I am finally back home! Yippeee. It has been a busy two weeks and I had to use yesterday to get caught back up around here. Sweeping, mopping, dusting, wiping down...the such of life.
So what do I wanna share with you? Humm, how about a lot of lil triva?
Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno Chicken Bites
Prep time: 20 mins Cook time: 10 mins Total time: 30 mins Serves: 16 bite-sizes
Chicken spread with cream cheese and jalapenos, rolled and wrapped with bacon, then grilled.
8 chicken tenders, flattened and cut in two
3-ounce package softened cream cheese
1 can of jalapeno peppers
8 slices bacon, cut in half
Dab 1/2 teaspoon (more or less) of cream cheese on top of each chicken tender. Add one pepper slice over cream cheese. Fold or roll chicken to enclose cream cheese mixture. Wrap each roll with one piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Grill until bacon is brown and crispy on both sides.
Be sure to wear plastic gloves when handling jalapenos. The oil will attach itself to your hands and is not easily washed away. An inadvertent swipe of the hand close to your eyes could be an unforgettable experience. Turkey bacon is also leaner. Try flattening meat inside a zip-lock bag as pictured above. No flying pieces, no contamination on your cutting board from the chicken, and cleanup is super easy.
I have two new pair of glasses from two different companies. One pair came from Coastal Contacts and the other pair from Eye Buy Direct. I loved Coastal Contacts for the quick service and for me getting what I asked for. But I could never find a way to order my glasses with a prism on them that I needed. Eye Buy Direct was forever long, several issues to get them completed and had to change the style due to the prism needed. But they did turn out as the right script I needed. And I find I really love the pink glasses best. What do you think is best?
These are from Eye Buy Direct. Gosh do you see all the gray hair showing up in my hair? EEEKS! Eye Buy Direct have a buy one get on 50% off til November 7th. These can be two different scripts too!
Coastal Contacts. Yeah this hides the gray better. Coastal Contacts is offering for you to get ANY frame AND lens upgrades for 50% off from now until October 30th with code SAVE50!
Krups facebook page. I love it of course. And that it has an oatmeal setting on it is even cooler for me! I am crazy for oatmeal as well as rice. And there was a recipe book included too. I can't wait to try some of the goodies listed in there. Dear Hubby wants me to do the Moroccan Lamb and Apricot Tagine soon. This uses the slow cook button on the cooker. And College Girl is just drooling over the steam button for her fresh veggies. Versatile? You bet you cookies it is. They just finished a giveaway for a milk frother too. I am waiting to see if I am twice as lucky. Of course I entered to win. Watch to see what they are doing next on facebook!
Oh and on Klout (your doing Klout right?) I had a sample of AXE Hold & Tough spiking glue sent to me. It smelled great but I have not tried it. I gave it to my future son-in-law for him to try out. I am waiting to see what he thinks about it. I know he loves AXE products. Klout is great for networking with you social networks and sharing with friends. And of course they have ways of trying out lil things here and there too with Kout Perks. You might just wanna join in the fun there!
Wait one more....look at these wonderful cups my friend from Ohio is sending to me. Aunt Rene showed them off on facebook for sale. I begged right off for them of course. Wouldn't you? Tracy.....Crazy Suburban Mom....eat your heart out!
Well what good things are happening to you? Share with me. Tell me as it always lifts my spirits to see the great ways life treats us good.
