A Woman's Work is Never Done!

Do you ever wonder how they made it back years ago with 10 + children, no washing machine, no dryer, no dishwasher? I am just baffled! We have 5 and I have all of these things and still seem to be pressed for time! Sometimes I think we just have too much scheduled! We seem to be on the go way too much! Boy, I sure do use that exclamation point a lot. LOL :0)

Yesterday was our sweet baby girl's doctor appointment. She has sure grown. She is now 18 lbs and 30 inches long. She has a cold and an ear infection. So, she's a bit cranky. (I say like her mama!) LOL

I found a new blog to visit and she had a nice recipe posted there. I have written it down and plan on using it next week. I don't have any beef broth right now. I'll have to work it into a menu. I have just been winging it here lately. Going to Aldi's tomorrow and will see what I can pick up for a good price. With feeding so many of us I try to have healthy, good but cheaper meals. Is there really such a thing anymore? Seems like every time I turn around something new isn't good for us! Then in a couple of years it's oh, not so bad for us. I never know what to cook. LOL

Tomorrow while I'm gone I will have some Taco Soup going in the crockpot. Our oldest has requested this. It is very yummy with Tortilla chips. So, that will be a good dinner tomorrow night. Tonight is a chicken casserole. I have some cooked chicken in the frig and need to use it up so that it doesn't ruin. So, I'll run and get the kids in a bit and start dinner. Yummy, creamy casserole. I'll probably make biscuits to go with it. The casserole makes a gravy that is so good and the biscuits will complement it very well.

Well, that's it for today. Kind of a gloomy looking day today. Cloudy and looks like we're going to get some rain. There isn't rain in the forecast but we all know how that goes.....

I'll update after I get back from the grocery tomorrow if I got any good deals. :0)

Hi Angie! What's the new recipe you're trying? Post it for us when you've tried it :) And I was wondering about your creamy chicken casserole that makes it's own gravy... sounds like a winner to me! Can you post that one, too? In all your spare time, of course!! LOL.

Love reading your blog!
Hugs, Miriam

Hello. Nice to "see" you again. I've enjoyed seeing you pop in over here and I enjoy reading what you have on your blog. I guess it's just the nosey side of me-seeing what others are doing. :0)

The recipe that I made tonight wasn't really new. I have made it several times but since there's such a long interval in between the kids forget if they liked it or not! lol

I took a picture of our dinner when I set it out on the table. I'll have to post it later.

Hugs and here's the recipe in case you haven't tried it.

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.
