Fall Appears!

Last sunday, my roommate and I went for a drive up Blacksmith Fork Canyon to look at the changing leaves. We were so excited to see that so many have already begun to turn. We couldn't help but stop and take some pictures.

And Trish couldn't help herself. She had to take this picture of me against my wishes.

Its Friday and Im so glad! Its been a long week with lots going on so im glad to have a weekend here. I have started up weight watcher's again and it has been tough to stick to changing my eating but I have seen and felt great improvements. I lost 2.8 pounds this week and that makes it all worth it. I need to stay focused and then I will do better at this. Wish me luck for next week:)

Recipe of the Week

This is one of my all time favorites!
Chicken Pillows
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts cooked and diced
1 8oz cream cheese softened
1/4 to 1/2 cup of minced onion
Combine those ingredients together and set aside. You can use rhodes dough or canned biscuits. You take a roll and put a spoonful of the filling inside and bring the sides around it so the filling is in the middle. Melt some butter and take croutons and crush them. Then take the roll and put it in the butter then into the crouton mix and put them on a cookie sheet. Bake them for 15 minutes or until brown at 350. In the mean time make a sauce to go on them. Take 1 can of cream of chicken soup and 1/2 cup of milk and heat it. When the pillows are done put them and the sauce on the table so people can put the sauce on themselves if they want it. Enjoy!

Recipe for the week

Inside out Hamburgers

These are one of my favorites you take your hamburger patty and smash it very thin then put bbq sauce, your choice of cheese and some bacon either cooked or raw in the middle. Take the sides and fold it over so everything is in the inside! After they are cooked you just make them up like a regular burger but you have all the good stuff in the middle! They are so good its making my mouth water. Enjoy!

random thoughts

Life can sure have its ups and downs and trying to stay positive through it all can be another trial. I have found out lately that I am a very sensitive person. Its hard for me to have someone hurt me and just not go running away and bawl about it. I am trying to be better about handling things but its hard! Its taught me to think before i speak so I am not the one making someone cry. Sorry I just had to share that its been on my mind this last week..

Me and my roommate have been struggling with a sinus infection and its awful! I hate being sick Im the biggest baby. Its hard to get motivated to do anything when you dont feel very well. We are suppose to go camping and to bear lake with a group this weekend so Im hoping we feel better by then. Theres nothing worse then being at a relaxing spot and not being able to enjoy it!
