  • Got Thanksgiving leftovers?

    This week’s recipes are good if you have a little leftover turkey or ham and are tired of sandwiches.
    The first recipe is delicious and extremely versatile.  You can bake it in a casserole and serve it hot over chow mein noodles.
    Or, if you don’t have time to cook it, or your oven’s not working, or whatever, you can serve it cold on salad greens and sprinkle chow mein noodles on top and call it Crunchy Chinese Chicken Salad!

  • Trees... fresh-cut, live or artificial?

    Picking out the perfect Christmas tree is serious business for me.  Some may find it a trivial chore but I want a tree that will be worth the effort of cleaning, moving furniture, hauling boxes, lights, step ladders and more.  But once the mundane is done then the fun begins.  Each ornament that adorns the tree has a story to tell about my grandparents, parents or me.  The tree is indeed important because it holds the past. And it must hold the past, in the form of many beloved ornaments, securely and with style.
