I made my first homemade tortillas today...well, sort of.  We ended up only making like 7 from a batch thats supposed to make 24, but ours were much bigger, and we deep fried them, and threw away some of the dough (thinking realistically and knowing that it wouldn't get eaten).  They ended up more like navajo tacos, er..scones.  I decided to cover mine in cinnamon and sugar and have them that way, and hubby had them with chicken and enchilada sauce on them...he said his was okay, and mine, well...amazing of course!  You can't go wrong with elephant ears!  I had pasta roni instead of the chicken, I am definitely a pasta lover, thats for sure! 

Hubby's brother moved out to his own house here a couple of weeks ago (well, sort of, he still comes by quite often).  We're pretty jealous of him.  And also, hub's mom and dad are gone all week on vacation (at least until they come home early, if they do)!  Sooooo....we have the house to ourselves!!  YAY!  Let the yelling commence!  (not fight-y yelling, fun yelling)  However, I half expect his other brother to come, because he usually tends to drop in for a couple of days to visit precisely when everyone else is gone!  I'm starting to think its a conspiracy!

I've been shirking my duties here at this blog, and in place, have been concentrating most of my efforts on the other blog for our "business"... that one is
Check it out if you like!  We're doing decently well with it, and hopefully things get way better!!  We have some possibilities, but more than likely, nothing will come of it! :) Oh well..
As an update to our chicken situation, new batman died the other day...we think he got sick or something, he didn't look very good and wasn't acting normal for a few days before that...It made me pretty sad.  We also had one of the brownies die too...we think she got a cold or respiratory issue or something, she wasn't breathing too good several days before, we also think that she was a lot older than the guy we bought them from led me to believe.  Mind you, these deaths happened maybe a week or 2 apart, I hope they aren't related in any way. 
Also, I took the title insurance exams that were necessary to get my title license!  AND...PASSED BOTH OF THEM!!!!  WOOO HOOO!!!!  Its very exciting!!  Now I just have to apply to get my license and I should finally be official!  YAY!!
What else...I'm in a dinner/cooking rut.  And it really sucks!  I have like 30 cookbooks, but I don't use them, but I want to use them, but most of the food in them is unreasonable for us, our tastes, our finances and our situation...Perhaps it would be different in my own kitchen.  Doubtful.  But maybe...I don't know.  I think I just need to go with recipes and foods that we use all the time, and make two 2 week menus...I think that would be best, they will both be slightly different, so we shouldn't get worn out on them.  Plus, with a menu like that, we should save a bit on groceries...I swear, when I get home from grocery shopping, you would think that I was feeding a family of 4 or something like that, not just me and my husband!  My goodness! 
Well, I should go check on the babies (chickies) and gather the eggs.  Have a lovely evening! :)
