A Picture That Made a Proud Momma Tear Up....

Little Man had his Cub Scout Pack going away BBQ this weekend. I took a few group shots of them all and then as I turned around I heard one little boy say "Group goodbye hug!" All of them grabbed Ethan and gave him a huge hug goodbye (Little Man is that teeny tiny sliver of blue shirt on the right). I snapped this as it was happening. 

He's going to miss them so much.

Family Recipe: Pudding Things

Simple name huh? Not entirely sure how it got its name or if its just a made up thing with a really simple name (as its pudding) but I think its funny.

Tall Guy's family makes these all the time. Christmas, Sunday breakfasts or just because. So the other morning he made these for breakfast. And they were super delicious! Not only are they delicious but they are super simple. The only disclaimer I give is that they are very filling and very rich. So while that plate shows 4, I was only able to eat like 3.5. Which yes, holy crap 3.5. But once you get going, you can't stop! LOL

Recipe after the pictures! Enjoy!

Closet Cookings: Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Popper Chicken

Just like Pioneer Woman's recipes, I have yet to make a recipe on Closet Cooking's site that I didn't like. Their flavors are amazing, their recipes are delicious. Great website! 

Tuesday was my birthday (big ole 2-8, getting old!). So for dinner, Tall Guy made me Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Stuffed Chicken Breasts. I've had this a couple times with him making it and each time its amazing. This time he actually remembered to season the chicken breasts! The jalapeno's were sliced a tad larger then before too. We tried to have baked potatoes with it but we ended up buying bigger ones so they needed about 2 hours to cook, yes cooking fail. So this picture, via my phone, doesn't even begin to do it justice! 

Its so delicious I had leftovers for breakfast the next day! 

Recipe below!
