Friday Fare!

Mrs. Nurse Boy here.

So, I am taking a break from my online shopping to help you all out for dinner tonight. I am doing a lot more online shopping this year and I am so afraid it is going to bite me in the butt. I mean, what if there aren't any presents under the tree on Christmas morning? Do I just say, "Your presents will be here in the next 5 to 10 business days. Merry Christmas!" Or, do I wrap up pictures of their future gift to be? The biggest problem is that I am too cheap to pay for any upgrades when it comes to shipping. I think that is all a big crock and I am going to keep my money.

And the underside of my tree bare.

Maybe not...time will tell.

So, it is cold outside and we are all much too busy to spend endless hours on dinner (like I ever have). Today I am sharing one of my favorite chili recipes. It is simple, easy, and has my favorite ingredient...chicken! This is mild, so add kick if you like.

Quick Chicken Chili
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts halves, diced
1 can (14.5 oz.) diced tomatoes with garlic and onion
1 pkg. (1.25 oz.) chili seasoning mix
1 can (15.25 oz.) whole kernel golden sweet corn
1 can (15 oz.) kidney beans, drained

1. Combine chicken, undrained tomatoes and seasoning mix in medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat 5 minutes or until chicken is done.
2. Add undrained corn and drained beans; simmer 5 minutes or until heated through.

Make some corn bread and enjoy!

I won't lie and tell you that my kids will even let this stuff touch their plates, much less their lips. They think all chili is evil. Nurse Boy and I love it and we don't have to share.

Now, back to shopping without the crowds...

that recipe sounds nice! Thanks for coming by my blog and leaving a friendly comment :) I love the term "poop on jelly" and how it comes from "peanut butter and jelly." Cracks me up!

Yum! I do something similar but with hamburger and we eat it over Frito's.
Chicken sounds like a nice change, we'll have to give it a try.

I'll be giggling all night over, "your present will be here in 5 to 10 business days."

Your blog is cute and funny! Thanks for stopping by mine...hope you have better luck with those neighbors of yours. Aren't people odd? At least ours rake their leaves. Into the street. For the leaves to blow into our yard. So my husband can bag them up for you. You're welcome. That's my letter. Every fall. (I know it's wrought with grammatical errors and the like, but I'm sure they aren't listening anyway. God Bless 'em.)

Good luck with the shipping - I've been pretty fortunate (when I order in advance ...)
