WEDNESDAY WHAT HAVE YOU'S & A MEME
Girly Comments & Graphics
Good Wednesday Mornin' Yall,
I do hope that everyone had a great Tuesday and ready to start a new day. It is currently 22 degrees with a windchill of 16 degrees. The winds are currently out of the Northwest at 5 mph. Yesterday was a cloudy and dreary and cold day. They say another reinforcement of cold air is going to be here again tonight. I think the high tomorrow is only going to be around 29 degrees. They even say we might get some freezing rain again on Friday. Now, go figure. What makes the weathermen/women think that if we was suppose to get some late Monday night that we would get some Friday? LOL. Oh well, this is Arkansas Weather for ya. You never know what to expect from one day to the other.
I was challenged last week by my friend Mary@http://maryswritingnook.blogspot.com/ to do a Meme. The Meme was created by Jan@ http://janparrish.blogspot.com/2008/01/great-to-be-me-meme.html. I am to list 15 things why it's great to be me. So, here goes.
1. I am the Wife to a wonderful Husband.
2. I am a Mother to 2 beautiful Daughters.
3. I am PROUD to be an AMERICAN.
4. I am a Stay at Home Mom.

My friend Tammy@http://www.blogger.com/profile/11144586438793982303 emailed me yesterday to let me know that she had been informed that today is National Pie Day. How cool is that. Okay now, as most of yall know, I'm not a baker. LOL. I am a regular cook. I fix meals and eat them. LOL. But I have never baked anything that I can remember. Tammy did say that Meat Pies are included. Whewwww, I'm glad of that now. LOL. So, I think I'll share my version of Chicken Pot Pie. I have only fixed it a few times, so I can't give any measurements or things like that. So, here goes.
KAREN'S CHICKEN POT PIE
1 large can of Veg-All
2 cans Cream of Chicken Soup
1/2 small chopped Red Onion
1/2 small Green Bell Pepper
Salt & Pepper to Taste
Garlic Powder to Taste
Onion Powder to Taste
2 Medium boiled cooked Skinless-Boneless Chicken Breast's chopped up into small pieces.
Mix all ingredient together in a Round Casserole Dish. Now, using the recipe on a box of Bisquick for their Chicken Pot Pie, fix the top like they would. I don't have a box of Bisquick in my Cabinets, so I can't tell you every detail in fixing the top. You will just have to go buy a box and fix it for yourself. LOL. Just a little cooking humor here. Bake in oven on 350 degrees for about an hour. It may take a little more time or a little less time. Just make sure the crust is good and done. If you would like to, take out of oven and sprinkle some Shredded Cheese on top. So, there you have it, my version of Chicken Pot Pie. If you do try this recipe, be sure to let me know how it turned out. You may not want to use everything I use, but that's up to you. Everyone has their own taste.
Well now, let's see what I'm going to post about now. Hmmmm, oh yeah. I went to our local Bank yesterday afternoon with all my papers and the Deposit Slip from on the 14th of December. I had to wait on a Customer Representative because there was only 2 of them there at this time. I didn't have to wait very long. Also, I was nice as well. When it was my turn to go up to the counter, I told the lady that I wanted to check into something on our Checking Account. She pulled it up. I asked her about the Deposit on the 14th and she told me it was in there on our account. I told her that it wasn't on my online account. She said she didn't know anything about that. I then asked her if she could tell me how many checks that the Bank had returned on us. She verbally gave me one of the check numbers and then she printed out the other check numbers. Well, I guess I had lost my mind for a minute and I asked her about the December check that was returned. She told me hatefully, I already gave you that check number. Okay, this totally shocked me. I was like, what the heck? I just said okay and gathered up my things and left. I had tears in my eyes for being treated like that. She was a total B****. I'm sorry yall, but that is how I felt about her when she talked to me that way. She also acted like she didn't want to help me at all. So, I just came home. I made a call to the Main Branch in Jonesboro, AR, and the lady I needed to talk to was out for lunch. They did take my name and number and said they would have her call me when she got back in the office. She did call me back. I first was asking about the online banking and about the Deposit on the 14th not being on there. She was really nice. She said that since we hadn't used the online Banking in a while, that the Deposit wouldn't show up there. I said okay. I then began to tell her how I was treated at our Bank. Our Bank here in town is one of several branches of the Main Bank in Jonesboro. I was so upset and nearly crying by this time. She said she couldn't believe that from the Bank here in Caraway. I said, oh yes, it happened. She wanted to know if I knew her name. I told her I did and gave her the name of the Representative that said that to me. I told this lady that someone needs to reprimend her or give her a talking to about her hateful attitude. The lady at the Main Branch in Jonesboro kept apologizing to me about this. She said she was an Assistant Vice-President of something or another at the Main Branch and that she would take care of it for me. I told the lady that that made me not to want to go to the Bank again. She apologized again. So, anyway, we are back to square one. We still don't know what happened to the money. The lady at the Main Branch did tell me that we had been overdrawn starting in October of last year. She wanted to know if we had been getting those overdraft things they send you in the mail. I said no we haven't. I told her that if we had, I would have been doing something about it had I known about it. Now whether the Bank mailed them out to us, is beyond me. But we didn't get any. I looked back on my stub in October and I still had a plus balance. I have a calculator that I carry in my pocketbook with me at all times. When I write a check, I use my calculator. I do it 2 times just to double check and make sure I come up with the same answer. The Bank did return 4 checks on us. I had already been notified of one last week and then the one on Saturday at the Grocery Store. So, we have 4 checks to go get and take care of plus the fees they charge. I want to ask you all to continue to pray for us in trying get all of this taken care of. I so do appreciate your prayers.
For mine and the girls supper last night I fixed a big pot of Homemade Soup. I was going to fix my cornbread to go with it, but I just didn't feel like it. We did have crackers to go with it tho. There is plenty left and we can eat on it a couple of more days. It's suppose to be turning colder again, so some hot Soup will really taste good on a cold night.
Well, guess I'll go for now and see who is up and who is not up. If you hear someone knocking on your door, please let me in and have coffee with me. LOL. Take care my friends and have a great day. May God Bless Each and Everyone of You.
LOVE & HUGS,
