The 99-word story above was inspired by something delicious cooking up at Carrot Ranch!
A tasty story Titled “More or Less“
“Deciding what recipe to donate for the recipe book; while encouraged to give our very best!” “My opinion, share your mother’s muffin-tins “tatoe-bacon” recipe, and while your add it, whip a batch for the freezer for an occasional snack.” “Good idea, since the ingredients are not written in stone, more like less of this and more of that, I’ll note the measurements.” Mix 1lb of hash brown frozen shredded potatoes one grated onion one cup bacon bits two cans evaporated milk three eggs 1/2 cup of flour salt and pepper to taste pour into muffin-tins bake at 375
Whether you believe the recent selection of President in USA or the virus everyone speaks about are instilling fear. STOP IT! Fear Not!
Enjoy your family this coming Thanksgiving. Enjoy this delicious sweet recipe below; always a Holiday treat!
The only difficult action of this recipe is in the rolling of them into a roll before they cool off.
I dare you to try!
Your family, friends will love these.
Two egg whites (room temp. beat until stiff)
1/2 cup of sugar
1/3 cup SIFTED flour
1Teaspoon of almond extract
3Tablespoons of butter
1/3 cup finely chopped almonds
Sprinkle sugar over the stiffly beaten egg whites and carefully fold in the flour, melted butter, almond extract, and chopped almonds.
Drop batter by teaspoon on a WELL BUTTERED PAN; spread each into a thin circle—Bake at 375 degrees for only 5 MINUTES. Cookies are ready when slightly brown around the edges. Work quickly to roll while keeping them warm; if they cool too fast, you will not be able to shape them in a roll. Better to bake only a few at a time for that reason.
Sprinkle each with powdered sugar. yummy! JHappy Thanksgiving from my blog to your blog.
Now you are wondering, and this is the real crisis. What do I do with the two egg yokes after separating the whites from the yokes. Suggestion, add another egg to them and make scrambled eggs, or find another recipe that only requires two yokes.

I don’t mind waiting anywhere where I am allowed to sit down; at my 80 years of life, painful standing too long. An exception to that would be a restaurant sitting (too long) waiting for them to take my order when I am “starving.” Also, I might add: Waiting anywhere you don’t have to waste time; one can quietly talk to God, asking Him to end this dreaded virus or other needs for the people around you while waiting.

The most exciting item in my refrigerator is some leftover chicken from last night. Just for reading my post, I will share with you what I will do with this chicken. DELICIOUS!
Ingredients: COOKED chicken, how much depends on your family size. One time I sliced a rotisserie chicken from Cosco. Very good!
Next items: Can of condensed cream of chicken soup
cup or more of sour cream
I package of your favorite frozen vegetables
1 or 2 depending on how large your casserole will be; packages of Stove Top or other similar brands of Stuffing Mix for chicken.
First, prepare the stuffing mix according to directions.
Mix all the other ingredients, place them into your casserole dish size according to the amount. TOP WITH THE PREPARED STUFFING MIX.
Oven approx. 375 bake 30 minutes. DELICIOUS!!! Be careful not to burn the topping of stuffing.

Are you fasting or just hungry? “This bowl is too hot, this one is too cold but this one is just right!”
Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “ow.”
If you find your tummy growling think about a nice bowl of vegetable egg flour soup for one.
Heat one cup of vegetable broth with 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of sesame oil and a little soy together. Bring to a boil; while waiting to boil; mix one teaspoon of corn starch into a little cold water and stir. Add a pinch of salt and white pepper to suit your taste. Now beat one egg, and when the broth is raging mad and bubbly, slowly trickle in the beaten egg and corn starch, mixing everything together for that delicious BOWL of soup, on a SNOWY day or anytime. Use Chicken broth if you prefer. Make it your own by adding green onions, carrots, or …?…..
While at the grocery store a few days ago, I stopped to look at the turkeys, along came a stranger poking around at the turkeys along the side of me, we chatted a little and departed after wishing each other a great Holiday. As I stepped away, I heard her say, “don’t forget what the Holiday is all about.” Yes, I thought the Holiday and what is the meaning?
We hear over and over and read on greeting cards, “count your blessings,” “give thanks to God for our food,” “let’s be grateful” however, at times depending on circumstances that can’t always be easy.
Some of us might be suffering this year.
What we can do is pray for each other, although strangers. Just as that woman in the grocery store was a stranger, yet she sent me a message, a reminder of what Thanksgiving is all about!
My prayer is that we all can, in our gentle way remind others to stop, take notice to realize what we have. Some of us might have less, some have more but those who have the Faith, the Holy, Traditional Catholic Faith have it ALL.
Getting back to that delicious turkey and if you are tired of mashed potatoes here is a delightful alternative. A recipe from Lithuania that my family always enjoys during the holiday season. Although this recipe is time-consuming; if you wash, peel and shred the potatoes. There is a shortcut! Purchase one 2 lb. Bags of Hash Brown shredded potatoes that eliminates washing, peeling and shredding the potatoes.
5 Lbs of potatoes or Hash Brown shredded potatoes (easier)
4 or 5 lightly beaten eggs
1 or 2 onion finely chopped
1 Lb. bacon cut in small pieces or more bacon if you like
2 or 3 cans evaporated milk
1/4 cup flour
salt and pepper to taste
In a large bowl, mix grated potatoes, eggs, flour, and evaporated milk. Add browned bacon and onions along with some of the melted bacon grease. Season to taste. Pour mixture into a greased baking dish, put into a hot oven 400 degrees and cook for about 1 hr. to 1.5 hours; test like a cake till center is done. (if Hash browns are used you might want to add a cup or two of chicken broth to your mix) I like to open the oven after it has been cooking for about half an hour and stir it up, but that is not necessary.)
When cool you can top with sour cream if desired. Makes a tasty breakfast dish too!
