Boy Scout Patches

Made some patches for Boy Scout Troop 25. They pick up all the used Christmas trees and place them in ponds for the fish. Let me know if you need a special patch made up for your troop, group or team.

Low-carb Cheesy Chicken & Broccoli Casserole

I had to alter several recipes to get this. The hard part was to get a low carb casserole. Without flour to thicken things up, most casseroles end up runny. I ended up using a cream cheese and parmesan cheese sauce to thicken things up and it worked great. For the hard-core low-carb people out there, you can leave off the fried onions and add an extra layer of shredded cheese for a topper instead.
