Here is a recipe with 3 ingredients but requires a slow cooker—good for future reference!  Place a beef brisket in slow cooker (size of brisket depends on size of slow cooker).  Spoon 1 can of whole berry cranberry sauce over the top and smear over the brisket with back of spoon.  Sprinkle one packet of DRY onion soup mix over the cranberry covered brisket.  DO NOT ADD WATER! Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.  Serve with buttered noodles, rice, or mashed potatoes.  Enjoy! – Dawn

From Sherri:

2 cups cut-up fresh vegetables (green peppers, zucchini, broccoli, carrots) 2 Tbsp.  olive oil 1 pkg. (6 oz.) OSCAR MAYER Deli Fresh Grilled Chicken Breast Strips 4 oz.  linguine, cooked, drained (about 2 cups) 3 Tbsp. KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese Make It
COOK and stir vegetables in hot oil in large skillet on medium heat 5 min. or until crisp-tender.

ADD chicken and linguine; cook an additional 2 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally.

STIR in the cheese.

I know that you were asking for only 4 ingredients but I don’t consider olive oil or parmesean cheese ingredients.  I consider them necessities!

Volcanoes of the Deep Sea in Pittsburgh

This looks cool! Click here to get to the movie’s website.



Plunge 12,000 feet into the Atlantic to explore the greatest underwater mountain chain on Earth

PITTSBURGH, PA— An ancient species that lives 12,000 feet below the surface of the ocean. Animals that thrive on thermal vents. Life where daylight never shines? These may seem like elements of a sci-fi novel, but they exist today and come alive in Volcanoes the Deep Seapremiering Friday, November 20, at Carnegie Science Center’s Rangos Omnimax Theater.

Volcanoes of the Deep Sea follows the story of two scientists aboard the submersible Alvin as they plunge into the deep Atlantic to explore astounding volcanic habitats on the crest of the Mid-Ocean Ridge. Miles below the ocean surface, this world looks like a science fiction writer’s imagined inferno. Here, audiences explore some of the planet’s hidden treasures—completely unknown until just a few decades ago—and possibly even reveal the key to understanding life on Earth.

As they travel from dramatic Spanish sea cliffs to deep-sea sites and even into space, audiences discover the unique characteristics of the greatest underwater mountain chain on Earth, its connection to our evolving planet, and its profound influence on life on Earth.

Should Have Known LOL

I should have known I’d get something like this…..ask a simple question ….LOL:

Here’s a quick and easy recipe that’s good any time of the day. I like to call it “toast.”


–          Two slices of bread (more if you’re REALLY hungry)

–          Butter

–          Optional: cinnamon, jelly, jam, marmalade, cream cheese or any combination of the aforementioned

1. Insert two slices of  your favorite bread into a toaster. Set toaster dial to desired level of darkness and pull lever down.

2. While bread is toasting, retrieve butter or margarine from refrigerator. You’ll also need a butter knife so you may as well get one of those while waiting for the bread to toast.

3. Remove toast from toaster when the toasted bread pops up and move to a plate. Be careful because that toast will be hot!

4. Spread butter (or other topping from list) on hot toast with butter knife and enjoy!

TIP: Wipe your butter knife on a napkin before getting more butter so as to avoid getting unsightly toast crumbs in your butter dish.
