a little slow.....

I had great intentions when I first started my blog.  Although as you can see... life has been more important than a blog.  One reason why I started this was for myself.  I thought that if I had to post a menu every week on here it would force me to make and stick to my menu here at home.  Again... that hasn't happened either.

This week this was my menu (which as you will see I didn't stick to, but that's because I got the flu... so I guess that's an ok excuse!):

Monday- Quick Meal- Chicken Pattie and French Fries
Tuesday- Chicken Tortilla Soup (Recipe below)
Wednesday- Honey Ham Slice, Burssel Sprouts, Buttered Noodles, and Baked Beans
Thursday- Burritos (kit in a box)
Friday- Pork and Sauerkraut with Mashed Potatoes

Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe
I found this in a recipe book a few years ago and have adapted it to my family's taste!! 
P.S. This is my husbands favorite meal!!

2 small cans Cream of Chicken Soup
1 soup can of water
1 can of Black Beans, rinsed
1 bag frozen corn
1/2 jar Salsa, medium or mild (2-3 cups)
1 lb. chicken breast cut into small pieces
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Bag of Tortilla Chips

Add soup, water, beans, corn, salsa and chicken to crockpot on low for 4 hours or until chicken is cooked.  15 mins before serving stir in 1 1/2 cups of cheese.  Portion out soup and sprinkle cheese on top.  Serve with chips.  Enjoy!!

Chicken Turnovers... YUM!

Here is what I made last night. It's super easy and really good. Even my husband like it.

3 oz. Cream cheese , softened
4 TBS. butter
2 c cooked chicken
Salt and pepper to taste
A few crushed croutons
2 TBS. milk
1 TBS. chopped onion
8 oz. can crescent rolls ( I use garlic butter flavored!!)

Blend cream cheese with 3 TBS. of melted butter until smooth. Add chicken, salt, pepper, milk and onion. Mix well and chill. Separate cressent rolls into 4 rectangles. Spoon meat mixture evenly between all 4 cressents. Pull all four corners of each cressent to top center and twist slightly. Brush 1TBS. of melted butter on top of each cressent and sprinkle with crushed croutons.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 mins. Enjoy!!

I made green beans and instand brown rice to accompany this yummy dish!!
