Chicken & Green Bean Casserole

     My fiance and I are currently trying extremely hard to find a house. Our lease for our apartment will be up on April 28, 2013 and as those of you who have purchased a home before know, it takes TIME...and lots of it. We've been looking since the middle of January and it's now the end of February. We've exhausted all of our current options for a home and we've had our ups and downs throughout the process. Well, downs...I suppose if we had an "up" we would have a house. Anyways, needless to say, it's been a stressful couple of months. I WILL keep my head up, no matter what. My passion is cooking, so it definitely relieves me and calms me down. Moving on.

     I'm sure I've told you this before, but one of my favorite things to cook on busy nights are slow cooker recipes. My other favorite thing to cook is a casserole. Casseroles are easy for the same reason as slow cooker recipes. You generally throw it all together and go! They are extremely delicious and most of the time, creamy. I envision creamy foods more appropriate during the winter, but are always good for dinner.
