#18 is chicken and rice casserole. I had made this hot dish, added some carrots, and put it in the oven. When it was finished, I took it out to cool.
Unknown to me, "someone" (probably Sadie) had their eye on this. Part of one chicken piece was eaten, even before it was completely cool!
As a bonus, she also carried away some carrots and left them on the kitchen floor, mostly uneaten.
I am sad to report that Jim's dad is once again back in the hospital. He's had a number of health problems, and many of the tests have come back inconclusive. It's been frustrating for the family, as he continues to have pain and feel poorly. We'd appreciate any purrs or prayers.
