Spooky Scene and Sunday Supper

Happy Sunday! Before I get to the Sunday Supper recipe, I do have another C.C. Designs Preview for you! This set is called Spooky Scene -- there are great images for creating your own Halloween scene! I wanted to do something different with this one, so I created a picture frame.

I covered a wooden frame from Michaels in this great Cosmo Cricket Haunted paper. I sanded the edges and sponged them with SU! Basic Black ink. The reverse side of the paper has a wood grain pattern in it, so I used it for the fence. The fence is stamped twice and cut out. The other images are stamped on card stock and cut out -- and I lightly sponged Basic Black ink around them for some dimension.

This photo was taken five years ago -- it's one of my favorite photos of the neighborhood kids on Halloween. Things have changed so much since then -- all the "big kids" are too old for trick-or-treating now! :(

For more samples of this set and the other releases, go to the ATS Blog, or check out the Design Team blogs (on my sidebar). All of the new sets will be available Tuesday, September 9 at All That Scraps.

Now, for today's Sunday Supper recipe. This one is sooooo quick and easy! It came from a local fundraiser cookbook that my Mom gave me -- thanks, Mom! :)

Cranberry Chicken
4 to 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
8 oz. Catalina salad dressing (you can use fat-free)
16 oz. can whole berry cranberry sauce
Cooked rice (if desired)

Lay chicken in single layer in shallow baking dish. Combine dressing and cranberry sauce, mixing well. Spoon sauce over chicken to cover, and bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Let set 5 minutes; serve over rice if desired. This dish also reheats well.

That's all for me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a fantastic Sunday! :)
