This weeks Menu...

Today we had Chicken....imagine that! My parents came over and they got to eat lunch w/us. I tried a new recipe. It was pretty tasty I think. After lunch we had cake for my Mom's Birthday which was Friday.

7 Hour Chicken (Crockpot Recipe but it only took an hour in the oven)

Chicken breasts,
8 oz sour cream
1 pkg Lipton Onion Soup Mix
1 can cream of mushroom soup

Mix the sour cream, soup mix and the soup. Put chicken breast in the casserole dish and spoon mix over the top. Bake at 375 for about an hour, until chicken is done.

This was originally a crockpot recipe. It says to cook it on low for 7 hours.

Monday's Dinner will be something easy. I have to do our Thanksgiving and regular shopping so I won't have a lot of time. We will have Karate at 5 so I have to get dinner done early.

Tuesday's Dinner Taco Soup w/Tortilla Chips and cheese (the twins have their Thanksgiving dinner at school and I am going to go and help with it.) I'll need somthing going while I'm away. We have Karate on Tuesday but this week our midweek church service will be on Tuesday because of Thanksgiving.

Wednesday's Dinner Chicken

Thursday Lunch at about 1 pm.

Turkey, Ham, Mashed Potatoes, The Best Sweet Potato Casserole, Corn, Peas, Dressed Eggs, Stuffing, Turkey Gravy, Rolls and several different desserts. I like to make Holy Cow Cake and Pumpkin Crunch Cake, Peanut Butter Pie. My DMIL usually brings Jello with marshmallows (the kids love this!), Mincemeat Pie and Pumpkin Pie. Sometimes my Mamaw makes us a Pecan's so good!

Friday's Dinner will hopefully be leftovers! We don't do the Black Friday shopping. We tried that last year and were so miserable we said NEVER again! It was so cold and the stores were just lined w/people. It is not worth it to me to get up so early and go out for NOTHING! We couldn't even grab a bite to eat...everything was packed!

If anyone would like any recipes just let me know. I will add the Sweet Potato Casserole recipe on here because it's just the best ever! I'll add the Peanut Butter pie recipe, my stuffing recipe that I came up with on my own. It's really good! I have the others that I talked about too added on here.

Have a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving.

(This is the recipe for stuffing that I came up with. I don't like sausage in the stuffing I like bacon so.......give it a try-it's just awesome!)

Stuffing With Bacon

1 lb. Bacon; cooked and diced
4 Celery ribs; chopped
1 Med. Onion; chopped
1 tsp. Sage
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Pepper
1 Pkg. or 16 oz Cornbread Stuffing
2 TBSP Parsley
4 Eggs; beaten
2 Cans Chicken Broth
1 TBSP Butter or Margarine

Keep 2 tablespoons of grease from the bacon. Put celery and onion in grease until tender, add sage,
salt and pepper. Cook and stir for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in stuffing, parsley and bacon.
Mix together. Combine eggs and broth, add to stuffing. Mix well. Spread in a greased pan and dot
the top with butter. Cover and bake @ 350 for 30 minutes or until lightly browned.

Makes about 13 cups

The Best Sweet Potato Casserole Ever
