What impressed me about John Kralik's story was his commitment to writing a thank you note a day for a total of 365 days. Which leads me to comment how few written notes we even receive in the mail today. Twitter, email and other social networking systems keep us all so connected in ways people do not feel the need to write notes and put them in the mail. One important idea I did take away from this book is finding one person a day in our lives to show gratitude and say thank you. Check out this inspiring story. I even found out it can be downloaded to a Kindle or NOOK:)
Oh, and I do want to stop here and say thank you to those who have kept up reading Ever Ready blog postings. I just recently realized since 9/3/09 I have written 412 blogs. Wow... think of all the food consumed along the way testing recipes.
A comment about white sauce called bechamel used in the Sausage-Chicken Manicotti. I did list ingredients but not directions. The sauce is easy.

Cook on low heat for 1 minute
Whisk in 2-1/2 cups 2% milk, 1/4 tsp. pepper, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/8 tsp. nutmeg bring to simmer stirring constantly till thickens
Add 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese and stir in
Remove from heat
