FOR TODAY November 2, 2011
Outside my window... Right now it's just beautiful, not a cloud in the sky, the sun is shining . . . but, it's very cold! This morning when I sent my husband off to work, it was a bone chilling 15 degrees!
I am thinking... About my sweet blogging friends, how wonderful you all are, and what blessings you all are in my life.
I am thankful for... The simple things in life - clothes, food and a warm home. I know that there are so many in the world who don't even have the basic necessities of life - I'm so thankful for mine.
From the kitchen...
BAKED EGG ROLLS
2 cups coleslaw mix
1 can (14 ounces) bean sprouts, drained
¼ cup chopped green onions
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tsp. grated ginger or ½ tsp. powdered ginger
2 cups finely diced cooked chicken, cooked ground pork or cooked ground beef
4 teaspoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
1 teaspoon canola oil
1 teaspoon brown sugar
Pinch cayenne pepper
16 egg roll wrapper
Coat a large skillet with cooking spray; add the first four ingredients. Cook and stir over medium heat until vegetable are crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Add meat; heat through.
In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch, water, soy sauce, oil, brown sugar and cayenne until smooth; stir into chicken mixture. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened; remove from the heat.
Spoon ¼ cup of chicken mixture on the bottom third of one egg roll wrapper; fold sides toward center and roll tightly. (Keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp paper towel until ready to use.) Place seam side down on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Spray tops of egg rolls with cooking spray. Bake at 425° for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Yield: 8 servings. Serve with sweet and sour sauce, yummy!
I am wearing... Blue pants, and floral shirt under a burgundy sweater, socks and my favorite shoes - Merrill Barefoots! No, I do not work for them - but I love these shoes!
I am going... To go have lunch with my two sisters and my mother! My sister is still home recovering from her hip replacement, so we are bringing lunch to her today!
I am reading... Anything on organization!
A scripture I love ...
"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."
I am hearing... Both of my husbands cell phones, beeping and buzzing like crazy! He forgot to bring them to work today . . . oops!
Around the house... The usual cleaning - I think dust bunnies really do multiply!
One of my favorite things... Crisp red apples, straight from the tree!
A few plans for the rest of the week:
Tonight - winterizing the trailer
Thursday - make apple pie filling for the freezer and a batch of apple sauce
Friday - ?
Saturday - odds and ends in the yard with hubby.
Sunday - church
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
