Saturday 9 for March 28th

Today the weather is warm around 70 degrees but it does have a bit of rain in the air. We have been working hard in the yard getting rid of metal to those that can recyle it as well as getting rid of items that will no longer sale etc... Second day at may new job at 2 pm I also found time to participate in this little meme: You can join in as well simply click thru the banner below

1) Next Wednesday is April Fool's Day. Do you have any pranks planned? Do you expect to fall victim to any April Fool's Day mischief?

I most likely will both do a few pranks while unplanned as well as fall victim as I normally do

2) When she was a kid, Crazy Sam would fool her mom by putting bubble wrap under the bath map so there would be a POP! when her mother stepped on it. When you encounter bubble wrap, do you always indulge in a pop or two?

always love bubble wrap can spend hours popping those little bubbles almost a calming effect

3) While we're using this song to celebrate April Fool's Day, it was written about another subject entirely: heartbreak. The lyrics tell us that at some point, we each get our hearts broken by someone who doesn't love us as much as we love them. Do you think that's true?

yes in many cases but it can go both ways as there are some that may love us more than we love them

4) In 1962, this week's featured Connie Francis published a book aimed at teens called For Every Young Heart. It addressed topics like going steady and schoolwork vs. social life. Do you ever read advice columns or self-help books?

often like to hear others opinions while I may not follow them to a T I do believe they help me form my own opinion on things

5) Connie Francis can play the accordion. Sam has never met anyone adept at this complicated instrument -- not even in her high school band. What about you? Do you play the accordion, or do you know anyone who can?

I can play just a bit learned as a girl but not talented

6) In 1960, when this record was popular, Harper Lee's classic To Kill a Mockingbird was published. Have you read it?

Yes I have truly do like it

7) Also in 1960, one of Life magazine's best-selling issues had Sophia Loren on the cover. At that time, she was an international film star and considered one of the world's most beautiful women. Who do you consider one of 2020's most beautiful women?

the wrestler Micki James

8) A 1960 issue of Vogue acknowledged how expensive it had become to maintain a fashionable wardrobe and asked, "If you were to buy only one thing, what would it be?" If it's good enough for Vogue, it's good enough for Saturday 9: If you could purchase only one new article of clothing for spring 2020, what would you buy?

I would buy a pair of leggings that would go nicely under a beautiful short dress

9) Random question: When someone makes you really angry, are you more likely to respond with stony silence or a big noise?

Depends on how mad they make me defiantly a stony look but maybe some squawking as well

Salsa Chicken Nachos

2 lbs Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
2 cups Salsa, plus more for topping (your favorite)
Tortilla Chips
Shredded Mexican Blend Cheese
1 (15 oz.) can Corn, drained
1 (15 oz.) can Black Beans, rinsed and drained
Chopped Jalapenos (fresh or pickled)
Fresh Tomatoes, diced
Sour Cream
Fresh Cilantro
Chili Powder

Start off by making the Salsa Chicken: Place the chicken breasts (fresh or frozen) and 2 cups of salsa into a crock pot set to low. Allow it to cook for about 6 hours. (If you're in a hurry, you can cook it on high for 3 hours.) Shred the chicken and return it to the pot. Stir everything together and keep the crock pot on low until you are ready to assemble your nachos. (If it looks a little runny, keep the lid off during this last bit of cooking.)

Preheat a toaster oven to 450 degrees. Heat the corn and black beans in separate bowls in the microwave for 60 seconds each.

Assemble the Nachos: On an oven safe plate, arrange a bed of tortilla chips. Top with a layer of shredded cheese. Then add a little bit of the salsa chicken, black beans, corn, and chopped jalapenos. Sprinkle a little more cheese on top, and place it in the toaster oven for 5 - 10 minutes, or until the cheese is nicely melted.

Remove the nachos from the oven and top with a few diced tomatoes, some sour cream, salsa, and cilantro. Then sprinkle on a little bit of cumin and chili powder.

Makes 4 - 6 plates of nachos.
