Chicken Enchilada Ring


Ingredients:

2 cups cooked chicken ( you can also substitute chicken for hamburger meat)
1/4 cup chopped block olives ( if you do not like olives like aubrey and I you can leave these out)
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 small can chopped chilies, undrained
1/2 cup sour cream
1 package taco seasoning
2 rolls of crescent rolls
1 small chopped tomato
1 lime (juice)( optional)
2/3 cup finely crushed tortilla chips



1. Cook and Chop chicken and add olives, cheese, chilies, sour cream and taco mix. Seed and chop 1 tomato and add 2 tablespoons lime juice; add to chicken mixture. Reserve 2 Tblsp. crushed chips and add remaining chips to mixture.


2.Unroll crescent dough and separate triangles. If these do not unravel like they are supposed to you can still roll out your dough and cut them into however big of pieces you want and wrap them over your chicken mixture.

Arrange on round baking stone or cookie sheet( I used a cookie sheet on my pizza pan) making a circle with wide ends OVERLAPPING in the center and points toward outside. ( I did lightly spray oil on the cookie sheet I used). There should be a 5 inch diameter opening in the center.

3. Spread chicken mixture evenly onto widest end of each triangle.

4. Bring points of triangles up and over filling and tuck under wide ends of dough at the center of the ring.

Sprinkle with 2 Tblsp. crushed chips. ( I put shredded cheese all on top!)

5. Bake @ 375 for 20-25 minutes. Serve with salsa as a dip, salsa and chips, and sour cream.

Chocolate Chip Pound Cake

1 pkg dark chocolate cake mix
1 pkg instant chocolate pudding mix
1 16 oz sour cream
3 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preaheat oven to 350. Grease a bundt pan. Mix together ingredients and pour in pan. Bake for one hour and then cool. Top with powdered sugar!


This is great for dinners or family functions!

Anden's Day out!

Friday, my mom and I took anden to mcdonalds, Yes I know Anden is still too little to play but I love taking him different places and seeing his reaction. We are planning a vacation to Gatlinburg and we are going to take him to the Ripley's Aquarium! I can't wait!!


Sorry My pictures are a little fuzzy. I took them with my phone:)












My Little Winner


Yesterday Anden was in the 4H baby show and I am so exited to say..HE WOOON!! He did so good and was smiling and laughing and didn't cry not once!! This is the 2nd baby show he's been in the first one he got 2nd place and this one he won! I was so proud!








It felt like it was 200 degrees there! We all was drenched in sweat! It also didn't help me wearing a white jacket with my dress, but I did not feel comfortable not wearing it. ( need to loose about 20 + pounds first ha!)

His outfit said " Made in the USA" lol I thought that was cute. It was made by Karissa at Sew Sweet! I just knew I wouldn't have time to make it with all the running I had to do so she saved me! Thanks!


He is such a ham!! He loves attention! When I walked off stage there was this older lady that said" He is such a doll, he really deserved that!) It made me feel so good, even though I do not need a trophy or anyone to tell me my baby is cute because trophy or no trophy he's always the cutest little winner in my book!!






Afterwards, we celebrated by going with the family to O'Charleys....yummmmmmyyyy I love their rolls! Hope everyone has a great Monday tomorrow! I know Anden and I will, Aubrey is off work!! yayy for daddy being home!!

Happy Father's Day

I have to say I have been blessed with some amazing Dads in my life. I have my biological dad, my stepdad, My sisters dad who is like a daddy to me, and my father in law. Each one has brought happiness to my life. I am so thankful to have such amazing people in my life.



My daddy is a man who can take on anything. He is very strong and tries his best at what life brings him. The quote "If there's a will, there's a way" reminds me of him. Of all the things he's gone through, he has never gave up and for that I admire so much. Thank you all for being such a big part of my life.






I was so blessed to have such an amazing father in law as well. He would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. He is the most hard working , family oriented man you will meet, and he makes me feel like I'm one of his children too. He is such an amazing grandpa to Anden and Aubrey is just like him.





My stepdad leslie has really brought happiness to our family as well. My mom is so happy and he is so good to my siblings and I. He has always been there if I needed him and I am so thankful to have a awesome step dad & Anden a great Pa!




My Sister's dad, jeff has been in my life since I was 2 years old. I grew up calling him Daddy and still do! He has always been there for me and continues to do so.








This is aubrey's first fathers day and as I type this I cry and smile at the same time. Aubrey and I tried for almost 2 years for a baby, and just when we didn't expect it I was pregnant! I remember the day like it was yesterday calling him on the phone just screaming and crying and that night going to our parents to tell them the great news. Anden has brought so much love and joy in our lives and Aubrey is such an amazing daddy to him. God has truly blessed me with one amazing man to share my life with:



Aubrey,


Every day I grow more and more in love with you. You have showed me so much love and happiness and I am truly blessed to have married such an amazing man. Seeing you with our son just melts my heart. You are such a wonderful dad to Anden. He has the greatest role model as a dad. I thank God for blessing Anden with a dad that loves him so much. I cannot wait to see us grow as a family together. This is going to be one amazing journey, and I am so glad I get to share it with you. Anden and I love you more than anything! Hope you have a great first father's day!


Love,

Mommy and Bug
