Phone Dump Friday

Phone Dump Friday 

My two Sav's and I 

Dinner at Datz - Dad is 50! 

Never get tired of the view of our backyard.

Charlie girl and her new Frisbee.

Beautiful beach day - the only thing that would have made it better - not to have a stinking cold! 

Trying to feel better!

Beach Day!

My two favorite names!

Boat day!  Our captain jumping overboard.

Sav taking it easy!

I think Charlie girl weighs as much as Sav now!

 My little herb garden on the front porch!  Basil, Rosemary, Lemon Balm and Cilantro! 

Charlie girl is now 1 year old!

One for your family - one to share. Chicken Pot Pie

This is my all time favorite
comfort food
food to share with others
have probably delivered this meal 10 times just this year
family and friends 
sickness, babies and just because.

I love comforting people with food.
and hugs but we are talking food here.

Chicken Pot Pie

2 packages of deep dish pie crust
1 large can of light cream of chicken soup
1 small can of low sodium chicken broth
1 rotisserie chicken - I get mine from Sam's Club
1 can green peas
1 can of corn
1 can of potatoes
1 can of carrots (unless I'm making for my picky dad)
2 cups of cheddar cheese
1/2 cup fat free milk 
salt and pepper

De-bone the chicken
Throw it in a mixing bowl
Drain all the vegetables 
Mix all ingredients with the chicken

Divide the mixture in half
Pour half in one pie shell - cover with the second piece of dough
Pour the other half in the second pie shell - cover with the second piece of dough

Bake on 350 for about 45 minutes

Just that easy!

Your friends and family with thank you.


Oreo Birthday Cake, Cake Balls - quick and easy.

This is a quick and easy
fun recipe for a summer party
or just to eat 

1 package of birthday cake oreos
1 package of 8 oz cream cheese
1 package of melting chocolate

Put the oreos in a zip lock bag and crush - really really crush.
Put them in the mixer with the cream cheese.
(let the cream cheese soften a little first)
mix together.
I used a cookie scooper and put them on wax paper and then 
put them in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes until firm.
Melt the white chocolate 
Dip the cake balls in the white chocolate 
Add sprinkles of course
Put back in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Your guest will thank you - or your family, whichever the case may be.
