Ranch Chicken WonTon

Do you need a dish to add to your New Year's Eve snacks???  There Ranch Chicken WonTon thingys are a STAPLE at our house on New Year's Eve!!!

1-2 pds of chicken breast (no bone)
Bottle of Ranch dressing
Packet of WonTon wrappers
whatever goodies you want to put in them.  We put shredded cheese, green onions, bacon & black olives!  But I only put the black olives on mine cuz DH doesn't like olives (he's strange like that LOL!!!)

Boil the chicken, shred & mix with the ranch dressing.  How much ranch dressing you use is all to don't want them way runny but not to dry either.

Take a regular sized muffin pan & spray with Pam.  Put the WonTon wrappers in & form them to the sides of the muffin holder things (what are those called???).  Bake @ around 375 for 10-15 mins.

Once out of the oven, spoon the chicken into wonton & add whatever toppings you want.  Then put them back in the oven for 5ish mins.  Pretty much just til the cheese is melted!!!

I make these up & we snack on them all night!!!  LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!

Christmas Gifts

This year CHRISTmas in our house is going to be alittle different!!  We haven't decorated, haven't bought any gifts that have to be wrapped, haven't had to stress out about shopping & spending money we don't have.  Didn't get up & go Black Friday shopping (which has been a tradition for YEARS)!  We haven't done any of the wordly things that mean CHRISTmas!!!

It's not that we are being Mr. & Mrs. Scrooge!!!  That's not it at all!!

We have choosen this year to remember the true meaning of CHRISTmas!!! 

There was a gift that was given to us many many many moons ago!!  Our Lord and Savior decided to lower himself to come down to this earth to DIE FOR US!!!  You know HE knew how everything was gonna play out!!  He is Omniscient!!  HE knew HE was gonna have a horrible death, be placed on the cross & be persecuted his whole life for ME!!! 

"For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life"

Without the birth that we will celebrate in a few days there never would have been a death!!! 

So this year for CHRISTmas the only gift that will be under our pretend tree (cuz we don't have one up remember) is little ol me!  A gift to my Lord, who came to this horrible earth & died so I could live today!!  A gift of thanksgiving to HIM.  I'll be living my life looking up to HIM and saying thank you for all that you've done for me!!!! 

My song for today!!!

New Game

                                   Hoss got a new toy!!!!! 

See the little holes.......treats get put in there & the yellow cups get put in the holes.  He is smart enough now to pick the cups up & get the treats!!!  And THEN he spins the top of the toy & gets more treats!!! 

He LOVES it!!!  Loves it so much that after 2 or 3 times of getting all the treats out this is what happens.......

                                 Daddy falls asleep!!!!!!

Is it OCD that I have a white board in my bedroom that I write things down on that need to get done over the week!!  And is it bad that it makes me feel good to mark the things off???

Or is it worse that decorations has been on the board for 3 weeks now & I STILL HAVEN'T done any CHRISTmas decorating yet??  And ummm CHRISTmas is less than 2 weeks away????

Thursday, December 8, 2011


Today I am going to give my ALL in everything I do!!

That includes relationships, being a wife, being a homemaker, my prayers, my reading of the Bible, work, EVERYTHING I do!!

Giving your all isn't the easiest thing to do!!  I'm a multi-tasker so giving my all is going to require me to concentrate on 1 thing at a time.  To slow down & only think of what I'm working on at that time. 

This will be challenging for me but I'm up to it!!!!!

Day 3

Day 3 of my giving season was given to my DH!!!  We had an appointment yesterday morning that yes I really didn't HAVE to be at but went to support him.  Cuz this process is kinda scary & he needed his goofball wife to be there for him!  I went into work for just a few hours then came home & spent time with him & Hosser!!  We had a nice dinner of homemade veggie soup & PB Sandwiches.  Just a quiet nice at the house....anything to destress after a crazy, stressfull day.

So that was my day 3!!!!

Giving Season Day 2 cont....

So I'm a goofball & forgot to get back online last night & tell you how day 2 finished up!!!

Why did I forget....cuz I left work, picked Hoss up from doggie daycare, ate a snack @ home, went to church, went to the grocery store (for 2 houses might I add), went to the gas station, swung thru & picked up dinner, dropped groceries off @ 1 house, came home with my groceries, ate dinner, did laundry, finished up the goodies for a party tonight, packed for the party tonight, got Hoss to finally lay down , watched 20 mins of the UNC basketball game.....GO HEELS!!  Kept the woodstove cranking cuz it was really really really cold outside & finally crashed!!! 

And I just now remembered I didn't finish telling ya'll how yesterday went!!

So my first thought got shot down.....I moved it on down the list of things I could give.  MIGHT try again another day!!

So the rest of the day I gave kind words to EVERYONE I crossed paths with.  The guy at the grocery store that looked CRAZY cuz I'm sure his wife asked him to pick up a few things & he didn't know where half of them where (atleast that's what I think happened) I said Hi to & smiled at him.  Then offered him my buggy before he dropped the eggs LOL!!  The lady at the convenience store I opened the door for & said have a good night.  The kid behind the counter at the store I talked to probably alittle too long cuz I think DH got alittle impatient!!!  Just talked to everyone!!!  It did make my night go alittle smoother & not seem so crazy!  I felt a whole lot lighter as I ran back to the other side of the store cuz I forgot a Diet Sundrop!!  And if you know our grocery store you'll understand the 2 mile walk that occurs from one side to the other!!!! LOL!!!  It really wasn't a big deal because that meant more people I could talk to & more people that I could spread alittle sunshine too!!!

Did you give anything yesterday to someone?????
