Chopper Bargain

If you were expecting a motorcycle, sorry.  I’d like one of those too, but don’t think it’s in my future.      This is a 3½ cup chopper from Kitchenaid.  I think it usually sells for about $40, but today (thank you Brad’s Deals), $29 with free s&h with code BRADFREE.  Several colors.

These are so inexpensive, and cute.  Different colors and sizes are different prices.  I like the “black Lace” at $10.99.  According to the reviews, size up.

I love this idea.  Herbs in the kitchen, or decorative plants over your loveseat.

Side For T-day

My cousin suggested that I make a noodle (lukshon) kugel for Thanksgiving.  I’ve made it before, but never with a recipe, so it was hit or miss.  I figured I’d better find a recipeI like.  This one looks pretty simple, and with a few little changes, will be mine.  If I’m not too lazy, perhaps I’ll make a savory one too, by eliminating the sugar and raisins, and adding S&P, sauateed mushrooms (or canned),and onions.
Noodle Kugel

1/2 pound wide egg noodles
1/2 stick butter, melted
1 pound cottage cheese
2 cups sour cream
1/2 cup sugar
6 eggs
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Boil the noodles in salted water for about 4 minutes. Strain noodles from water.
In a large mixing bowl, combine noodles with remaining ingredients and pour into a greased, approximately 9-by-13-inch baking dish.

Bake until custard is set and top is golden brown, about 30 to 45 minutes.
I’ve been watching this watch for quite a while.  This is the lowest price ($19.99) I’ve seen it at, and  I have “better” watches, but I always seem to go to Timex. The large face, and Indiglo will work well with my poor vision.  Please note that each color has it’s own price, but there are several at this price.

A Quick Bargain Too

My grandson is way too young for these, but they are a great buy @ $29.99 if you  have a 3ish or way older child in your life.  This (my much smaller set) was one of my favorites as a child.  Thanks to Christal Perrine for the heads up.

LINCOLN LOGS – 100th Anniversary Tin – 111 All-Wood Pieces – Ages 3+ Construction Education Toy

Hi!  Long time no see.  When I’m depressed, and this is a helluva week for it, I cook.  Actually this is cheat cooking.  Super easy.  I bought a rotisserie chicken at Sam’s, and they are always under cooked, and the skin is soggy, but they taste pretty good when you finish them.  I rarely eat them as plain chicken.  

This week, I cut it into 8 sections, removed the soggy skin and made chicken soup.  I know you all have a recipe, but if you want mine, let me know.  Then I remove the chicken and shredded it.  I added some to the soup, but there’s plenty left  I split in into two bowls.  

In one, I added better than a cup of shredded cheddar and Adobo seasoning, dipped corn tortillas in enchilada sauce, placed chicken mixture in the middle, and rolled and placed them in a baking dish.  This makes 6 – 8.  I sprinkled more shredded cheddar on top, covered with foil, and baked at 350° for 20 min (convection oven), and then uncovered and baked an additional 10 minutes.  Totally yummy.

From the other half, I made an original mashup. I mixed a heaping Tbs of Jerk Seasoning, (I used Walkaerswood mild, but will get hot nest time), with a little EVO, fresh thyme, and garlic powder, and added it to the rest of the chicken. Put it aside. I sauteed a sliced onion , added a diced up tomato, salted and peppered, and after about 8 minutes, added the chicken mixture. Cooked the liquid (from the tomato) down and let the chicken crisp a little bit. I was too lazy to make the rice and beans which would probably have gone well with this, threw on some cheddar,and just wrapped it up into a burrito. Very tasty.

I got 4 meals and a bunch of soup out of that one chicken.

I haven’t started my holiday cookies yet, but I found that the easiest thing in the world to make, and totally enjoy is fudge.  I made a batch and they went like wildfire.  Pieces (of a new batch) will go on my cookie trays.


3 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

1/4 cup butter

1 cup chopped walnuts, pecans, mini marshmallows, etc (optional)

Place chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and butter or   margarine in large microwaveable bowl.  Nuke 1 minute, and stir.  Then continue in 30 second intervals stirring between each till chocolate  is all melted and you can thoroughly mix, adding nuts, or whatever.

Line a brownie pan (8×8” or 9×9”) with parchment paper or aluminum foil to easily lift the fudge out (or butter).  Pour the fudge into the pan, and refrigerate for about 2 hours.  Take out and cut into squares.  If you are layering them in a container, put some of that parchment between the layers.

Gain 3 pounds.
