This is a great casserole.  It tastes delicious and freezes well.  Great to fix for a friend who needs a meal prepared for them.  They can always freeze it and eat it later! I know it has a LOT of cornbread in it but for those Southern girls out there who have cornbread with EV.VER.RY meal – it shouldn’t be a problem =)

1/4 c. chopped onion

1/4 c. celery

1 c. chicken broth

2 – 2 1/2 c. cooked chicken

Last week, I entered the Spring Into Summer blog challenge with my post entitled Blogger Blessings.  I just learned that I WON!!!!

The only other thing I have EVER won in my life was a quilt made by my Granny and her friends in the Quilting Club where I grew up!!! I am SOOOO excited!  I won a blog design done by none other than Darlene Schadt herself! I am so excited that I feel like jumping up and doing a dance – but I won’t.  Instead I will just walk around with this grin on my face all night long!

THANKS SO MUCH Darlene for choosing my post!

I just can’t wait to get my new blog design up and going!  I know it will be fabulous!

But, I cannot do it right now.  I was out of town Friday and Saturday.  Yesterday was church…. I did get to go out to eat with my Breaking Free bible study group to celebrate finishing the study and a few of the blessed me with a sweet gift.  THIS adorable umbrella.d1b2_1_b.jpg  It matches my purse, ya’ll!  And what good Southern girl doesn’t like matching accessories!!!! =)

ANYWAYS –  Today is monday and I have tons of house work to catch up on and right now I cannot post much because my third and youngest daughter just cut her hair with daughter #2’s help.  Seeing as she is never one to be left out of anything (at 2 she talks like her 5 year old sister) and since her sisters cut each other’s hair back in November – it just makes sense that it was her turn now.

I will return when I stop crying………..

Hope you all are having a good Monday.
