This was so good.

Chicken Sherry

• 4 cups cooked chicken breast, torn into large pieces
• 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
• Paprika for sprinkling
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch glass baking dish with cooking spray.
2. Stir together the soup, mayonnaise, sherry, and nutmeg. Layer half of the green beans into the prepared baking dish. Spread with half of the chicken, half of the sauce, and half of the Parmesan cheese; then repeat the layers. Sprinkle the top with a little paprika.
3. Bake in preheated oven until the Parmesan cheese has turned golden brown, and the casserole is hot, 45 to 60 minutes.

This Weeks Menu

I've been LAZY lately. Dinner hasn't been the best and eating out gets tiring real fast.

Monday - Chicken Sherry with Mashed Potatoes
Tuesday - Lasagna and Ceasar Salad
Wednesday - Arroz Con Pollo
Thursday - Shepards Pie (Happy Anniversary To Us, 4 years)
Friday - Going Out To Celebrate Anniversary.

Nothing to fancy, but cheaper than eating out and taste better too.

Great Things Coming Our Way

Today we received some really good news. My hubby starts a new job on Monday. We hit a really hard bump in the road and were really starting to get worried there for a minute. How long could this go on before we had to give up everything. Well today he was called to go in and test and turn in everything he needs to get started. He goes in Monday and starts his traing. More pay and more house. THANK YOU HEAVENLY FATHER. I'm not counting my chickens before the hatch but man this feels so good to know that we are gonna be okay. Oh to be able to breathe again ia wonderful thing. I love that man, and I know he does everything he can to make this family strong.

Stop Being Lazy

So today I did the most awful thing anybody can do. I kicked myself in the big ole but for it but was an eye opener. Of course, it was midday. I had already eaten breakfast and lunch so that contributed to it. LOL... HaHa, i weighed myself today. AAAAHHHHHH SCAREY !!! I kept it to myself because my hubby is sick of hearing me complain.
Well our day went on like normal. Kids fighting, Dad yelling, dogs barking and FOOTBALL.
After Ray J's football practice, he comes home and i'm told, the coach was him to start running. YESSSS, my opportunity. My poor son isn't much of a runner. He is really slow and flat foot. So I take this as an opportunity to get going and get off my fat butt and stop being lazy. We will be getting up at 6am and taking a job. Why so early, cuz this is Bakersfield and it's HOTTTT !!!!
Most people start their "diets" on Monday but not me. I'm gonna start my "get fit" program on THURSDAY. Wish me luck..
Starting weight.... HECK NO I"M NOT TELLING !!!

Working from home

I started working from home. Yes i've done those direct sales things in the past. I was a Gold Canyon Demonstrator. I wasn't happy with the commission, 25% didn't work out for me at all. I am a Passion Party consultant, I have been since August 2006. I do love it. But the downside, my calendar isn't as full as i'd like it. So i've been looking around. Something to keep me home and make some money, to help out a little.
I stumbled upon one, by pure luck really. My friend sent me a link to enter a give away. It was for a really cool bounce house. We love bounce houses so I entered of course. Well i didn't win, boooooo !!!. One of the entries said to friend them on facebook, so I did. Trying to get as many entries as I could, i really wanted this bounce house. 2 weeks after entering the giveaway this company posted that they were looking for someone to take calls for them. I responded of course. I'm good at sales, I love bounce houses, i'm a mommy and we need the money, so why not. After several interviews via email and one phone interview, I GOT THE JOB. I've been at it for 2 days now. It's so much fun. I never knew how many people were really interested in owning their own bouncer in their back yard. I love hearing about their families and how it would be so convenient. The best part so far, the goofy part on my end, I love the different accents.
Working from home is good, my babies are destroying my house while I work. LOL.

Summer Time ... Summer Time

Ooh it is getting hot. Today we were suppose to go out the 12th Annual Menudo Cook Off. It's this huge thing, where all mexicans get together and make what they call the best menudo.. of course none of them compares to my mom. Well The Menudo Cook Off is alot of fun. Several groups perform, they have flokorico dancers, Mariachi's, Jalapeno Eating Contest and An Ice Cream eating contest. So much food and beer of course. At the end of it all, you are full and some are drunk. Heat exhausted and filled with entertainment.. You don't even get menudo. LOL Well, we went last year and it was soooo much fun but hot. This year, we were going to attempt but summer time has hit Bakersfield.
Today's high was 96. Whew.. it was HOT !!. I woke up this morning at 4:30am because it was so uncomfortably hot. My babies woke up at 7 and were begging daddy to please set up their pool. We bought them a blow up pool yesterday.. at 8am they were outside swimming. I'm telling you it was HOTTTT !!
I've lived here all my life and I think this is gonna be a good one. Time to start filling my calendar with trips to the beach. PISMO HERE WE COME.
