First, I want to say that my pup is doing great. She got the staples taken out of her side, and the vet said it looked like everything healed perfectly! yay! And my neighbor, was very apologetic about her dog (a chow, which I've heard often bite with no warning) and paid for our vet charges.
We're happy, and my Indy puppy is even happier to go on walks again. But then yesterday, we got some bad news. My dear hubby Captain Jax had applied for a promotion, and was a shoo-in. As in the manager deciding who got the position had told him previously (about 2 months ago) that the next store (He is an assistant manager at Gamestop) would be his. He'd finally be a manager, after 3 years of waiting and working for it!!!
And then she gave it to someone else. He's pretty bummed about it (as am I) since she told him it would be his. *sigh* that's life for ya ain't it?
Anyway, on to our MONDAY MIX-UP!!! (On Tuesday. . .again)
We're making a basic chicken mix, which has a lot of potential. Here's what you'll need:
- 12-14 chicken breasts
- 4 carrots
- parsley flakes
- dried basil leaves
Throw everything into a pot of cold water (4 qts to be exact). Let it start boiling, then turn it down and simmer it for about an hour, until the chicken's done.
Drain out the broth (feel free to save it and freeze it for later uses)
shred up your chicken, and mix everything together nicely.
Mmmm. . . . .
Divide the mixture into 2 cups per bag, since that's the amount that's needed for most recipes. Label it and freeze it for up to 6 months.

- 12-14 chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)
- 4 qts cold water
- 4 carrots, cut up
- 2 tsp pepper
- 4 tsp salt
- 2 tsp dried basil
- 3 Tbsp parsley flakes
Now, my older sister reads my blog. She doesn't comment (but she should!!) but she thought of me as she made Chimi's a few nights ago and she took pictures for me! She rocks.
This meal though, when I saw it, I thought "This would go perfectly with my chicken mix!!" So here we go!
Take 1 bag of your chicken mixture, and mix it together with some sauteed onions and peppers. Feel free to add some cheese. We all know how I feel about cheese.
Take 2 packages of crescent rolls and roll them out into rectangles. (2 triangles per square) Make sure you pinch the seams together, otherwise you might have some difficulty cleaning your pan later on. Spoon some salsa onto each one.
Add some chicken mixture and roll up from the short end. It is more or less just folding the edges up on the rectangles, and pressing the seam into itself (place seam side down on baking sheet). Don't worry too much about the ends, just kind of gently push together a little. Sprinkle with some more cheese (You might have to push it down a little bit to have it stick)
Bake for about 20 minutes at 350degs.
Top with sour cream and green onions.
Or don't. My sister didn't (I bet she didn't have any in her fridge :) )
