PM Week #1: Taco Wontons

Last night's meal was Taco Wontons and Spanish rice. I liked this one!  It was very sinple! Just seasoned beef in a wonton with freshly grated cheddar cheese on top!  It only  baked for 9 minutes, too! It would have been a lit faster if I had remembered to thaw the meat first. :)

Next time I might add a little less beef and put some smashed black beans on top! Yum! Tonight is the last Pinterest meal for this week.  Crock pot tomato basil Parmesan soup!

PM Week #1: Buffalo Chicken Cupcakes

Last night's meal was Buffalo Chicken Cupcakes. You can find the recipe at that link. 

It wasn't bad!  It tasted like hot wings in a way.  Next time I will be doing a few things differently, though.  The recipe calls to roll up the dough with the chicken mixture and cheese like you do cinnamon rolls.  Yeah, that didn't happen.  The chicken was so hot it made the dough super soft and it was NOT rolling!  I ended up just taking handfuls and stuffing it in the muffin pan. I'll probably put the dough in the muffin pan first next time, and then spoon the mixture in. 

I was able to use extra mozzarella cheese and chopped up onion from the creamy tomato soup I made the night before!

PM Week 1: Creamy Tomato Soup and Mozzarella Balls

Pinterest Meals Week 1, day 1 was Creamy Tomato Soup and Baked Mozzarella Panko Balls.

Nick came home from a weekend of flying saying he was starving, so I got started cooking and completely forgot to take pictures throughout cooking like I had planned.  I did remember to snap a few before I tried it.  

This recipe was very easy and pretty quick, too.  I really enjoyed it, and I think Nick did, as well  (Tanner did, too). I'm actually looking forward to having the left overs for lunch, and if you know me super well at all (I'm looking at you, Nick) that's a huge thing.  I don't usually like left overs.  

SO good! Tonight I'm making Buffalo Chicken Cupcakes! I'll try to remember to snap pictures as well. :)

Pinterest Meals Week #1

I have a a ton of delicious sounding recipes pinned.  They just sit there.  I haven't really tried a bunch yet.  So this week I am going to try to change that.  I have 4 meals planned for the next 4 days, all recipes I have found on Pinterest.  So I am going to challenge myself to review these recipes, take pictures, and blog them.  I'm not promising good pictures, because it's gotten 10xs harder to cook now when I have a little boy trying to pull down my pants.  Or pulling the cookie sheets and cutting boards out of the drawers and covering the kitchen floor with them.

This week's meals will be:

Monday night: Buffalo Chicken Cupcakes and french fries

Tuesday night: Taco Wontons, spanish rice, and corn on the cob

Winter ONEderland

Up until yesterday I was completely okay not throwing Tanner a birthday party.  I thought, he's only going to be a year old, he won't remember anyway.  But for some reason yesterday inspiration, and excitement hit me.  I'm now thinking, yes he is turning a year old, and it's his very FIRST birthday   Why wouldn't I throw him a party?

So I've been on Pinterest gathering up some ideas.  I am so excited about it!  The theme will be Winter ONEderland.  

I've got the menu, desserts, drinks, and decorations planned.  Now to figure out how to make his invitations in photoshop.  And what kind of cake to make.

10 months old! Photo dump!

How is it possible that my baby is already 10 months old? I'm still having a hard time believing he ever turned 6 months old!  Double digits.  Bittersweet.

 We attempted the monthly glider picture, but he really wasn't having it.  So we went outside! It was beautiful out!  The cool weather has arrived! (Which means the bitter cold will be here in a few weeks...thanks, Oklahoma)

He loved watching the birds fly.

Waving to daddy!
