Happy Homemaker Monday 02.05.18

Good Evening!  It’s a late one, but it’s still Monday.  We are experiencing a nice little winter storm at the moment.  Looking to get about 3-5 inches of snow tonight.  Then more later on in the week.  We really haven’t had much snow, so I am enjoying it.

 Linking-up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.




So I saw a recipe for Chicken Cordon Bleu.  It looked super delicious, but rather involved.  The video I saw of it, didn’t have the recipe written out, so I did a Google search to see if I could find it, and Google suggested a Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole!  Yes please!!  I checked it out, and used the sauce recipe from the first one I saw, and this is what I came up with.  Super easy, very flavorful!!

Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

Cook 3 lbs Chicken in Crock Pot 3 to 4 hours

Season with:

1 t salt

1 t pepper

1 t Garlic Powder

1 t Onion Powder

Shred and layer at bottom of 9 x 13 Casserole dish

Dice ¼ lb. of ham (from the deli) and layer over chicken.

Sprinkle 1 ½ cups shredded Swiss Cheese over Ham

Prepare the Sauce:

3  T Butter

2  Garlic Gloves

3  T Flour

2  c milk

¼ c Dijon Mustard

1  c shredded Parmesan Cheese



Melt butter, add flour until creamy.  Add milk until combined.  Add Dijon mustard, salt, pepper and parmesan cheese.  Stir until thick and creamy.

Pour sauce over the cheese layer


1 ½ c Panko bread Crumbs

4 T Butter – melted

½ t Season Salt

Mix bread crumbs and season salt, add melted butter and mix together.  Sprinkle topping over the top of the sauce.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.  Serve with your favorite side dishes




Always fun to watch.  My son shares these with me.  These are real shots, not a trick of the camera.  I read an article from a couple of years ago, that two of the 5 guys do this as a full time job.  Maybe by now they all do, but I enjoy watching them, and you can’t help but get excited when they land these crazy tricks.


Over the weekend my middle son Elijah turned 17!  He just loved the cake that my nephew had at his wedding, so I ordered his cake from the lady who made theirs.  It was delicious.  As they are getting older, it’s getting harder to coordinate everyone’s schedule to celebrate.  But he was able to have fun at the Youth Night at church.

Not much else going on.  I’ll be working on filing taxes for everyone, but that is actually something I enjoy doing and I’ll be doing some painting in the bathroom this weekend.

  1. Send us some snow! It keeps missing us. I just want one decent snow storm. That recipe sounds wonderful, I’ll have to file it away for hunting season (my husband won’t eat Swiss cheese). Hope your son had a great birthday! And hope you are having a wonderful week so far!

  3. Enjoyed reading your post. Happy birthday to Elijah (love the cake!) and enjoyed giggles and chuckle quote. LOL! 😀 And, yes! Your Super Bowl Sundae is the kind of Super Bowl Sundae that I can relate to. I am NOT a football fan! LOL! 🙂 Have a blessed week ahead! ❤
