So, this page is dedicated to pins that I've tried and how they turned out... this is a DIY blog after all! ;) Just click the title of each "Pin-spiration" to find the tutorial/recipe/etc.
P.S. It looks a little dark here, but that's just because of the lighting when I took the picture. The walnut stain looks pretty rustic, which is exactly what we were going/hoping for! :)
NAILED IT! :)
- I used 1/2 a left-over rotisserie chicken, so I didn't have to cook chicken the night I made this dish. The chicken was $6 at Walmart, and I had previously used it to make a double batch of chicken noodle soup. That means I got THREE meals out of the $6 pre-cooked chicken. I think $2/meal is pretty awesome.
- It was YUMMY!
- It fed 4 adults and 2 kids, with enough left-over for two adult lunches!
She had fun telling me what she wanted to write, which included "I love watching your movies before bedtime!" and "My mommy reads me your stories!" :) Postcard received in about a month maybe!
She loved getting "princess mail"!
Overall, I think it was a little too "sour-creamy" for my tastes, but I don't like sour cream... but I still loved every bite I took! :) Also, I used a rotisserie chicken for the shredded chicken (and even saved some for a "kid lunch" of chicken quesadillas)... total costs for this meal(s) was around $15! Not too shabby. And, considering this recipe was added to our "Favorite Recipes" binder, I would say it was a success!
UPDATE: We made this recipe for our friends and they LOVED it! :) I even gave her my copy of the recipe. I did make a change the 2nd time around though; I added Paprika as an added, final step to making the sauce. I was pleasantly surprised that I didn't even taste the sour cream this time!! I think it still needs a little something to be more "Mexican flavored", but I'm not quite sure what that is.
(Don't you just love how the hot dogs are hidden? Like a real corndog!)
These little muffins were a hit with adults and kids! :)
Note: I made normal size muffins and the recipe/picture is for mini-muffins.
I'll admit, I did not make my own cornbread from scratch, but I think Marie Callender perfected the recipe, so why reinvent the wheel, right? Anyway, bought a big bag of cornbread mix on our last trip to Costco, bought a HUGE package of turkey dogs recently at Winco, and Jordan already requested baked beans for dinner... so we were set!! Literally a QUICK dinner, perfect for my Women's Group night.
Even with thoroughly spraying the muffin pan with Pam, the muffins still stuck. We will definitely be using cups next time. (I actually used my Pampered Chef avacado peeler to loosen them out)
And Justin laughed at me when I bought this! HA! Who's laughin' now?
