Hello everyone. I am so sorry that I haven't spoken for a while...I have not been on the internet for a couple of days. I have been so busy! Yesterday was soooo traumatic, but also all at the same time it was miraculous too! I had to go to bring my Granny some dinner and Jared and I were cruising down the road and there was a red car in front of us. All of the sudden, this white car just cut her wheel over real hard and just drove right in front of the red car. The red car slammed on her brakes, but she T-Boned the white
car! If I would have been up the road about 2 seconds more it would have been us! I just sat there and cried. It makes me very nervous to drive anyway and I don't like taking Jared out anywhere because of lunatics like that. But, I have to say that God saved us from the accident for sure. I am so thankful. Then, when I got home...I turned on the news...oh my gosh! The news had a helicopter in my home town and two buildings were on fire there! One lady's store burned completely down and she lost tons of furniture. My mother in law is friends with her. But what really terrified me was some of my very good friends' beauty salon was right in amongst the fire! Right beside the furniture store (actually one of the beauticians that works there is our own Amber's sister in law!). Well I just started sobbing because they are such good friends and all I could do is watch the TV. I couldn't get them on the phone at all. Well, believe it or not, I got them on the phone later and their salon did not burn down...as a matter of fact there wasn't even any smoke damage or a smell! THANK GOD!!! And most importantly, no one was hurt. So you see, even though I went through the ringer yesterday, it all turned out good.
 
FRUGAL TIP
When you get a new bar of soap, open it up and let it dry out. This can be accomplished by putting it in clothes drawers as a sachet. When they are fully dried, then use them as bath soap. You will find that they will last a whole lot longer.
 
RECIPE
Got this off the side of a generic seasoned bread crumb box. Yummy.
 
Chicken Scallopine
1 lb chicken scallops (Just cut chicken up in small pieces)
2/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 egg beaten with 1 tbsp water
2 tbsp butter or margarine
2 cups sliced mushrooms
1 small onion, halved and sliced
1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp thyme, crushed or 1 tbsp fresh
2 tbsp chopped parsley
 
Coat chicken with egg, then coat well with bread crumbs. In large skillet, brown chicken in butter on both sides. Remove and set aside. Add mushrooms and brown. Stir in soup, water, lemon juice, thyme and parsley. Return chicken to skillet. Simmer 5 minutes or until chicken is done. If desired, serve with egg noodles. Makes 4 servings.
