Crystals Chicken Enchilada Soup.

I was running low on groceries the other night and my dear oldest child and his fiance had fixed what I had on the menu for that night, but a different night...so essentially, my groceries werent there to fix what I had planned (I thanked them for fixing supper that night but wondered how I was going to replace this meal..lol) Well, looking through my freezer and my pantry, this is what I came up with....

2 frozen bonless skinless chicken breast.
3 cans cream of mushrrom soup
1 soup can of milk
1 can Rotel
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
Salt to taste,
1/4 lb Velveeta, cubed.
Leftover tortilla chips and tortillas.
Sour Cream

I put a can of soup in the bottom of the crock pot, put the chicken breast on top of it, poured in the other two cans of soup, milk and rotel. Added spices. Stir. Cook on High for 4-6 hrs. At about 5 hours (before if you want...) I added the Velveeta and came back and stirred one or two times.

I was hoping for a thick mixture to make enchiladas out of but it turned out really soupy. So we just put some tortilla's and tortilla chips in a bowl and added soup and sour cream. Yummmmmm My hubby loved it and even my picky oldest child ate two bowls. I think if I fix it again though, I will double it.

My unannounced blogging break...and my 300th post!

Yeah I guess I have been on a break, unannounced yes but very needed. I dont know when I will get back to regular posting. This is my 300th post though! Interesting, I had no idea I had posted so much or so little depending on how you look at it.

My blogging time has been taken up with time with the kids and at night, my extra time has been occupied with ..... are you ready for this? "The Love DARE"! We started doing this 11 days ago and it is going great. Paul and I wanted to do it, and with Jack and Amber getting married in January, they are joining in.

A few words about it, when we decided to do it, the first few days it seemed that the Devil was trying his hardest to keep us from succeeding, but once we realized this and said "GET BEHIND ME SATAN" it was so easy to read the dare each night and the next day, actually use what we had read to better our relationship, and not to say that there arent little spats..here and there, and Paul and I have actually realized that over the past 6 months, we have actually been doing alot of this stuff, just to try to make our marriage better, without a book, but this book is helping so much.... I encourage anyone to try it, whether you think you have a good "Unconditional Love" marriage or not, try it. 40 days and you wont regret it...

On other notes, I am almost through with my Christmas preperations. I have a few more gifts to finish up and some food to make and I will be done. I hope to finish it up this week and then Monday and Tuesday will be spent packing for our trip south to my parents for the Holidays.... I am so excited, I get to see my family.

Other than that, there is not much more to report and I am out of time for today. I have to get back to my projects and get food ready for Bible Study tonight.

Much Love and Blessings and Happy Holidays to all...
