Slow Cooking Thursday

Molly over at Waiting for the Moment has begun a new weekly post called Slow Cooking Thursday. I’ve asked if I might adopt the theme too, as a blogging prompt.

So here is my first Slow Cooking Thursday (on Friday).

What has happened this week so far:
Music Man had his auditions at the Alma Mater Monday; now we wait. Got to catch up with college friends while there – so good to see them again! Congregation Council elected officers – new leadership team for the year. Local high school’s student-written and produced musical opened last night. Got to see Music Man sing and play a knight in tights!

What’s up for the weekend:
Friday is dinner with friends, and maybe some live music somewhere. Saturday will be boat show and Ikea. Visitation Pastor is preaching this weekend. I teach catechism Sunday afternoon – Hallowed Be Your Name – and then there is a funeral to conduct.

Song In My Head:
Coldplay’s “Viva la Vida”

Progeny Story of the Week
Would have to be GameBoy’s tremendous performance at his (and my) Taekwon-Do Black Belt Test last Saturday.
I am procrastinating about:
Doing our taxes.

Scripture I am trying to wrap my head (and heart) around:
Mark 1:12-13
13And the Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. He was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan; and he was with the wild beasts; and the angels waited on him.

Favorite TV minute this week:
See Dr. John Carter return to the ER

Unfavorite moment: Seeing Dr. John Carter receiving a chemo treatment
Dinner for tonight (didn’t think early enough to put something in the crock pot today) :
Ham Casserole

8 oz. pasta (bite-size), cooked and drained
2 C cubed ham
1 oz can mushrooms, drained
3 T butter
4 T flour
1 C chicken broth
1 C milk
dash of hot sauce
pepper and salt to taste
1 C shredded cheddar or swiss

Place pasta, ham, and mushrooms in greased casserole dish. Melt butter, whisk in flour until smooth. Slowly add broth and milk, stirring over medium low heat until thick and smooth. Add seasonings. Pour over ham and pasta mixture. Add cheese and stir together. Top with crushed saltines, if desired. Bake at 325 for 25-30 minutes.
