I had big plans to write up a nice long post about something of substance, but that just didn't happen. So today all I've got is a list of random thoughts to document my fairly uneventful week.
  • This week I actually had 3 new recipes in my sights...2 entree's and 1 side dish. First, I fixed Pizza Stuffed Chicken from a recent Paula Deen magazine. This was really easy & really I like to tell myself it was fairly healthy! I served this with Roasted Asparagus from none other than PW...Hubby even liked this so it was definitely a success! And finally, last night I fixed Baked Creamy Chicken Taquitos. Another success! These will all probably be put on the regular rotation at our house!
  • For those of you with kids, or husbands who act like children, the Taquitos bring the opportunity for a fun game when they're out of the oven. Simply blow on one end and steam will come out of the other...of course, please don't blow too hard or the chicken/cheese mixture will be blown all over the table. And yes, I most definitely am speaking from experience!
  • I think the heated mattress pad is one of the best inventions ever made, with these below-zero temps it's so amazing to get into a nice warm bed.
  • I started on Week 2 of Couch 2 5k last night. I'd been sticking with Week 1 because my running had been so sporadic with the weather. I'm still having doubts on running a 5k in a few months, but for now I'm sticking with it.
  • I've been in a blogging rut lately, while I still look forward to blogging; I've been a terrible commenter. Work has been really busy & when I'm at home I hate to sit around on my computer all night. Anyone else having this issue?
  • Today the high is going to be near 25, 35 tomorrow, 45 on Saturday, and 55 on Sunday...with possible 65 degree temps next week. Seriously?!? I mean seriously?!?
  • I can't wait for the weekend, it promises to be fabulous! Warmer temps, Beauty & the Beast tomorrow night, & an early Valentine's Dinner in Branson with my Hubby on Saturday. Glorious!

Stay warm everyone...the forecast looks like it's gonna improve for everyone in the midwest very, very soon!

Heated mattress pad is a life saver. I might also have to bake those taquitos and maybe wear a bib to keep the chicken from flying on me...

Yum that pizza sounds so good! And don't feel bad friend, I feel the same way. I suck at commenting lately and thinking of blog material for that matter!

I think you should post your recipes. :) I'd love the taquitos for sure, and the asparagus!!!
