I've Actually Been Doing Stuff While I Wasn't Posting Here

 Hello all three people who occasionally visit! I think it's actually more like fifteen. I didn't want to let the fact that I haven't posted in almost half a year stop me from this important announcement:

I have a new book on Amazon!

If you're looking for Jewish activities and puzzles for many of the Jewish holidays, this book is for you!

Click on the picture or here to buy it on Amazon. 


The "look inside" that Amazon has is actually not very good. So here's a little extra "look inside":




Since you asked, here's a picture of my kid doing one of the activities:




Please excuse the messy background. We weren't actually planning on taking a picture.

In any case it's perfect for a Chanukah or birthday gift for your kid, right?!?!?! Thanks for stopping by and I will be back to post before another half year is up...I think.

White Chicken Chili

White chicken chili is not as hard to make pretty as traditional chili. Still, this was the best I could do to make this look as delicious as it tastes:


White Chicken Chili Recipe


1 small onion, quartered
3 cloves of garlic, minced or pressed
1 28 ounce can of tomatillos, drained by about 1/3 (or 1 1/2 lbs fresh tomatillos)
1 10 ounce can of Rotel tomatoes, Mexican style if desired, drained
8 ounces of chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon organo flakes
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds, crushed a little
1/4 teaspoon coriander
2 cans of great northern beens, drained 
2 1/2 Tablespoons lime juice
1 pound raw boneless, skinless chicken breast pieces

Place all ingredients except chicken into Instant Pot and stir. Place chicken pieces on top of liquid. Pressure cook for 9 minutes and then manual release. 

Remove chicken pieces and shred. Return chicken to pot and stir. Serve with sour cream, shredded cheese, tortilla chips, or rice.


Notes: 

This recipe can be made in a crock pot by cooking all ingredients on high for two hours, then cooking on low for 6-7 hours. Remove chicken and shred about an hour before it is done.

If you use fresh tomatillos you may want to add a bit more chicken broth or leave the northern beans undrained.

You can never have too much rodeo stuff

You can never have too much rodeo stuff. I guess. 

At least I seem to feel that way since I have created yet another Texas/Rodeo digital scrapbooking kit.

This will be available at my Teachers Pay Teachers store at the end of next week and will be free for the month of May. 

OOPS! I lied! It will actually be available at my brand new Creative Fabrica store right this very minute! It may also eventually be available on TpT depending on how things work out with Creative Fabrica. Get it here or by clicking the preview.


Meanwhile, here's a link to my OTHER Texas/Rodeo digital scrapbooking kit:


It's sort of a shame that the colors don't coordinate but...oh well. Happy scrapping and I will hopefully update this post when I have the new rodeo kit available.

Melt the butter with chocolate chips. Add sugar. Mix well. Add eggs a little at a time. Mix well. Add cocoa and stir until well blended. Add to cake pan and bake 35-40 minutes until risen with a firm crust on the top. Cake should be firm in the center. Cool for 10 minutes and then invert onto a plate.

A cat and a kid

 Since I'm apparently never updating this blog, here's a picture of my cat getting ready to make an important announcement on the Bayou Brew radio show on KPFT:


And another of her sitting around in a box on top of the dining room table. 

As one does.


And also a picture of my kid not so happy with the dinner situation. 


At least she ate it despite the disgusted look.
