It's Friday again. I will go up to Independence at 7:00 to get my hair done and then go out to John and Leslie's to get meat. I am down to one pound of ground meat and I also want to find some stew meat. Soon we will be ready for stew. Then I will come back home in time for exercise class. I discovered on Wednesday that I can bend over and touch my toes gain. The exercises must be working.

We ate lunch yesterday at the new Eggberts. We had their chicken fried steak dinner. It was really good! And it's a bargain at $4.99.

Today we are having something different. It is called Mexican Chili Roll Ups. It looks pretty simple. Here's the recipe:

1 (3 oz) package cream cheese

2 T milk

1T onion

2 T green chilis

2 cups cooked chicken (chopped) 1 (8 oz) package crescent rolls

2 T melted oleo

You mix the cream cheese with the milk until smooth. Stir in the onion, chilies and chicken. Mix well. Place 1/4 cup chicken mixture on each roll. Fold the edges of the roll around the filling, rolling up from widest end. Brush tops with melted oleo or butter and bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 20 to 25 minutes Serve with salsa and salad.

I put the first coat of stain and polyurethane on my window sills yesterday. They look better but need another coat. The east sun bearing down on the windows all these years has really bleached them out. They were simply raw wood. This afternoon I will add another coat.

I went to bed at 9:00 last night and had a problem getting to sleep but once asleep I only woke up once to go to the bathroom and went right back to sleep. So I got a good night's sleep again.

Thank you for that good-sounding recipe, Margie. I think we'll give it a try this weekend.

Glad you are sleeping better! When we went on vacation we stayed in some nice places and discovered we slept very well, indeed, on those good mattresses. When we got back we bought a new mattress set and have slept better ever since...

Hi Margie...That recipe sounds like one I will try.
Glad to hear you had a good night's sleep.

This will be the first time I try it. I hope it's good!

Thanks for the encouragement.
