French's crunchy onion chicken:

I just have to say that I love days like today when the weather starts to cool off. I think that it is the perfect time to just snuggle with the ones you love, Make Soup, and just spend time together. The original plan for dinner tonight was not soup but my new niece Miss J.A.B. decided to make her entrance into the world so most of the day was spent watching Grandpa Helen and visiting at the hospital. This recipe originally came for my aunt Perfect P and I love, love, love it. Did I forget to mention that I Heart soup.

What you will need:
4 Quarts water (16 Cups)
12 Chicken Bouillon cubes
3 Cubes Margarine
1 1/2 Cups flour
16 oz jar of cheese whiz
3 packages of frozen broccoli

Bring water and chicken Bouillon to a boil. Add Broccoli cook until tender. In a separate pan melt margarine and mix in flour until smooth. Add to boiling water stir until thick & smooth. Add cheese whiz stir until melted and smooth.

**This makes a huge batch so I usually just half the recipe and we still have some left over.**

Snicker Salad

A couple of days ago we celebrated Ms. O's first birthday. We threw a big party complete with dinner, cake, ice cream, and presents. For dinner we had lots of different salads to go along with the pulled pork sandwiches made by my aunt and uncle. Snicker salad has always been a big hit with my dads family so I quickly threw it together before the party. Hope you and your family enjoy as much a we do.

What you need to Purchase:
6 Apples (These can be any kind. I usually choose types that are really crisp.)
6 snickers (Regular size. The more snickers the better)
Small container of Cool whip

How to make:
Cut both the apples and snickers into bite size pieces. Next combined cut up Apples and Snickers with the cool whip. Stir together and enjoy.

***Note about this salad***
This salad should be made only about an hour to and hour and a half before your event. Also it doesn't keep to well in the fridge overnight because the apples brown and the snickers tend to melt.
