ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
NOBEMBER 28TH, 2009
This was the scene when I looked out my window on Friday morning! We were blessed with our first snow of the year. It was very wet and a lot of parts of town didn’t get as much as we did, but it was beautiful and sure did add to our Christmassy feeling yesterday.
DS#5 and #6, DDIL #5 and DD and I had a great day and I managed to get several Christmas gifts and even a few baby gifts too!
Today is my day to work on making some gifts and to do a little laundry here. That part of my household chores has fallen aside the past week and I do need to do some catching up.

November is the month when we remember all the things we
are thankful for and the One that makes them possible
The God Who Answers Prayer
I praise and honor you, Father, because you are a God who loves to a
nswer prayer, and who begins to answer even before I begin to pray
DS#5 and his wife were looking over the menu at the Main Street Café yesterday. Their food is really good and my favorite there is always the Rueben Sandwich. It is huge so DD and I split one. It was delicious as
My kitchen is pretty quiet these days, but I do plan to make something today as I’m done with my leftovers now and need something new to eat.
Here is one of my favorite quick and easy meals:
When my children were young they like this dish and I still do.
Chicken ala King
(you can also use leftover turkey)
1-2 cups leftover chicken cubed or canned chic
ken white meat
1 can mixed vegetables drained
1 cup milk
1 stick butter
3 tablespoons flour
Salt and pepper to taste
Melt 1 stick of butter in pan, slowly stir in flour un
til it well mixed
Add milk slowly to this mixture and stir on medium heat til it thickens.
This makes a white sauce so you just thicken it to whatever consistency you like. You can add more or less as needed.
Add the leftover chicken and vegetables and cook til all is thoroughly heated through. Salt and pepper to taste.
You can serve this on biscuits or toast or flaky pastry shells. Its quick and easy for when you don’t want to spend a lot of tim
I’m guessing at the measurement for the milk and flour as I usually don’t measure them out, so you may have to adjust them slightly.
ATTIRE FOR TODAY
Here is DS #5 outside the Army/Navy Store yesterday. We always look in there as you just never know what you might find.
It will be in the up 40’s they say and maybe party sunny but I think a coat will be needed for sure.
Dear Lord, thank you for being our shepherd, guiding us through this life with love
Please pray for God's protection of
our troops and HIS wisdom for their
Lord, hold our troops in
your loving hands.
Protect them as they protect us.
Bless them and their families for the
selfless acts they perform for us
in our time of need. I ask this in the
name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
GOD BLESS YOU!
I sure had a lot of fun with these guys yesterday. Today I’ll be a busy bee at home so even though I’ll miss them and all the rest of my babes too. It’ll be good just to have the day to myself.
DD did asked me for dinner, but I think I’ll just stay home and get some things done…her hubby makes some wonderful meat pies and beans and rice and that is what they are having tonight.
Here we are at DS#3’s house making snowflakes last year.
