Friday Fives!

It's been awhile since I participated in Beth's Friday Fives, and I've really missed it!

Just Me and My Life

1. What's your go to recipe?

First of all, you have to read Beth's.  My mouth watered just reading the ingredients.  I think I shall make it on Sunday!  Thanks Beth!!!

My favorite, running out of time recipe is chicken crescent rolls.  They are so quick and easy, and hubby and I adore them!

Here's what you need -
One tube crescent rolls
4 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked (I boil) and shredded or cubed
1 block cream cheese (we use fat free and I really can't tell a difference)
1 bag Lipton flavored rice (I buy the chicken garlic flavored, but it's good with anything)

Cook the rice per the instructions, stir in the cream cheese and chicken.  Lay crescent rolls flat, making four squares.  Put a 1/4 of the mixture in the middle of each crescent roll square, and wrap it up with the sides, making a ball.  (Do this on the cookie sheet you are going to bake them on - they do not transport well before they are cooked).  Cook for 15 minutes, or until the tops are browned at 350.  Yummy!

You can add whatever you like to these.  Sometimes I add some diced veggies, like broccoli or squash, and I like onions in there too.  The possibilities are limitless!  If you are having people over, brush the tops of the balls with an egg white before cooking, it makes them look so nice :)

2. When you hear "American food" what comes to mind?

HOT DOGS!  I LOVE hot dogs, but the only time I really treat myself to them are at baseball games.  I like them with onions and mayo, and ketchup!  I know, I know, everyone tells me that sounds gross - but I LOVE it!

3. What would you say is one of your "weirdest" quirks?

Hmmm...this is be a much better question to ask my hubby.  I am very methodical.  I do things in certain orders.  Like, I have a running to do list at work, and I work on it in sections of 5 items at a time.  If it's not highlighted to be worked on at that time, I have a hard time changing it up.  I know it's really weird, and probably a little OCD, but it works for me, I guess.  I have to pick up the house in order of how you walk through it, guest room to laundry room, kitchen to den, dining area to bedroom, bathroom to closet.  It's weird and inefficient.  I don't know why I'm that way - It just makes sense to me.

4. What color do you mainly wear?

I'm with Beth on this one - black.  It's easy, slimming, classic and goes with almost everything.  But yes, it is a little boring.  Hubby has banned the purchase of any new black shirts or black dresses.  Oops.

5. Always have to say everything on your mind or never speak again?

I do not always speak my mind.  I do at work, but in my personal life I am very worried about hurting other people's feelings, so I tend to be PC and stay pretty quiet if it not something nice to say.

Happy Friday!

Oh Michelle that recipes sounds delish! This may be our Sunday night family meal! And I clean my house in the same order, so don't feel too bad! :)

I made your chicken crescent rolls last night and they were so good! I added squash, mushrooms and onions to mine. Austin loved it. :) Thanks for sharing!
