Tomorrow school?

Vlado has been asking this every day since Christmas break began. I am beginning to think that I bore him because he would much rather be at school with the other kids. Now, if I could only figure out how to keep his hands off the other kids because he spends way too much time in time out because he can't keep his hands to himself. UGH!

So I don't lose it

I tried this recipe about 5 months ago and then lost it. When I found it today, I decided to blog it so I would have it the next time I want it.

Chicken enchiladas with green chili cream cheese sauce
*These are seriously so so good*
10 soft taco shells
2 cups cooked, shredded chicken (this works with leftover pork roast too)
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
3 Tbsp. butter
3 Tbsp. flour
2 cups chicken broth
8 ounces cream cheese
1 (4 oz) can diced green chillies

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 pan
2. Mix chicken and 1 cup cheese. Roll up in tortillas and place in pan.
3. In a sauce pan, melt butter, stir in flour and cook 1 minute. Add broth and whisk until smooth. Heat over medium heat until thick and bubbly.
4. Stir in cream cheese and chilies. Do not bring to boil. You just want to melt the cream cheese.
5. Pour over enchiladas and top with remaining cheese.
6. Bake 22 min and then under high broil for 3 min to brown the cheese.

Happy 2012

I am happy that it is 2012 although I'm not saying that I'm glad that 2011 is gone. 2011 is the first year that I was a Mama all year long! :)

It was also the year that we began the process to bring home a sibling for our Vlado. We still aren't sure where that process is leading and, to be honest, I'm not sure I will be sharing that information until it is 100%. I feel ashamed that the other adoption did not happen and I'm not sure that I am prepared to open myself up to people (many of which who do not really know me) until I know that the path we are on is GOD'S PLAN and not mine. Because if I try to go on my own path....I know that being hurt is a big possibility. :(

Resolutions and me are not usually good. I have HUGE fits of enthusiasm at first and then, a little later, just give up. I am going to try to be better about blogging and sharing Vlado's accomplishments with all of you. He is a little guy who has surpassed many people's expectations and still continues to do so.

As a little end to this somewhat disjointed post, I will leave you with this.

We are in the throws of the terrible 2's at our house!
