Kitchen Deal of the Week

23 Jan

Hey guys, if you are kitchen enthusiastic like myself, you should really take advantage of this deal I found at Williams-Sonoma.com.  I just got done ordering one for my kitchen (wedding gift cards were used) and wanted to pass along the savings to you!

 

KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer, Metallic Chrome

This mixer is one sale from $299 and is now only $228  (the prices may vary depending on which color you want).  Plus, you get a rebate.  If you buy this mixer before March 26th, you will get a $30 Williams Sonoma gift card mailed to you.  So basically you are only spending $200 on this very awesome mixer!  I had to order mine online, but if you can make it into a store, you wont have to fork over money for shipping!

Saturday was uneventful but we got lots done.  We bought a carpet cleaner and cleaned all the carpet in our house and I am now addicted to it!  We last had our carpet cleaned about 1 year ago.  Needless to say, we managed to remove lots of hidden dirt!  Fun Saturday huh?

While cleaning the carpets, we also cleaned the house and did some much needed laundry.

Quincy also had his second bath!  He was too big this time to fit into he utility sink in the laundry room, so we had to move his bath to the tub/shower.  He was not a happy puppy!  But once he dried off, I think he felt super clean, not to mention he now has an ultra fluffy coat!  : )

 

Chicken Green Bean Casserole

Ingredients

  • 4 Chicken Breast Cooked (shredded or chopped)
  • 1 Sleeve Saltine Crackers (crushed)
  • 2 cups of Sharp Cheddar Cheese (shredded)
  • 1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 3/4 cup Chicken Broth
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 2 Can French Cut Style Green Beans
  • 1/4 cup Butter (melted- we used Earth Balance since that’s what we had on hand)
  • Crushed Almonds (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  In a small sauce pan, add the butter and keep on a low heat until it has melted.  In another pan, combine the can of cream of chicken soup, chicken broth and onion powder.  Heat the mixture while stirring until it is just about to boil.  In an 9×13 Pyrex pan, spread the drained green beans.  Next, add a layer of the chicken using approximately 1/2 the chicken.  Next, add a layer of crushed saltines about 3/4 cup then add a layer of cheese using about 1 cup.  Add another chicken layer and top followed by pouring the broth mixture on the casserole.  Add the rest of the crushed crackers, then the cheese.  Pour the melted butter on top of the casserole followed by the crushed almonds.  Bake for 50 –60 minutes.  Make sure the cheese is starting to brown.  Let cool 5-10 minutes, serve and enjoy!

Okay, I’m off to plan my new workout routine!  I want an amazing 6 pack by mid March!  Vegas baby!  Then the rest of my day will be finishing cleaning and watching some football with friends!  : )
