HOT CHICKEN SALAD...NEW HOLIDAY DECOR


It's beginning to look alot like
Christmas


Miss M is a step ahead....
she began her decorating
with these little precious woodland creatures!
Do I love them?
Of course......

Winter has shown her cold colors here in Texas!


It has been gray, cold and rainy for about four days now. 
I like that....
it's better weather for decorating, don't you agree?


I love seeing the Christmas mug collections from everyone!
I have two of these little darlings and just discovered
a little pitcher to match...just may have to pick that one up!
Time to put away the harvest candles 
and
exchange them with pine and fresh balsam!



Oh yes...
here's the new Santa!
I fell in love with him while shopping with Miss M and Jenn!


I think we are all loving that touch of tartan plaid!


The little kitchen tree is up and decorated....
that's about it for today!
It's progress....


Now, how about a holiday movie!


I think nothing of featuring this simple casserole at the fanciest of dinners!
I just love this dish!
In many ways, this is the quintessential Southern casserole.
Oh how often I have had this served alongside
congealed salads, hot rolls and ice tea!

    1. Hi JMD....the recipe calls for soda crackers (saltines). I am sure you could use breadcrumbs or Ritz crackers if you wish!
