Quote of the Week

      “If you look at the world, you’ll be distressed. If you look within, you’ll be depressed. If you look at God you’ll be at rest.”

“Memories are the key not to the past, but to the future.”

The Recipe Box

Chicken-Cheese Crêpes

 These are good with yummy oatmeal rolls! 


Chicken-Cheese Crêpes

6 tablespoons of butter

1/3 C. flour

a dash or two of salt

2 C. milk

1 C. chicken broth

1/2 C. shredded Swiss cheese (I also used cheddar cheese….mainly because I didn’t have enough Swiss 🙂 

2 T. snipped parsley

Several dashes bottled hot pepper sauce

2-1/2 oz. jar sliced mushrooms, drained and chopped

10 oz. frozen peas

2 C. cooked and chopped chicken

1/2 C. chopped red bell pepper

12 basic crêpes (recipe below)

Paprika (optional)


For cheese sauce, in a medium saucepan melt butter. Stir in flour and salt. Add milk and broth. Cook over medium heat until thick and bubbly. Stir in cheese, parsley, and hot sauce. Cook until cheese is melted and then take out 1-1/2 C. for later. Stir in drained mushrooms.

For filling, cook peas and drain. Combine peas, chicken, and red bell pepper and the reserved cheese sauce.

Spread 1/4 C. filling over the unbrowned side of each crêpe and roll them up placing them in a greased 12″ X 7″ baking pan. Pour the sauce over the crêpes and sprinkle with paprika. Bake at 370º F. for 18-20 minutes. Makes 6 servings.

I double the chicken-cheese crêpe recipe and do one and a half recipes of the crêpes.


Basic Crêpes

In a bowl combine 1 cup of flour, 1-1/2 cups of milk, 2 eggs, 1 tablespoon of cooking oil, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt and beat really well.

Spoon about 3 tablespoons of batter into a heated and greases skillet and cook until light brown. Cook only one side. Grease skillet occasionally. (The unfilled crêpes freeze well [up to four months] by placing a piece of wax paper between each one. )

Cute Quotes

  The other day Charissa was looking at a road map that was only of one city. She was trying to find our town (which was not on there) and said, “I can’t find where we live!”  Noah replied, “That’s because it’s not our world—we live in a different one!”

    I read For One Moment by Christmas Carol Kauffman once, and loved it! I didn't know that she had written many other books. I'll have to check them out!

    Have a very bright, very cheerful day,

    Your "Are You Ready?" clip scared me! Or maybe I should say SURPRISED me:) It was quite unexpected! And my answer? YES! But it was a great reminder to live like He is coming soon. Thanks! I always need to be reminded of that!

    The Josh Harris clips were both funny and thought provoking:) The cute quote was… well, cute! I liked the picture and the whole rest of the post, but I will spare you my comments on each thing (Just a bit tedious!) 😀 Must go! Love and Hugs!

    The opossum poster is tooooooo funny! In fact it's down-right hilarious! Did you girls see it somewhere? or just hear about it?

    That possum sign is too funny! 😀 Why city folks shouldn't move to the country indeed. 😉 Can you imagine finding a possum and keeping it, thinking it was someone's cat? I wonder at what point those people figured out what it was…
