  • Red Beans and Rice:

    2 packages Hillshire farm polaska keilbasa
    2 cans red kidney beans (undrained)
    1 tbs. Cajun seasoning (I love McCormick's perfect pinch in Cajun)
    Cooked rice (however much you need for your family, I cook about 3 cups)

    Cut kielbasa into bite sized pieces. Put kielbasa in a large pan with beans and seasoning. Add more water, if needed. Stir, bring to a boil over medium heat, then reduce heat and simmer 20-30 minutes until warm and desired consistency. (hubby likes his thick, I prefer mine a little more watery.) Serve over cooked rice.

  • Chicken pot pie:
    1 sm. can cream of chicken soup
    1 sm. can cream of celery soup
    1 can mixed veggies
    2 cups cooked, cubed chicken
    1 cup milk
    1 box refrigerated roll out pie crusts (there's 2 in a box)

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
    In a large bowl, mix the soups with the veggies. Stir in chicken and milk. If desired, add seasonings to taste. (sometimes I add garlic powder, onion flakes, things like that. Occasionally, I'll add cheese)
    Roll one pie crust out into a pie plate. (deep dish is best, I've found)
    Put mixture in pie crust.
    Roll other pie crust on top, and seal the edges.
    Bake 30-40 minutes, or until golden brown.
    Let sit 10 minutes before serving.
