Yesterday morning I asked the kids what they might like for dinner. In half a second Madi spoke up and requested Cheese Chicken. So last night when she smelled it baking she was happy. When I first got out of the Air Force I used my medical skills and got a job working at Spokane Orthopedic and Fracture Clinic...this is when we were stationed up in Washington state. I worked with the sweetest lady named Nancy and this is who shared this favorite family recipe with me.

2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 TBSP butter
2c. grated cheddar
mix soup and cheese in baking dish
lay chicken in mixture

Bake 350 for 1 1/2 hours

I have been doing so much sewing lately my paper crafts had been forgotten. So last week I had my paper fix and made some cards. The cool stamp I used is from Studio Calico. For the last few months I have ordered Studio Calico's kit of the month and LOVE them.
Well we have made it halfway through Steve's deployment to Iraq. He has done 1 tour in Afghanistan and is now on his 3rd tour in Iraq but this is the worst one as far as getting to talk to my guy. He has a satellite phone in his office but that is a hunk of junk! No DSN phone near him so we have to pay for phone cards...okay but the stupid PX over there is out of them...can you believe that. So I need to go buy some phone cards to mail him but right now it doesn't make me feel better because it's going to take at least 10 days for him to get them. We have only talked 4 times since he has left. But I am doing okay. I can't believe we are halfway done! My lifesaver has been my crafts. I have totally immersed myself in my favorite crafts and have accomplished so much these last few months. So thanks to all those wonderful crafty blogs out there for sharing so many wonderful ideas and motivating me!!!
