Oh my gosh, it has been eons since I last posted. I have been having trouble with my pics, long story, and didnt want to post about our First Family Dinner without pictures, but then I figured it out, so here goes!!
I told you all about how my husband's family had planned to start having monthly family dinners a while back, well we finally scheduled the first one for Friday July 31. The hubs and I arrived a bit early, you see, they have a really nice built in pool and well, he couldnt resist. Turns out everyone else had the same idea because before you know it we were all there! My sister-in-law was busy finishing up her Chicken LAsagne dish when we arrived. My husband being the very very picky eater that he is wished we would have stopped at Wendys on the way. Smile honey, it's delicious!!
Turns out he would have wasted his money at WEndys, he loved the dish and ended up having 2 helpings! We had a GREAT dinner, along with the lasagne, recipe to follow, we had breadsticks and salad from Olive Garden thanks to Scott's sister, and the most yummy corn on the cob, cooked a really different way. My sister in law Becky got this idea from a friend and I have since used it and given it to many others, it is SOOO simple, and totally delicious!! All you do is place the ears of corn still in the shucks right in your oven, on a cookie sheet or right on the rack, no soaking, no nothing, and cook them for 30 minutes at 350. The shucks, although hot come off in one tug and wow is it moist and yummy, give this a try, I swear it is great, and soo darn easy!
Sorry, I always forget to take before pics!
I made a couple of desserts but the star of the show was definitely the Chicken Lasagne!
1 pkg no boil lasagne noodles
1 can cr of mushroom soup
1 can cr of chicken soup
1 cup parmesan cheese
1 cup sour cream
1 cup finely chopped onions
1/2 t garlic powder
1 t pepper
3 cups cooked and chopped chicken
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Blend everything except shredded cheese and noodles
Grease a 9 x 13 pan
Layer as you do regular lasagne
Bake at 350 for 45- 60 minutes, watch it
Let it sit a few minutes before serving, YUM
Open Wide Savanah!!
After dinner it was a quick clean-up and then the kids headed up the street to the local softball/volleyball complex. And it was adult time! We laughed and told stories and laughed the whole evening. What a wonderful evening we all had! We found that it is so fun to get together for no reason other than to enjoy each other's company! I strongly recommend it to everyone!!
This is my husband, far left, and his fun brothers and sisters!
Did I mention that the youngest brother Tony, took a little dip, clothes, wallet, and all??? LOL
The morning after this fun night we had to leave our house at 5 am so we could be at the airport in Dayton, Ohio for our flight to Phoenix, Arizona. I will save our trip for my next post complete with pics, I promise!
Alot has been going on at the Wagner Compound recently! Miss independent, our daughter Nikki, has returned home! How fun! She plans on finishing up her degree in Culinary arts at the local Midwest Culinary Arts Inst. I am thrilled! Our oldest child, Bryan, proposed to his girlfriend at sunrise yesterday on the the beach, and is now engaged! I am so excited and cant wait to hear all the details!!
I am off to get a few things done on my day off!
Now go out and make it a great day and thanks so much for stopping by! Sue
