I took this photo yesterday from the opposite end of town.
As far as your eye can see down the road towards the mountains is where our house is.
I took these pictures while delivery Christmas cookies all over town Tuesday...
I've decided I'm going to walk down to this Catholic church and go inside one day soon. I want to see the inside of the sanctuary. This little church has been here since the beginning of this little town. You can see it in old photos. I hope it doesn't disappoint.
Speaking of old places...the lady that used to live in my house still comes to town for the Homemakers Club meetings. I asked her if she had any old photos of our house she would share with me. I saw her Tuesday and she said she had them ready for me, but she's going to have to mail them because she forgot to bring them. I'm SO EXCITED to see them. I'm also going to the historical society to see what info or photos they may have.
After delivering cookies with the club ladies, we all went to eat lunch at a little restaurant here in town. I caught some movement in my peripheral vision out the window while sitting there. It was two deer just sauntering down the parking lot. I love that about this place. Very Northern Exposure-ish living here. (Someone mentioned that in a comment not long ago. I always think about that show since living here too.)
Okay, so about that Holiday-Worthy Recipe...
It really is!
CHEESY CHICKEN AND WILD RICE CASSEROLE
I made the two rices and combined them and baked and cut up the chicken breasts the day before.
I didn't want to be in the kitchen forever and this definitely made it quicker to put together today. So glad I did that.
All I had to do today was chop and saute the veggies...
Add the cooked chicken...
Add the rices...
Make the cheese sauce...
And mix it all together in a baking pan.
Almost ready for baking...
Oops, I forgot to add the cheese to the top.
(I will skip this step next time. The cheese sauce is plenty!)
Holy Holiday Yum!
I was totally distracted and reading Instagram or something or other on my phone and when I looked down at my lap, this is what I saw. Can you tell what it is?
