I have got to stop going to the grocery store. It makes my cry. I went to town today and stopped at our little local market. I can usually get 20 lbs of potatoes for $3.99 at the most. Today it was $6.49 for 10 pounds. I nearly cried right there at the check-out. What are we going to do? My children are all of a sudden very interested in economics.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to travel across America? Not walk like some silly folks, or even a covered wagon. But an honest to goodness RV with a shower! To me life is not relaxing if you can’t take a shower. I guess I am officially getting old. Hubby’s parents are currently touring America in an RV and we get a new post card every few days. Never before has that looked so appealing. Is it the weather you think? Is it the fact that our youngest is now 5 and I am not over run with more little hands than I can hold at once? Or maybe it was that last disastrous traveling adventure by plane. I cannot even think Starbucks anymore. You know every airport has at least 3 Starbucks. I have a desire to shop for a New RV and drive off into the sunset. I don’t know, but for a fleeting moment today I could see myself like those campers at the state park with their satellite dish and their RV’s. OK yeah, I have lost my mind. He he, I am coveting retired folks’ lifestyles. Somebody wake me up.
Here is our famous chicken and noodles recipe, not to be confused with our southern Chicken and dumplins (which are homemade noodles). Hopefully this is easy enough for you Shannon over at Rocks in my Dryer, I hear she can only count to 5 .
- 3 large chicken breasts, cooked and diced
- 2 large packages brocolli, chopped in large bite size pieces
- 2 bags wide egg noodles
- 6 cups white cream sauce (homemade recipe following)
- 1 bag shredded italian mix cheese
cook noodles, ad add broccoli about half way through, drain, add other ingrediets except cheese, mix well, add a little seasoning of your choice (we put cajun spice in everything) put it all in large casserole dish, top with cheese, bake 15 minutes or until cheese bubbles, of course this recipe will feed an army, or a normal family + an 18 yr old boy
to make your own white sauce, in large sauce pan ove med heat, melt 1 stick butter, add 1 cup flour mix well to make thick paste, slowly add in whole milk stirring well, I would put in about half a gallon, keep stirring as it thickens
