Ham Recipe

I recently bought a ham and cooked it in the crock pot by adding pineapple and brown sugar to season it.

We ate some of the leftovers, but still have some. I chopped it up and today I am making a Ham & Cheese Casserole. I tried to find the recipe online I use, but could not. I had to call my mom to ask how to make it again. This time I am recording the recipe on my blog until I can make my recipe book.

Ham & Cheese Casserole

2 cups chopped ham
2 cups velvetta cheese
2 cups cooked rice
2 cups Medium White Sauce**

After preparing the white sauce, combine all ingredients. Place in 9x13 pan. Cook at 350 for about 20 minutes.

I decided to prepare this casserole and freeze half before cooking. I will update you on how it turns out.

**I made a few changes to how the white sauce was prepared. Instead of adding all the milk at once, I added it a little at a time combining it a little along.

Chicken Recipe

Thought I would share a few things I have tried recently.

Over the weekend I make Barbecue Chicken Packets. They were pretty good, but I am not sure if we like them well enough to have them again.

We had leftovers, I hated to waste them. I decided to make Chicken Fried Rice and use the rest of the barbecue chicken. The fried rice had a little bit of a barbecue taste, but overall was still good. I make my Chicken Fried Rice using a seasoning packet I buy at Kroger or Walmart. I put chicken, rice, scrambled eggs, peas & carrots in mine. The kids don't like it much, but they pick out what they like.
