    Oh Faye, that cake is soooo good. If I can ever find the cake recipe, I'll definitely share... maybe I'll even make one and share! :)

    Faye- LOL! And thanks for the update... that sounds delicious, as everything is better with creamy mushroom soup (well, at least in my book! :-) And ours was great tonight, thanks!!!

    RFB - I changed things up a bit on the chicken tonight. I added a can of Progresso creamy mushroom soup to the bottom of the pan before adding the chicken coated in Kraft Fresh Take. I actually cut the chicken into tenders this time so they would not have to cook as long and be more manageable for the kids. I then sprinkled the leftover Kraft Fresh Take on top of the chicken and soup. It was delicious on the egg noodles!

    How did yours turn out?

    FYI - now I want amaretto cake. Thanks ladies.....

    jdouglas13- That is so funny as my DH has just been begging me to make this again the last few days, as it's his favorite! I have not heard of it with ricotta... but WOW!!!! Thanks for the tip :-)

    RFB, I was just on your site and saw Dina's amaretto cake. Oh my... have you ever had or seen the version using ricotta cheese? You mix the ricotta with amaretto and sugar,and just pour it over the top of the batter in the cake pan and bake. It doesn't get stirred in. I lost my recipe many years ago, but boy, it was sooooooo good!

    Tonight is going to be ham, swiss, and sliced tomato sandwiches on sourdough toast. The ham was Kretschmar deli ham on sale at Lowes and I actually found a coupon. Deli is so expensive, so it's a rare treat around here.

    jallen5 - your hubby is a trooper to grill in the rain! Kudos to him!

    I make a similar corn casserole and it's always gone in a flash! We're having BOGO tuna steaks and sale cauliflower from HT last week. The hubs is grilling in the rain.
