A Giveaway, Metamorphosis Monday and Ham and Asparagus Casserole





I have a little giveaway for you this morning! I found this cute bird necklace over at Ginger's blog Appleseed Gifts. She has the cutest jewelry! I thought this necklace was perfect for a giveaway from my blog because it has the little bird, and I'm Songberries! So, if you want to win this cute little bird necklace, here are the rules.

Here's a little project I did a while back. I had these fun old jars that were down in the basement. I like to keep the kids snacks in them. I've really liked the number craze that's popular in decorating, so I decided to add numbers to my jars. I don't have a before picture, but I bet you can just picture it!


So here they are! I really like them. I ordered the vinyl numbers from Creations By Kara. I just told her what font I wanted and the side and she made them right up.
Head on over to Between Naps On The Porch and see what everyone else is up too! Don't forget to check out my easy casserole recipe.




I found this recipe over at Inspiring Creations. I love casseroles because they usually go together fast. Asparagus prices are so great right now, it makes this recipe very affordable. We had this for St. Patrick's Day because of the green asparagus, but it makes a nice spring casserole!

Ham and Asparagus Casserole


1 lb of fresh asparagus cut into 1 inch pieces (cooked until it still has a crunch to it)
2 cups of ham cut into 1 inch pieces
3 cups of cooked white rice
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 cup of chicken broth
3 cups of cheddar cheese divided
1 tsp lemon pepper seasoning
Salt and Pepper to taste

In a large mixing bowl, combine asparagus, rice, ham, lemon pepper seasoning, 1 1/2 cups of the cheese.

In a saucepan on medium heat, combine the soup and broth and heat until hot, then add 1 cup of cheese and whisk until the cheese is melted. Pour the sauce over your rice mixture and mix until well blended. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Cook at 350* for 20 minutes then sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top and cook another 10-15 minutes. Or until hot and bubbly.
