Whew................ where did the summer go? My summer has been super busy and has flown by. I have now used up all my summer vacation time and am looking forward to the fall and my Thanksgiving week vacation. Cally was home from Portsmouth for the summer. She again worked at Crown Mini Mart to make some money for the upcoming school year rent expenses. Billy again
worked at Scioto Country Club during the summer (and when he can while going to school) so he also can save money for his rent expenses this coming year. Billy continued to rehab his ACL and is doing wonderful! He is back to playing golf so he did get to enjoy his golf game some this summer.

Cally is a Junior this year at Shawnee State and is glad to be back at school and being able to work in the preschool where she is a teacher's assistant. She sure did miss the kids over the summer! Cally is in the same apartment this year but she has a new roommate, Laynee.

I think I have caught you up on the events of my wonderful summer. Hopefully I will be able to visit here more often now. Bill and I are a little busy at the moment planning a 50th Wedding Anniversary for my In-Laws. Today I have baked a cake so I can practice my decorating skills for their wedding cake. I will post pictures later.
Now for the Chicken Stuffing recipe. This is a family favorite in my house. I know my mom started me making this recipe but not sure where the recipe came from. It is pretty much stuffing with a layer of chicken salad in between then topped with a soup mixture and later topped with cheddar cheese.....oh it is so good!! A real comfort food.
Chicken Stuffing Casserole
1 14oz Stuffing ( I use Brownberry Herb Seasoned)
2 C chicken broth
mix together and divide in half, Put half in greased 9x13 pan
Add next layer:
1 pound cooked and shredded chicken
1/2 C Mayo or more if needed to coat the chicken
1/2 t onion powder
salt and pepper to taste
Then top the chicken layer with the remaining stuffing mixture
Add together and pour over the top of the casserole:
1/2 C milk
1 can cream mushroom soup
1 can cream chicken soup
The original recipe said to refrigerate over night and bake the next day however I make mine up and bake it right away.
Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes and then remove from oven and top with 2 C Shredded Cheddar Cheese and return to the oven to melt the cheese.
