Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole. It's good and extremely hardy--a perfect meal for winter--but also good in the summer too. I would like to make it again and see how it freezes.
6 slices of day-old bread, cut into cubes
4 tbsp. butter, melted
Garlic powder, salt, basil, oregano, and Parmesan cheese, to taste (start small and add as needed-I added the flavors, then dipped a piece of bread in the butter to taste it, adjusting as necessary)
Here are the instructions. Are you ready? Here we go!
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
Cut bread into cubes. Put the cubed bread into a medium-sized bowl.
|Such cute little cubes!|
Mix the butter and seasonings until smooth in a small bowl, then pour into the bowl with bread cubes. Toss bread cubes and butter mix to coat evenly.
Spread the bread cubes in a single row on a baking sheet lined with parchment.
Bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes or so, checking and stirring the bread every 15 minutes, until the bread is crunchy and golden brown. Yum!
Milestones are great. They can show an accomplishment, or progress, or an end to a lot of hard work. I love milestones--they give me something to look forward to and work hard to accomplish. Milestones are a great time to give God the glory and praise for all He has done, because we accomplish nothing on our own, but only by God's grace. The Bible is full of Scripture that tell us to rejoice in the Lord (Philippians 4:4-"Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!"), so why not give Him praise and glory for all things, big and small? I will praise the Lord for this milestone, and everything else in my life, both good and bad. Will you?
