Snowy Day

  Well I has been an uneventful day.  We received about 8 inches of snow in yesterdays storm.  We woke up to a winter wonder land!  And to school being 2 hours late.  The daughter reeeaaallly wanted them to call off school today, but no such luck.  Maybe tomorrow.  We are suppose to get another storm with wind and wind chills in the -20 range.  Have to love living in North Dakota. 
  It is very quite in the house tonight the hubby is working late and the daughter is doing homework in her room.  Seems odd that one or the other isn't blasting the TV or their iPod.  I think I could like this, but now my mind is racing to the million and one things I should be doing, i.e. working in the craft room, doing laundry, putting away laundry.  Oh yeah that's right, I am still recovering so I can't do those things.  Fine by me!
  I did try a new recipe tonight.  It is Chicken Taco Casserole from Six Sisters blog.  The recipe is as follows:

Chicken Taco Casserole
1 (10 oz) bag tortilla chips
2 (10.25 oz) cans cream of chicken soup
1 1/2 cup sour cream
1 (14oz) can diced tomatoes and green chilies (Ro-tel)
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (1oz) packet taco seasoning
3 cups chicken, cooked and shredded
2 cups cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease a 9x13-inch pan. 
In a large bowl, combine the chicken soup, sour cream, Ro-tel, black beans, taco seasoning, and chicken.  Set aside.
Crush chips and spread half of them on the bottom of the pan.
Spread half of the chicken mixture over the tortillas.  Top with 1 cup of cheese.  Repeat layers.
Bake for 30 minutes, until bubbly and cheese is starting to brown.

It turned out great.  Everyone loved it.  I guess this recipe is a keeper!

  Well my help is  being asked for with homework.  You know I actually like to be asked to help with 7th grade homework.  It makes me feel like I remember something I was taught so long ago.  I like it even more, when the daughter gets a good grade on the homework I helped her with.  HAHA!

Love to all,    Sara
