Nuts and Politics,
There was a segment on Good Morning America today about someone having anonymously given their church a lottery ticket worth $3,000,000. It happened in Port Jefferson, NY. Even the pastor said he wouldn't have donated the whole win to the church. The donor is remaining anonymous. He needs to, if his family got hold of him, they would murder him, I would. Of course the news is absolutely full of Obama's acceptance speech last night, because it happened on the anniversary of the Martin Luther King "I Have a Dream" speech they are linking it together as much as they can. Personally I will be so very glad when November 4 is over as the campaigning will be finished for a little while. Unfortunately, although we are in Canada, we get it plastered all over our TV as so many of our programmes come from the States. I always hated Bush, I wonder if this guy will do any better. Had I been in the States, I would have voted for Hillary Clinton, I would love to have seen her make it to the White House. Maybe next time. We'll see what kind of a job Obama does. Mike posted a new blog last night, a beautifully written description of a morning walk during his vacation. Plus pictures of drawings he made. I wish I could write like that. The following is a simple little chicken dish I invented one day down in NC. Because Bogue is the area where we lived, that's what I called it. Unfortunately I didn't take a picture of it. Chicken Bogue Serves: 2 Source: Jo's Invention 1/2 onion chopped 4 oz mushrooms sliced 2 chicken breasts, skinned and boned 1 tomato, chopped 1 tbs of salsa, to taste 1/2 C white wine seasoning Sauté onion and mushrooms in some olive oil, add chicken and brown on both sides, then add tomato, salsa and wine allow to simmer until chicken is done. Have a great day.
