Why, hello there. It's me. Steph. The author of this blog. It's been a while. I know. The last few months, I was dealing with the third trimester of my pregnancy. With a two-and-a-half year old in tow. 2 months ago, I gave birth to my beautiful daughter, Margaret Jane; "Maggie" to all who know her best. It has been... an adjustment. But...not nearly as bad as I thought. One of the things that has become increasingly difficult is computer time. Not just blogging, but emailing, staying in touch with the outside world (which is important, as I've been a bit confined to the house with a newborn in winter).
Things are finally settling a bit, and I'm finding my life falling into place again.
Perhaps I'll even pick up blogging!
There is plenty of post fodder with 2 kids, not to mention some great recipes I've stumbled upon. Now that I'm here, while both kiddos are up in their rooms (notice I did not say "napping." "Napping" would be great. I'll take quietly playing or stirring today), I figured I'd share with you an AH-MAH-ZING meal I made this week! I cannot take full credit for the base recipe - but I'll share with you my tweaks, which culminated in a to-die-for dish.
Yum. Yum. Aaaaaaand Yum.
I was all set to throw my Slowcooker Chicken Casserole into the crock pot, when I realized I didn't have cream of mushroom soup. Dang. So I took inventory of my pantry, got some inspiration, and went to the 'net to see if my theory could, in fact, come together as a meal. I was affirmed - I found almost the exact dish I had envisioned all nicely typed up into a recipe. I made a few adjustments, and the result was a GREAT DINNER.
The original recipe can be found HERE.
Here is the recipe I threw together, after taking note of adjustments other people made in the comments section of the original recipe...
