breakfast quiche

Jan 30, 2011 by

i tried to think of a food related to 100 for this 100th post.  100 grand cookies.  something shaped as 100.  100 calorie servings.  i wasn’t feeling it.  so i decided a site revamp would be a lot more fun than foods related to 100.  well, fun for me to pick out what i wanted, and a lot of work for tom to make it happen.  thanks, babe! i also realized last weekend that i had not blogged about this dish.  how have i not blogged about quiche?!  this is one of those recipes that was the reason that i created shoebox.  when you try it, you have to have the recipe for it…  and then i say: “visit my blog!” so, without any more delay, here is the perfect recipe for my 100th...

salsa chicken rice casserole

Feb 25, 2010 by

the jury is still out on this dish.  tom likes it.  i like it.  i think that more could be added to it to give it some “oomph”.  next time, i may cut down on the amount of rice.  or grill the chicken and saute the vegetables in the pan with the chicken.  but all in all it is pretty tasty.  it has even passed the leftover test! 1 1/3 c uncooked white rice 2 2/3 c water 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves 3 c shredded cheese (i had to cut back from the original recipe… shocker!) 1 10.75 oz. can condensed cream of chicken soup 1 10.75 oz. can condensed cream of mushroom soup 1 onion, chopped 1 red pepper, chopped 1 1/2 c mild salsa place rice and water in a...
