Five Things Friday

Carla over at My 1/2 Dozen Daily just started up a "5 things Friday" which I thought I'd participate in.

Just a fun little post about 5 random things going on right now......

1)  There are NO extra curricular activities happening today!  No hockey games/practice, no volleyball, no dance....I'm looking forward to the work day being over so we can enjoy a family pizza & movie night!

2) I made Brie and smoked raspberry chipotle stuffed chicken breasts last night.  They turned out amazing but UGLY (!!) so I didn't take any photos!  LOL  I simply cut a slit through the bone in/skin on breast and filled it up with some smoked raspberry chipotle sauce and a thick slice of Brie.  I baked them covered for 45 mins, uncovered for 15 mins and then they got a quick hit under the broiler to toast them up.

3) While the chicken baked we got ALL the leaves in the front yard raked up.  Holy smokes, were there ever a lot more piled up then I originally thought!  However, it was a gorgeous day and they're calling for rain and cold for the next 5 days straight so it was the perfect time to get it done.

4) Jason and I are completely obsessed with Starbucks Caramel Apple Spice drink this season.  It's actually bordering on ridiculous.  Our only saving grace is that there is not a Starbucks too close to our house!  ;)

5) It's currently raining pretty hard outside and the temps have dropped since this morning.  In order to stay on the positive side of the fence, I keep reminding myself that it could very well be snow.  "Snow", by the way, is a swear word in my eyes!  LOL

Why don't you go ahead and tell me 2 random things going on right now in the comment section???

Bye for now!!


  1. Wow.. An "off" day for you! Awesome! :) Your dinner sounds delicious! Ugly or not! lol! We're getting the rain too... But yes, better than snow!! lol!

  2. The chicken sounds really good!

    I need to pile up leaved too! Too bad that there's no man in the house to help out.

    Two things:
    - I'm extra hungry today, bread feeding hunger? Dunno, haven't got any yet. Maybe I'm just not having time to eat enough.
    - another napless day here. She only sleeps on my shoulder. :(

  3. 2 random things eh?

    1. I'm obsessed with sauerkraut as a burger topping. Eating a homemade chicken burger for dinner right now with a whack of it on there. Delish!
    2. I had my first ever flu shot last week only because our provincial government has forced all health care workers to do so. I'm so not impressed.


I'd love to hear from you!! Please leave a comment!
