Picture of the Day...

Interesting .....
McDonald’s distributes 1.5 billion toys annually, making them the largest distributor of toys in the world. Approximately 20% of all purchases at McDonald’s are Happy Meals, which comes with a toy. In the United States alone, nine out of ten kids between the ages of 3 and 9 eat at McDonald’s at least once a month. With 68 million Happy Meals sold on a daily basis, if you do the math… that’s a lot of toys. McDonald's rolled out the first Happy Meal in 1979. The biggest hit toy that came from the Happy Meal was the Ty Beanie Baby.

From Mr. Food
Potato Corn Soup

Nothing is more welcoming than a big pot of soup at the end of a long day, and with our recipe for Potato Corn Soup you can whip up a bowl of comfort anytime you want. It takes just about 30 minutes to get this soup on your dinner table, which makes it weeknight-friendly, too!


  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and cut into small cubes
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1/4 cup diced cooked ham
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  1. In a soup pot over high heat, combine chicken broth, potatoes, and onion; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and cook 10 to 12 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over low heat, melt butter; whisk in flour until smooth.
  3. Whisk flour mixture into soup until thickened. Slowly stir in remaining ingredients, mixing well. Simmer 5 to 10 minutes, or until heated through.
