Sticking to it, kind of :|

Oh, my! I need to stick to my new year's resolutions and do better about getting at least a few blog posts in a week.  I have not totally stuck to my resolutions so far but I'm definitely trying.  I have made 2 new recipes this month so far.  Okay, so I didn't exactly make anything spectacular but me putting effort into anything that isn't just tossed in the microwave is a big step for me. (In case you haven't paid attention before, I DON"T cook.)  

It's been a little hard for me to stick to my daily reading.  Sometimes I'm just so tired and when I put myself to bed I'm just ready to sleep.  I want to read 2 books a month but I'm still on the first book and the month is quickly coming to an end.  I have a day off this Friday so maybe I will wrap up in a blanket, put my feet under my ma'am to keep them warm and get lost in the words of Lauren Conrad. (Love her!)  

I've been pretty good about putting money away in my envelopes.  So far I have put some back for Christmas, birthdays and vacations.  I really want to find something neat to put them in and not just a boring ol' white envelope.  I found something in a magazine that I think will work but it just doesn't have enough "slots" for my categories.  I may need to purchase it anyways because it's way cute.

I hope you are sticking to your resolutions or at least trying.

Happy last week of January,


This is not one of the recipes but I wanted to share with you my new dessert that I made up.  It's like an ice cream sundae without the ice cream (calories)
Zach Rowell said it looked gross but it's actually really good. 
Oranges (Cuties)
Low fat chocolate syrup
low fat whipped cream
Give it a try, you might really like it!

 I discovered these last week in the Valentine's Day aisle at Wal*Mart.  They are soooo good if you like cherry flavored candy and jelly beans.  They won my heart!

I found this recipe in Woman's World magazine (have I mentioned how much I LUV this magazine)
If you like Rib Crib's Smokin' Chicken Nachos then you will like this simple recipe.

What do you need.....
Tortilla Chips
BBQ Sauce (any flavor but I like the honey)
Sour Cream (optional)
Chives (optional)

(I like to use this Tyson's Grilled & Ready chicken and cut it up in little pieces.)

spray cookie sheet
spread chips out
mix together chicken and BBQ sauce and pour over chips
sprinkle cheese on top
bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes
add chives and sour cream 

I've eaten this at least 5 times in the last 2 weeks. :)

  1. Yay for a new blog post from Mrs. Rowell :)

    .....and, your nachos look super yummy. As in, I will probably have to eat some this week!

    ....and, I'm off on Friday, too! You might have just convinced me that I need to have a lazy "me" day as well. Thanks for the idea!


Thanks for making my day and stopping by!
