Recipe Review #1 for 2012

Hey All,

I have two recipes to tell you about.  Sorry no pictures I forgot to take them.  The first recipe is from Grandma's Vintage Recipes it's a Spinach Casserole I made to take to our family Christmas dinner.  I love spinach and wanted to make something different to take this year.  This yummy spinach has sour cream and onion soup mix in it.  Out of 7 adults only 1 didn't like it but then again he doesn't like spinach to begin with.  The 3 teens liked the spinach but they didn't like the bread topping.  The 4 tweens wouldn't even try it they avoided that dish as if it had poison in it.

I will be making this again but I might try putting french fried onions on the top instead of the bread topping to see if the kids like that any better.  But I thought it was very good just the way it was.

The second one is a chicken sandwich recipe I found over on  I was looking for some crockpot recipes and came across this and had to try it.  Savory Chicken Sandwiches  and let me tell you that word savory should be yum-a-lishous.  I did make one change to the recipe it calls for bone in chicken breast and thighs and to take them out after cooked and shred them and then put the shredded meat back into the pot.  I used a 2.5 lb bag of frozen chicken breast instead and about a half hour before I was ready to serve I took a fork and shredded them right in the pot.  Easy Peasy!

This recipe will be going onto the 2012 menu often.  Everyone loved them and it's a good thing it makes a large batch because we each had 2 of them.  And still had enough leftover for lunch the next day.

If you are wanting something different for dinner both these recipes are worth checking out.

Take Care :)

Mmmmm~ these all sound good Vickie, but I would have loved the spinach casserloe the best. I LOVE greens of any kind.... my hubby is not a big fan of them unfortunately, so I don't fix them very often. He might try them in a casserole though.... hmmmm...
It was so good to hear from you.... Hubby is doing well and I'm finally able to have some time to get on the computer again!
