Post 4th of July

Well, after a long weekend of just plain laziness, yesterday was our day to get this old house back in order. I wanted to post this yesterday, but had let too much work slide and boy did I pay for it! After dinner, I tried to watch some TV and was dozing off on the couch! I hope everyone partied hardy and no one had any mishaps with cooking or fireworks. Kenny and I just laid around eating and chilling out, something we haven’t done in awhile. Of course, Hallmark started their Christmas in July movies this weekend and if you know me, I am a fanatic for Christmas with over 40 boxes of decorations and still growing. Am I Normal or Nuts?

Crablegs and new drive 001


Feasting on steak, crab legs, salad and garlic bread, we both were stuffed to the gills and couldn’t even eat the holiday dessert I had made which I will share with you hopefully tomorrow. This time I’m a few days late and a few dollars short as today I just wanted to share our weekend!

Our driveway is finally finished after all these weeks and Kenny is a happy camper that we will no longer have to park over on the north forty and hike through the woods with the groceries. The poor guy who put it in for us is one of those people that if it wasn’t for bad luck, he wouldn’t have any. I told him he should write a book!

A little touch up and it is awesome!

One of the other things I wanted to share with everyone is that we added a new link in our Links to Visit, http://www.lifewithgarnish.com. Adrian is a true believer in her crock pot and has many recipes involving it’s use. She has even made me think about using it more often when it’s so damn hot that you don’t want to heat up the kitchen! We enjoy her recipes along with the other friends in our links and I hope you will too……..


Well, it’s off to think about din-din and I’ll leave you with, “What shall I cook tonight?” That is the question………..enjoy!

Stuffed Chicken Grill Packets

More recipes for the Fourth seems to be the theme this week as everyone is gearing up and getting ready! Today is a gloomy day with rain and the forecast for the  next 10 days seems to hold high chances for more rain which includes Independence Day and don’t  know how many people will be able to cook out, at least not in our neck of the woods! Two days ago was the 1 year anniversary of Debbie, and I’m sure a lot of people around here are keeping a sharp eye on this rainy forecast we have in store, praying we don’t see Debbie’s sister or brother rearing their ugly head. With that said, this recipe can also be cooked in the oven if push comes to shove. If forced to cook inside, bake in a 350 degree oven for about the same amount of time and test chicken for doneness as in the recipe. I thought that this might be a nice alternative of cooking on the grill in case you’re not into the traditional versions of barbequing with sauces and such.

Guess what's for dinner?

Guess what’s for dinner?

Stuffed Chicken Grill Packets
  • Heavy duty aluminum foil
  • 1 pkg (10 oz) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed as dry as possible
  • 1 cup seasoned stuffing mix (I use plain dried bread cubes and season to taste)
  • 1 can (7-1/2 oz) ready to serve cream of celery soup
  • ¾ cup grated Swiss cheese
  • 2 teas minced sweet onion
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and paprika to taste
  1. Cut 6 pieces of the foil, large enough to place a single chicken breast with stuffing, and enough left over to cover chicken and seal well, forming a packet.
  2. Combine the spinach, stuffing, soup, cheese and onion and mix well.
  3. Divide the stuffing equally onto each of the pieces of foil (about ½ cup each).
  4. Top with a chicken breast, tucking the chicken around the stuffing; season with salt and paprika.
  5. Bring the foil up and around the chicken and seal tightly.
  6. Have charcoal ready for cooking and cook chicken over medium-hot coals about 40 minutes or until chicken is tender and juices run clear; turn chicken half-way through the cooking time.


Hope you can cook out for the big day………….enjoy!
