My hands hurt, my fingers are sore and I think I sprained my left wrist. :) I had soooooo much fun playing Guitar Hero 3. I am not terribly musical. I enjoy music, but I am not talented. I played in the marching band in High School, but I was average.

So I was completely befuddled by the lure of Guitar Hero. My hubby loves Music. He plays the Bass Guitar. He wanted the game and sat down and played it through in one sitting.

I, however, couldn't even make it through the first song on Easy mode my first time out of the gate.

Somehow, on Saturday, I picked up the guitar and didn't put it down for about 10 hours. I finished the game on Easy. I know, Easy mode is well Easy. But I knew nothing about the guitar and my fingers are like spastic rubber bands missing all grace and rhythm. It was ALOT of fun. If you haven't tried it, be warned. Guitar Hero is highly addictive:)

If you've looked at my Xfire you can see I did not log in very many hours in the last week online in game. With the holidays, I found myself not going to the keyboard. And I was sick, which took away my desire to hack-n-slash Kobolds and Ogres.

For those of you who are like me, you may have some Turkey in your fridge you don't want to have to throw away, but in all honesty if you eat any more turkey you are going to grow feathers. My mom always made Turkey A La King. I am including the recipe below. Its quick, easy, filling and most of all, you won't know its Turkey in there :)


  • 3/4 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups cooked diced chicken
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • dash pepper
  • 1 cup cream or half-and-half (or milk)
  • 2 egg yolks


Sauté mushrooms in 1 tablespoon butter until tender. Stir in chicken; set aside.

In a saucepan, melt 1/4 cup butter over low heat. Stir in flour until smooth and bubbly. Gradually add chicken broth and continue cooking and stirring until sauce is thickened and bubbly.

Add chicken and sauteed vegetables. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Heat cream until hot then quickly stir into the beaten egg yolks. Add egg yolk mixture to the chicken mixture and heat thoroughly over low heat, but do not boil.

Serve over biscuits, rice or noodle.

Serves 6.
