I actually grabbed this kit to create something completely different. It never fails to amaze me when that happens. But sometimes the creativity just takes over and does it's own thing. Listen to Your Heart is actually a pretty small kit, but it packs some great punch. I think it would even be fun to print some of this stuff and cut it out to pout in my art journal. Anyway...
For April my Designer Partner at Ginger Scraps has been Crisdam Designs. Sick Day is the first kit I've worked with and I hope that I'll find the time to work with at least a couple more. Please take a moment to stop by her shop HERE and take a look at all the amazing stuffies Isabel (of Crisdam Designs) has to offer.
Have you seen the newest Buffet over at GingerScraps? Oh my word, the girls there have truly out done themselves, WOW! There are so many fantastic pieces to this collection and you can get them all on the cheap, currently just $1.00 for any item on the buffet!
Have you seen the new Enchilada of Awesomeness available at SherrieJD's store? If not and if you're a fan of OZ you seriously need to check this out! Sherrie has broken this collection down into multiple smaller kits as well as bundled the whole deal at a deep discount, so you can get exactly what you want.
I'm not really very good at just throwing stuff together so when this turned out SO good I decided I'd better write it down so maybe I could make it again sometime. Oh! And my husband is NOT into casseroles so please don't tell him that is what this is LOL... he had me put his serving in a tortilla shell and put sour cream on it!
I'm sorry I don't have a picture, this is the first recipe I've ever made on my own and written down, I had no idea it would taste good. The next time I make it I will definitely get a picture and come back and edit this post.
So... here we go!
1 cup uncooked wild rice cooked according to directions on package
2-3 chicken breasts cooked and cubed
(I used 6 tenderloins, cooked in about 1/2 tbsp butter with Weber Roasted Garlic and Herb Seasoning)
1 can cream or broccoli
1 block of cream cheese
1/2 red bell pepper
I cooked up my rice according to the directions on the package. While the rice was cooking I cooked up my chicken tenders and cubed them up. Once the chicken was done cooking I added the diced red pepper and cream cheese so it could start melting in. Once the cream cheese was melted in I added the rice and can of cream of broccoli and stirred until well combined. Next I added everything to a glass baking dish and covered it in shredded cheese (probably about 2 cups, I didn't measure). Bake at 350° for 15 minutes.
The moment I saw this kit I knew I had to have it. I can definitely see lots of great stuff coming from this extremely versatile kit. Sure, it's great for goofy self portraits but it's also great for any number of other LO's as well. Just look how I used it!
I never fail to be amazed by the talent that is Tangie Baxter. Every time I create a new page with her designs I feel a tremendous amount of pride to be a part of her Creative Team. One of Tangie's most recent projects that I worked with is You Are Magnificent! (part of the Shine Project at SBG). This is an amazing collection put together by a small group of girls over at SBG (Captivated Visions, Rosey Posey and Tangie Baxter) who hope to inspire you to... Shine, from within. I hope you'll check it out.
