It is a beautiful day today!! I am so glad. It is just awesome!

I have a few things that I need to do today so I can't write a whole lot. The baby is taking her nap, the kids are playing and being quiet-maybe I shouldn't type that because that may ruin it! HA! I have a few things that I need to pick up at Wal-Mart today, so I'll be running out later.

Lunch today is: Chili and Cornbread (simple but good)

Dinner is: Melt in Your Mouth Chicken, Velveet Shells and Cheese and Rolls

Here are the recipes for the Chicken and the Rolls:

Melt in Your Mouth Chicken

1- 3lb. chicken (boil until tender)
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 cups chicken broth (I used the water the chicken cooked in)
1 stick melted margarine
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup self rising flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

Cube chicken and place in greased casserole dish. Combine the cream of chicken soup and the chicken broth and pour over chicken. Combine margarine, buttermilk, flour, salt and pepper and pour over above to make crust.Bake at 425 for 30 minutes.

I've not made the rolls before so this will be an experiment for me. I'll post my review later after we have tried them. The chicken is very good. I have made it before and we love it!

40 Minute Rolls

2 Tbsp yeast
1 cup + 2 Tbsp warm water
1/3 cup oil
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1-2 cups white flour

Combine the yeast and warm water. Add the oil and sugar and let sit for 5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and knead until a soft dough forms. Shape into balls and place on a greased baking sheet. Rest 10 minutes. Bake at 425 for 8-10 minutes until done. Makes 12 rolls.

That is all I have time for right now so until next time be good and be frugal!

That melt in your mouth chicken is one of my FAVES!!! I use Bisquick in place of the self rising flour. It works too! :)
