Snow Days!

Today is snow day #3 for our school system and Mike has already cancelled school for tomorrow!  Kyle stresses about every day missed because he is afraid it is taking his pool time at the summer away:)  Like most of the country we have had crazy, frigid temps with a bonus couple inches of snow. 

Each snow day I have tried to tackle a big project.  Yesterday Hope and I made freezer meals when life gets busy again.  This girl loves to be in the kitchen with me.  Snow days are a good day to have her cook with me because we are not rushing to put dinner on the table before heading out to an evening event. 
Doesn't the snow look so pretty?  The kids really want to go out and romp and play but the frigid temps have made that not an option. 
One of the meals that we made that was a hit was Cheesy Chicken Chalupas.  Here is the recipe for this easy, yet impresive meal. 

Cheesy Chicken Chalupas

2 cans of cream of chicken
16 oz. of sour cream
4 oz of green chiles (I only used half the can roughly 2 ounces because we are not big fans)
3 green onions choppped (I went light on these also)
1/2 onion chopped
3 cups of cheddar cheese
4 to 5 chicken breasts cooked and diced (a rotissere chicken would work well also)
8 10 inch tortillas
2 cups of shredded colby jack cheese

Mix together cream of chicken soup, sour cream, both onions and chiles, and cheddar cheese in a large bowl.  Then scoop out 1 1/2 cups to reserve for topping for later.  In the original bowl add chicken to the mixture.  Spoon chicken mixture into the middle of the tortillas.  Roll them up and lay them side by side in a baking pan.  Spread reserved soup mixture over the top of the rolled up tortillas.  Sprinkle with colby jack shredded cheese.  Bake covered with foil at 350 degrees for one hour.  If you want them crispier you can broil for a minute or two at the end of baking. 

I served it with a salal and everyone but David ate it. Leftovers were great today for lunch!

Besides my cleaning and cooking spree we have also been playing board games in the evening.  Hope loves to play her princess Yahtzee game.  We are a very competive bunch!! Ha!
David got so cold at supper tonight we wrapped himself up in a blanket!  Baby it is cold outside!!!!
