“Just Roll with It” Serving up Recipes and Humor


By Sheri Hopkins, Lifestyle Contributor

Hello everyone! Such beautiful weather we are having here in the River Valley. I want to say thank you to everyone that made the Mansfield Christmas parade a huge success. Everything went on without a hitch and it was a nice day. I love living in a small town. Big thanks to Mayor Buddy Black and the city employees. They really work hard getting everything ready. We could not have a parade without Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Traylor lining everyone up and all the floats and kiddos. I am very appreciative of everyone involved.

You know how we Wags are when we get together. We have no inside voices, and we yell and laugh and cut up. We had a get together at Pizza Parlour for my great niece, Leah’s, birthday. In Wagoner fashion, we were loud, and I had to tell a few stories on my niece, Kelly, from our Nashville trip. My brother even showed a video of her dancing that we have all laughed at. People are starting to leave, and my brother Larry and his wife Peggy leave before me. I go pay and I am walking out the door, and here they come back in the Pizza Parlour. I said, “what are y’all doing back? He replies, “I can’t find my phone!” Can y’all believe he lost his phone in the pizza place? He finally found it and he said, “the only phone I need is one with a chain attached to it.” I agree, just like those wallets that came out in the 1950’s with a chain to hook to your belt look. Someone is going to have to invent a chain for a cell phone so he can keep up with it. We all had a good laugh at his expense.

If I lose my phone, I will not tell a soul, except for the ATT&T guy that has to hook me up with a new one.

The Wag family has lost kids, dogs, phones, purses, driver’s license, inheritance checks, and debit cards, to name a few. Yes, my niece, Kelly, and her siblings got an inheritance check from her grandparents and lost it. She put it in her wallet and somehow that wallet ended up in a ditch in Muldrow, OK. Thank the Lord the person that found it was honest. She is the top contender for the most lost items.

This week’s recipe is for chicken pot pie soup. I love chicken pot pie. I have gone out to eat with my brother, Larry, and he would say order whatever you want, and I would order a chicken pot pie. He always makes fun of me for that. But I do love chicken pot pie. This is for chicken pot pie in the crock pot.

32 oz. of chicken broth
3 cans of cream of chicken soup
2 cups of milk
2 chicken breasts, cooked and chopped up (or shredded rotisserie chicken)
1 1/2 cups of frozen hash browns (southern style; you can add more if you would like)
12 oz. package of frozen mixed vegetables
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon pepper
Mix all of this together really well and put in your crockpot. You can also add the spices you like- garlic and chopped celery and onion. I would cook the celery and onion in butter to add to this. Cook on high 3-3 1/2 hours or low for 6-7 hours. You can make some biscuits, rolls or garlic bread to eat with this. Enjoy! Have a blessed week!
