Relaxed Weekend

I love relaxing weekends - I remember before James, Chris and I would NEVER be home on the weekends. We were always out and about with friends. Saturday's were usually booked either for a house party or a bar excursion. Wow! How times change!

Now that we have two boys - the bar is a distant memory and a house party is now called a dinner party!

We didn't get up to much this weekend. Friday was a normal Friday for us. I made homemade Taquitos again - They are Chris' favorite right now. Not SUPER difficult to make, but does take some work.

 
Homemade Taquitos:
What you will need:
  • 3 Chicken Breasts cut into small cubes
  • 1 large Green Pepper chopped
  • 1 large Onion chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups of frozen Corn
  • 2 packages of Taco Seasoning
  • Package of Medium sized Tortillas
  • Grated Cheese
  • 2 cups of Oil
  • Toothpicks

In a large skillet, brown the chicken. Add the peppers, onions and corn and saute for 5 minutes. Follow the Taco Seasoning instructions (1 cup of water per packet of seasoning) Cook down till there is little to no fluid left.

Heat another skillet with oil in it. The oil should be at about 375* - you can test it out by cutting a small strip of tortilla to see if it fries.

Take a tortilla, add a small amount of the chicken mixture and some grated cheese and roll TIGHT. Secure the roll with a toothpick.

Place into oil and fry on both sides (about 3 minutes each side)

Take out of oil and drain on paper towel.

Serve with salsa or sour cream.

James' Unkie Keegs stopped by as well! James has a lot of 'Uncles' and he loves each and everyone of them. James and Keegs built a LARGE tower with Jimbo's Lego Duplo. He was so proud of it!



Saturday was another relax kinda day. We had to go to Walmart to get a few things, so we did that. Graham was great in the Ergo - he is starting to really like being in it. THANK GOODNESS!  We ordered Pizza for dinner as I wasn't keen on cooking and just spent the night in.

Yesterday was OSCARS night! I love award show season! We went the Chris' parents for appies and to watch the show. I loved seeing all the dresses and what not. Chris and I got to see quite a few of the best Picture nominees so we were rooting for out favorites. Silver Linings Playbook was one of our favorites as well as Beasts of the Southern Wild. I was SO happy when Anne Hathaway won for best Supporting Actress and also when Jen Lawrence won Best Actress. I will say I was shocked that Argo won Best Picture - it was a good one, but I thought maybe Lincoln would take it. Lincoln was hard to get through. I couldn't finish it!

We didn't get the boys home till well after 9:00 which is late for both of them. But we all had a great time and James even 'slept in' this morning!

Here's to starting the week off on a good note!

Hope you all had a great weekend!
