Frugal Friday With Marsha ----Leftover Casserole (linky party included)

This week's frugal recipe that I am sharing, I call Leftover Casserole.

I call this Leftover Meat Casserole because I use about any leftover meat to make it. It doesn’t matter what type of meat I put in it, everyone loves it! In the photos below it’s made with chicken. The chicken wasn’t leftover, but bought intentionally for the casserole. It’s usually turkey or ham that I use from leftovers. :)

Any type of pasta
any leftover meats (ham, chicken, turkey, etc)
veggie, canned or frozen, if desired (our favorite is broccoli or the California Mix of frozen veggies)
shredded cheese
white, or cheese sauce

White sauce recipe:
1/4 cup margarine or butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups of milk

Melt the margarine in a small saucepan. Gradually add the flour and mix until smooth. Pour in the milk a little at a time to keep it smooth. On low heat, continue to stir the sauce until it starts to thicken. If you choose to, add shredded cheese to your liking.

Cook your choice of pasta according to the package directions.
Layer the meat and pasta in a baking dish—-also the veggies if you are putting them in.
Pour the white/cheese sauce over the top. Mix just a bit to get the sauce on everything.
Add shredded cheese on the top.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes or until the cheese on top is how you like it.

Eat and savor the flavor!

Writer's Unite Link Up 9/18/14

Good Thursday to all.  Fall is in the air.   We are having cooler mornings and evenings.  Halloween will soon be upon us.
I know many of you are busy updating hubs and writing on other platforms about Fall and it's related activities.
I've still been really busy and haven't gotten anything new written up on my blog other than sharing some of the recipes that I had in lenses on squidoo into blog posts here in my Frugal Friday posts.

I will continue to share some of my older bubblews posts, ones that I will then also pin to my pinterest boards as well.

Write on!

WIP Wednesday 9/17/14

Go go go yet again this week.   I have gotten some things done.

I know this is WIP, but let me start with the 2 things that I finished that will soon be in my etsy shop.
A Halloween hexagon mat and a toothbrush rug.

The hexagons are part of my orange for this month and the soscrappy challenge (see button below).
I did also finish one orange flower.  That was all of my orange hexagons so I went through my scrap fabric last night.  I found quite a bit of orange in there that I will hopefully make all in to yo-yo's before the end of the month.

I'm in the process of re-organizing my scrap fabric out of 2 of the fabric drawers and in to 2 storage drawers.  One for lights and one for darks.   That is going well.   I have 3 boxes of unsorted fabric to go through as well.
I should have taken a picture.

I worked more on my hotpads at sit n' sew this past Friday at the quilt shop.  I finished 8 of them and have 7 of them pinned to be sewn around.  Then there is the pile of the rest of them to be finished up.

This is my current UFO list although really not all of my projects are on it!


Rectangle quilt
challenge wall hanging
GoodNight Irene quilt/wall hanging
Yo-Yo Table runner
Emerald Island Fusique table runner
Five and Dime quilt
34 Hot Pads (8 done)
Christmas bags (total of at least 25)

Frugal Friday with Marsha -- Tuna Casserole

This week's frugal recipe share is tuna casserole.
This is the tuna casserole that my mom always served us when we were growing up. I didn’t know that there even was a different tuna casserole until well into my adulthood.

It’s not what you are used to for sure. Our whole family really likes it, even though we really aren’t that fond of tuna. In fact, I’ve had company over a few times while I was fixing it. They were unsure about my invite to stay for supper when they heard that I was making tuna casserole. Once they tasted it, they were hooked.

A very frugal main dish!

This is a photo that I took the last time I fixed it for supper. Fresh out of the oven with melted butter on top.

Tuna Casserole

Simple and cheap and this is a family favorite for sure!!

1-6 oz. can tuna-drained
16 saltine crackers-crushed
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk

Mix together, pour into a greased baking dish. Bake at 350ยบ for 30 minutes. Serves 3-4. ( mom says 8 minutes in the microwave for single batch and 15 minutes for double batch, but in the microwave the edges get hard)

I like to put margarine over the top to melt right as it comes out of the oven. We usually always serve this with canned carrots and pineapple.

Is that easy or what? And, I am telling you, no one around here can ever get enough and company has always raved about it. When we make this we have to at least double the recipe if not triple it.

This dish is the perfect size for making the tuna casserole:

WIP Wednesday 9/10/14

I think I lost last week somewhere along the way.  I've been so super busy with things outside the home.

I did make the decision to make a Halloween table topper/wall hanging with the Halloween fabrics for the orange challenge over on the soscrappy blog.  (See button at the bottom of my post)
I have a crochet order to work on, but I still hope to have this done by this time next week.

Yesterday was sewing club day at church so I worked on my larger 4 patch squares.  I can see this taking a few more months to get them all made and then put together.
This is what I came up with to sew together for a child's quilt.

Here is my UFO list although it doesn't truly include everything such as the hexagons above, or any hexagons since I'm not sure what I am going to end up doing with them.


Rectangle quilt
challenge wall hanging
GoodNight Irene quilt/wall hanging

Terry's Treasures has started a new sew along that I am going to take part in and need to get started on!

Frugal Friday with Marsha 9/5/14 Chicken with Carrots and Gravy

Here is another one of our family favorites. I don’t remember if someone told me to make this or if I just threw it together.

                    Chicken with Carrots and Gravy

1 lb boneless chicken breasts
1 can carrots, drained
2 cans or jars of chicken gravy.

I cook 3 lbs of the boneless chicken breasts in the crockpot at a time as they are sold in the 3 lb bags frozen. I then cube and divide it, using 1/3 for this recipes and freezing the other 2/3 seperately for other meals.

Once the chicken is cooked and drained, top with the can of carrots and the 2 jars or cans of chicken gravy. Cook in the crockpot long enough for the carrots and gravy to heat.

We serve this over mashed potatoes.

Like I said, it’s quick, easy and cheap, but it’s also very filling.

This is the crockpot that I use when I make my chicken with carrots and gravy.  I've had it for years and it had held up very well.

Writer's Unite Weekly Link Up 9/4/14

September is here already.  Things have been super busy with school starting and now this week the State Fair starts.  That means not only my regular activities, but also going to the fair, working a youth group fundraiser at the church my daughter attends youth group, and also 4 days of a big fundraiser at our own church as well!  Whew! 

I haven't gotten any of my late squidoo writings here on my blog yet, but I did get some of the book reviews into bubblews posts.  I will be sharing 2 of those in this week's linky.

Thanks for sharing!

WIP Wednesday 9/3/14

I don't think it's been a very productive sewing week, but maybe it has been.
I was able to finish my Sunflower table runner and 4 placemats and take those off of my UFO list.

I found a few stray fabric strips around and worked more on this toothbrush rug.  It still has a ways to go before it's large enough for me to call finished.
It's September and the soscrappy challenge (see button at the bottom of my post) color for September is orange.
A lot of my orange fabric is Halloween print.
My goal by today was to get all of the loose hexagons made.  I did make that goal, but noticed that I have more than enough of the pumpkins for a flower.  I have 4 flower sets pinned together with those pumpkins and one with another Halloween fabric.  Not really what you want to make flowers with so I've changed up my plan.
Now I'm working to make all of the Halloween hexagons and see if by change it's enough to make a small wall hanging or table topper with them.
That has become my September goal now.
