Week 29 Saturday (8/2/14)

Recipe Review              

Today’s Recipe and Location:           Chicken with Mustard Cream Sauce
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 196 calories per serving, if 8 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         This is just creamy goodness. The mustard lends an unexpected flavor to the chicken. I made a sammy out of the chicken and since we halved the chicken breasts I had two of them.  The calorie count is so low it was filling to have used two in the sandwich.  This is a great main dish or I would use it in a sammy again.

Random Reflections           

Yard Art

       The most meaningful thing in my garden came from my best friend, Donna. After my late shelties Zoe and Zeffe passed away, Donna gave me a plaque for the garden for each of them. For sixteen years, they were the most important thing in my life. These adorable little plaques make me smile and remember how they brought such joy to my life. I miss them both, but the happy memories are always nearby when I think of them.

Helpful Home Hints

         Now the summer is half over and we have experienced a large number of storms, you may want to clean up those windows. We are now in Week 29 of this blog and I want to share again my wonderful recipe for glass cleaner that Lois, a Curves, friend shared with me.  Here it is:

         The recipe:
                  1 pint of isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol 90%
                  1 teaspoon Joy dishwashing soap
                  ½ cup sudsy/cloudy ammonia (found at Amstads in Batavia –                   other stores may carry it but that is where she bought hers).

Directions:  Add all ingredients to a gallon jug and fill the remainder with water.
