Over at 11th Heaven's it is Homemaker Monday, If you want to check it out, just click on the title of this post or go to my sidebar, it's in My Blog List.

This is my first try at this meme. I save jars, all kinds of jars. Especially big jars, I use them for all kinds of things. I have been saving Jif Peanut Butter and Kraft Miracle Whip jars. They are plastic now, so you don't have to worry about them breaking. I wash them and get the labels off of them. Then I put my own labels on them.

I use them to put my Scrapbook stuff in. Pieces of ribbon, Rick Rack, chipboard, pens and markers and just about anything else you can think of. Don't they look nice sitting on my shelf. And no they don't usually block the clock. I moved them so you could see them better.

I found this recipe on a can of Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup. It's really good, quick to fix and my family loves it. I usually cut the pepper down some, as I don't like that much pepper. You can also add a few slices of cheese to the top. Add the cheese just before baking time is over. Just long enough to melt the cheese.

Chicken and Rice Bake

1 Can of Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 C. of water
3/4 C. Uncooked White Rice
1/4 tsp. Paprika
1/4 tsp. Pepper
4 Skinless Chicken Breast Halves

In 2 Quart shallow baking dish, mix soup, water, rice, paprika and pepper. Mix these ingredients well. Place chicken breast on top of mixture. Sprinkle with paprika and pepper. Cover and bake at 375 for 45 minutes or until done.
