Friday Hodge Podge

I don't typically combine a bunch of stuff into one post, but I figured I would today. So, please have patience...there's a lot to say in this one post. LOL!

First of all, many of you have asked for the Chicken Pot Pie recipe. While I wish I could take the credit, I cannot. I found it over at Family Food. Here is the recipe.

It was very tasty, and everyone enjoyed it. Well, almost enjoyed...you see, it calls for frozen mixed veggies, and Caleb didn't like the crunchiness of them. Other than that, it was fine. Next time, I think I'll thaw my veggies a little better (think that may have been the problem), or I'll use different frozen veggies (maybe some broccoli, carrots, and corn). I just grabbed a bag of mixed veggies (corn, carrots, green beans, and peas) at Walmart. And -- did I mention I DESPISE those little peas...I always pick them out of any dish that has them, but I sucked it up and ate them last night. Brian and I enjoyed it, so it will be cooked again. ***The only thing I did to make it my own was that I seasonsed my chicken with a little Rosemary Herb seasoning before cooking/browning it in the skillet.***


Next on the agenda -- Together We Save gifted me with this Sisterhood award today. Isn't it the cutest? And -- I do not have this one yet, so I am honored to receive it.

Now, I'm supposed to nominate 5 blogs that show Attitude and/or Gratitude. So, here are my nominees:

1. Confessions of a Semi-Slacker Mom
2. Handbags & Handguns
3. One of the Jones!
4. The Naulu Tribe
5. Ashley's Antics
Enjoy the stardom that comes with such an award ladies! You deserve it!!!!

Finally, Sandee over at Sew Much Detail gave me the Kreativ Blogger award. Now, I don't know where she heard I was Kreativ, but that's not true. LOL! I'm soooo not Kreativ...about as far from it as you can get. But -- I will accept this award with love and pass it on accordingly. :)

List 7 things you love and then pass the award on to 7 people..tagging them and letting them know they won!You can copy the picture of the award and put it on your sideboard letting the whole wide world know you are KReATIV!

7 things...oh how I love thee:
1. My hubby -- seriously, I don't know what I'd do without him. He truly completes me.

2. My two boys -- they are my everything, and they always put a smile on my face.

3. CHOCOLATE -- yep, I said it...I'm a chocoholic.

4. Reality TV -- again, I admit it. We watch pretty much all of the Reality TV shows except Big Brother and the ones that come on VH1 or MTV and some of the other ones that just aren't appropriate in our house.

5. Fried pork chops -- I know...totally random, huh?!!? But -- it's my favorite meal that my mom cooks, and she would cook it for me on my birthday. That is...until FRIED became ugly. So, I've lived without for a few years now. :(

6. Being a SAHM and Homeschooling mommy -- I love that I get to spend these days with my boys and enjoy every moment with them. I love seeing their little faces light up when they grasp a concept. Granted, we have our moments, but the rewards surely outweigh any cons.

7. Blogging -- Did you think I'd leave this one off? This is my outlet, and I truly enjoy it. People may not always think what I write is relevant or funny, but that's okay...it's a form of therapy maybe...and it's a social outlet in it's own weird kind of way. LOL!

Now, for the 7 blogs I'm supposed to nominate...well, since I just nominated five above, how about they grab this one, too. Then, anyone else that doesn't have this one can grab it. Besides...isn't that what all the blog love is about???? Sharing!!!! So, copy and paste people...that's what it is there for. Consider YOURSELF nominated for the Kreativ Blogger award!

I have to use canned vegetables for things like that because like your son, I find the frozen ones are just too firm. It sounds delish though!

B Boys Mom said...

My kids don't like frozen veggies either for the same reason. They love the canned veggies that are soft or fresh that I have steamed a long time. I love chicken pot pie in the winter, yummy! Congrats on all the awards.

Thanks for the awards. I'll gladly accept the first, but I'm not so sure about the second. I am NOT creative at all.
