Is it raining there?  It's raining here and it's been raining for days.  It's sorta nice when you're stuck inside anyway, but when you have a fun movie night planned, it stinks.  Big time.  It's Fall all of a sudden.  One day it was Summer, the next day, Fall.  The cooler weather makes me want comfort food and I'm getting slightly sick of all our regular casseroles so I searched for something new.  I found Chicken Spectacular...and spectacular it is.  I found the original recipe on All Recipes, then read in the comments that it's similar to a recipe by Paula Deen.  I looked at her recipe and saw the differences; onion, cheese and big surprise, butter.  I made Paula's.  It was really good, a really good meal on a cold, wet day.  The only thing I did differently was use Cream of Mushroom instead of Cream of Celery because it's what I had and I'm not extremely fond of Cream of Celery.  Next time I make it I'll use half mayo/half sour cream instead of the full cup of mayo, and add some cracker crumbs to the top for more crunch.

Hate to rub it in but I haven't seen rain since June. It's 100 degrees here. McKenna got invited to go swimming and Morgan ran through the sprinklers yesterday. But when you start posting pictures of fall leaves and cider mills and pumpkin patches...I'm gonna be in pain.

Anna. Your food, I'm sure not only tastes wonderful, but you have a knack at making everything look so picture perfect! Thank you for folding the laundry today. It helped me SO MUCH.
