We had this for dinner yesterday. It was another recipe that I found on the internet somewhere. Good, easy and not much that isn't always in my pantry.

2 chicken breasts, cut in 1" cubes
4 oz smoked sausage, cut in 1" pieces
1 c spaghetti sauce
1 1/2 tsp Creole seasoning
1-16 oz can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 c onion, chopped
2 c celery, chopped
1-14 oz can chicken broth
1 cup long-grain rice

In 4 quart slow cooker, mix all ingredients except rice. Cover and cook on low 6-7 hours. Stir in rice. Cover and cook on low for 3-45 minutes or until rice is tender. 6 servings.

Throw it all together in crockpot on warm. Serve with Tostito Scoops.

Super Bowl 43 & The Pittsburgh Steelers

Even though I am not really a big football fan, the guys in my family certainly are.. at least when it comes to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Bill was born in Oil City, PA, as were our children. They were not only thrilled to see their team make it to the big game, but to win!

On the downside, Laura's boyfriend, Geoff, chose to cheer on the Arizona Cardinals. I think there is something wrong with him... doesn't he know that a Steeler fan is not compromising? And geez, he also supports Univ of Michigan.. another no-no when I am a West Virginia alumni!!!

Okay, getting off track here, but want to congratulate those Steelers for a season well finished.
