Sunday, it was great but I need it to be a few hours longer

I've gotten two days worth things done today.  More than I planned to do.  I came home from church and put a roast in the oven and decided to get a few other things fixed for the week.
It made me miss my sweet friend Jennifer and wishing she was near by for once a month cooking.
So, today I hadn't planned it, but made a few meals...It's not a month's worth but it's a start
I only remember having pineapple upside down cake once when I was a little girl at a friends house.  I thought this easy recipe looked like a quick one to try.  It turned out really good!

I had left over roasted chicken and remembered a Chicken a la King recipe I had seen.
 I remember being a little girl and my mother buying the "boil in the bag" version and serving it over toast and loving it.  I don't think I've had it since.  It tastes just like I remembered.

Chicken a la King

1/2 Cup chopped Green pepper
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup flour
1/4 tsp pepper
2 chicken bouillon cubes disovled in
1 cup water
2 cups milk
2 cups chopped cooked chicken
1/2 cup frozen English Peas

Pimientos and mushrooms optional

In a large skillet over med-high heat, cook green pepper (and mushrooms if using) in butter until peppers are crisp-tender.
Wisk flour in.  Add water slowly, stirring constantly.  Con't to stir or wisk and add milk.  Wisk till smooth.  Add peas.  Bring to a boil and con't stirring 1 minute. 

Serve over puff pastry, biscuits, toast or place in freezer bag and freeze or future use.

We also managed to get the little dog groomed today... she was waaaay past due!

oh, now she can see!

Got her nice and clean for the little bit of snow we might get in the morning...

You always make me want to come to your house and eat.

But more than anything, I've always wanted to come over and enjoy the conversation had over one of your amazing from-scratch meals.

I keep wondering how it is that you feel like this real friend who I just haven't gotten to see in a realy long time?

Don't you love the blog world for that? (o:
