Skunk-B-Gone {Odor Remover}

My friend, Dottie, shared this recipe with me when I was busy training a puppy.  It will remove a yucky smell from nearly anything.  She's even bathed her dogs with it when they've encountered a skunk. And it WORKS!!  I've used it in a variety of places with on both hard and soft surfaces.  It's truly amazing.

1, 16 oz bottle of peroxide (the kind you bathe wounds with)
2 cups of water
1 Tablespoon of Dawn dishwashing liquid (the plain old blue stuff)
2 Tablespoons of baking soda

I keep this in a spray bottle to use on any yucky smelling spots.  Spray, scrub, and rinse.  It works.

Chinese Chicken Casserole

Marilyn was my neighbor for many years. She was in a "Literary Club" and made this delicious casserole for an evening event.  I was delighted when she shared the recipe. {I would guess that this recipe was popular in the 1950's.}

This is what I often take when  "taking in a meal."  :)  It's quick, tasty, and old fashioned comfort food.
