Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce

      I tried a delicious new recipe last night which I found in the August/September issue of Allrecipes magazine.  I'm posting is so you can try it, too.  It was also very quick and easy.  I served it over spaghetti.

Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce

4 (6 oz) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, patted dry (I     

      used 8 chicken tenders, which I always have on hand)

1 tsp. lemon pepper

1 tsp salt

1 tsp dried dill weed

1 tsp garlic powder

3 Tbsp. butter

1/2 c. whipping cream

2 Tbsp capers, drained & rinsed


1. Sprinkle chicken with lemon pepper, salt, dill, and garlic powder.  Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Cook chicken, turning frequently, until golden on both sides, about 5 minutes. (Reduce heat a bit if butter starts to brown.).   Continue cooking, turning chicken once, 5-7 minutes (if using tenders this doesn't take as long) or until and instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest parts registers 165 degrees.  Transfer chicken to serving platter and cover with foil.

2. Increase heat to high.  Add whipping cream to skillet; simmer, whisking constantly, until reduced to sauce consistence, about 3 minutes.  Remove from heat, stir in capers, and pour over chicken. (I return the chicken to the skillet with the sauce because that coats the chicken better.)  Garnish with cherry tomatoes, if desired.


Note:  I will double the whipping cream and capers next time since there wasn't a lot of sauce leftover after coating the chicken to pour over the spaghetti when serving.

ReMoved



Have you seen this? I was editing my bookmarks today and found it there so I watched it again.  The commentary by this little girl is so touching and helps us to understand the feelings of little children who have been abused.

Thomas Sowell Quote on Activism

 Thomas Sowell is a very articulate, wise man.  This quote is an excellent example of his wisdom:

"Activism is a way for useless people to feel important, even if the consequences of their activism are counterproductive for those they claim to be helping and damaging to the fabric of society as a whole." —Thomas Sowell

In response to Billy Graham's nonsensical granddaughter by Michael Schisler

Below is a quote from an excellent article on World Net Daily by Michael Schisler, entitled

In Response to Billy Graham's Nonsensical Granddaughter.

I highly recommend you click the link to read the entire article.  The arguments Mr. Schisler puts forth apply to every Christian/person who has proclaimed they will not vote for President Trump because of character flaws.

"Elections are binary choices, and Christians need to understand that Jesus is not on the ballot. Christians have no right to demand that one half of one ticket rises to some bogus spiritual purity test while giving the other ticket a complete pass.
Things like promoting the industrialized slaughter of the pre-born, support for endless wars, financial corruption, facilitating the destabilization of our cities and all the rest of the flaws the Biden/Harris ticket exhibits can't be ignored just because one despises Trump's public persona and thinks Pence doesn't matter. Because all of these things are the 100% assured alternatives to the obnoxious tweets, the bad photo-op and the crassness..."

We must vote!!

"In the last election, 52 million evangelical Christians stayed home. Heaven must weep over facts such as this. If we all showed up and voted our biblical values, we could turn America around overnight. Pray that God awakens the sleeping giant, the Church!" Dutch Sheets

The Republican National Convention

Did you watch the Republican Convention these past 4 days?  I have never enjoyed a political rally so much in my life!  What inspiring stories!  What brave people!  And what an inspirational and patriotic speech by our President.

There are so many good quotes from his speech, such as: "At the Democrat National Convention, Joe Biden and his party repeatedly assailed America as a land of racial, economic, and social injustice, so tonight, I ask you a simple question: How can the Democratic Party ask to lead our country when it spent so much time tearing down our country?"

And this one: "At the Democrat convention, you barely heard a word about their agenda. But that is not because they don't have one. It is because their agenda is the most extreme set of proposals ever put forward by a major party nominee."

Or this:  As long as I am president, we will defend the absolute right of every American citizen to live in security, dignity, and peace. If the Democrat Party wants to stand with anarchists, agitators, rioters, looters, and flag burners, that is up to them. But I as your president will not be part of it. The Republican Party will remain the voice of the patriotic heroes who keep America safe and salute the American flag.

Another:  We must reclaim our independence from the Left's repressive mandates. Americans are exhausted, trying to keep up with the latest lists of approved words and phrases, and the ever more restrictive political decrees.

Many things have a different name now, and the rules are constantly changing. The goal of cancel culture is to make Americans live in fear of being fired, expelled, shamed, humiliated, and driven from society as we know it. The far Left wants to coerce you into saying what you know to be false and scare you out of saying what you know to be true. Very sad. But on November 3, you can send them a very thundering message they will never forget. ...
Country Guy & I were saying things may "ratchet up" in the next few weeks because President Trump makes so much sense it is difficult for the Democrats to compete.  The only way they know to combat him is to create chaos and blame it on him.  Unfortunately for them, I believe people are waking up to what is at stake in this election and their plans are backfiring.  I certainly pray that is the case.

Please vote and encourage everyone you know to vote, also. Woe to those who let personal feelings about someone's personality keep them from voting--or cause them to vote for those who are encouraging destruction of our country.

Sex Container :: Relationship Goals (Part 6)



Are you familiar with Michael Todd's ministry?  We've been watching his relationship goal series.  This one on sex is excellent (actually they all have been)!  I believe it would be helpful for everyone of any age to watch this but it is particularly applicable for young people because of the loose morals in today's cultural.  So refreshing to find a pastor addressing difficult subjects!

"2020: The strangest and most crucial year of our lives" by David Kupelian

A good read and a clear exposition of what is happening in our country from World Net Daily:

"2020: The strangest and most crucial year of our lives" by David Kupelian

The author's conclusion:   "Surely there’s never been a more crucial time for those “governed by God” in their hearts to get down on their knees and pray for the strength, wisdom and courage to do everything they possibly can to stop the deranged Marxist takeover and transformation of their beloved country. It’s time to throw off all the fear, intimidation, guilt trips and lies that have given the left so much power in America. It’s time for moral, clear-headed Americans to stand up and boldly speak the truth as never before, with love and without fear, to their fellow citizens – and especially to their leaders. And it’s time to pray that God will, once again, have mercy on our nation and save us from the unthinkable horror that is now preparing to remake America in its unholy image."

I totally agree.  We must stand for righteousness.  It is time to speak up. We must do all that is within our power to resist this evil.  And we must vote!

Reading 67 Psalms in 67 Days

Have you been reading a Psalm/day with Johnny Enlow which was suggested in his 67 Days of God's Face Shining Upon Us article?  He has a daily commentary of each Psalm on his facebook page.  If you haven't been reading these, I highly recommend it.  I find each one of them to be excellent but I must say, so far, Day 23 was a highlight.  Today's is also a favorite.  We are on Day 30.  Johnny's commentary on the Psalms is enlightening and revelatory.  It is amazing how pertinent each Psalm is to current news.

This excerpt from today's reading was eye-opening and mind-expanding for me.  I had never thought of praise and worship in this way.  It gives new meaning to the phrase "a sacrifice of praise."

"As badly as David loved His Presence, he consistently wanted to experience it “in the land of the living.” I think he innately knew that there is no worship of God in heaven that can compare with worship on earth. As shocking as that sounds, even the most skilled, elaborate and passionate worship in heaven registers differently to the heart of the Father. There, all can see and experience Him face to face and in His full glory. All questions of what was God doing and why is God delaying have been answered. Praise and worship of Him can’t be helped in that atmosphere. It is so obvious there— that He is Good, and Kind, and Glorious, and Majestic, and Wonderful, and Loving, and Beautiful. Here we sing from a war zone. Here all those descriptions of Him are constantly assailed and easily doubted. The worship of God that comes from earth is always going to have more potential than that which comes from heaven. When one here can be fighting sickness, inwardly grieving a loss of a relative, tormented by a child who has gone astray, facing demonic injustice in government— and STILL says from the heart YOU ARE GOOD! Now that’s rare worship and it outdoes what 10,000 angels around the throneroom can do."

Manipulation and Fear to Control Us Using Covid 19

I hope you are one of those who is looking for truth instead of what the mainstream media is reporting.
I continue to post articles on the science of COVID 19 because I believe we need to help each other with facts so we will not act out of fear.  Here are two I read this morning that let you know we are being manipulated by fear.

Why the Smear Campaign Against Hydroxychloroquine?

Fauci Recommends Goggles for Protection From COVID-19
Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola

A quote from Dr. Mercola's article:

"A paper in the April 2020 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine pointed out:12
“We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to COVID-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). 
The chance of catching COVID-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic …"
Did you know there are now guidelines for having sex to prevent Covid? Also from the above article:

"According to the New York City health department’s “Safer Sex and COVID-19” fact sheet,15“Decisions about sex and sexuality need to be balanced with personal and public health,” although they do note that “sex is not likely a common way that COVID-19 spreads.” 
To “enjoy safer sex and reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19,” the health department suggests avoiding orgies, restricting sexual activity to masturbation whenever possible, and washing your hands (and any toys) for at least 20 seconds before and afterward. 
If hooking up with someone outside your household, discuss COVID-19 risk factors such as symptoms within the last two weeks and any positive COVID-19 test results. They also recommend having alcohol-based sanitizer on hand, and having sex in “larger, more open, and well-ventilated spaces.” 
Other suggestions include getting “creative with sexual positions and physical barriers, like walls, that allow sexual contact while preventing close face to face contact.” In plain English, consider having sex through a hole in the wall (“glory hole”) or other physical barrier to avoid close physical contact. 
British Columbia’s Centre for Disease Control has issued near-identical guidelines,16 as has the Irish Health Services and the Irish Pharmacy Union"
I find this very obtrusive and offensive!  Our lives are being controlled by a smear campaign of fear.  It's time to say "ENOUGH!"
