[make: A Gift for You, A Gift for Me]

Ok. So, it's not REALLY a gift from me *grin* - BUT, for those of you who didn't hear, Oprah is giving away a BUNCH of free Christmas music on her site for the next 48 hours! I love Christmas music, but it's always so expensive ... here's a way for you to get "Christmas 2008" for your home. LOVE that.

Also - I've had a few emails about some of the recipes for the meal plan I did. I had to smile - people I didn't even know were reading, are. *grin*. Makes me have to be on my best behaviour, eh *BIG GRIN*.

SO - here are the 2 that were requested ...

350F for 1 hour

This is my mom's recipe, a favourite of mine growing up. It was a "for company" recipe but I use it all the time. SO good.

4 chicken breasts
2 cans mushroom soup

1/2 pt sour cream
1 pkg onion soup mix
1/2 tbsp dill weed


Brown chicken in oil (I actually don't do this ... too many calories *GRIN*)
Combine all ingredients (um, not the chicken)
Pour over chicken in 9x9 pan and bake COVERED for 1 hour.

350F for 30 minutes

This recipe is my own adaptation of one of Sophie Gray's - her cookbooks are amazing.

4 strips of bacon, cut with scissors into 1/4" pieces
1/2 large onion, chopped
1/2 large red pepper, chopped

3 eggs
1cup milk
1/2 tbsp seasoning (whatever you like, I use Mrs. Dash)
1/2 cup self raising flour (OR 1/2 cup flour + 3/4 tsp baking powder)
1 cup grated cheese


Cook bacon & onions until browned. Add peppers, cook until soft. Set aside.
In another bowl mix eggs and milk.
In another bowl mix seasoning with flour (or flour mixture with baking soda..)
Pour egg mixture into flour mixture.
Add bacon saute to flour mixture.
Add cheese to flour mixture.
Pour into a WELL GREASED 9x9 glass baking dish.
Cook uncovered for 30 minutes.
Let sit for 5 minutes before serving.

And what was MY gift? Well ... check out these videos. I am so proud of this little guy - as only a few weeks ago he was an absolute sobbing mess, afraid to get his head wet. His teacher is amazing. She deserves a medal ...
