August 1, 2012

As I finish this evening, I have 1 sickling, I have attempted 3 Pinterest Recipes, started a new blog, and gathered things for our trip to the beach this weekend.   All in all it has been a very productive day (being I missed work).

Kaylee's temperature has been back and forth most of the day.  Hoping it's a 24 hour bug, and it's over with tomorrow.  It's crazy how my kids very rarely get sick, and when they do, they still act normal with talking, just sweeter, and calmer.  I received the luck of the draw with my 2 little ladies.

So recipes from Pinterest tonight.  The original was Chicken Enchilada Puffs(Recipe Here), However, I changed it up a little for the items I had on hand.  I used Ground Beef (instead of chicken), and used taco seasoning (instead of the enchilada) I will say, Brooke (5) LOVED them.  I had to hurry to get the picture before she ate all of them.   Definitely a hit.

Earlier in the day, while Kaylee was finally eating some soup, Brooke and I hit the kitchen for these Baked String Cheese Bites (Recipe Here) Once again, Brookie was begging me to make more.  But I used up the last of the cheese sticks, so we were out of luck.  There is a lot of comments about the balls melting out, and when I went to check on mine, they where starting to.  She says she used fat free cheese sticks.  Mine where only low fat.  And to freeze them for a few minutes after you have cut them up before making these to make them not melt so fast.  Brookie and I grabbed some Mariana and gobbled them up. 

My last recipe of the night was the Starbucks Lemon Loaf.  However, I was hoping I could get away with not having the lemon extract, and using vanillia, with a little extra lemon juice.  FAIL.  Although this might look really awesome.  It was only ok.  I'm sure had I followed the directions, it would have been great :) (Recipe Here)
And now, I'm calling it a night.
