Okay, we’re having company tomorrow evening and I have planned the following things, recipes included:
Baked Chicken (crockpot)
- One whole chicken
- Seasonings of your choice (I usually use Rosemary Garlic Seasoning from Sam’s )
Place chicken in the crockpot along with about two cups or more of water. Sprinkle seasonings on top. Cook on low for approximately 6 hours. Voila!
Cheesy Potato Casserole
- 1 (2-lb) package frozen hashed brown potatoes, thawed.
- 1 tsp salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- 1 (10-oz) can cream of chicken soup
- 2 c sour cream
- 8 oz sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 c crushed corn flakes
- ¼ c butter
Combine potatoes, salt, pepper, soup, sour cream, cheese, and onion in bowl; mix well. Spoon into greased 9″×13″ baking dish. Bake at 350℉ for 30 minutes; remove from oven. Cover with corn flakes; drizzle with butter. Bake for 30 minutes longer. Yummy stuff!
Quick Cheese Biscuits
- 1 c all-purpose flour
- 1¼ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ c shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 2 T butter or margarine
- ⅔ c milk
Preheat oven to 450℉. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Stir in cheddar. Cut in butter using a pastry blender or two knives until coarse crumbs form. Using a fork, stir milk into flour mixture until a soft dough forms. Do not over-mix or overwork dough. Drop dough in heaping tablespoons one inch apart onto an un-greased baking sheet. Bake until biscuits are firm to the touch, about 15 minutes.
Fresh veggies, chopped (from the garden!)
Fresh fruit, chopped
Root beer floats for dessert
Hmmm…that’s quite a bit of cheese. I might have to rethink that a little. But everything goes better with cheese so maybe I should just leave it alone!
