recipes for a rainy week



There are many recipes I’ve been wanting to try. Monday I decided that I would try as many as possible this week.

Monday night I made Green Chili Enchiladas from Patti at Patti’s Pantry. They were very good…we had the leftovers tonight! I also made my homemade salsa, I will post the recipe for that later…just remind me!

Tuesday for a treat I made mini candy apples from little momma and company. Kiley and Terra came over to help. Kiley is Jaxon’s girlfriend!




Tuesday for dinner I made a recipe that my friend Terra gave me. It was SO good. I don’t know what it is called, so I’ll just call it Yummy Chicken.

Yummy Chicken
*6-8 chicken tenders or 2 chicken breasts- place in the bottom of a baking dish
*season – I used minced garlic and onion, seasoned salt, and lots of pepper
*top with sliced swiss cheese
*cover with one can cream of chicken soup (I use the healthy request)
*sprinkle with bread crumbs (I also crushed some croutons)
*melt 1/2 stick butter and pour over top
*bake at 350 for 45 minutes….YUMMY and so tender!!
I served with steamed rice and vegetables!!

Tonight I made brownie swirled peanut butter oreo cookies. Oh yes I did….they are amazing, except for the second batch that I burned!!

This is one of the best salads I’ve had in a while.
I made this when we had company last week. No recipe really…I just marinated some chicken tenders in tequila lime marinade. I mixed some spinach and romaine together with some chopped celery and green onions. I had little cups with all the toppings, like a salad bar! Cherry tomoatos, a few different cheeses, turkey bacon, apples, tropical salsa, etc. Then I made homeade ranch (from the packet, made with low-fat buttermilk, fat-free mayo and light sour cream) and homeade cilantro citrus vinagrette (also from a packet)!!! SO good…make it!!

Yes, I had a little bit of fun with Picnik tonight!! My laptop is on the fritz and it has my photoshop on it…I needed an alternative and I had fun!
Stay tuned for the reveal of my big art project on Friday!!!

Family Pictures… *updated*

We finally had some pictures made a little while ago…and I finally ordered them! I scanned a few of them in to share! Please excuse the dust on my scanner!
This first one was already framed…it’s a little crooked!

*Brad Myers from church took them. Click on his name to go to his website. He and Terra did a great job! They were fun to work with, it was very relaxed and they are affordable!
