Something New!! and On the Menu Monday #3

Something new!!  I had a friend go into my blog settings and add in this new little diddy ... She did it, because, well, html scares me,! ALTHOUGH, I did go in and change it from being in the center of the pictures, to the bottom right, ALL. BY. MY. SELF (yes, I know myself is one word, but I had to separate it so that you knew that's how I was saying it. lol)

Now, whenever you hover over any of the pictures, a red P for Pinterest pops up. You can click on that P and it INSTANTLY pins! woo!!!

You have to click on the P to do that, and if the mouse is on the picture, but not on the P, you can still click on the picture to get wherever the picture is hyperlinked to.

I'm so super excited about it!!  Wanna know how to do it??? Check out the POST, where it tells you how!

That's my post for Katie's Techy Tuesday linky party!

Here's On the Menu Monday - on Tuesday - ha!

Chicken and Corn Chowder!

It's actually my friend's recipe. She sent it to me, and it is so yummy!! 
So I asked if I could share with y'all.

So - here's her recipe for it.

Start by browning garlic in a little oil, add cubed chicken and cook through. 
Add chopped green onion and celery and brown. 
Add about 3/4 C flour (give or take), then add milk (as much as it takes to thicken to desired consistency. Then add 1 package frozen creamed corn (already cooked, in a separate pan). 
Season with salt, pepper, and blacken seasoning powder. 
Top with bacon bits and green onion. 

You can add or take away ingredients as you want. She's also used broccoli instead if corn and added baked potato and shredded cheese to make a potato soup.

And I leave you with some new pictures...

Today was actually cold!!! And when I say cold, I mean it was in the low-mid 60s haha!!

BUT, I thought it was cold enough to wear a scarf.

Yeah - I was wrong. I was SOOOO hot all day long!! BUT, I was determined to keep it on, though I'm not sure why, maybe because I get like all of 5 days a year to be able to look cute in winter clothes?? haha!

And just in case you needed a smile,

B has brought one to you to turn your day around!

Gosh, I could just kiss on those chubby cheeks all day!!
nom nom nom.

Jen - she is just precious! I have to try to deal with HTML and try that Pinterest thing. I have been brave before and things have worked out so I might have to try this too. Thanks for the great tip.

Don't know what I'd do if I couldn't wear my scarves :) But, then again...I wear them when it's 70 degrees sometimes. It's winter...even if it doesn't feel that way outside! B is such a cutie!!

Thanks for the Pinterest tip! I had seen that on another blog over the weekend and was wondering how to do that. Off to play around!

I added the Pinterest button thing over the weekend and I, too, was terrified messing with the HTML but I did it and it worked and so far nothing bad has happened (knock on wood).

I love the scarf! And your daughter is so cute!!
