Great Book!

Here's my first recommendation for the Mom's out there
If you haven't already read it, you must read
The Five Love Languages of Teenagers...
It is such an eye opener, you learn so much about how your children respond to the different love languages. Once you figure out what your child's primary love language is it makes talking to them, disciplining them and parenting them easier...not without conflict but at least you understand a little more where they are coming from

Ground Chicken
Salt and pepper to taste
Olive Oil
1 can of tomatoes
2 cups Hot Sauce (or you can substitute BBQ sauce if you do not like it hot!)
3/4 cup celery
Crumbled Bleu Cheese
Tortilla Chips
Brown chicken in Olive oil. Flavor with salt and pepper. Once browned, add tomatoes, celery and hot sauce. Let simmer for about 20 minutes. Spread tortilla chips on a cookie sheet and top with crumbled bleu cheese, place in broiler until cheese is melted. Dip chips into the chili and this becomes a great appetizer and substitute for greasy messy chicken wings!

Tip from Susan. Do you have any stains on your laundry that you just cannot get out? Try putting dish soap on them before washing. It even works on grease stains! I prefer Polmolive with Oxy or Dawn with Oxy!
