Chicken Stuffing Casserole

One of my boys loves stuffing so I decided to make a casserole for him last night.  He told me that it smelled so good that he just wanted to stuff his face right in it.  I'll take that as a compliment.

1 box of chicken stuffing (prepared as on box)
1 can of cream of chicken soup (undiluted)
1 can of Costco chicken (drained)
Tiny bit of milk if needed

Mix the prepared stuffing, soup and chicken together and add a little milk if it looks too dry.  Bake for 20-30 minutes until warmed all the way through.

Next time I make this, I will probably add sauteed diced celery, onions, and other veggies but I was in a hurry last night and this sufficed.  This would be something easy for the kids to make at college or on missions.

Lion House Banana Bread

I got this recipe from a friend of a friend and made it last night - YUMMO!  The only thing I need to figure out is exactly how long to bake it since I think I slightly overcooked it.  This is a picture of how the bread is supposed to look.  My bread looked darker.

This recipe made 2 large loaves of bread and 5 tiny ones.

6 large very ripe bananas or 8 medium ones
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup oil (I used canola)
4 cups flour
1 t baking soda
2 t salt (I left this out because we are watching salt intake)
2 t baking powder
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (I left these out because we don't like nuts in banana bread)

Mix bananas, eggs, sugar and oil together.  Add flour, baking soda, and baking powder and mix.  Don't overmix.

Bake at 325 degrees for 45-50 minutes (this was too long of a bake time in my glass bread pans, adjust your bake time depending on your oven, bakeware, altitude, etc.).
