Welcome to Tuesday Tell All.  I am so excited about last weeks party.  We had 13 entries!  That is the second highest that I have ever had.  Hurray!!!!  So if you are new and just stopping by welcome and be sure to link up!

Clarrisa Emily,over at a little stone house, linked up this amazing Chocolate Truffle.  I was way surprised at how easy it was.  So stop over and get the yummy recipe!

Ellen, over at Creative Passage, hates to buy wash clothes.  Don't we all!  So she shows us how to make them over of old towels.  Such a great idea.  I think when I buy new towels I will just buy two extra towels and make some.  Thanks for this awesome idea!
Jenna, over at Running Wild, show us her awesome entertainment center.  The best part is that she made it with her daughter (silly me, it was her sister!  I am so sorry)!  Cool huh?!

Fabulous Friday

Alright, I know that I bombed it last week, but I am prepared this week!  Since we live with my mother in law, she decided that we needed chickens.  So one day she came home and had chicken, and turkeys.  I am not even kidding.  So my hubbie spent all night making them a box to live in for a few weeks till we could get a coup make. 

Anyways, we have TONS of eggs.  We get all least 4-5 a day.  So this is one of my favorite recipe if you have tons of eggs that you need to get rid of.  I received this recipe from my super sweet friend, Starla.  We actually had it tonight and it was delicious.  My sister in law had thirds. 

German Pancakes
6 Eggs
1 C Milk
1 C Flour
Pinch of Salt
6 T. Butter

Put 6 T. Butter in a 9*13 pan (this is important, because it raises on the sides) and put in oven till it starts to pop.  While butter is melting add eggs, flour, milk and salt together.  You can sift the flour to make it mix better.  When butter is ready, pour mixture into pan and bake 20 mins at 375 Degrees.  If your side are huge, not a big deal.

I have to share with my hubbie did the other day.  I know he won't like. But he never reads my blog anyways.  So he called and asked what I wanted him to start for dinner. I was doing hair.  I told him that we had a ton of eggs, so to do German Pancakes.  He asked how to make them and I told him the recipe. I called him on the way home and he said that he had it in the oven and would be done when I got home.  I was so excited and he was so sweet to do this for me. 

Well I walked in the door and the first thing he said was that he did somethings to jazz it up a bit.  I was scared.  He does this all the time and I am a recipe kinda girl.  I asked what he did.  He said that he had used wheat flour.  I was excited to see how they turned out with wheat flour.  But when I went to check on them,  they looked like a cake.  Which they are really thin, so I was way confused.  I asked why and he replied, "don't worry I made a double batch."  I about died laughing.  If you do a double batch you make them in two different pans.  He didn't know this.  Well needless to say, they didn't turn out how he had planned.  Everyone eat them, I had a hard time but it was eatable. 

Do you guys have any stories like that?



Homemade Baby Wipes

I am so excited to tell you about what I did.  The other day I was at a linking party and I saw a link about homemade wipes.  Which when I first had my son I would have never ever done.  Now I am all about saving money and not spending money on things that are just going to be thrown away.

So I went over to Homemade Mama's  to see how hard it was.  I was surprised at how simple it was.  So I thought, "Heck, I can do this!"  I went to Walmart and bought the baby oil today, which is crazy how expensive it is.  Next time I will be shopping at the dollar store.

I came home and got to work.  I followed her tutorial and it was cake.  The only thing was that I am crazy and I folded all of the wipes and put them in my wipe container.  I know, but I only had an ugly container to store them in.  Also it was really beat up.

The supplies that I used were: Johnson's baby moisture wash (Free, baby shower gift, but at Walmart $1.98), Johnson's Shea & Cocco Butter Baby oil ($3.24 at Walmart), Bounty Paper Towels (Free, Thanks mom! I think it is are $1.25 at Walmart) and tap water (Free).  So under 50 cents a batch!  I know!  That is crazy!!!!  I am so excited.  I think that I might try to find a thicker paper towel.  I don't want to get poop on me!  I know it willt happen, but I can still hope. I used them for today's poopy diaper and they were great!

Aren't they cool!  I am so excited!

Fabulous Friday (Saturday)

Did you know that yesterday was Friday?  Hello, neither did I, I am so sorry. I have a super yummy recipe that I had planned!  This Chicken and Rice recipe is one of my favorite dishes from my childhood.  My mom would make this two or three times a month and we always had some yummy leftovers.  It is one dish that you can freeze and reheat and it is really yummy. 

Chicken & Rice

1 Chicken, cooked, Deboned, & diced
1 pkg. Chicken Rice-A-Roni
2 Cans Cream of Chicken Soup
1/2 C Chicken Broth or water
Cheese, grated

Cook and dice chicken, then set aside.  Cook Chicken Rice-A-Roni according to directions on the package.  Mix everything together except cheese.  Put into a 9*13 pan.  Add grated cheese (how much you want) on top.  Cover with foil.  Cook for 30 mins at 350 degrees.  Uncover for 5 mins to finish melting cheese.  If you don't over cook, you can freese and reheat.  It freezes great. 

(When you cook the chicken, we like to do salt, celery and onions.  It is yummy!)

If you try this, let me know what you think!
