Valentine Frog Craft & a Casserole

So as a lot of you know, we have been crafting all week in school!  Making all kinds of animals out of hearts. I think today's is the best yet!  

I used green foam sheets just because i had a bunch.  1 large heart for the body, two equally sized smaller ones for the feet, 1 medium heart for the head and 1 heard cut in half for the legs.  Stuff for eyes and a heart for his heart!

Glued them with Elmers glue stick

Wala....I made a pond for them to sit in, a few lilly pads etc....the sign says..."Welcome to Lilly Pad Lake"..

This will work out great with our themed Froggy Valentine's Day Party on Monday!

Hope you have liked our crafts so far this week! 

I also wanted to share this great casserole with you all!  This recipe was given to us from a friend who made it while I was recovering from a CSection. You can use left over ham, chicken, veggies, pretty much anything you want to....

Pasta Pie:

1 cup sour cream
1 cup shredded cheddar
2 cups favorite cooked pasta
2 cups of your favorite meat (we love it with ham)
1 can of you favorite veggie (we love it with peas)
1 can of cream of chicken (or celery) soup

Combine everything but the pasta together....then add the cooked pasta (I usually put a few tablespoons of the pasta water in there too).

For some extra crunch, I add breadcrumbs to the top before baking....bake at 350 for about 30 mins....this is sooo gooey and great on a cold day!   It also heats up well for left overs!

Now, I ADORE those little frogs! They are just too lovely and a great craft for little hands (almost like making a puzzle!).

Also thought for a minute you would be sharing a "Frog Casserole" with us... Phew. Not this time!! How lovely of your friend to look after you with such a tasty treat!
