Rag Curls (with socks)

Madi and I decided to curl our hair with socks, here is some pics :)

 Take the sock and roll the hair in it like a roller, then tie the ends together...  This time I did only three socks, the next time I put two on top so it was curlier.

I found this yummy recipe for crescent rolls from your homebased mom

Crescent Rolls
Printable Recipe
2/3 C sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick (1/2 C) butter
1 C boiling water
Combine first 3 ingredients.  Pour water over all and allow sugar to dissolve and butter to melt.
Cool slightly so the water is not too hot when you add the yeast in.
Add 2 packages of dry active yeast to 1 C warm water.
Soak yeast in warm water for 5 minutes.  Add to sugar mixture.
2 well beaten eggs
6 C flour
Add eggs and flour to mixture and blend well.  Dough will be soft and a little sticky.  At this point the dough can be put into a bowl with a tight lid and refrigerated overnight.  Or you can just allow it to raise for about 1 hour in the mixing bowl.  Cover with a towel.  After raising put onto a floured covered surface. Divide dough in half.  Add in enough flour so the dough is workable and not too sticky.  Roll out into a 12 inch circle.  Cut into 12 pie shaped pieces.  Roll up into a crescent roll.  Do the same with the other half of the dough. Place on baking sheet and allow to rise for about one hour or until doubled in size.  Bake at 350 for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
If you have refrigerated the dough just remove from the refrigerator 3 hours prior to baking and roll out the dough, form into crescents and let rise for 3 hours.
Makes 24 good size rolls.

Ranch Chicken and Cheesy Roasted Potatoes

First I defrosted and rinsed my chicken.

Then I drizzled the chicken with extra virgin olive oil, after covering the chicken with olive oil I covered the chicken with a ranch dip seasoning.  I marinated them like that for about an hour.

Then I seared the chicken on the stove top

After I placed them in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes.

Next I made some yummy cheesy potatoes.

I cut up 4 red potatoes and put them in a bowl, I put in a teaspoon of olive oil, salt, pepper, and a pinch of garlic salt, then I added a cup of sharp cheddar.  I stirred it all around and placed them on a cookie sheet.  I put them in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes. (I forgot to take pics till the end, sorry)

And here is the final product!!!
(The potatoes were the best!!!!  I could've just ate that for dinner)
It was so yummy!!!!
If I had to do it over I would finish cooking the chicken on the stove top, I love the taste of chicken cooked on the stove.
