New Friends

The house is coming along - photos soon to follow - but I think it's safe to say we moved to a little Disney cottage. There are charming perks I'll elaborate on later, but I had to share about my visitors yesterday. These little critters came to the window by my side of the bed within an hour of each other! Judah was a huge fan, starting up gibberish conversations with them both.
This also answers my question as to whether or not we should open the windows that don't have screens.

Absolutely not. Never ever ever.

Despite the cardboard boxes taking over the new house from our move last weekend, I have had a lot of forced "down time" these last few days.
What to do, what to do.....?
In addition to giving myself a virtual hair makeover, I also found my new favorite Etsy items...Terrariums! I love these things! They are so sweet and quaint. My top picks:

Moss Terrarium No. 127 - madebymavis
Woodland Terrarium Mushroom Necklace - 4TheSparrowsNest
Wee Mushrooms for your Terrarium - weeshop
Stackable Moss Terrariums - beadstyle
Terrarium Pendants - WarmCountryMeadows
The Paperweight Moss Terrarium - Greenbriar

The last few whirlwind weekends in our crazy life have left the shop nearly empty - a good problem to have, I suppose! So over the next few days and weeks new items will be pouring's a little preview:

Half-N@ked Chicken Pot Pie

This is how I convince my hubby to eat a pot pie with only crust on top - not bottom. It's that easy...just use the words "half-n@ked" and it becomes a fun, cheeky little dish I've created, instead of a healthy, half-the-calories version of the real thing. It's all in the presentation, my friends.

It's actually one of Gran's recipes. She didn't bother with with a name change - I'm sure Pops is used to her healthification of meals by now.

2 T. olive oil (salt,pepper)
3 stalks celery, with leaves, chopped
2 small carrots, slice thin
1 cup diced onions
3-4 red skinned new potatoes, cut small
1 cup fresh mushrooms, chopped

1 cup English peas (canned or frozen)
1 cup cooked chicken
1/2 can cream of mushroom soup
1/4 soup can milk
1 whole wheat pie crust

• Preheat oven to 400˚
• Heat oil in large skillet over medium/med-high heat. Add celery, carrots, onions, salt & pepper
• While those saute, prepare potatoes and add to pan, then mushrooms last. Stir and cook until potatoes are tender (5-10 minutes)
• Pour all into a large pie pan (I used square baking dish)
• Layer peas over other veggies.
• Layer chicken over vegetables.
• Mix soup and milk together and pour over chicken. (It will not be a lot of gravy)
• Turn crust out of pie tin over chicken & veggies and press down and shape to pan. Make several slits to vent.
• Bake at 400 for 35-40 minutes until edges of crust begin to brown.

✽ And please, no comments on how disgusting the photos look. Pot pie is just not very photogenic, and you wouldn't want to hurt it's feelings.
✽✽ I had to spell this "half-n@ked" because our filter wouldn't let me view the page! Ha! Good to know it works. :)
