Hi there

Hey friends! What's going on? Today's Groundhog Day, and Mason and I watched the live coverage in Punxsutawney, PA this morning. Have you seen the movie, Groundhog Day? That is one of our family favorites! Annabelle and I watched it on Tuesday while she was home with a cold...they do the groundhog scene just like in real life.
Anyway, I've been doing some more embroidery, in the cutest kitchen designs. Here's an example:
This is going to be a gift so I don't want to go into detail, but I'll show you the completed project when all is said and done.  Love me some stitching!
I tried out a new-to-me recipe from Gooseberry Patch yesterday, called Jalapeno Chicken Chilli. It was delicious! Here's the recipe from their facebook page:

Jalapeño-Chicken Chili

4 15.8-oz. cans Great Northern beans
2 c. chicken, cooked and cubed
1 onion, chopped
1/2 c. red pepper, diced
1/2 c. green pepper, diced
2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and finely diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1-1/2 t. ground cumin
1/2 t. dried oregano
3/4 t. salt
1/4 c. water
1/2 t. chicken bouillon granules
1 to 2 c. salsa

Stir together undrained beans and remaining ingredients except salsa; spoon into a slow cooker. Cover and cook on low setting for 8 to 10 hours, or on high setting for 5 hours. Add salsa during last hour. Before serving, stir well to blend. Serves 8.
Tonight I'm making Greek chicken pitas. It's so simple...just marinate a few chicken breasts in Greek marinade; bake and slice. Fill pitas with cucumber yogurt sauce (Mix plain yogurt, dill weed, lemon juice, salt and pepper),  feta cheese, Greek olives, lettuce tomato and the chicken...yum!
While food shopping today, I found the cutest jars of candy sticks...for just $1.99! Had to get a jar.
Hope you have a great day!

  3. Jen,
    Love your new piece you are stitching and can't wait to see it completed! The recipe sounds yummy and I love soups. The candy has my maiden name on it ... Hammond :)
    Have a wonderful weekend and hope everyone is better at your house!

  4. Groundhog day is one of my very favorite movies. I hated it the first time I saw it. I just couldn't grasp the concept in my desire for it to get to the end. But I love it and watch it often since then. Love the lemon sticks too! Fantastic.

  5. Here I am eating lunch while catching up with blogs that I follow and I'm getting hungrier reading those recipes. Have to try them.
