Interesting about assassinated Presidents......
Four U.S. Presidents have been assassinated while in office and many more have faced serious attempts on their lives. Andrew Jackson holds the dubious distinction of being the first sitting president to survive a serious assassination attempt, which occurred in 1835. Thirty years later, Abraham Lincoln was the first to be slain.
It was April 15, 1865, and the Civil War had officially ended just five days earlier. President Abraham Lincoln and his wife were attending Ford's Theater that evening to watch the play "Our American Cousin" when John Wilkes Booth shot him in the back of the head. Lincoln, fatally wounded, was taken across the street to Petersen House, where he died at 7:22 the next morning.
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 (3-ounce) packages chicken-flavored Ramen noodles
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup frozen peas and carrots (or whatever is your favorite frozen vegetables)
To make this more of a meal, add some cooked, chunked chicken. Yum!
Speaking of recipes, my pal Jeannie made the BBQ Beef Casserole I posted on Friday, 12-13, and she said it was "yummy". She also made an addition of Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder and garlic salt, pepper, and oregano. Plus she said add more cheese.
