This is a great way to get back in the groove of blogging after a long holiday weekend! Every Sunday night, Java posts 5 questions to answer then link back to. It's a great way to learn a little more about friends we follow through blogging.
1. What is your favorite way to eat chicken?
Chicken strips on a salad. With honey mustard dressing. Made by someone else.
Carolina Chicken Salad (Ruby Tuesday)
2. Have you decorated for Christmas yet?
Nope; it's still high school football season here in the Small Town! Friday, the football team is going for their 7th State Championship in 7 years; their 12th total.
3. What is your favorite article of clothing?
Hmmmm....that's a tough question. I don't know that I just have one. I really like my pj's, especially my flannel pj's that I wear in the winter. I usually stay in them all day on New Year's Day!
Then there's my sweatshirts. Can do without them! I definitely prefer my winter clothes.
4. Do you pay your bills online or write checks the old way?
Mostly online. I still do a couple by check.
5. Do you make Christmas cookies?
I make quite a bit of candy, but not many cookies. I just can't get the hang of cut-out cookies, although Pillsbury does make a mean gingerbread cookie dough, so all you have to do it roll it out and cut away! The only problem is that it makes 15 gazillion cookies. I do make this amazing Candy Cane Cookie by Pampered Chef. Really easy and just incredibly delicious!
Candy Cane Cookies
1 package (18 oz.) refrigerated cookie dough
1/4 cup candy canes or peppermint candies (chopped)
1/4 cup pecans or wlanuts, chopped
1 package (12 ounces) white chocolate morsels
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Form dough into a ball and place into center of 15" baking stone (I would think you could put it into a cookie sheet that has been sprayed or prepped with parchment paper.). Flatten slightly with palm of hand. Lightly flour dough and rolling pin. Roll dough into a 14" circle. Bake 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.While cookie is baking, chop peppermint candy and nuts. Remove cookie from oven and immediately sprinkle morsels evenly over cookie. Let stand 2-3 minutes. Spread chips evenly into a think layer. Sprinkle with candy and nuts. Carefully loosen cookie from stone with a serrated knife. Cool 5 minutes. Cut with pizza cutter
