It has been a busy, full week but we got a lot done and made memories as we went!
My garden is finally coming around. My jalapenos, tomatoes and peppers are taking off. My lettuce and carrots are not doing too shabby. Corn and beans are lagging behind because I started them a bit late.
I still get giddy when I see my veggies growing!
This little guy came for a visit. Alyssa walked off the back porch and he was hanging out in the bush. If only I could have seen her face!
After this last week, the kids wanted to keep him for a pet. By the time daddy got home (momma isn't into catching snakes!) we couldn't find him.
I am trying something a little new starting this week. At least once a week I am going to make something DIFFERENT! Brian and I are getting so tired of the same meals. Obviously, the kids don't mind but we needed some change.
I made this chicken casserole last night. It was delicious and everyone liked it!
The picture didn't turn out the best. I had a hungry crew waiting!
Chicken and Rice Casserole
1 1/2 cups of white rice
2 cups of water
1 can cream of chicken soup
4 chicken breast
In 13x9 pan cover the bottom with rice. In a bowl mix water and soup. Pour that over the rice. Place chicken on top of rice. Bake at 350 for about 1 1/2 hours.
I made two pans of this. On one, I sprinkled onion soup mix on the top. I figured the kids would like it better without and they did. I also cut the chicken into strips instead of putting the whole chicken on top. Like I said, I had a hungry crew. ;)
