For whatever reason, this little poem perhaps, I always think of winds in the month of March and also, I refer to it as "my Mom's month". Mom would have been 96 on the 13th of March - it was a week ago today and I decided to live that day to her honor. Just a little deal or pact I made with myself but I truly do think about her so often this month. Two cousins mentioned Mom to me within days of each-other - well, one, shared this picture below with me. Mom, or, Naomi, must've been in her early 20s ... I love her smile and the spirit of fun that shines through. I really wonder how Martha got ahold of this photo! I don't think I'd ever seen it.
stew a chicken (Mom did a whole one, I sometimes just do breast meat)
2 cups uncooked rice (can boil it in the chicken broth)
chop onion (whole if small or 1/2 if large) and
chop 2 stalks celery (or to taste) fry it up until clear
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 jar Cheese Whiz
2 boxes of frozen chopped broccoli - lightly cooked
Combine de-boned chicken and all other ingredients in a large bowl, mix thoroughly and place in a 13/9 casserole dish - top with grated cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until heated through!
