Hello Bloggers!
Hope everyone is having a great week so far

I am getting so geeked about the Hunger Games!
The books are incredible if you have not read them yet.

The movie is all set to come out MARCH 23rd
Thats in just a couple weeks

On a sidenote...I found this hilliarious picture on pinterest and I started cracking up...

So stinkin adorable!

I decided to give up TV for LENT.
Ash Wednesday was this week so I have only been without TV for a couple days.
On the otherhand I didnt realize how much downtime I spent watching TV.
I repainted the door to our house yesterday just because I was bored and needed something to do.
AHH...I wonder how many other projects will get done with this time

Do you guys remember the movie "Heavyweights?" About a bunch of kids at fat camp?

The movie was getting a little dull so I was looking up some of these characters on IMDB.
The main character is a total hottie now.
Talk about ugly ducking to swan...hubba hubba

Thats all for now.
If you think of interesting projects for me to do in my free time during this lent season...let me know :)

Reuben Dip

Hope everyone is having an amazing week.
I hope everyone is starting to think about how they are going to surprise their special someone.
The hub's and I are going to a dinner theatre with two other couples.
Should be a good time.
Plus we have a long standing tradition about buying each other a special outfit.
I pick his cloths and he will pick out a dress for me.
It's really special because I know that even if it's not my style that he loves it.

I thought I would tell you guys about this amazing little gem that I made for the Superbowl
Its called "Reuben dip."
If you like Reuben sandwiches then you will love this dip.

1.5 lbs of corned been and have the deli shave it thin
8 slices of Swiss or about a 1/2 lb of cheese
Bottle of thousand Island Dressing

tear up pieces of corned beef and fill the entire pan
Top with drained kraut
cover generously with thousand island dressing
Layer pieces of Swiss cheese over entire top of dish

Chicken Noodle Cassarole

Hope you all are enjoying your week so far!
tommorrow is friday...TGIF
I thought I would hop on and share a delicious recipe that I recently made.
It was even a sucess with the hubby and he is pretty picky.
It was not too difficult either.
I found this little gem on pinterest where I find all things amazing.
I will tell you that this easily will feed 4-6.
I made if just for the two of us and I ate left overs for three days.
The good news is that on day three is was still just as good.
The best park is I think you could make up this cassarole and freeze it and then just cook it when you are ready to have a dinner with the family.

4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (I used three whole brest and cut them in half)
2 tablespoons oil (for frying)
6 ounces egg noodles
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 (10-75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
1 cup sour cream
salt and black pepper (to taste)
1-2 cups shredded Colby jack cheese
1 cup crumbled buttery round crackers
½ cup butter

Step 1: Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Add oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts and cook, turning once until fully cooked (the internal temperature has reached 165 degrees) and golden brown on both sides. Remove from the pan and allow to cool. Cut chicken into small pieces. Set aside.
Step 2: Cook egg noodles according to package directions and drain. Set aside. In a large bowl mix together cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, and sour cream. Season with salt and pepper. Add egg noodles and chicken to the sauce mixture. Gently stir together. Place into a lightly greased 2 quart baking dish.
Step 3: Melt butter in a small sauce pan and remove from heat. Stir in crumbled crackers. Top the casserole with shredded Colby jack cheese and buttery crackers. Place into the oven and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until heated through and browned on top.
Check it out and let me know what you think :)

Have a great Friday everyone
