Flashback to homecoming

Special thanks to my mom who brought this over so I could store it at my house... I was looking for something to fill my extra storage space.

Oh wait, no, no I wasn't.

I was kind of hoping this was one of those things that got to stay in moms closet until the day I was ready to show my kids what I wore in high school. Apparently, that's not the thought mom had.
I can't bring myself to throw it away but what am I supposed to do with it???

Oh, yum.

Welcome to another edition of what to stuff in your wonton wrappers. I had to un-freeze the whole package the other day and now I need to use them up. Today we are trying goat cheese, crasins, and walnuts. It it so yummy! I baked it at 350 for about 10 minutes. I sprinkles a pinch (and I mean a tiny pinch) of sugar on the top in hopes that it would melt in the oven and add some flavor to the wrappers. It didn't but they are still good!

Give it a try!

Bad Cason

Mr. Adventurous decided to climb on the kitchen table. I have found him here a few times. I only took a picture the first time, the other times he gets a spanking. It's dangerous!

How long until he climbs on the kitchen cabinets???

I think it's time for gymnastics.

Target colors

What a relief to find that the colors in my home are still in style. This is a new display at target and its the same colors I have had for years! I would like to think that I was the pioneer of these colors but that is probably not the case. Either way, I won't be changing my color palette any time soon... Maybe adding some new target accessories!

Mascarpone, wonton wrappers and other such matters.

Alright, so there were some people who pointed out in the comments section of my last post that while the napoleons sounded yummy, they were not made with typical pantry staples.  Here is the truth, I did have to run to the store for the mascarpone.  I had only used it once before but Giada uses it all the time and I think they use it for tiramisu also so I felt that it would work well in this dish.  The wonton wrappers I did have in my freezer actually.  They are great to keep on hand because they are less calories than bread and you can stuff them and bake them with lots of different things inside.  I stuff them with ham and cheese and make little hot sandwich pockets.  They get crispy in the oven which is nice because a lot of things don't get crispy until you fry them.
I just thought of something else I could stuff in a wonton wrapper.  If it works, i'll post it tomorrow!

Peach Napoleons

I was inspired to make a yummy dessert the other night. Inspired by a restaurant I went to where they had peach napoleons on the menu. I didn't have one but when I saw them on the dessert tray I thought "I can do that". The restaurant used puff pastry for the outside. Puff pastry is one of lifes greatest pleasures but it's loaded with fat and I didn't have any in my pantry. Here's my version:

Slice 2 peaches and toss in a bowl with a tablespoon of sugar and 1/4 tsp almond extract. Set aside in fridge for an hour or so.

Heat oven to 400. Place wonton wrappers on a cookie sheet and lightly sprinkle with sugar. Bake 5 minutes ( or maybe 10, I cant remember).

Mix 1c marscapone cheese with 1/4 c powdered sugar. Set aside.

When ready to serve, place a wonton on the plate, spread with cheese mixture, top with a few peaches. Repeat.

I think it was very yummy and it's an easy, fast, fresh summer treat!

I found these great basketball shorts for c. They are a little big but that's the best part. I think thats how all the thugs wear their shorts these days.

I took him to church so he could show off his skills. He had to flirt a bit first.

Then he was ready for some dunking.

He tried a little baseball as well. He just wants to have a sport for every season.

I probably shouldn't let him out in this heat!
