This excerpt is so HILARIOUS! This is a segment from "Whatever, Martha!". Watch it, I promise you'll laugh outloud!
With the title of my blog you'd think that I am a big Martha follower. I can't say that I LOVE her but I do find some of her ideas quite fun. On the other hand I do find some of her idea's really ridiculous. I came across this show on the Fine Living Network and I fell in love with it! "Whatever, Martha!", is hosted by Martha's daughter Alexis and her best friend Jennifer. They watch an episode of Martha Stewart Living and give their hilarious commentary on her ideas. Alexis also talks frequently about life with "Martha".
I think it's on Mondays and Tuesdays at 9:00pm and 9:30pm. If you catch an episode tell me what you think!
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cubed
1 cup sliced carrots
1 cup frozen green peas
1/2 cup sliced celery
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
1 3/4 cups chicken broth
2/3 cup milk
2 (9 inch) unbaked pie crusts
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C.)
In a saucepan, combine chicken, carrots, peas, and celery. Add water to cover and boil for 15 minutes. Remove from heat, drain and set aside.
In the saucepan over medium heat, cook onions in butter until soft and translucent. Stir in flour, salt, pepper, and celery seed. Slowly stir in chicken broth and milk. Simmer over medium-low heat until thick. Remove from heat and set aside.
Place the chicken mixture in bottom pie crust. Pour hot liquid mixture over. Cover with top crust, seal edges, and cut away excess dough. Make several small slits in the top to allow steam to escape.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.
(Note from The Martha Reject: I bake for 30 mins. and brush egg whites on the crust every 10 mins. )

Anyone wondering why I am wearing this crazy pink dress? My father in law is an Ebay fanatic. Seriously. He saw this Georgio Armani originally priced $4,000.00 for $13.00. Seriously? He thought it was such a great deal he bought it. It didn't fit anyone so I tried it on. It fit sort of. It was ill made and truthfully I feel I could have sewn a nicer dress than this frock. I am going to go ahead and guess that Dave was fooled again with Ebay trickery. Yes there is a designer label inside but I'm pretty sure Georgio wouldn't put his name on this hot pink hot mess. It was fun struting around in it anyway. Dave said I should wear it for New Years Eve. Simply hilarious.
I watched Jackson while Katie made another batch of her ridiculously good fudge. Not even close to being on my diet!

My Aunt Barb sent me this video and I loved it so much you all have to watch it too. I promise it will make you smile!!
Another favorite is a good burger! I have been changing my eating habits for the past month. I can't believe how much better I feel and some weight is falling off too! I am in LOVE in MorningStar's Grillers Prime. I really could leave meat forever but I have always heard I still need it for protein and iron. Not so! I find that these are wonderful tasting and not the creepy texture you get from some veggie burgers. I highly sugest these if you want a meat alternative! I put mine in the microwave and they aren't soggy. Ry has even grilled them for me and they are wonderful.
The other three favorite things are books. I could spend my whole life reading if it would pay the bills. My favorite adult reader right now is the book below. I read it in 2 days. Just a wonderful warm fuzzies book. Loved it!!! Five Stars
I also have a huge passion for children's books. I LOVE to sit in the back of Barnes and Noble and read all the newest ones on the back wall. My all time favorite is, "On the Night You Were Born". I cry every single time I read it!! Love it. No kids yet for me but I can't imagine reading it if I did! Ryan would have to lock me away. My newest favorite out right now is, "Bats at the Beach". I'm hoping to get it for Christmas. The illustrations are just great. I laughed the whole time I read it at B&N. I'm sure people thought I was nuts.
