Thankful Thursday: July 28

I truly believe it is important to be thankful everyday. Without gratitude, there is no reason for it all. I also blog about my gratitude over at Learning From Duramax. How better learn about gratitude than to learn from the most compassionate creatures over created.

Today I am Thankful for Family








This is Duramax and his old friend Thunder


This is my Momma and my little sister.

What are you Thankful for?

    I think about that all the time.

  4. Hello Brandi,
    I went back and further checked again and 2 of the links were not working. I fixed them and thank you for letting me know. Here is the link to the page if you want to try again.

    Also, loved the pics. I use to have a boxer too, very comical dogs, great with kids and very protective.

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

BROCCOLI CHEDDAR CHICKEN BRAID

Ingredients
2 cans Pillsbury Original Crescent Rolls
2 cups chicken chunks, cooked
2 cups cheddar cheese
2 cups broccoli, frozen, steamed and chopped
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1 egg yolk
fresh rosemary

Instructions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, spread both cans of crescents length wise to form a long rectangle.
Press each of the seams to form a single layer of dough.
In a large bowl, combine chicken, cheese, broccoli and mayonnaise
Spread mixture over the center of the croissant dough evenly to create a log.
Using a sharp knife, cut horizontal strips 1 inch apart down each side of the crescent dough.
Fold the dough strips over the top of the chicken mixture, alternating left and right to create a braid.
Brush the top of the braid with a beaten egg yolk and sprinkle fresh rosemary on top.
Bake for 28 – 30 minutes until golden brown.

How perfect does this sound for an easy Friday night din…
