the friday freebie: “the gang”

Many of you have come to know one thing about me over time . . . I like to say things with some style. I tend to stay with the clean and simple side, however, that’s not to say I don’t dabble in the grungy too. I like all styles, but I do lean towards clean.And I like right justification too. I don’t know why. It’s a sickness, really. ;)

So that’s why I love this type of lettering. It gives you that 3-D look, like it’s coming up off the page (I think I’m in a brown and grey mood this week too. lol).

It comes in two pieces for layering like this:

This title is perfect for just about any occasion–a family reunion, your child’s birthday party, high school friends, a group of ya on a trip . . . any group shot, really.

It comes in GSD/SVG/DXF/JPG/PNG for digital scrapping, Cricut, Silhouette, Wishblade, Klick-n-Kut, Pazzles, etc.

So last night I tried a brand new recipe called Chicken Tetrazzini from the kitchen of my dear friend Kristy Banks. Apparently this recipe is intended to use with your food storage–you know, to cycle it around as you need to. Because of that, it calls for canned mushrooms and canned chicken. I, on the other hand, like both my chicken and my mushrooms fresh, when possible. :)

We all liked this a lot and will be making it again. Thanks Miss Kristy! (She’s such a good cook.)


White sauce:
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. flour
1 c. whipping cream (you can use half & half or whole milk–I used half & half)
2 c. chicken broth
1/2 tsp. pepper

Melt butter over medium heat and wisk in flour. Add milk and chicken broth and whisk out lumps. Keep stirring until thickened.

Pour over 14 oz. cooked spaghetti (broken up in pieces before cooking). Add 1 can Costco chicken or chopped cooked chicken breast (I did two) and 1 can sliced or fresh mushrooms (I chopped mine super small for those “picky” eaters). Pour into a 9×13 greased pan and sprinkle 1/2 c. parmesan cheese on the top (or more, if you’re like me). Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes.

OH! And you must, must, MUST go check out Nichol’s page today on her blog! The butterflies are just luscious! She just knocks my socks off!

    Thanks for the word pile i call them. I love the ones you do. I always loved Kristy Banks scrapbook style, the pages they would show on QVC and some books. How is she? Does she have a blog? Miss seeing her work. What a sweet friend you are and you have.

    Kelly…you'll have to let us all know how you liked the chicken tetrazzini!

    Rhadonda, sadly, Kristy doesn't have a blog. QVC…those were the good ol' days, eh? And I like the name "word pile." ;)
