Home Is Where My Story Begins

Wild Rice, Chicken, and Shrimp Casserole and Home and Family Friday

This has always been one of my favorite casseroles.  Surprisingly, my kids love it too.

Wash a half pound of salad shrimp and put it into a big bowl.

Cook one box of wild rice and set aside.

Add one can of cream of chicken soup to the shrimp.  Chop a handful of parsley and a few other veggies to throw in the mix.  I happened to have red and yellow peppers today, so that’s what went into the casserole.  Sometimes I’ll use carrots, celery, or green onions.  There is no science to this casserole, just use what you like to eat.  I also add about 1-2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese, 1 tbsp of lemon juice, and 1/2 tsp ground mustard.

Before I leave for work in the morning, I like to put a whole chicken in the crockpot with a little water and garlic salt.  By the time I walk in the door, dinner is close to being ready.  In a pinch, one of those pre-cooked chickens from the grocery store works well too. I use all of the chicken, which is usually about 2 cups.

Mix it all up and throw it into the baking dish.  Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. A loaf of bread and a salad is all you need to finish off the meal.  It looks like a fancy dinner, but the reality is, I only had to cook a box of rice and chop veggies for about 3 minutes.  Super easy!

We’re ready for Home and Family Friday.  What have you been up to this week?  We love to see craft projects, recipes, furniture make-overs, and holiday ideas.  I’d love it if you’d grab my button and become a follower!

This may be the last Home and Family Friday.  Inlinks and Linky Tools are both moving to subscriptions.  Since I don’t make any money from this blog, I’m not really interested in paying for this service.  I don’t know if there are other free services out there.  This will be the last linky party, until I find a new linky service. Thanks for understanding.
