Pizza Chicken Bake

This is a super easy, quick whip up type meal that people will think you’ve been slaving over all day. It’s essentially a scrumptious pizza, with thinly sliced chicken breast in place of the crust.

Start by thinly slicing 4 chicken breasts into filets. Cook them in a skillet until they are no longer pink inside.

Arrange the cooked chicken in a 9×13 Pyrex pan. Cover the chicken with 1 cup pizza sauce.

Sprinkle about a cup of shredded Mozerella over the chicken. Arrange 2 oz sliced pepperoni on top.

Bake, uncovered at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

Serve nice and hot so the cheese will be all melty.

Goes well with garlic bread and salad.

You ow me big.

Friendly Fireside

On an evening like this, it would have easy to take a  picture of the beautiful night sky with all the stars shining—or take a close up of the gooey marshmallows roasting over the fire.

To be honest, it never occurred to me.

I was way too busy watching all these dear,


happy people doing what we always do….

…just being together.

Family really does make for the best of friends.

Second Attempt At Sourdough

I solemnly swear, I’m going to figure this sourdough bread thing out, if it’s the last thing I do. I’ve watched every video, and read every article I can get my hands on. So I really should be an expert by now…in SPIRIT anyway. This was my second attempt and it was only ok. Please note there are no pictures from my first go around. It was…ahem… pretty dreadful. This one was too heavy and wet inside. Not right at all.
I’ll try again and see if I can get a loaf that is just what it ought to be. Fingers crossed. Fingers crossed.
The bright side is that if I never figure it out it will be fine. I hear there’s a Kneader’s going up just down the street.
Buying sourdough to support a local business would kind of make me a hero. Right?
Heh, heh.

Nearly Summer Snow

A few days ago we woke up to some crazy rain. I mean, like torrents of rain.  For 4 or 5 minutes it even turned to hail. I was amazed that it wasn’t even all that cold outside…just wet. We found this odd pile of hail in one spot on the lawn that must have slid off the roof or something.

ANYway, the best part of all this moisture is…

what it does to our mountains.


Not bad for nearly June–right?

Memorial Monday

Sincerely, I know what Memorial Day is all about. I do. We ALWAYS take flowers to our sweet family at the cemeteries, whether or not they were Veterans and even though none of them died in a war. This year we did it on Saturday before actual Memorial Day. I forgot to take pictures. Sorry.

We did, however have a lovely barbecue so that we could just…you know…play.

We’re pretty good at that play stuff.

New to our game repertoire  was a corn hole set. It works well for a bit but then the littles wanted to wear it on their backs like a hero cape and run around the yard saving people. Slightly scary.

There was a soccer ball flying throughout the evening…

because pretty much everyone who is anyone (the kids, anyway) have played or are playing or will be playing– soccer.

So it was just a natural thing for all of them to see a ball and kick it!!

Someone brought a sticky target game…

that was also a hit. No pun intended.

Some of the kids created their own games or traded Pokemon cards.

We had hair braiding and chalk painting…

…hanging  inside the monkey bar thingy…

and lighting charcoal snakes!! I love those!

Also new to our game day was an extra large Connect Four.

Even the little kids played with it…

when the big kids were done–of course!!

There was, of course the fabulous barbecue food–but I didn’t pay too much attention to that–picture wise because….well, because…

eating takes two hands.

Heh, heh.

Happy Memorial Day everyone!!!
