A goodnight message

I just wanted to add a quick goodnight and a great recipe that you should try sometime. This recipe was passed on to me by my mother who got it from a recipe that she got back in the sixties or seventies, but it is a great recipe. The kids absolutely love it! And husbands love the smell of it at the end of a long hard day.

Pineapple Chicken

1 whole chicken (cut up)
1 or 2 cans of canned peas
1 or 2 cans of sliced pineapple
3 to 4 medium yellow onions
Butter or Margarine
Vegetable Oil

Pre-heat oven to 425˚f and heat two to three Tbsp. butter or margerine in a skillet on medium.
Brown pineapple slices on both sides in skillet and set aside pineapple juice from the can for later. Remove pineapple slices from skillet and set aside.
Sautee sliced onions in the same skillet until caramelized adding butter or margarine to pan as needed. Remove and set aside.
Combine flour, salt, pepper & paprika (spices to taste) and roll chicken pieces in flour until well coated. Adding vegetable oil to the skillet, fry chicken in skillet on both sides until golden brown and cooked through.
Place fried chicken in small roasting pan or large round casserole dish.
Cover fried chicken in pineapple slices, sautéed onions and canned peas.
Pour reserved pineapple juice over the top of all.
Cook dish at 425 for 30-45 min. until flavors are well blended and peas are slightly browned.

*Makes about 4-6 servings.

**Suggestion - for 4 or less you may use one can only of peas and pineapple and 3 onions but for 5 or more it is better to use 2 cans and 4 onions so there is plenty to go around. You can double it by using two chickens and still only use two cans and 4 onions if you plan to have company. The onions and pineapple tend to go quick, and you rarely have many leftovers.

***One last note to all. I just wanted to ask everyone to respect the rules and no talk of classified information or priveledged information. It's just common sense. Don't say anything that you think could get you or anyone else in trouble. Don't post pictures that you do not know for sure are okay to post. Don't post rumors or news of someone's death or injury that has not been released to the press (the internet is the same as the press). Or anything that could potentially jepordize the safety of anyone you know! I just don't want anyone to get in trouble. Be mindful of the rules and enjoy blogging! And stay connected! Goodnight.***

Something I made

I am not going to say much today, since i just spent most of my day making this blog. But I wanted to post something that I made. I really like it and I think that everyone else will like it too.

I will be posting more soon so keep an eye out. Also, I am reading the books on the books list on the page. I will be posting book reviews as I finish them. What I like about the book I am reading now (The five love languages) is that it talks about how to make long term relationships and marriages last beyond that stars in the eyes phase and it tells you what that phase really is. It's kinda stuff that we already learned over time and a lot of struggles. But It's got a new insight on things that we had no words to explain before. So I really like that book. It's easy to read too. Not too long. Each Chapter is only a few pages long so you can easily read a chapter per night before bed and it's not hard to find somewhere to stop at. I hope everyone has a great week. See ya tomorrow.
