Reading: I finished the management book I was reading and passed my test this morning (91%). 6 down and 4 to go on the road to that designation (more letters behind my name). Living History is interesting enough. I have read about Hillary's childhood, high school years and she is now in college (just got an internship in DC).
Eating: New recipe last night: Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole. I found it on the Lutherans On-line site. Very easy to prepare, though you have to think ahead because it bakes for a long time (1 hour and 45 minutes). In a casserole pan (I used a 9x13), place 4 large chicken breasts. Cover with 4 slices of ham (deli sliced) and then 4 slices of Swiss cheese. Stir together 1 can cream of chicken soup and 1/2 C. water and pour over chicken. Melt 1/2 C. (1 stick) butter or margerine (the recipe said "oleo"!). Mix melted butter with 2 C. (1 package) Stove Top Stuffing. Spread stuffing over chicken. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the package of seasoning mix from the stuffing (though I discovered Stove Top is now "1 step" so the seasoning is already in the stuffing part). Cover and bake at 325 for 1 hour. Remove cover and bake for 45 minutes more. Eric rated it, "I would request it again, maybe even on a Sunday," though he thought the cheese should be added later because it was hard to tell it was even there. I thought it was good and would make it again.
Gardening: Not much new here. My flowers in pots in the front are looking a little dry (yes, I have been watering them, thank you very much) so I may trim them back and see what they do. Everything is blooming very nicely though, even the thistle back behind the fence (gotta chop that baby down one of these days).
