Welcome Back!!

Why, hello there!   Welcome back and Happy New Year!!
It's been a long time. 
Happy News Time!
I've decided to start dusting off the cobwebs and bringing back to life this blog. It has been seven long years since I have posted anything. I missed my outlet to share and hear from others. There were some years that I wanted to start writing again, but I knew that I could not give the time that would have been needed. So, with some personal changes that have occurred, I can say that The Phizzingtub will be active again. (hip, hip, hooray!). 
I will continue posting day trips that we have taken, recipes I have tried, soaps (I will be starting up again) and some ramblings from time to time. Facebook - yeah, I dunno. I had a page long ago and nobody ever used it so perhaps not. Instagram - yep. I have an account and do share my photos there though I can't say I will be doing any videos. I won't rule them out but ....   
There are some kinks I need to work out behind the scenes but she is ready to go!  With that.... here we go!


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 every 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 leftover 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.
