Wild rice casserole

img_0250I found a new to me blog called iowagirleats.com , she is gluten free and has wonderful recipes. This is one of the them and its really good! It has dried cranberries, onion, celery diced, wild rice mix(I used Lundberg’s wild rice mix), chicken broth, sliced almonds and bacon crumbled! What could be wrong on this level! It has bacon!!! Insert smiley face!!!:)

This small container is all that is left of a 9 x 13 pan. I sent some home with Erika and Trevor so they could enjoy it another day with some turkey! Blessings and thanks for reading this blog!


New Tree

img_0245Well, I bought us a new pre-lit Christmas tree at Hobby Lobby Friday evening, I worked most of the day and came home to get youngest granddaughter Kora to go with me to Rice Lake shopping. We had fun and decided this was the nicest looking tree plus I had been looking for a couple of weeks, I thought this was the best deal out there! I took the floor model as that was it, all the rest were gone for that style! We got a few other things, like Christmas cards and stamps. Snowflakes for Kora to paint and glitter!

So do you have an artificial tree or real, I would prefer real, but the mess is too much anymore!

We celebrated Thanksgiving last night with part of the family, but we ate enough for those who weren’t there! Erika made 2 desserts that are vegan, dairy free and gluten free. Apple pie muffins with buttercream frosting(made with out butter) and fudgy brownies! So good! Thank you Erika!!!! I made a wild rice stuffing that is gluten and dairy free, I like it better room temperature or cold better than hot. That’s a keeper! Erika is mostly gluten free and dairy free, this is making her feel better and building her immune system!

Well that’s all from here, blessings and thank you for reading this blog!
