The Sinking of the Titanic…and other Sunday Tales

Titanic is on TV. I absolutely loved this movie when it first came out. I saw it several times at the theater and sang the song very loudly in the car back and forth from Jackson to Henderson where I attended college. Those were great days. Now of course, I’m wondering why she didn’t pull him up on the door and keep each other warm. I mean…that oak door would have held them both. HE DIDN’T HAVE TO DIE!!!! Come back Jack!!!


Anyway. I found some cool chicken sliders at Publix. (I haven’t professed my love for Publix lately. I shall do it here. I love Publix. Big red heart.) What impressed me, other than the fact they were ground chicken, was the label. No nitrates or preservatives.

*****Titanic Report: I’m at the part where Rose comes down the stairs to see a new spiffy shined Jack. I want her dress*****



Check them out. I didn’t use any seasonings other than pepper. This is just begging for a wheat flatbread!



I was craving potato soup. I made some.


So, my lunch was outstanding. Chicken slider with spinach and sharp cheddar with Potato Soup


**** Titanic report: I’m definitely more of a Steerage girl with the music, dancing, and spoon-tapping. The stuffy people on top deck bore me silly***


Why are some Sundays slow and peaceful and others are jam packed and speed by and I find myself at midnight with a lot left on my to-do list??? But, I’ve gotten a lot done. I’m one of those who get great satisfaction in crossing things off a list. I make lists for everything and with each line I draw, I feel better. But when I add more junk to the list I just get all fuss-trated again.


****Titanic report: Ah, the infamous metaphorical Mother binding and trapping Rose into the physical corset and the symbolic binding her to marriage the cruel Cal with the Cowlick. All so the mother won’t have to sew again. But, this line is so true “We’re women…our choices are never easy”. ****


Dinner time!!

I loved the Orange Beef and Broccoli I made last week, but wanted to change it up a bit.  Orange Beef and Vegetables. There…that changes it a TON!! 😉

The Sauce:

  • 1/3 cup of broth
  • 1/3 cup of orange marmalade. I used Polaner’s All Fruit. It has no added sugar, just orange and other fruit juices.
  • 2 T of low-sodium soy sauce



Stir fry some vegetables: Zucchini, mushrooms, and red pepper



Set aside vegetables and cook beef strips in a little olive oil or sesame oil.

Then, combine with the vegetables and pour sauce over both. Those little strips are the actual orange rind from the marmalade.





****Titanic Report: Rose is Flying!!!!****

Breakfast of Champions—A wake-up call.
See, Mom!!
