I Want To Cook Some REAL Food

We had houseguests yesterday, and again today, and tomorrow…mainly little guys having fun in the pool.  They are a blast…keep everyone entertained.  Hot Dogs and Peanut Butter Crackers are flying. 

Boy Wonder:  “These ballpark hotdogs taste just like the ballparks, don’t they?”

Red:  “Yeah, they taste just like a baseball!”, dead serious. 

Their enthusiasm for all things sports runs deep, obviously.

This Crispy Chicken recipe is getting rave reviews.  I want to try it soon, but I need corn flakes.  I used all our flakes in our last batches of Corn Flake Cookies  (I substitute Karo dark syrup for light, and make sure to warm the peanut butter prior to keep them from falling apart).

    You know I’m cooking for 15 people tonight and I wish you lived close and I would cook for you, too!! 🙂

    And about those cornflakes!

    Here’s the honest truth. I make a killer Hashbrown Casserole that uses cornflakes and butter for the topping. Everytime I make it, I find myself eating what is left of the cornflakes and butter right out of the bowl!!! Honest!!! I found myself thinking aloud the last time, “Dori, you have a real problem with food if you are now foregoing the milk over your cereal and opting for butter!!!”

    So, I can’t wait to try the chicken and cookies made out of Cornflakes!!!

    Hope you are seeing better today, my dear.

    The corn flake chicken is delicious! It was a favorite recipe several years ago, but I haven’t made it in quite a while. Thanks for reminding me. My mom used to make the same cookie recipe, but used Chex cereal instead of corn flakes. Yum!

Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)

"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
