Recipe + Update

There are lots of exciting things happening around here. Time is flying and I'm wishing it would slow down a little bit! The most exciting piece of news is that my sister and her family have moved here! It has already been so fun to have them and they've only been here a few days. Fletcher and Matt are working on all sorts of boy projects and Ab has been helping me cook! By helping I mean that I hold the sweet baby and stir a pot every once in a while and she pretty much does everything else.

Boys projects = things like building a fire in the backyard and burning things while we work on dinner...

This week we tried a new recipe that I found on pinterest.

Cook the chicken then mix together chicken, swiss cheese, red pepper, onions, mayo, bacon, dijon mustard, and Italian seasoning mix. The recipe calls for laying out the crescent rolls on a pizza pan, but I couldn't find mine so we did two small crescent braids instead of one big ring.

Bake at 375...the recipe said 20-25 minutes but ours was ready in about 15 so just watch it.

Bacon Crescent Ring
2 tubes crescent rolls
chicken, cooked and cubed
1-1/2 cup shredded swiss cheese
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup finely chopped red pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
6 bacon strips, cooked and cut up into pieces
2 Tbsp. Dijon Mustard
1 Tbsp. Italian Seasoning Mix

  1. That picture of Eli makes me want to get in the car and drive to Birmingham right this minute! Wish I could have seen the boys and the bonfire. Wish I could have tasted the chicken roll.

  2. I know you're loving having Matt, Ab, and Eli right there with you! I'm adding this recipe to my "must try soon" list ... I REALLY want to check out pinterest, but I'm a little bit afraid too!

  3. I tried this tonight and it was a hit!! Post more recipes, please! :o)
