  1. Global Warming – Hmmmm maybe notDid you know that NASA reported today that the amount of ice in the Antartica is growing. (Varney – Fox news)

The new Antarctic sea ice record reflects the diversity and complexity of Earth’s environments, said NASA researchers. Claire Parkinson, a senior scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, has referred to changes in sea ice coverage as a microcosm of global climate change. Just as the temperatures in some regions of the planet are colder than average, even in our warming world, Antarctic sea ice has been increasing and bucking the overall trend of ice loss.

“The planet as a whole is doing what was expected in terms of warming. Sea ice as a whole is decreasing as expected, but just like with global warming, not every location with sea ice will have a downward trend in ice extent,” Parkinson said.

I just love this coleslaw. In fact I will often go to what I term Kentucky Duckie and get the coleslaw and nothing else.

I have to say it is not cheap though, that large container is about $5 – $7 depending on what country you buy it in.

Mama’s Chicken Roll Ups – Yumbo

Screen Shot 2015-07-14 at 1.35.03 PM

Mama’s Chicken Roll Ups
Oh my gosh, this is a keeper! Back on my timeline by popular request! 

2 large chicken breast
1 can crescent rolls
1 10.5 oz. can cream of chicken soup
1/2 soup can of broth (use what the chicken cooked in)
1/2 soup can milk
1 T. all purpose flour
6 oz. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
pinch of salt and pepper

NOTE: The 1/2 soup can is using the empty can of cream of chicken soup to measure.

Place the chicken in a pot and cover with water, bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium and cook till chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken (save broth). When cooled enough to handle remove the chicken from the bone and shred, set aside. Whisk together the soup, broth, milk, flour, salt and pepper. Unroll the crescent dough and separate into the triangles. Place a little cheese over the dough and at the larger end place a good heaping of the chicken. Roll up and place in a 9×13 casserole dish. Repeat with remaining. Once all are in the dish, pour the soup mix around each one and then drizzle a little over the tops (not too much). Bake in a 375 degree oven for 25 minutes, remove and top with a little more cheese and return to the oven for 5 minutes. Let sit for a couple of minutes before serving, the soup mixture will thicken up like a gravy.

2. Create a thrifty watering can by puncturing holes in the top of a used milk bottle.

3. Cover paint trays with aluminum foil to make cleaning up afterwards a breeze. Now this is a good one especially for people like me that gets paint everywhere and I hate cleaning those trays.

4. Water straight from the tap becomes cloudy when frozen. To make ice cubes crystal clear, allow a kettle of boiled water to cool slightly and use this to fill your ice-cube trays.

5. Use a large muffin tin to cook stuffed peppers in the oven – it will help keep them upright.

6. To prevent potatoes budding, add an apple in the bag. New to me and a good one.
