Food-a-licious Friday {81} Estle Family Casserole

One of my cute friends is super creative in the kitchen and I asked her if she’d share some of her favorite family recipes with us. Brittney and I went to high school together…so we go waaaay back. She married her high school sweetheart and they have 2 of the most adorable kids you ever did see. 
Take it away Brit!
Broccoli Rice and Chicken Casserole 
(Feeds 4-6) 
 2.5 cups cooked rice (5 minute, white, or brown)
 1 bag frozen or fresh broccoli 
 1-2 chicken breasts (or I often use leftover grilled chicken from the night before)
 1 can cream of mushroom soup (or cream of celery if you’re not into mushrooms)
 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, colby or mexi blend)
Salt and pepper to taste

So start with boiling chicken until cooked through, then shred (or dice leftover chicken into small pieces).  
Put cooked chicken, frozen or fresh brocoli, cream of mushroom soup, and cooked rice in a big bowl and stir until blended.  I add salt and pepper here.  (if  you’re into garlic salt, through that in too)  
Pour entire bowl into caserole dish and spread out evenly.  
Sprinkle cup of cheese on top and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.  
Easy and everyone eats it; even my 1 year old!  Oh and it makes great leftovers!  
Thanks for sharing Brittney!!

Have a wonderful Friday evening and an even better weekend!
Right now, I’m setting up camp at the beach, so I know I’m having a great weekend.
It’s okay to be jealous {winks}
If you have a favorite family recipe you’d like to share here at MFTM, just shoot me an email! You don’t have to have a blog to play : )

Sewing Skills {and a WINNER}

It’s another manic Monday around our house…how about yours? 
I’ve been working on tons of projects (at once…because that’s normal), planning my sister’s baby shower (that’s less than 2 weeks away), getting us ready for our family vacation to the beach (this Friday…WAHOO!), and sewing up a storm for all these upcoming baby arrivals. Needless to say, I’ve been busy. But with all wonderful things that I enjoy doing and that make my heart happy. 
With my sewing machine getting lots of use, I’ve been able to brush up on my sewing skills…a bit. I’m not a pro by any means, but I get better and better every time I sew something. Over the weekend I took a 30 min break and decided to sew something for myself.
I know…crazy idea, right? I already knew exactly what to sew. Have you seen the awesome Business Card Holder {tutorial} over at Artsy Fartsy Mama? If not, RUN on over and check it out. Easy to follow, great photos, and you’ll end up with an awesome little card holder for your blog/shop cards. 
Here’s how mine turned out…
I still need to work on my top stitch skills, but I’m super happy with the way it turned out. 
Cute, right? 
Head on over to Lindsay’s so you can make yourself one too.
