter*
~Cats like dill pickles.
~Talking on the phone with your daughter will cause an hour to pass quickly.
~My son-n-law's cell phone and the bottom of the ocean are well acquainted...I wonder if shrimp like to talk on the phone?
~Jesus loves you, yes He really does. :)
Thanks for hanging with me.
Chicken Broccoli Casserole
…the yummy mystery dish
2 large chicken breasts, cooked and chopped
1 bag frozen broccoli florets, however I believe fresh would be better
1 can cream mushroom soup
1 cup mayo
2 T. finely chopped onion
2 eggs, beaten
Pinch of curry
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
Mix together soup, mayo, eggs, curry and onion.
Toss chicken and broccoli together and add a little of the soup mixture, stirring well. Pour into a sprayed casserole dish and top with the remainder of the soup mixture. Sprinkle cheese on top. Bake at 375* 20-30-minutes.
This mystery casserole covered in gooey good cheese is delish…if only the people who are afraid of casserole mysteries would just try it! Well…all’s well that ends well...I didn’t have to cook supper! YaY!
Don’t you just love this spring time weather we are having?
My little English peas are looking good in the garden!!
My word for 2010-Experience
I’ve experienced life and all its mysteries
Spring is here at last...
