"Take it or Leave it" Tuesday

In response to last weeks Leave it-Junk Mail, I stumbled upon this site: 41 pounds. Did you know that the average adult receives 41 pounds of junk mail each year. At this site you can sign up to NOT be that person. Their service stops 80-95% of unwanted catalogs and junk mail for you. They’ll contact dozens of companies on your behalf to stop your junk mail AND protect the environment! :)

Also, ask and you shall receive! My new favorite Crispy Onion Chicken Recipe:
1 tbs Worchestershire sauce
1 tsp ground mustard
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted.
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 can (6oz) cheddar or original french-friend onions, crushed (i prefer original)
In a shallow bowl, combine the butter, Worchestershire sauce, mustard, garlic salt, and pepper. Dip chicken in butter mixture, then coat with onions. Place in a greased 9 in. square baking pan. Top with any remaining onions; drizzle with any remaining butter mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Yield: 4 servings.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Now, for this weeks installment...

This week's LEAVE ITs are:
**Chocolate: Although I'm not a chocolate lover, every now I do want something that's chocolate. But in return it always makes my face break out. Boo. Hiss.
**Improper Bagging of Groceries: I guess I was ruined having grown up in a grocery store. Anyone remember Larry's Food & Tackle that use to be on (what is now the old) highway 64 in Columbia. Ahh. I LOVED those days at my Grandparents store! I could run the register at age 5. :) Anyway, I knew cold items went together, meats bagged seperately from other foods, little stuff like that. Do they not teach people those things anymore? I really dont care to have hamburger juices leaking all over my salad dressing bottles.



**Snow!: Here in central/eastern NC, we hardly ever get snow, and if we do it usually doesn't amount to much. However this weekend, I'd say we got a good 5 inches, if not more. Not only was (is) the snow beautiful but it was also my daughter's first snow so that made it even more special!
**Babies: And not just mine! :) I've been going through images of a recent newborn *twin* session that I had a couple of weeks ago and I can't wait to share the images with you, hopefully tomorrow!
**Lowes Foods To Go: Huge. Fan. Sit at your computer with your list. Order online. Someone at the store does the shopping for you. Pull through the pick up lane. Push button, say your name. They bring groceries to you and load in your car. That simple! Some will even deliver to your house! Now that's awesome. I have found that when I shop this way I dont buy those unnecessary things that stare at you when you walk through the aisles (i.e. chocolate!) Due to our house location delivery isn't an option and even though I don't mind grocery shopping it is nice when you have an 8 month old or lots of other errands to get done in one day! Side-note: my groceries were bagged just like I like too! ;)


  1. Thank you for posting the chicken recipe, will be trying it out soon. Sure wish we had a Lowe's foods, would love to take advantage of that service. Must have been a mom that invented that one!

  2. Larry's Food and Tackle. Wow. The only place in town that would weigh you on the way in so you could eat all the bananas in the cart and weigh you on the way out.
