{Casserole, kids plus a find!}

I made my very first casserole and it was a big hit with absolutely no left overs! I got a great deal on some canned ham and needed a recipe to use it up in. I combined 2 recipes to fit the ingredients I had on hand. Below is the recipe.

Ham and Broccoli Casserole


16 oz macaroni noodles
2 cups sour cream
1 canned ham (diced)
1 medium onion sliced
4 TBSP butter
1 can cream of broccoli soup
1 frozen package of broccoli
3 cups milk
3 slices of bread (crumbled)
2 cups shredded cheese
3 medium carrots (shredded)

Directions: Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor crumble the bread. In a large saute pan melt the butter and then add the bread crumbs stirring until nicely toasted. Place in a separate bowl to cool while you compose the rest of the ingredients.  boil water and cook the macaroni as directed on the package. In a large bowl add the cooked pasta, diced ham, sliced onion, can of broccoli soup, frozen broccoli, shredded cheese, sour cream and shredded carrots. Mix until well combined. Place mixture into a large casserole dish and cover with the bread crumbs. Place in oven for 30-45 minuets until bubbly and hot.

Let set on counter for 15 min before serving so as not to burn your tongue/mouth when eating and it will allow the hot liquid to soak into the pasta.

While waiting for one of hubby's appointments to be done I took the kids to a park and they just had a blast. Myrna who for the longest time was afraid of slides couldn't get enough of them on this trip. I love this particular park because it is well shaded except for the swings.

When I was using up a $20 gift card at a local thrift store, by the way who knew $20 would be hard to spend at a thrift store where most items are $2 and under in price! I came across this cute little "old woman who live in the shoe" light for $1.65.

I mean how cute is this little boot house with kids and mouse crawling in it! See the little boy at the bottom of the boot coming out by the sole. On the bottom of the boot it says Carolie 1975. I just adore it!
