Hey, know what’s exciting? Well I was checking out stats earlier today and I saw that someone came to my blog after googling “pioneer woman chicken enchilada soup”. I was like: WHAAAAT? So I googled it to see where I landed. You know, like on page 17 and this person was a crazy googler or something. But lo-and-behold, well just see for yourself:
Ha, my enchilada soup comes up BEFORE hers. How cool is that?! (Nevermind that the second picture of the shredded chicken or whatever is from her site. But the finished product – I’m there!) First page. Seventh picture (yes, I counted).
Want to make it? Its pretty dang good. Here’s a link:
Chicken Enchilada Soup :: by cameraLinz
So its May.
Its kinda my favorite month. My birthday is in May, lilacs & iris bloom, I get to plant my garden and dig in the dirt, there are thunderstorms, usually it warms up and there’s no more snow (although snow is in the forecast for later this week!), we can start cooking outside, you know – its SPRING!
So I thought it would be a great day to share these fun butterfly pictures. Our middle boy found this pretty one in our yard. It wasn’t able to fly anymore.
We took turns holding it and then placed it in the flowering tree.
P.S. – Hi, nice to see you again. What’s it been… 2 months since I posted anything? So much for that 365-post-a-day project for this year! Oh well, I’ll try not to be such a stranger though.
Chicken ‘n Noodles (a recipe for this will come)
I made my own noodles. A feat that is really quite simple (especially with the kitchen aide now!) but it makes me proud because its kind of a big deal. I think its funny because to my family it is an all day affair.
Mixing up the flour & eggs. Rolling them out. Cutting them. Leaving them to sit ALL day long. Then there’s the potatoes – peeling, chopping, boiling. And the chicken – boiling, shredding.
But in my husband’s family this takes his mom mere minutes to put together! Everything she does is fast (and delicious too). Ok, well I guess boiling the chicken and making the mashed potatoes probably takes a similar amount of time. But its the noodles – she’s willing to put them in the chicken broth to cook right after she’s rolled them out and cut them up.
I split the difference. My noodles dried out for about 2 hours. I rolled them thin and cut them pretty small.
The result? Perfection.
After clicking these pictures my middle boy wanted in on the action -
This was his money shot:
I see a food blog in somebody’s future! Makin’ his momma proud.
