Chicken Rolls

Chicken Rolls are SO yummy! I was asked what they were, so I figured I would let all of you in on it – once you make them, you will fall in love with them too!!

1 – 8oz package of Cream Cheese
1 – bundle of green onions
1 – small container of fresh bella mushrooms (you will only need a couple of them)
1 – package of maple flavored bacon
5 – 6 chicken breasts
*Chop up the green onions and mushrooms into very tiny pieces.

*In a mixing bowl, mix the cream cheese, green onions, and mushrooms (judge how much you want of the green onions and mushrooms you want in yours) It works best if you set the cream cheese out for about 30 min prior to soften it up.

*Flatten out chicken breasts (I use my fist).

*Roll/Stuff the Cream Cheese Mix into each chicken breast and wrap 1 – 2 pieces of bacon around it. (I use all the Cream Cheese Mix, I like mine ‘over-stuffed’)

*Place in glass baking dish, put in oven at 350 for 35-40 minutes

ENJOY!! Let me know if you make them! They are delicious!
(I googled a photo because I didn't take a picture of mine.... but you get the picture)

My pregnant sister told me she was craving Chicken Rolls and wanted to know if I would make them for her... so of course I did :) While dinner was in the oven, she informed me the bakery around the corner from her house, had a Drive-Through!!! Yes, a bakery with a Drive-Through!!!

Oh My Goodness! This Bakery was AMAZING! It is called Ooh-La-La, if you live in the Katy Area, you HAVE to go check it out! It recently won a competition for their delicious cupcakes!Steph picked the Velvet-Elvis Cupcake (Red Velvet cupcake with cream cheese icing), I had the Brown Sugar Cinnamon Cupcake (tasted like a coffee cake from heaven). We also both got hot coffee drinks - I think I found my new guilty pleasure with this place!

After dinner, we enjoyed our cupcake delights, coffee, and topped it off by watching a classic super girly movie - Only You, with the oh-so-hot Robert Downey Jr.

I love girl nights :)

Muggle Monday's

This is not the usual MM... but I couldn't resist. When Stephanie asked me who Tim looked like, I immediately said HARRY POTTER!!!! Luckily, Joe had his old Halloween Costume and had Tim put it on... Can you see it??
Some HP News
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is really coming along great! It is getting closer and closer to the park opening - There are rumors that it will open in March 2010!! We are going to try to go in October of this year - I cannot wait!!

2009 Round-up!!

I have yet to post pictures from Christmas and New Years - So here it goes!!

Every year my Nana throws a large Christmas party on Christmas Eve. It's an event I look forward to every year! I get to see some of my extended family that I only see once a year!

With my Mom

With my cousin Steven... he makes me feel so short!
With my cousin Jeffrey, who lives in NY, but will be moving back in August!
With my Little Sister, AshleyI got a new camera for Christmas from my Nana, which I opened that night, however it was after a lot of people had left and after we took a picture of my HUGE Italian family!! I would have loved to put a picture of that on here!!

My mom and I on Christmas Day! In between Christmas and New Years, I went ice skating! I haven't been ice skating since I was a little girl! I thought I would be the first in my group to eat it, however I was VERY shocked that I did not fall ONCE!! WOOHOO!!

For New Years, we always go out to eat with my Mom's side of the family. This year Nana treated us to Mexican food. YUM!

Then I headed to my friends amazing party! They had a dance floor, music, poker tables, open bar, etc - I couldn't ask for more!! I had so much fun this New Years!

The girls at the Black Jack table! (where I doubled my money!)

Posing with Brooke The girls!
Me, Brooke, and Audrey (so glad Audrey is back in the States!!)
I had a GREAT Christmas and a WONDERFUL New Years!
Here's to 2010!!
