That is a loooooonnnnnnggggg time! And while I put up some decorations...
Last week was my birthday and I began celebrating a little early (okay...maybe a LOT early)! One of my favorite (and extremely altered) Pampered Chef recipes had been on my mind so I just had to make it along with a fabulous Strawberry Almond Spinach Salad that a friend of mine had shared with me several years back. They were so yummy I thought I would share them here! Seriously super easy and a quick meal for those busy fall days! Plus the variety you can do with this is endless! I'm thinking about trying a breakfast one for Christmas!
2 cans crescent rolls (I think Pillsbury gives the best results)
2 regular size cans (or one large) white meat chicken (drained)
1 can Ro*Tel tomatoes (buy the diced ones) (drained)
1 can Cream of Chicken & Mushroom Soup
3/4 to 1 cup grated Gruyere cheese
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste.
Lightly spray a large round cake pan (I use the round Pampered Chef Stone Baker Pan but I don't see why any large round wouldn't work...it just needs sides on it). Unroll one can of crescent rolls and place the triangles around the edges of the pan forming a circle with the pointed sides hanging off of the edges onto the counter. Unroll the second can of rolls and place them in the exact same direction as the other ones but in-between each of the previous ones . The overlapping bottom edges make a donut shaped bottom to the dish (you know...with a hole in the middle as in the picture above). Next, mix the remaining ingredients together and scoop into bottom of crescent ring. Finally, take each point of the crescent rolls and gently stretch them up and over the top of the filling tucking the point underneath the edge of the center of the bottom. Place in the oven and bake at 400 degrees until brown and bubbly. For me, that is 20 to 30 minutes!

Mix together and enjoy! Yum!
Having a chef for a son is really nice on your birthday! These are what he blessed me with that morning! These Maple Nut Bars are the exact recipe found here but dipped in nuts after the icing is applied. WOW! They made the perfect breakfast! My husband also made a fabulous dessert table for the family but I will share those recipes another time...
Until next time...Blessings and Happy Harvesting!!!
