Meet Me on Monday


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
