Campbell's® Savory Portobello Mushroom Soup Review

Thursday, December 4, 2014

Campbell's sent me Campbell's® Savory Portobello Mushroom Soup to Review. I used it to make Easy Green Bean Casserole. I've had green bean casserole with the regular condensed mushroom soup before and it was decent (not my favorite), but the Savory Portobello Mushroom Soup really makes the dish fantastic. The flavor was excellent and the moisture was perfect. This is a great side dish. We had the Easy Green Bean Casserole with Creamy Lemon Dijion Chicken, but it would be a great side item with a Turkey, Ham and Chicken Roast as well. It's also super easy to make.

1 carton (14.5 ounces) Campbell's® Savory Portobello Mushroom Soup
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 dash ground black pepper
4 cups cooked cut green beans
1 1/3 cups French's® French Fried Onions

Heat the oven to 350°F. Stir the soup, soy sauce, black pepper, beans and 2/3 cup onions in a 1 1/2-quart casserole. Bake for 25 minutes or until the bean mixture is hot and bubbling. Stir the bean mixture. Sprinkle with the remaining onions. Bake for 5 minutes or until the onions are golden brown.

Where to Get Modest Clothes in Boise

Thursday, December 4, 2014

I've found four places so far to find modest clothes for church in Boise:

Petersen's Clothing Store: Petersen's is a family owned store. They carry a few skirts, shirts, dresses and clothes for women. They also carry inexpensive and reasonable priced men's suits. I also like that they are not snobby. We've gone into a few men stores (Mens Warehouse) and found them too be a little bit snooty for our taste.

Deseret Industries: Deseret Industries is like a goodwill, but they have many modest clothing options for extremely reasonable prices.

Downeast Basics: Downeast Basics carries modest shirts, skirts, and dresses. They have a store in the Boise Town Mall and Meridian.

Seagull Books: Seagull Books has a surprising amount of shirts, dresses and skirts. The only downside is that they don't have a changing room available so you have to pull the skirt up over your clothes to try them on. They do have a reasonable return policy.
