I made this Broccoli Chicken Casserole with broccoli from my garden. I was excited to use it. This year is my first growing a vegetable garden and I have been blessed with a bounty! It feels great to purchase fewer food items at the grocery. This casserole is intended to be a main dish. It includes your protein, veggie and starch. I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine does.
1 package long grain and wild rice mix, prepared according to package directions 2 bunches of broccoli, steamed and cut up 2 cups raw chicken, cut into bite sized pieces 1 bunch of green onion,chopped 1/2 cup celery, chopped 2 cloves garlic, chopped 1 can cream of mushroom soup 1 Tablespoon olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Saute the vegetables in olive oil until wilted. Add chicken pieces and cook until chicken is cooked. In a buttered casserole dish, mix together all ingredients and bake in oven for 25 minutes. Makes 6 servings.
In the midst of buying gifts and decking the halls, I have been thinking about my table setting for the big Christmas dinner. Diving into countless blogs, written by the most creative, stylish women, I have encountered some pretty ideas, which any skill level can duplicate. Each of these tablescapes can be personalized with your own color scheme and embellishments that would make them unique to your personal style. Each one is affordable, and let’s face it; affordability is always important during the costly Christmas season.
Kristen, from Sophia’s Decor, offers this creation placed into a rectangular box. Into this box she placed a composition of seasonal greenery, bulbs all anchored with candlesticks. The box could be a salvaged piece or you could go with a planter or a basket. Can you think of some ways to make it yours?
Versitle. Layered. Elegance.
I felt like I could move into the home of Christy, from Our Southern Home. She loves Country French decorating and so do I. Looking about my house, more than half of the furniture is Country French in style. What I like most about her tablescape is that it is usable for everyday. How often do we keep the really nice decorating for the rooms off limits to family life? Not here:
Love the USABLE elements used here...
Who has thrown away or recycled pretty glass jars?I know I have. Recently, I have begun to repurpose them and Aimee from Simple Bites has the coolest way to use them. Aimee uses them as candle holders for her Christmas table. Can you imagine how great this would look on your next party table? If your style is rustic or shabby chic, use them as is. Some sparkles and ribbon would bling them up for a dressier style. Any way you personalize them, they are simple and CHEAP. Perfect combination. Now, I might start choosing my jam not by flavor, but by jar style….
