I got this delicious recipe from my sister-in-law.
Even the leftovers (if there are any:) are great!

Japanese Chicken Salad

2 Tbsp. sesame seeds, toasted
1/2 c. slivered almonds, toasted
2 c. cubed cooked chicken
1 small head cabbage, shredded
1 package Icheban or Ramen noodles, crumbled
5 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/4 c. chopped green onions

Combine all of the above ingredients in a large bowl.

For the Dressing:

1/2 c. oil
3 Tbsp. white vinegar
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/2. tsp. pepper
2 Tbsp. chicken bouillon

Combine the oil and vinegar. Add the sugar, salt, pepper and chicken bouillon; stir until completely mixed. Pour oil mixture over salad; toss to coat. Enjoy!:)

Beautiful Roses....

My wonderful husband gave me these a few days ago:). Brings back memories of other times when he has surprised me. When I (along with my sister) visited his family in Canada he was waiting for me at the airport with roses. Another time when we were courting, a surprise package arrived in the mail; upon opening it I discovered twelve gorgeous red roses:).....and that is just to name two of the times:).

I love you Graham! :) I am privileged to be your wife.

Sombody Said...


"I can do all things through Christ which strengheneth me."
~Philippians 4:13

Old corrals, Alberta Canada

Somebody said that it couldn't be done,
But he with a chuckle replied
That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one
Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn't be done, and he did it.


Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that;
At least no one ever has done it";
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat,
And the first thing we knew he'd begun it.
With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
Without any doubting or quiddit,
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn't be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
There are thousands to prophesy failure;
There are thousands to point out to you one by one,
The dangers that wait to assail you.
But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,
Just take off your coat and go to it;
Just start to sing as you tackle the thing
That "cannot be done," and you'll do it..
