Well I got my pots done yesterday and they look great... Now I am going to get some plants this weekend and they will look even better..I have decided to downsize the amount of pots that I have on my decks.. Hoping my kids might like some of them and they would even be planted ... Now that is what I call a Giveaway...


1 cup Corn Flake Crumbs
1 1/2 teaspoons grated orange peel
1 egg white, slightly beaten
1 tablespoon water
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 1 1/2 lb. total)
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon vegetable oil, divided
3/4 cup orange juice
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/4 cup sliced green onions
2 cups hot cooked brown rice
1 medium orange, halved and thinly sliced

On wax paper combine  Corn Flake Crumbs and orange peel. Set aside. In shallow dish combine egg white and water. Set aside.
Place each chicken piece between two pieces of plastic wrap. Use flat side of meat mallet to lightly pound until 3/8-inch thick. You can use your rolling pin if you do not have a mallet.  Dip chicken pieces in flour. Shake off excess. Dip in egg white mixture and press in crumb mixture, coating both sides.
In very large skillet (12 inch) cook chicken pieces in 2 teaspoons of the oil over medium heat for 3 minutes or until golden brown. Turn. Add remaining 1 teaspoon oil to skillet. Cook about 2 minutes more or until done. Remove from skillet. Loosely cover with foil to keep warm.

Use paper towel to carefully wipe crumbs from skillet. Add orange juice, wine and mustard to skillet. Bring to boiling. Boil, uncovered about 4 minutes or until reduced to 3/4 cup. Meanwhile, stir together butter and cornstarch. Add to orange juice mixture, stirring until smooth. Cook over medium heat until mixture boils, stirring constantly. Continue cooking and stirring 1 minute longer. Remove from heat. Stir in onions.

Serve chicken over brown rice. Top with orange slices. Spoon orange sauce over all.

Gas prices are going up....everyone go out and get a Co-op Card. Just think about how much gas you spend a year .. you will get a rebate each year...Make sure you said someone told you to sign up and they will get a $10.00 credit added to their rebate...

This weekend we are going to go and watch our |Grandson go skating.. Deklan is 3 1/2 and has loved skating now for quite sometime.. His idea of skating and playing hockey is in  his family room with all his hockey gear and his skates which are his socks.. So this is quite different being on ice with real skates..


  1. I will take some pots off your hands MOM!

  2. Okay ,, Kimberly wants a few and you can have a few as well.. Once I get them all cleaned out I will bring them down and you can pick what you would like..
