A little bit of this and a little bit of that. Daily Ramblings, recipes, photos and whatever else I like to share along the way.

Eyes are a Changing

So, for the past two months I have not been able to ready ANYTHING up close.  Sigh.....
Not what I really want to face - the need for bifocals.
Today was Dr. day and surprise my script went down.
I could read up close and see far away so with some luck bifocals or reading glasses have been pushed back.
I will not know for certain until I gety new lenses but am totally thrilled with the news.

What do we see....

The puppies are getting bigger very day. They love the great outdoors and exploring.

Mini Chicken Pot Pies

One of my all time favorite meals of comfort - Chicken Pot Pie
 There is just something about that creamy inside that is all warm and filled with delicious chicken and veggies.
Plus you also have that wonderful flaky crust.
I had never attempted to make them before.
Kiddos never really liked them when they were younger.
Now however they are not opposed to eating them at all.
Enter in out new kitchen gadget.
A mini pie maker by Bella.
I know crazy right but...
DH and I are the only two in the house that eat pies.
Making a large pie for this house is crazy because we tend to throw away more than we eat.
This new little friend allows us to make the perfect size and amount of pie.
So easy to use.
I could not wait to make our own warm, tasty and personal pot pies.

The filling was quite easy to make.
Can of Cream of Mushroom soup
3/4 cup of shredded cooked chicken breast
few dashes of onion powder
1/2 cup of mixed veggies
1/4 cup of skim milk
Mix well.

I have to admit to cheating on the crust.
We had a left over pie crust from Trader Joe's that I opted to use.

I have to say this little cooking gadget has come in handy. 
The sky is the limit on what tasty treats we can create.

Two puppies.
We have two puppies.
Squabbles galore when together.


What a way to start a new year.
Not what I expected to say the least.
We tossed the idea around of a Bulldog since Spencer is a HUGE UGA fan.
Then he asked for one.
There was a tiny $$ issue.
He has really never asked for anything.

Enter in the Beabull.
A Beagle/English Bulldog mix.
He thought they were so cute.
They are.

Go for one.
End up with two.
DH could not resist one.
Call it his midlife crisis.

They are 9 weeks as of today.
We have had them since they were 6 weeks.
Way too young to be taken from mom.
Poor little fellows.

I miss my sleep.
No, I really miss my sleep.
When one is up the other is sleeping and then it flips through the night.
We have yet to make it through the night.
Up two times.
I know this shall pass but the lack of sleep is starting to take a tole on me.

Yeah, they do that.
A lot.
Working on this issue.
No yappy dog in my house.

Elder dogs.
One (Sasha) is thrilled.
Her own play toy. lol
Though she needs to learn when to stop playing.
One low growl and they know who is boss.
Fingers crossed they all get along.
And soon.
