Tis the Season of Mums and hot meals!

 I just love fall so much!!  Yesterday, our daughter bought 3 pots of lovely Mums for our yard.  They are so beautiful!
Two lovely pots for the front of the house and........

A Lovely one in Yellow for the back yard by the pond.

I love flowers and Mums are just so happy and bright!

Below is another cool weather easy recipe that is a keeper!  I have made this many times varying the vegetables and with or without meat.  Hope you like this as much as my family does!
As you can see by the yellowed page, I have used this a lot through the past 20 yrs. or so.  The original recipe came in a little booklet included in the pages of a magazine as a Bisquick ad.
It says Impossible Green Bean Pie but I have rarely used Green Beans even though it is good with them!
1. Frozen green beans/spinach/mixed vegetables (your choice) thawed and brought to boil, then drained well.
2. 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
3. 1 1/2 C. of milk
4. 3/4 cup Bisquick or Jiffy mix
5. 3 eggs
6. 1 tsp. salt (or less to taste)
7. 1/4 tsp pepper
Optional:  1 can of mushroom stems and pieces or sometimes I brown Hamburger meat and add that.  1/2 C onions.
Heat the oven to 400 degrees.  Grease a 10" pie plate.  Cook green bean (thawed) for 5 minutes uncovered.  Drain.  Mix beans (or any of the above options) mushrooms, onion, and cheese in plate.  Beat remaining ingredients until smooth.  (1 minute with hand mixer or 15 seconds in blender).  Pour into plate. Give a little stir with a fork to blend and bake until a knife inserted between center and edge comes out clean.  30-40 minutes.  Let cool 5 minutes and serve!  Delicious!  A whole meal in a pie plate!  yields 6-8 servings.  Slice as pie.
  Let me know how you like this one.  It is quick and once you get used to making it with your own favorite ingredients, you will be making it all the time.
  I use frozen mixed vegetables most often: corn/carrot mix.

I have tried a few of the impossible Pies, but not this one. And it looks good! Guess what we had for dinner tonight? Your chicken stew again, with leftovers in the fridge for tomorrow! I wish I could keep pots of mums like that in the fall! I tried two pots on the front porch once, and they promptly died. Not enough sun, I'm thinking.

OMG...your house is so cute! Those mums are the perfect touch. That recipe sounds wonderful, but we're trying to do low cholesterol now...darn.

Wow--that sounds delicious Kerrie! I love mums too! I'm sorry to hear about your husband's fight with cancer. Mine had cancer too, but he was very young and has been cancer free for 18 years now. He was 34 when he got testicular cancer.

I'm so glad you both are trusting in the Lord to see you through this and that things are going so well.

Thanks for visiting my music blog! I'm so pleased. :o) I don't post very often there...most of the time I post at Comin' Home. It's www.thehomemakingarts.blogspot.com

I didn't realize you had commented or I would have visited a long time ago. :o)
