    This has always been a favorite of mine! I use cream of celery soup and most often don't use the cashews. It will even work stove top if you're REALLY pressed for time. It's just a terrific, fast and economical meal. Thanks for posting this!

    I've always loved this recipe. Mom always added sliced water chestnuts.

    This recipe takes me back to 1958 and my Mothers kitchen. We thought this was very exotic food from the Far East way back then. Ultimate comfort food for me and my sisters. Yummy!!Thanks for sharing.


<p>I'm a stay at home Mama of three, and yes Kansas is my real name and no I've never been there :) My oldest daughter Dallas, is 27 and doesn't live at home anymore. She had my first grandbaby, Lexi, on Dec 10, 2008! I also have a 13 year old daughter Sydney, and a 8 year old son Jevan (rhymes with Heaven), who keep me fairly busy. I raise chickens for eggs, have 5 dogs, Mini, Blue, Teddy, Doolittle, and Jumbo, plus 2 cats Billie and Cactus. I live on a large cattle ranch and can always find something to do, even if I don't want to :) My blog address where you can find more recipes, crafts, and photography, as well as living on a Ranch posts, is at</p>
