Hey everyone. How's it going? We are really getting quite a few people in this group! I appreciate everyone's input...I really like the ideas floating around. Today I had to find and round up people for a mini blood drive. I had to gather up people with O+ blood for Shelby (my friend's baby). In case she needs blood, my friends preferred that she receive it from someone she knows. Also, apparently there is some sort of pesky little virus called CMV that 75% of the population carries that doesn't hurt regular people, but Shelby cannot have blood with it in it. So they wanted several people to donate in case one didn't work out there would be an alternate or two. So my sister in law and my husband went and several others that had the blood type.
It was a wild day. I hope she gets out of the hospital soon. Tomorrow is my husband's grandma's birthday party. I haven't done dishes, I haven't done laundry...I haven't went grocery shopping...I HAVEN'T PAID THE BILLS! It is was a crazy week. I hope everyone has a good weekend and be careful of the crazy people on the roads....want you all around next week! Be safe!
Instead of using paper towels for washing windows and mirrors (which are pricey) try using old newspapers next time. Simply crinkle them up and wipe away. They are nice because there is no lint left on the windows and the ink actually helps clean and leaves a nice streak-free surface. I just keep a stack under my kitchen sink with the window cleaner (which, by the way, can be made using vinegar or ammonia of course). This can also be used on glass top tables and t.v. screens.
This is my husband's grandma's recipe...very good...
3 Tbsp margarine
1 onion, chopped
1 stalk of celery chopped
2 cups cooked chicken
6 oz uncooked fine spaghetti
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 can mushrooms
1/2 cup grated parmesan chees
Melt margarine in skillet. Add onion and celery and cook until it is clear. Arrange chicken in a layer over this, add spaghetti (broken into small pieces). Mix salt, pepper, cream of chicken soup, and broth. Pour this over spaghetti, being careful to moisten all spaghetti. Place mushrooms over top. Sprinkle parmesan cheese and paprika. Cover and cook over full flame until steam escapes. Turn immediately to simmer for 30 minutes. Makes 4-6 servings. (Note: Does well in electric skillet, may need to stir a couple of times to prevent spaghetti from sticking).
I hope you all have a great weekend!!!! Alice...SAHM to Jared 3 1/2 months old
