Thursday & Friday Recipes

Sorry I'm just getting to this... my internet is making me mad! We hope to be able to get our DSL back on on Friday! Woot!

So, anyway, here are Thursday's recipes:

Chicken Bacon Wraps

Heat oven to 350*.

1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1" cubes
1 (1lb) packages sliced bacon, cut into 3rds
3/4 c brown sugar
2T chili powder

Wrap chicken cubes with bacon. Secure with toothpick. Mix together brown sugar and chili powder. Dredge wrapped chicken in mixture. (I didn't have any toothpicks... so I dredged the chicken bites first, then just patted one side of the bacon slice into the mixture and wrapped it and put it on the cookie sheet lol) Coat a rack & broiler pan with PAM. Place chicken on rack. Bake 30-35 minutes. (I don't have a rack or broiler pan...I know, right?? So, I just used cookie sheets.)

These were a HIT!! Yum!!

Cream Cheese Rangoon

1 package cream cheese
1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 T sugar (I used a whole T)

Combine cream cheese, garlic, and sugar. Put about a teaspoon of mixture in the middle of a wonton. Wet the corners of wonton. Bring opposite corners up together. Deep fry in oil until golden brown, flipping halfway if needed. Drain on paper towels.

The boys LOVED these and they are vegetarian friendly for DS16!

Friday's Menu:

Homemade Pizzas

Mia Pizza Crust kits from Wal-Mart (2 in a pack)
Jimmy Dean Hearty Sausage Crumbles - I use half the pack and save the rest for next time
Shredded Cheese

Make according to directions on crust kit. The kits handy because it comes with 2 crusts and 2 sauce packs, it's reasonably priced and actually very good! I make one cheese pizza and 1 meat and cheese pizza! The sausage crumbles MAKES this pizza!! It's probably the best I've ever had!:)

Then, I also made a Chapple Dump Cake:

Preheat oven to 350*

1 can cherry pie filling
1 can apple pie filling
2 boxes Jiffy yellow cake mix
2 sticks butter, cut into 12 slices each
13x9 pan(I used a 9x9 to make it thicker)

Dump apple pie filling into pan. Using a spoon, dump globs of cherry pie filling evening on top of apple(DS10 did this part!) Sprinkle cake mixes over all. Place butter slices over cake. Bake 1 hour. This is really rich and yummy! You can top with ice cream as well!

I also made some stuff to take on our trip to visit Missouri State University, which DS17 loved and has decided it will be his college! YEAH!!

Tortilla RollUps

1(8oz) cream cheese, softened
1 C sour cream
1(1oz) package dry fiesta ranch mix
1 C salsa
1 1/2 C shredded cheddar
10 (10") flour tortillas

Mix all. Spread on tortillas. Roll up. Chill in fridge. Cut into pinwheel slices.

Waffle Pretzel Snacks

1(15 oz) bag square waffle pretzels
2(13 oz bags) Hershey kisses or Rolos
1(14 oz) bag peanut butter m&ms

Put pretzels on cookie sheet. Place kisses or rolos on pretzels(we like the rolos better!). Cook in 170* oven until chocolate gets glossy, about 5-8 minutes. Take out of oven and push an M&M into chocolate. Chill in fridge. These are GONE! Everyone loved them!!:)
