Pillsbury Doughboy

Sunday, June 13, 2010

My Mother in Law sent me this... lets all take a min and remember. You will be missed dough boy!

Sad News….

Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment community. The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and trauma complications from repeated pokes to the belly. He was 71.

Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and Captain Crunch. The grave site was piled high with flours.

Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded. Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He was not considered a very smart cookie as he wasted much of his dough on half-baked schemes. Despite being a little flaky at times, he still was a crusty old man and was considered a positive roll model for millions…

Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough, three children: John Dough, Jane Dough, and Dosey Dough, plus they had one in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart.

The funeral was held at 3:50 and ran about 20 minutes.

The Fill You Up Chicken Sandwhich

Tuesday, June 8, 2010

Okay well if you've ever eaten with me and my family you would know that my hubby has a bottomless Pit for a stomach! I joke that he has a tape worm (simply because he eats like crazy and is SUPER skinny) I think my little guy is going to be the same way as well. He can eat eat eat... he eats about as much as I do and I'm eight months prego!!! So I am always trying to make filling meals that are also jam packed full of flavor (while on a budget... oye)!!!

So today I was going through my fridge I had thawed to large chicken breasts but was in the mood for a sandwhich.... hmmm delema... So I cleaned the breasts of all fat (i HATE fat) and then felleted them in half (to make four thin breasts). I grilled them on our flat skillet with garlic then I cooked up four eggs over medium after flipping them I put a piece of American cheese that melted while the egg cooked. Then i toated 8 pieces of bread and 8 pieces of bacon....

We all sat down at the table and assembled out sandwhiches.... (I cut little man's after I put it together so it would be easier to eat) Tom put a little Mayo on his (he likes MAYO) but after the assembly if you squish it the yoke pops and coats everything so nicely in the sandwhich it was anything but dry, which was awesome for me considering I HATE mayo! Tom ate two of them and me and little man each ate one. Afterwards we where STUFFED and totally satisfied.

Here are some things i thought we could change dependant on if you wanted to make it for breakfast or lunch...

breakfast changes, make it on a bagle (yea you can eat chicken for breakfast haven't you ever seen the chicken biscuits at McDonalds? i think it's a southern thing)

lunch changes, add lettuce, tomatoe's, and either sliced avocado or smashed avacodo then cut up the bacon and put it in the avacodo to make an avacado bacon spread...

Well if you get a chance to try it i hope you do it was awesome!

a weekend of dip

Monday, May 31, 2010

Okay so I have one new recipe and one new creative way to make Guac both due to my weekend with the In-Laws. You see there is nothing better then sitting beside the pool and enjoying Chips and Dip. Salsa (although I LOVE SALSA) while I am pregnant is very disheartening to eat. Sad but true it gives me heartburn like no one could believe. However Guacamole does not (weird i know but maybe it's the Avocado to Salsa ratio that's got me okay with it). I have been also looking for a refreshin dip for hot summer days and on Sat while me and my M.I.L. (Mother in Law) relaxed by the pool we enjoyed some salsa and chips, well Little Tommy decided that he would join in (he's a dipper) and it started getting to hot for him but he wanted it any way (he was pretty much breathing FIRE) my M.I.L. went inside and made "Tommy's Dip" named after my son cause he pretty much JUST eats the dip and no chips, cracker or pretzel's (yes we tried alot of different things and he would scoop it and suck the dip off). Needless to say it was extrememly scrumptious so here are two Dip idea's

Creamy Gauc (Now if you already make something like this don't get mad at me i'm always brain storming and we where talking about sour cream so just bare with me lol)

2 Avacados
1/4 Cup Sour Cream
1/2 Salsa

Mash avacados mix in sour cream and salsa... YUM... I will post pics later this week

Tommy's Dip
1/4 Cup Sour Cream
Dill and Season salt to Taste (salt and pepper if you like)
(easy and delish)

BBQ Sauce

Friday, April 16, 2010

So I made BBQ sauce for the first time the other night at work, I thought it turned out fabulous and even though only ones person ate it (everyone else ate food given to the station by a retirement party), I was told it was very yummy! Also when I went outside to grill my ribs the professionals at the retirement party (they brought their own smoker) said my sauce smelled awesome and asked where I bought it from!

(I even signed my sauce i guess you could call it a signature sauce ;D)

My Reasons

So this blog is all about my love of cooking and being in the Kitchen all together I'll be posting pictures of my triumphs, and different things that I love to have in my kitchen and use in general! Who knows maybe it will help someone else out along the way!!! Enjoy and happy cooking!
