Chicken Broccoli Casserole

The Fall season conjures up thoughts of hot apple cider, sweaters, fireplaces and the upcoming holidays.  It also brings to my mind hearty, nutritious, comfort food.  Nothing is better than having a family meal with everyone gathered around the dinner table (unless your husband is the UPS man and works late...) and serving a meal that will put a smile on each person's face.  

Chicken Broccoli Casserole

One shredded cooked chicken  (2 to 3 cups)**turkey works well, too!
One large package frozen broccoli florets, cooked
One package pasta (small to medium shells, rotini, penne, etc.), cooked
Italian Seasoned bread crumbs, 1 cup
6 to 7 tablespoons butter, melted
Cubed or shredded sharp cheddar cheese, 1 to 2 cups
1 1/2  tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. curry seasoning
One cup mayonnaise
2 cans cream of chicken soup

Lightly grease a 9 x 13 inch pan.  Mix bread crumbs with butter and spread half of mixture on bottom of pan.  Place cooked broccoli over bread crumbs.  Then layer shredded chicken over broccoli.  

Next mix mayonnaise, 2 cans cream of chicken soup, curry powder, lemon juice together.  Fold cooked pasta and shredded cheese in (I use sharp cheddar).  Spoon this on top of chicken and spread so it covers all layers.  Sprinkle other half of bread crumbs over all.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes.

This a great meal and has the vegetables right in it!  I often make this and then serve it with dinner rolls and a fruit salad.  This dish is also great to take to a pot luck or to someone who has had a baby, recovering from surgery or just a "welcome to the neighborhood" meal.  This has been a favorite of my family's for over 30 years (don't judge, I am a "very young old person" lol). 

Hope that you will give this a try and that your family enjoys it, too!

Easy Skeleton Cookies

Looking for a cute Halloween treat for your party this weekend?  I made Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie mix according to package directions, added a couple of tablespoons dry cocoa mix for chocolate cookies and then used a gingerbread man cookie cutter to cut out my shapes.  Bake according to package directions.  Mix up the Bakery Style Sugar Cookie Icing and ice accordingly so you have skeletons!  So easy and pretty cute!

It is similar to a pumpkin pie but uses sweet potato, pumpkin, and coconut milk and usually contains no pie crust. I chose this recipe for not only the pumpkin lovers, but {and I know I am not alone} for those of us who don't dislike pumpkin pie, but I'm just not that thrilled about it. I don't know if it was the coconut milk, the sweet potato or the nutmeg, but after only one bite, I wanted more. The combination of the coconut milk and heavy cream, layered with the sweet potatoe and nutmeg flavor, really enhanced the flavor of this almost pumpkin pie dessert.
