Things You Can Do With Junk...

This is for a client who had an old lunch box that belonged to her father and some molds that she was given by a friend who is a baker. I added the rest and built the bot.



Principal Parts: Lunch box, jello molds, industrial hook, vintage (circa 1946) Brownie camera, industrial spring, test link, strainer parts, and various nuts and bolts.

Topper loves to dig in the trash and chew on the legs of Barbies. If he weren’t so affectionate and determined to be a human bed warmer, he would forever be in trouble. His dream is to finally catch a moth.

For the Locals: In Case You Have Any Electrasol Coupons Left

I happened by Target this afternoon which is not a store I shop at often since local deals are rarely the same as on the blogs. They have the 20 ct Electrasol Finish Dishwashing tabs on sale for $2.50. If you have any more $2.25 coupons left, now is a good time to use them as they expire on the 21st. I bought 10 boxes for .25 each.

This was the Target in Franklin on Columbia Pike at the end of Mac Hatcher. The sign said that the price is normally 2.99 so if the sale is gone by tomorrow it is still a good deal. There are tons left.

Cub Scout Derby Pictures


If you have elementary age boys, I highly recommend joining Cub Scouts. It's not expensive and gives your boys great opportunities to learn such things as building, cooking, selling and manners. The boys frequently do things such as tours of libraries, fire halls, police stations and outdoor activities. Recently both my sons competed in the Derby races and won second place each in their dens. In a time where every kid gets a trophy when they join any sports team, it's nice to have some real competition where they can actually win and lose. We also helped our daughter build a car. She got to compete with the boys after the official races. She's been to so many Scout meetings that she should be an honorary Scout! She's getting her revenge as they have to now attend her Daisy meetings.

To my Cub Scout mom follower and new friend - you are the first to connect me to this blog! You made my day. Thanks.

Looking for a Job? Great Sites...

Whether you have been laid off or your current job is dissatisfying, job hunting is never easy, especially in our current economic climate. It is a good idea to have more than one site to look for a job. Keep in mind that even if you are looking for a job in accounting, schools and hospitals all need accountants (as well as assistants, guards, computer gurus, etc). Don't limit yourself to just businesses. Many of these sites are relevant to Middle Tennessee, but you can make your own job site list by first finding out who are the biggest employers of your area and going to their websites.

Williamson County, TN

Davidson County, TN

If you are an unemployed Tennessean, you may also wish to consider getting a technical certificate in a field that is in demand. In this instance you would probably be eligible for the Wilder-Naifeh Technical Skills Grant. There are 27 Tech Centers in Tennessee that you can attend with this grant. Here (Murfreesboro location) is a sample of the programs that you can study.

Fresh Mushroom Casserole Recipe

This came from a magazine produced by our local electric company. It sounded so good that I wanted to share.

Fresh Mushroom Casserole
From MTEMC Tennessee Magazine

Ingredients:

1/4 c unsalted butter
1 1/2 lb fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 sweet onion, peeled and chopped
1/2 c chopped celery
1/2 c chopped green bell pepper
1/2 c mayonnaise
8 slices white bread, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 c milk
1 can cream of mushroom soup

Directions:

Place the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, onion, celery and bell pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, for 5 to 8 minutes or until tender. Remove from the heat and drain. Stir in the mayonnaise.

Place half of the bread evenly in a lightly greased 13-inch-by-9-inch baking dish. Spoon the mushroom mixture evenly over the bread. Top with the remaining bread. In a small bowl, combine the eggs and milk. Pour over the bread. Cover and chill at least 8 hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour the soup over the casserole. Top with the cheese, cover and bake 1 hour. Serve warm. Yield: 6 servings.
