Thursday, January 27, 2011

Carmen told a story that was a follow-up to an incident that happened a year ago; God has so turned the whole thing around!

LISTEN   Hear what happened when Carmen took a business lunch to Panera!

LISTEN   Dave talked about the importance of reconciliation to relationships.

25 Years of Helping You Find JOY! The JOY FM celebrates a quarter-century of music and ministry this year. Since not too many folks are familiar with the heritage, we asked our founder and president, Jim Campbell, to tell a story or two.

LISTEN  First, "Brother Jim" gave his honest evaluation of the show... with a side of corn.

LISTEN  Jim told us how The JOY FM came into the network "with a handshake."

LISTEN  Carmen was tearing up when she asked Jim for two memorable moments.

And now for something completely different, a woman with nine toes and dinner suggestions! (Note: the producers would like to apologize for juxtaposing the words "toes" and "dinner." The producers have been sacked.)

LISTEN   Only Carmen would do this just weeks before her half marathon.

THIS IS WORSE   Here's the link for the healing cream with the "indelicate" name!!!!!

LISTEN   Bill has a crisis over dinner, and we don't mean eating it.

LISTEN   This caller has a simple, delish dish for us. Grab a pen!

LISTEN   Another! You guys are such good cooks.


Okay, here is Bill's attempt to reproduce Emilie's Chicken Croquettes Recipe:

  • 2 cups cooked, cubed, boneless, lean chicken
    2-3 tbsp almond flour (note: this is for special diets. regular flour may be substituted)
    1 raw egg
    onion, quartered
    1 tbsp
    parsley and optional herbs and spices: oregano, basil, thyme, sage
    2-3 tbsp butter for frying


  • In a food processor, place the chicken, onion, egg and (optional) parsley.

Blend until smooth (Emilie says you'll know when that is!)
Add 1-2 tbsp flour and optional seasonings
Blend a few seconds, just to mix in

SHAPE into patties, about 1/2 inch thick (note: if the mixture won't shape, then the consistency is wrong, and more flour may be needed)

FRY in butter in skillet until croquettes turn golden brown.

SERVE  with a parsley garnish and lemon squeeze for addional flavor
