Great LEXpectations

Posted on Updated on

By Alan Kilpatrick

Our colleagues at the Law Society of Manitoba Library recently launched a new blog called Great LEXpectations. It is written and maintained by the Law Society of Manitoba’s Librarian, Karen Sawatzky, and Library Assistant, Stafany Shirley, with new posts every week or two.

On Great LEXpectations, you will find research tips, resources, and news of interest to members of the Manitoba legal profession. Some recent posts include:

As the Legal Sourcery team has indicated in the past, coming up with a good blog name can be difficult. The About GreatLEXpectations page describes how their blog name was created:

Great LEXpectations is a play on words of the Dickens novel, Great Expectations, and lex, the latin word for law. The library for the Law Society of Manitoba and the legal profession, is called the Great Library, thus the mashup of “Great LEXpectations”.

We look forward to following Great LEXpectations! You can find it online at

On the sixth (business) day of Christmas, the Law Society staff gives to you:

Swiss Chicken Bake

You will need:

9×13 baking dish (greased)
8 chicken breasts (deboned and skinless)
2 cans cream of chicken soup
Swiss cheese

Spices: garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, seasoning salt, roasted red pepper and garlic flakes (all to taste)

I have cut up fresh mushrooms and asparagus and added it to #3 of the directions.


  1. Cut chicken into chunks and place in the 9×13 greased baking dish.
  2. Cover chicken with swiss cheese
  3. In a bowl, combine soup, milk and spices. Pour over cheese.
  4. Shake stove top chicken stuffing over top (without cooking it first)
  5. Melt ¼ cup butter or margarine and drizzle over stove top chicken stuffing.


  1. Set stove to 350 degrees and bake uncovered for 45-60 minutes.
