Who knows what's going on one day to the next?

SO much happening!


  • Hubby is still healing from his back surgery
  • The girl child just had her wisdom teeth out
  • I have a root canal coming up
  • My parents are coming into town
  • We might head out for a few nights at the beach
  • Hallmark Christmas in July starts 7/14 (OMG!)

It's chaos let me tell you!

That's OK though, I won't be too far from my computer.
Not sure how much I will be posting, if anything.

Just bear with me, I will be back soon!

Reese's Puffy Cookies

I feel like the name of these cookies might be a bit deceiving.
I received a box of these cookies from my friend Jennay from A Day in the Life of Jennay and they were big, puffy, and delicious!

She sent me the recipe. I made them. They were delicious...but nowhere near big and puffy.

We talked the next day, I did nothing wrong as far as she can tell. Best we can come up with is the fact that it was yucky out here. Weather matters.

I will keep trying to make them puffy though, since hubby and the girl ate them all, we need more in the house!

Ingredients:
2 ¼ Cup all purpose flour
1 Tsp salt
1 Tsp baking soda
1 Cup brown sugar
½ Cup sugar
1 Cup softened butter
1 Tsp vanilla
2 Large eggs
10.5 oz bag of Reese’s Pieces


Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 375
2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
3. Combine flour, salt, and baking soda in a medium bowl
4. Combine brown sugar, sugar, butter, and vanilla until creamy
5. Add eggs to wet mixture and beat thoroughly
6. Add dry ingredients slowly, mix well
7. Add Reese’s Pieces and mix
8. Drop rounded tablespoons onto prepared cookie sheet
9. Bake 8-10 minutes

Fiesta Nacho Casserole


I know I am a little late in posting today, sorry!
(sorry, I was eating a Milky Way)

We went away for the weekend with my aunt and uncle, it was very relaxing to do not much of anything!
Except get sunburn...in the shade...with no sun in the sky. Yup, that's my souvenir!

Came home last night as hubby was more than a little anxious about traffic today. I get it, with him still healing from the back surgery and all, I am lucky he was willing to go 2 hours away to begin with!
He loved it too though, it was nice for him to get out of the house and have a change of scenery too.

It was cold and rainy on Friday, so my aunt and I ran to the store and got stuff to make a big batch of Chili and a hunk of fresh bread.
Warm your bones!

We did manage some sun the next couple of days and temps in the low 60's. Doesn't quite feel like the un-official kick off to summer like it should!

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend.
What were your plans?





Ingredients:
3 Cups shredded chicken
2 Large tomatoes (chopped)
1 Cup Carrots (shredded)
1 Cup Corn kernels
½ Cup Salsa verde
2 Cloves garlic (pressed)
1 Tsp Chili powder
Tortilla Chips
½ Cup crumbled feta
Cilantro leaves
Hot sauce


Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 400
2. Spray 2 qt baking dish with cooking spray
3. In large bowl, combine chicken, tomato, carrots, corn, salsa, garlic, and chili powder
4. In baking dish, arrange a layer of chips
5. Top with half of the chicken mixture
6. Top with half of the feta
7. Repeat all layers
8. Arrange a layer of chips around the top of casserole
9. Bake 20 minutes or until hot
10. Top with cilantro and hot sauce
