Tummy Fillin Food

If I have learned anything in traveling around the country. Good home cooking, is the same no matter where you live. Families like quick and easy, tummy filling foods.

In the south there are some things that always need to be in the pantry. Karen-Baking Soda At Bake My Day had us all show our pantries in Take a Peak. If you were to peak around in my pantry you would always find a few cans of cream of mushroom soup, mayonnaise, rice, and some crackers...the basics for a good meal.

There are endless things that you can make with these ingredients. This is a family favorite a chicken curry casserole. Serve it with a big salad and some hot bread. Nothing fancy...Just good home cookin!
Curried Chicken & Rice Casserole
1 6oz pkg long grain and wild rice
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped broccoli
2Tbs butter
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 c sour cream
1/3 cup dry white wine
1/2 tsp curry powder
2 cups cubed cooked chicken or turkey
Preheat oven to 350.
Cook rice according to directions. Saute onion and celery in the butter until tender. combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Turn into a 2 qt casserole or 12x7 buttered baking dish. Bake uncovered for 35-40 minutes.
Y'all enjoy!

I am such a fan of soup-cookery - it's the best, and I've got a couple of cans of cream of mushroom in my pantry right now waiting to transform a casserole!

Hmm, looking good. Just the right meal after having mopped the house for the umpteenth time. (Bathroom rebuilding stress getting to me)
