When Sarah Kate was born, my neighbor, Amy, made Chicken Tetrazzini for us. I went NUTS over it. I made it today for our group. Here is the recipe.

Saute in butter:

1 white onion
1 bell pepper
3 celery stalks

Then add:

1 can cream of mushroom soup
3 cups of chicken breasts
4 Tbs of slivered almonds
2 cups Sharp cheddar cheese

7 oz. of vermicelli

Combine and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.


Sorry I could only stay for a few minutes and missed out on that wonderful lunch! Thanks for hosting today!

I'm so sorry I missed it! Chris ended up sick at the doctors and I didn't want to potentially bring something around the kiddos!

So sad we had to miss today. Looks like you guys had fun!

If this is the same thing you made for us when Kinley was born, I LOVE it! I will have to try this out soon!

It looks like you all had tons of fun. Mary-Kate would have play group time in the summer. She loved it. I did too to talk with other Moms. Now school has started and I am back to work. It is harder to do.

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
