Recipe: Zucchini Casserole

Zucchini Casserole

Preheat oven 350 degrees

6 cups sliced zucchini
1 onion, sliced
1 cup carrots, sliced
1 cup sour cream
1 can cream of chicken soup (or use homemade)
1 box Stove Top Stuffing Mix
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese (optional) - I didn't use

Slice vegetables and place in a large pot filled with water.
Bring water (with vegetables to a boil).
Let boil for 3 - 5 minutes until the zucchini looks cooked and then remove from heat.
Drain vegetables.
Season vegetables with salt and pepper.
Set aside

Mix together the sour cream and the cream of chicken soup.

Melt the butter and pour on the top of the Stove Top Stuffing mix. Combine until the stuffing is moist.

In a 9 x 13 pan, pour 1/2 of the stuffing mix on the bottom of the pan.

Pour 1/2 of the drained vegetables on top of the stuffing.

Spread 1/2 of the sour cream and soup mixture on top of the vegetables.

Place the rest of the vegetables on top of the soup.

Spread the rest of the soup over the second layer of vegetables.

Sprinkle the remaining stuffing mix on top of the soup.

(If you choose, sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top of the Stuffing Mix - I didn't)

Bake casserole at 350 degrees for 30 - 35 minutes or until soup begins to bubble and stuffing mix is browned.  
This is such a yummy casseroles. It is one of our favorite.

When I make a casserole, I freeze half of the casserole for a later meal. Our family is too small for regular size casseroles. This freezes great and is a great freezer meal to pull out on busy days. I don't bake the one I am putting in the freezer until I pull it out and then I bake it longer or let it defrost first.

Wayback Wednesday - Jason and Sharon Childhood

These are the childhood pictures displayed on the entry table to the wedding of Jason and Sharon.

Sharon didn't have very many pictures from her youth and not very many of them with a smile. We came up with the best one's we could find. She didn't have a great childhood and ended up in foster care - so we were lucky to get some pictures. Now she's part of our family for a happily every after with LOTS of smiling pictures in her future.  :-D.

Invitation to Homecoming 2011

During all the wedding preparations, spaghetti feed, cross country meet, family and friends,
Brady was working on his invitation to ask Kara to the Homecoming dance.
It all started with a box of kisses.
A picture of Brady was needed like this.
You can see more of the back yard set up for the wedding in this picture.

Brady came up with all of this on his own. He is VERY creative!
Brady put the picture above on the front of a card with this letter inside of the folded card:

Brady went to school early Monday morning to set up the invitation for Kara. Here is the puzzle:
A few days later Kara came over with her answer. She handed this to Brady when he answered the door.
Kara getting ready to hand the answer to Brady.
Brady outside the door (wearing his nerd glasses *grin).
He set out and a quest to FIND the answer.
Hmmmmm I wonder where it could be.
Still looking around the neighborhood.
Yea! He spies something perched on the stairs at a nearby building.
Danielle or is it a cat?
Her cat tag said "YES".
What a cute kitty.

Brady's friends are a hoot!
A close up!
Danielle getting into character.
She definitely has this part of a "cat" down.

Brady is a lucky guy.

Brady went to the homecoming game where Meridian won Rocky Mountain High School 51 to 41. Here is Brady's comment on facebook:

First football game I have ever been to-- HOMECOMING! Meridian vs Rocky. We won! I think when we were over 10 points ahead at the end, Rocky kinda gave up. It's the first Homecoming Game that Meridian has won in 4 years, and my date, Kara was announced homecoming queen! I had a lot more fun then I expected to have. GO WARRIORS!

 Queen Kara
 King and Queen
After the winning victory of the game, they burned an "M". Goooo Warriors!

Brady went to the Homecoming dance with the Homecoming QUEEN. Very cool!
