SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'
Meet my friend, Charlie, long-time reader of the Rainbow.   Charlie is one of the heroes nobody knows much about but I want you to know about him.   Heroes and Sheroes all around you but you have to take the time to pay attention.   
Charlie is from Chicago and out of 29 men from his neighborhood, only 4 came back from WWII.
Charlie was with the Amphibian forces in the Pacific theatre and came home without his leg.

This is Charlie in his power chair behind the flags in the American Legion parade.

 
I dedicate this Rainbow to Charlie and all the other the other men and women who kept this country free

 Maybe we should all take our kids to this movie

Take A Moment To Thank A Veteran

When you see someone in a uniform,
Someone who serves us all,
Doing military duty,
Answering their country’s call,

Take a moment to thank them
For protecting what you hold dear;
Tell them you are proud of them;
Make it very clear.

Just tap them on the shoulder,
Give a smile, and say,
"Thanks for what you’re doing
To keep us safe in the USA!"

Below are my two favorite breakfast casseroles.  Perfect for anything but especially when you have guests.

Crescent Roll Casserole

1 lb pork sausage, browned and drained
1 (8 oz) pkg crescent rolls
10 eggs, beaten
2 cups mixed shredded cheeses
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp, Italian seasoning

Grease 9X13 pan. Heat oven to 350. Pinch seams together and spread crescent rolls in pan. Bake for 7 minutes. Sprinkle cooked sausage on rolls. Mix eggs, cheese, milk and seasoning and pour over sausage and rolls. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes, reduce to 325 and bake for 20 minutes.

Ham and Hashbrown Casserole

8 frozen shredded hashbrown patties (I used Ore-Ida frozen hashbrowns and just sprinkled them liberally on the bottom of the pan)
4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 lb. cooked ham, cubed (I got this at the deli, asked for thick sliced and diced it when I got home)
7 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp salt

Arrange hashbrown patties in a single layer in a greased 9X13 baking pan. Sprinkle with cheese and ham, set aside. Blend together eggs, milk, mustard and salt in a bowl with a whisk. Pour over ham. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for one hour. Uncover and bake for an additional 20 minutes.




JOKES AND CARTOONS
Give me a sense of humor, Lord,
Give me the grace to see a joke,
To get some humor out of life,
And to pass it on to other folks.

"If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."- Ronald Reagan



All this time, I thought this was Billy Graham's prayer.  It isn't.
Billy Graham's Prayer for Our Nation
http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/prayernation.asp

'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your Forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word Says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have Done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We Have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded Laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it Choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have Neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We Have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's Possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity And pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the Time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search Us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free.
In Jesus name, amen!' With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and Wholeheartedly become our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation under God!'
