Menopausal, insomniatic, romantic, left handed,right brained & more than likely a bit ADD. Mother of two whom have left the nest.
I live in a little 90 something bungalow in a Historic district, with a heck of a commute to work (3blocks, all down hill.!!
Share my cozy home with 4 critters.Two dogs-Golden Retriever and Black lab & two Tuxedo kitties. They see fit to let me decorate however I choose and never question what's in the bags I bring home-unless it appears to be edible or squeaky.
The whole blog/art thingy started kind of by accident a couple years ago-it has just grown exponentially!Love it ALL,,women I've met, and trying new things! Not getting rich selling my creations, but again, it has grown exponentially and I have product in several shops in Washington-Too fun!
NOT doing Etsy right now, BUT if you see something you like, let me know, Happy to make something special.
Thanks for stopping by!
So, Yesterday? I was thinkin' it was White Chicken Chili time again! And ironically, my Blogfriend Donna from Brynwood Needleworks posted a recipe she received from a friend,that sounds absolutely divine!! (With creme and sour creme and cheddar cheese) Yeah well I could pretty much just eat those 3 ingredients and be in heaven already!) And I'd love to try it,,,but being my waistline is already large enough,,,for now I think I'll stick to mine!
But first off? I proceeded to burn myself while cooking the onions and peppers and then ya know those $30 can openers you buy at some Pampered Chef party, because you felt like you had to buy something??? Well,,,,yeah, not working so good. Okay, not at ALL! SO?
I pulled out the old one that I think I've had since I gave birth to my first child, (Which was the START of the demise to my waistline,,,but I'll save that for another day) and that darn thing nearly broke my wrist!! So much for "Pinning" anything tonite because it still hurts like the Dickens!! (Who IS Dickens anyway,,,,,,,)
So,, Now that I've shared my pain,,,,Here's the darn White Chicken Chili, which I've posted the last two Autumn's But it is great for this time of year!,,,,,,the recipe is EASY, as long as you keep your fingers away from hot surfaces and have a good can opener,,,,,I'm just sayin.......
Stuff you'll need,,,,
Appx 6 cups of cooked Chicken ( I buy a deli chicken pre cooked) skinned and diced
One large Onion Chopped
2 Green Peppers, Cubed
2-4 Garlic cloves,,,minced
One Quart Chicken Broth (I use Organic)
Salt, (I use Sea Salt)
Fresh Ground Pepper OR White Pepper if you already have it
Cumin 1/2 Teaspoon
Ground Clove 1/2 Teaspoon
Chili Powder to Taste,,,I usually use about 1/2 Teaspoon,,but be careful, some of these are a lot more potent than others,,,,but if you like it HOT???.....
One small can MILD Green Chili Peppers (These are NOT hot, just add "Tang"
3 cans GREAT Northern Beans (DO not Drain)
1 Can Garbanzo Beans
Monterey Jack Cheese, Shredded*
Take all that stuff and,,,,,,,
Put the chopped onion, green peppers, and garlic in a BIG Soup Pot with a Tablespoon or two of Canola oil, add a pinch of Salt,,,lightly brown....
Everything Else Except the Cheese........Simmer for Several hours: Done!
Easy right? Especially if you didn't have to cook the Chicken,,,I don't think you save any money when you do it yourself,,but YOUR choice!! Sometimes I Splurge and buy Organic Chicken Breasts,,,but it is more work....
You can do one of TWO things with the Cheese,,,add 3 cups shredded right before you serve to a large group,,,,(It makes it really creamy) and you can still add it all even if you are NOT going to eat it all......
But it burns easier when you reheat it with all that Cheese,,,and if you add it "as you eat" you can control the Fat intake.
I've shown it here with a side of Organic Whole grain Corn Chips and Paul Newman's Salsa,,,but you can create a "bigger spread" with Guac, Sour Creme, etc.....This makes about 14 Cups,,,so you can freeze and pull out and enjoy as you'd like!
Bon Appetite! (I'd forgotten the Mild Chilies when I started making this, so Shell's got a new Can opener now for the Low low price of $6.99)

"Last night, my kids and I were sitting in the living room and I said to them, 'I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependant on some machine & fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug.'
They got up, unplugged the computer and threw out my wine!
They are SO on my sh*t list!'"
Seemed like a good ideat at the time

Is this a BAD sign?
It's a Full moon tonight and my son brought over takeout Chinese food. Should I take it as a BAD sign that my dog ate MY fortune cookie,,,,fortune and all???
Decided I'd love the Job!
Ever thought about applying for the job to be the one who gets to design the new words that we type into the security code boxes to get our posts through?
I think it would be a whoot! I think my first word would be geebitz or whrylstra or bezanorz.
What would YOU dream up?
