That would have worked really well. But I didn't have any bacon in the house.

Sounds like a nice dinner.
It's always nice to get rid of all those little containers.
And sometimes you discover new flavor combinations you'd never have thought of.

Peas would have worked well. But your suggestion came too late.
But there's always "next time"

A little salad works, if nothing else.
Well you know if "Mama said so" then it must be done.

Yes I did and they were what I used.

Thanks folks.
You made my dinner last night.
Todays menu is always good for ideas as to what to fix.

I used cream of celery rather them cream of mushroom and added some rosemary.

The green beans were canned and were the low point of the meal but I needed to use them up.

Here are a few pic's.
Included is Ethel and Lucy plus what they had for dinner too.
They must have liked it because the dish was cleaned.

Glad you enjoyed your dinner, Zagut Sometimes when I'm stumped for something to make, I browse previous daily dinner threads for ideas

Looks mighty good, Zagut. Thanks for sharing your picture! Lucy and Ethel are pretty babies.

GG, I do the same thing - browsing older threads for ideas has given me a lot of inspiration on several occasions.
Grandchildren fill the space in your heart you never knew was empty.

GG, the Todays Menu thread is always a great place to look for something to fix for dinner.

Cheryl J, Thanks for saying my spur of the moment dinner looked good.

It was tasty but as always there was room for improvement.

Yes Lucy and Ethel are pretty babies.

They give me a reason for living.

But since the snow and cold arrived I can't get those two to step foot outside and they are about to drive me crazy.

Well I should say more crazy then I usually am?
