Cheesy Chicken Casserole

It's not often that I venture to create supper without a recipe, and even more rare is when it is edible. That said, I think I hit upon something tonight.

3 - 4 large chicken breasts, cubed
1 can Campbell's condensed cream of chicken soup
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 (and some) cup cheddar cheese
dash of Worcestershire sauce
2 tbs dijon mustard
1/8 cup diced onion and celery
2 tbs butter
1 Stove Top microwavable "Quick Cup"

In a skillet, cook the chicken until white, or slightly browned. Put in a greased 8x8 glass baking dish.

After chicken is cooked, add butter and saute onions and celery until tender.

In a bowl, mix soup, milk, sour cream, cheese, worcestershire, mustard, celery and onions. Mix until blended.

Pour over chicken cubes.

Prepare "quick cup" as directed and spoon over chicken and soup mixture.

Bake for 15 - 20 minutes at 375.

Remove and sprinkle with remaining cheese (the plus some) and bake until cheese is melted.

Future possibilities -- add bacon. (everything is better with bacon) or ham.

Unto the Hills

This is a true classic by a true man of God.

In a world where authors seem to "hit or miss," Billy Graham stays right on target. Whether it is one of his early books, or a more recent one, they all seem to rise to standard that few evangelists seem able to aspire to.

Because this is a devotional, I obviously did not read the whole thing before writing the review. However, I will be reading it daily for the foreseeable future.

It is simple to read, and easy to understand, yet with a few minutes of prayer and meditation, it can take the reader so much deeper than that. I'm not a huge fan of "devotional" type of books, but this one I have enjoyed -- years ago as a young college student, and again now as it is being reprinted.

This book is good for any Christian wanting a closer walk with God, and it makes an excellent gift as well.
