Did I mention that I'm going to Boston for a week? It's for work, and will be full time, non-stop, grueling work. This conference exhausts me every year. So, in preparation for the nightmare week ahead of me I've decided to do NOTHING this week.
No hanging out with friends. No cocktails. No chores. Just laundry, packing, eating, working and going to bed by 10pm. Today is Wednesday, and so far I've been successful. Yay for me!
I have been couponing like crazy over the last few weeks...
and my stockpile is getting a bit out of control. I've got so much meat, chicken & frozen veggies that I can't really justify going out to eat.
I've gone back to my recipe book, and last night TEN and I made a recipe I've had earmarked for a while. I found the recipe on http://www.quick-and-easy-dinner.com/. I found my way to this site because although I LOVE/ADORE/ADMIRE/WANT TO BE Gina from Skinnytaste, there are some nights when I just need something, anything, that can be made in 1.5 minutes. Even if it isn't the most flavorful, fantastic, tasty thing I've ever had.
That's how I found this recipe, and although it is quite simple...there was dough and bundling involved. And that sounded like fun :)
- 4oz. cream cheese, softened (I used Neufatel - 1/3 less fat!)
- 1- 13oz can of chicken (we could only find 10oz or 15oz. we used 15oz.)
- 1 Tbs. sesame seeds (honestly...i forgot these. oops!)
- 1/4 tsp. parsley
- 2 cans Pillsbury crescent rolls - leave in fridge until ready to use
(TEN was the "official" Chef of the evening :)
I forgot to pick up sesame seeds, so TEN suggested using a stalk of celery to add some crunch. We added it to the filling, and it was delish!
Thank goodness a reader wrote in, because apparently we missed a step too. Although what that step is, is beyond me. Buy 2 cans of crescent rolls. Trust me.
