alexa pumpkins and dogcooltext143373007078232Forget the Ramen Noodles.Give these 2 ez recipes a try! First one goes in the Crock Pot!


1 package dry Italian-style salad dressing mix
1 can condensed golden mushroom soup (i substituted w/ cream of celery.You could probably choose any cream soup;ie cream of chicken would be perfect)

I couldn’t find the onion and chive cream cheese so i used a pinch of garlic powder.A pinch of onion salt wouldn’t hurt either along with regular (original)cream cheese.Caution;cream cheese is delicious. Buy 2 pkg so you have one handy to eat.

Add a drop of sherry wine if you like (and have any)

1 (8 ounce) container chive and onion cream cheese

2 tablespoons butter
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves


Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat, and stir in the salad dressing mix, mushroom soup, cream cheese until the sauce mixture is hot, smooth and well combined. Place the chicken breasts into the bottom of a slow cooker, and pour the sauce mixture over the chicken. Cover and cook on Low setting until chicken is tender, about 4 hours.

A little Meringue treat for dessert

2 large egg whites
2 drops fresh lemon juice, or more to taste
7 tablespoons white sugar, or more to taste
Instant chocolate pudding

Preheat oven to 225 degrees F (110 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with silicone baking mats.
Whisk eggs whites and lemon juice together in a bowl until thick, white, and foamy. Add sugar a spoonful at a time, whisking constantly, until meringue is shiny, thick, and holds its shape. using a butter knife shape into a “nest”

Bake in the preheated oven until dried and firm, about 1 hour. Turn off the oven, close the door, and cool until completely dried, about 1 hour more.
Spoon in a dollop of instant chocolate pudding in center

Yes, Ramen Noodles are okie dokie.In fact i’d buy stock in the company.

Make em a little different. I drain off the water, add butter THEN the little  packet of seasoning.Be a nice side dish for the crock pot chicken.

TODAY IN HISTORY: Thirty-seven years ago today, Polish Cardinal Karol Wojtyla was elected to the See of Peter and took the name John Paul II.  His was the third longest papacy in history, after St. Peter and Pope Pius IX.

TOMORROW: Pope Francis, the Synod Fathers and participants and invited guests will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Synod of Bishops by Blessed Paul VI from 9 am to 12:30 pm in the Paul VI Hall.

There is a fascinating report by Vatican Radio staff on the press briefing today in the Holy See Press Office and I’m sure you will be greatly interested in what the two guests at…

Venomous sea snakes are washing up in California for the first time in 35 years

The yellow bellied sea snake usually lives its entire life in the ocean, but unfortunately, we live in unusual times.

Rising ocean temperatures and the normal cyclical warming of the Pacific Ocean—known as El Niño—are thought to be driving the snakes to new areas, according to Heal the Bay, a non-profit environmental advocacy group.
