The pork chops scallop recipe suggests using cream of mushroom soup, but you can use cream of celery or cream of potato soup if you prefer. You could also use raw mushrooms in place of the canned ones.

The Gibanica recipe is one that my neighbour, Michelle, made and shared with me. It is a traditional Serbian layered cheese pie that her friend Lola makes often. Most boxes of phyllo dough have 10-12 sheets. If there are an uneven amount in your package, you can add another crumpled sheet with your previous layer. Gibanica can be served right away. Leftovers are best heated up in an oven or toaster oven, although the microwave is okay, too.

The maple glazed carrots are made in the Crock-Pot and are delicious. When I made them I didn’t have any marmalade on hand, so I used apricot jam and was pleased with the result.

Thanks to all who continue to share your random acts of kindness with us. Someone opened both doors for an elderly lady at the bank; my neighbour brought my mail in for me; two people had their morning coffee paid for at a drive through; my cousin, Bruce, washed my car; I took a birthday cake to one of the girls at my dentist’s office; a friend delivered socks and mitts to the homeless.
