A Perfect Day of Food

Another awesome blogger who is also my bff posted a Perfect Day of Food post.  Think of it as a last day of meals vs. just one.  Oh, and calories don't count.  Now this is a menu plan I can get behind and I'm pretty sure I'm ignoring the time frame too and taking all 24 gluttonous hours into account.

I know I have probably consumed this many calories on a day, but not with this type of quality behind it.  And yes, I know I shouldn't eat right before bed.

Here's my gluttonous list...

Breakfast:
  • My Christmas Day Casserole is a sausage and leek casserole from FoodTv's couple the Neelys
  • Fresh Fruit
  • Pancakes & a 1/2 gallon of Strawberry OJ from Yolk.
  • Also I'll need a 1/2 gallon of OJ from the Orange Ring in Haines City, FL off Rte. 27.  Tear that I'll probably never get this again
AM Snack:
  • A chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie...you know for the protein
Lunch:
  • A deli club the size of Texas on a crossiant with ham, cheddar, mayo, dijon, bacon, turkey, and lettuce with a crisp pickle spear
  • Some kettle chips w/dill dip
  • Lemonade from Chick-Fil-A, a who am I kidding, I'll take a nugget kids meal too
PM Snack:
  • Chips and Salsa from Abuelo's.  Nothing Special but I love that stuff
  • kettle corn popcorn
  • big ol' Coca-Cola
Dinner:
  • A perfectly seasoned filet mignon with steamed broccoli and asparagus
  • Twice Baked Potato with cheesy goodness
  • A small yet, satisfying serving of my grandmother's Chicken Divane
  • Dessert is my husband's grandmother's apple pie al a mode
  • A glass of white wine
Bedtime Snack:
Lucky Charms


I'm sure I'll think of a hundred more things after I post this, but what is on your list?

Halloween!

I realized I never updated my Halloween Pictures.


My little guys were just adorable this Halloween and boy did they haul in the treats.

Alex dressed up as Spider Man for trick-or-treating at preschool and had a great time going around the classrooms getting goodies.

For actual trick-or-treating, Alex went as a fireman and Cameron went as his faithful companion, a dalmatian.  I have to pat myself on the back for decorating the wagon up as a fire truck. 

I liked getting into the spirit of the season.  It is such a let down when the trick-or-treaters that do come around have no costumes or manners :(

Good thing I got this up before the next holiday!


Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken

I love spicy Buffalo Chicken and this tasty recipe was a snap to make.














I found this on Pinterest originating from here but below is my own variation and recommendations.

Ingredients:
3-4 Chicken Breasts (I used fresh)
Franks Red Hot Sauce (regular or buffalo)
Dried Ranch Dressing Mix
2-3 tbsp. butter

Preparation
Place Chicken in Slow Cooker
Pour approx. 1/2 bottle of sauce on top
1/4 to 1/2 of the dressing mix.  (I used 1/2 and found it to be too salty)

Cook on low for 6-8 hours

Shred up the chicken, add more sauce or a little water if necessary, but the chicken will shred up perfectly.
Put butter on top for about 15 more minutes, stir and then serve

**I think adding a little cream cheese to this recipe also might be a nice addition, but I'd melt that in the slow cooker prior to adding the chicken**

This is so yummy and very versatile to serve with anything.  I especially love it mixed in a cool salad with a little ranch dressing.  With the Super Bowl coming up too this would be a…

Pirate Party Game - Ring Toss

Why didn't I think of this?!  I came across this from Hostess with the Mostess site, my go-to party planning inspiration blog.  What an awesome game and pretty inexpensive if you were a savvy shopper and picked up the pirate hooks for $1 at Target along with some swim diving rings also in the $1 spot.

This would've been perfect for Alex's 4th Birthday Pirate Party where we played "Pin the Hook on Captain Hook".
