Beer And Cheddar Cheese Puffs

Such a perfect way to serve your guests during a football game party or during the upcoming holiday get-togethers! This recipe makes about 4 to 5 dozen little buns depending on how heavy handed the cook is, ha ha! Yes, I’m still on a cheese kick but with company coming this weekend, I wanted something to munch on while Kenny and I kick their butts playing poker! I came across this recipe in my older book, Recipes on Parade, and with a few changes, this was the way I rocked! You can fill these lite little babies up with anything your heart desires, from chicken salad to a cheese spread which I put on mine today. Kenny is now opting to use them for his Po Po platter for an upcoming football game. I was going to ask you to keep a secret for me but then I realized Kenny would find an open beer can in the frig with half of it gone. You see, I used his Yuengling lager beer for this recipe, OOPS! So with that, on with the party……………

Honey...You been drinking my beer?

  4. Add eggs one at a time, beating until smooth after each addition.
  5. Drop by teaspoonfuls on an un-greased cookie sheet.

Chicken Nuggets Rumaki Style

"Home Sweet Home"

“Home Sweet Home”

When it rains it pours, literally and figuratively! Yes, Monday, Mother Nature decided we were dry enough and dumped another 4 inches of rain on us! We were just getting dried out enough that we were ready to get the guy in here to put rock down and BAM. We also found out that our newest addition to the family does not do well with thunder storms and Tuesday morning with a light rain still coming down, Jingles refused to go off the porch to go potty so I left her out thinking I was safe, oh no. The rain eased up enough that she went off the porch to do her business and decided to check out the neighborhood! After about an hour of walking around and calling her, Kenny decided to take the car so he could go even farther is his search and I came in to make some phone calls to the neighbors so they could be on the lookout too. Kenny came back empty handed and while looking out the back door noticed her at the edge of one of paths through the woods, he called her and she turned tail and ran in the opposite direction, disorientated in her new environment? About a half an hour later, my neighbor was beeping out in front of our driveway (have it roped off because of the muck), her husband spotted her way down at the end of our road and Beverly offered to drive me to where they saw her. After having to ford a stream about 3 inches deep running over the road, up the hill we went and when we reached the top, there she was. I jumped out of the SUV, and the first “Jingles” out of my mouth brought her running to me. You could just see her happy face saying, “Mom, you came to rescue me!”, it was so cute until I opened the door to the vehicle and she bolted in on my neighbors seat, mud and all! Neighbor was fine with it and Jingles curled up on my lap, happy as a lark to be going home!

So after the day I had had, I was not in the mood to do much cooking but still had some chicken that I needed to packaged up for the freezer and some of it ended up on the dinner table that night in the “form” of Rumaki. I love the real version of Rumaki, but husband is not a fan of any kind of liver, so I threw this together hoping it would work and it did. One of my dilemmas however, was the fact that the only water chestnuts I had were sliced instead of whole and they were a pain in the A** to keep inside the chicken nuggets! The last few times I had been shopping, no whole water chestnuts were to be found in the 3 grocery stores I had went to, a shortage on these now? However, yesterday on my shopping trip, they showed back up at 2 of my main shopping haunts and they are now stocked on my shelf here at home!

Would you believe we ate them ALL!
