My new recipe...

and i think it smells divine! it tastes amazing...i think i'll call it...mexican layer bake.

so here's what i did...and in gen style, there are pics too!

four chicken breasts
2 cans tomato sauce
salt & pepper
liquid smoke
garlic pepper
onion powder

this morning, i put four boneless, skinless chicken breasts in the slow cooker with two cans of tomato sauce and seasonings listed. cook all day. when chicken is done, pull it apart with two forks, and put it back in the sauce...to cook...and absorb the flavors!

2 cans refried beans
1/2 a jar taco sauce (or salsa would be yummy too)
corn tortillas
cheese (shredded)

When it's time to make dinner, combine the refried beans with the taco sauce.

then, layer corn tortillas,

refried bean mixture,


layer that way to the top of your dish, then put a layer of tortillas, and cover in cheese.

bake at 350 until cheese is melty and gooey!

a great shame to my housekeeping...

hey hey ya'll. ok, so i have a confession...i am not a great housekeeper. so as proof, i give you my kitchen:
Note the dishes piled high...ugh!

notice the dirty trash can cover? ew! the counters are covered in ick...and groceries on the floor...those were bought today for the record!

stuff everywhere!

so after all day, here's what it looks like:
see the clean dishes? lovely!

clean dishes and counters are great!

see the glasses on the counter? those are what the girls use during the day...and the bottle with the yellow label is medicine for me...that colander is for fresh apples...

a nice clean counter. lovely!

now, why did it take all day you ask? here's the thing...i was just diagnosed with fibromyalgia. so chronic pain is worse now than before...so it took all day. by the end of the week, i think the house might be clean...if i take it one day at a time!

yup, i'ma yellin again ya'll! we had an incredible time at Mardi Gras. and, I know that there are those of you who do not live, here, nor do you have any reason to know what the big deal is...so i took pics for ya. :) without further ado:
This was our little plot of land where we plopped down HOURS before the parade started...
This is a lady that was next to us on the route...note her clothing....she is the "who dat fairy"...i say she's a lucky fairy!
These ladder seats are all along the parade route. they are decorated in various ways...this one is purple green and gold.
while waiting for the parade to roll, we play in the street!

this precious lil girl is dressed as a saints cheerleader...granddaughter to the "who dat fairy".
another ladder seat...love it!
baby girl loves the who dat fairy...and her wand!
Pappy plays with the children...and paid for it later!
the start of the parade! so much fun...didn't get a pic, but Rachael Ray was the Grand Marshal!

these ponies were just too TOO cute!
This is a float with Maids on it...see the gorgeous headdresses?

we were so close to the Clydesdales...they were gorgeous!
The Coke float...so much fun! they actually handed out cold colas!
Marching bands tend to be plentiful in parades...we even saw one from TN!
The Marine Corps marching band....wow.
