September is chicken month. A good recipe to try is:

Baked chicken

1 package of chicken breast

1 can of evaporated milk

cornflake crumbs

Dip chicken in milk, roll in crumbs. Place on foil in open pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

No cook lunch menu: luncheon meat of your choice, whole grain bread. Place meat on bread and serve with green salad.

Tuna sandwich

1 small can tuna

1 small jar diced pimentos, drained

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup chopped celery

1 to 2 boiled eggs

Combine all ingredients and mix well. Spread a little mayonnaise on a slice of bread and put tuna mixture on it.

Household tip: Recycle mustard bottles and put vinegar and cooking oil in them. By doing this, you will not use too much vinegar or oil.

Beauty tip: For smooth hands and feet, put petroleum jelly on them at night and then put on gloves and socks and sleep in them.
