We have had some really awesome weather here! Yesterday afternoon the boys and myself got in the pool for awhile. It felt wonderful just to float around and enjoy the sunshine! Now, the boys, they don't just float around. There has to be wrestling, splashing, and all sorts of stuff with the floats. But, everyone had fun and it was nice to soak in the sunshine. Last night we went walking at a track very close to the house. There were alot of people out on the track. It was a very productive and enjoyable day!

Today I would like to share a couple of recipes. The first one is from Mrs. H, over at Heritage Schoolhouse. She has the best recipes! I have made several of her recipes and my family has enjoyed them all!

Creamy Chicken Enchiladas
(makes two pans-one to eat and one to freeze!)*

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon dried minced onion
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
5 cups cooked chicken, shredded
20 flour tortillas
2 cans condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
2 cups (16 ounces) sour cream
1 cup milk
2 cans (4 ounces each) chopped green chilies
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Mexican blend cheese

Beat cream cheese, water, onion powder, cumin, salt and pepper until smooth. Stir in chicken. Place 1/4 cup mixture down center of each tortilla and place seam side down in 2 greased 13x9x2 inch baking dishes. Combine soup, sour cream, milk and chilies; pour over enchiladas. Bake, uncovered at 350 degrees fro 30-40 minutes or until bubbly. Sprinkle with cheese and bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Enjoy!
*We ate most of the two pans!
Also, I let my chicken cook in the crock-pot along with the chicken soup. The chicken just shredded so easily.

Rocky Road Brownies
1 package German chocolate cake mix
1/2 cup skim milk
1 can fat free condensed milk
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup raisins
2 tablespoons reduced-fat chocolate chips

Mix cake mix with condensed milk, skim milk, marshmallows and raisins and then pour mixture (it will be very thick) into 9x12 pan that has been sprayed with pam. Top with chocolate chips. Bake at 350 degrees for 23-25 minutes. Makes 24 at 2 fat grams each.
This recipe is from one of my church cookbooks. Yum!!!

I hope you enjoy these recipes! Have a wonderful Tuesday!
