This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

Chicken Tetrazzini..........................

I am trying to do a new recipe (to me) at least once a week. I have to justify all the cook books I buy somehow. Besides the same old fare gets a tad boring and my husband does not mind trying something new. Lets face it, he likes his food and is not fussy.
So this week I tried the Chicken Tetrazzini that was in the latest book I bought.
I will put the complete recipe at the bottom of the post. That way I can be sure you get it right. I wish I knew how to make it printable so if anyone knows please do let me know OK.

(see list at the end)

I cooked spaghetti the night before and so I saved some cooked spaghetti for this. You chop the celery, prepare mushrooms ( I peel them) Chop green peppers and onion and cook that in butter. It looks so pretty.

Add the spices and the Sherry and Worcestershire sauce,garlic, pimientos. Add flour, milk and cheese stir it all well so cheese is melted and blended. (be sure to follow directions at the bottom)

I had to taste it at this point. My advice is not not substitute the Sherry as I did and I think the black pepper was a bit much but then I never do measure things well, so that may have been me. Next add the spaghetti and turn it in with the rest of the ingredients.

You prepare your dish for the oven by spraying with Pam..........pour your mixture into the dish and top with grated Parmesan cheese. It should look like this when done.
