Operation Christmas Child

Have you heard of Samaritian's Purse?
They are having a pack a shoe box for a child, known as Operation Christmas Child and add $7.00 for shipping to Asia.
It sounds like a good cause so I found 2 shoe boxes and have covered them in wrapping paper.

1- Shoe Box (cover or not your choice)

2- Boy or Girl (label from website)

3- Fill with Gifts (they have a list of ideas to follow)

4- Include your $7 donation to help cover shipping

5- Drop Off (look for a local area or mail it to them)

If your interested you can go to www.samaritianpurse.org and click on the Operation Christmas Child. This is for a good cause.

Beef & Broccoli Stir Fry


The secret of this recipe is... I use left over grilled steak sliced very thin and yes! Beer. (sorry chicken broth works as a sub if you don't have beer)

First of all, I get a wok out and set it on Med heat and add Vegetable oil.

I cut up broccoli about 4 cups and place in wok stir them with a wood spoon and add 2 packets of splenda sugar (best sugar in the world) and place 1 1/2 tablespoons of garlic paste. Gently tossing add about 2 tablespoons of soy sauce and pour in 1 cup of beer (choice Bud light lime) Stir fry coating each in sauce in the bottom by gently stirring. Ok, Add beef and keep tossing gently. Now push everything up the sides of the wok so the middle is just sauce and about 2 tablespoons of corn starch.
mix only in the center of wok and if it appears too lumpy add more beer and 2 more spenda sugar packets. Stir in center of pan til cornstarch is dissolved. Mix all the ingredients in the pan gently til broccoli is well coated. Can I say this has the best flavor. Serve, may add more soy sauce if too sweet but I think it is perfect.
