Jackie's Freezable Chicken Enchiladas
2-3 cups of shredded cooked chicken breast (place in sauce pan)
Saute in small pan with olive oil:
1 small onion, chopped
1 small tomatoe, chopped
1 small green pepper, chopped
Add the veggie mixture to chicken, heat over medium heat.
Add 1/2 cup of red salsa, and salsa verde. Mix well, let simmer.
Once mixture is bubbling, turn off heat, and add 1/2 cup of sour cream. Mix well, and let cool.
Fill ten flour tortillas, and roll up. Freeze in small Ziploc bags. I prefer to freeze them individually since we're such a small family. A pan of ten enchiladas would be too much for us right now, so this makes the perfect quick meal.
When ready to cook, place in baking pan, sprinkle with cheese and more salsa if you have some. Cook at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes till cheese is melted and center of enchiladas is bubbling.
I love Mexican food.
Every girl needs a little bling, right? We got this great idea from No Time For Flashcards. The idea is simple, decorate a toilet paper roll, cut it into thick circles, loop a ribbon around them...and wala! A necklace!
The finished product was proudly worn around The Fripits' neck. It went well with her princess outfit, dontcha think?

In the Kitchen: Homemade chicken stock bubbling in the crock pot, a pile of dirty lunch dishes calling my name.
I am thankful for: new flowers on my front porch
I am wearing: my croc flip-flops. Always.
I am sewing: Uh...next question please.
I am hearing: Fripits scrape the bottom of her bowl as she finishes up her chocolate chip ice cream. Great summer time snack.
I am reading: The Redemption of Sarah Cain by Beverly Lewis
I just saw: A scrape on my little girls knee.
I am looking forward to: A cook out at my mom's house tonight.
I am thinking: That I need to start my bread machine.
I am remembering: Those dishes that I need to wash....
You know the days I'm talking about. It's really hot outside, I overslept (which means I haven't showered yet, or excercised...gross.)
On those days I'm shot (worn out, exhausted, frazzled, tired, cranky, etc.) by 8:30 am. That's a long time away from nap time.
We're resorting to long day activities today.
Here's to hoping we all make it.
UPDATE: Hubby has taken Oldest Child to run errands with him, Youngest Child is having a morning nap which means...(drumroll) I get to take a shower! Three cheers for the good guys!

Brown Sugar Oatmeal Pancakes
The pancakes were okay...not as fluffy as I like, but they are a tad bit healthier than a regular recipe. The sauce was really good...and a great way to use up all the strawberries that were getting soft and mushy in my fridge.
