I love crescent rolls y’all!
Just like my marshmallow puffs, and my cinnamon roll-ups, they’re so guuuwwwd!
This is so so so so so so sososososososososo easy, but I thought, I’m going to share this with y’all in case no one else had thought of it either.
I felt so *Rachel Ray-ish*, bein’ all good and using up my leftovers!
So here’s how it all went down.
I had some chicken.
I added some salsa, and enchilada sauce.
I put it in the crock pot.
One night I made tostadas.
Then I had alllll this chicken meat I forgot about.
Being resourceful, and loving crescent rolls, I thought “I’m going to make an open faced chicken roll-up!
Step One. Roll the crescent dough into a pan.
Step Two. Dump chicken meat onto dough.
Step Three. Sprinkle with cheese.
Bake. Eat. Repeat!
Easy as pie y’all.
Now, I’m moving and couldn’t find my big glass pan, so I just folded the excess dough over the last third of chicken, so those people eating will get a stuffed chicken sandwich. Actually, I made those once too, GOOD!
Y’all kids are going to love making this! Assign one of y’all’s little children to make this one night next week! I should’ve made this with my cooking club three years ago. *Sigh*, miss that.
~Peace, Love, and Crescent dough y’all

Soooooo, I’m going on this really big trip tomorrow!!!!
I have won, that’s right ladies and gents, WON a ticket to the MixedCon food convention!!!!
Y’all check out their site. It’s hosted by Susan of Doughmesstic, and Paula of bell’alimento at the Mountain Lake Hotel in Pembroke, VA.
Like, I went to Virginia once 6 years ago when my college roomie (Hi Annie!!!) moved to DC. It was pretty fantabulous.
Plus, unlike in Texas, it will be cold, and have fall colors and stuff.
Yes, in other parts of the country, they experience four seasons and changing colors of the leaves!!
Aaaaaandddd, if you haven’t clicked on any of those links already, IT’S WHERE THEY FILMED DIRTY DANCING!!!!
I’ve never seen it.
I know, I know, I know.
WHAAA? Am I American? Yes, I’ve seen 16 Candles, ok???
like 8, correction – 4 when the movie came out, and my friends and I were busy talking about NKOTB .
Yeah, I was Hangin’ Tough.
Oh, so Exhibit A, the first picture above, is my awesome new name tag designed by JenHeartsArt.
It makes me feel all official and stuff.
Then, Purr Design, who also did my blog, desgined my AWESOME business cards… and I’ve already mailed off a couple to every family member.
MAN, I’m lookin’ good thanks to these ladies!
Ok. So I’m like so crazy excited, I’ma ’bout to pee my pants. All my *invisible blogger friends*, my husband still thinks it’s weird, we’ve been tweeting about how we’re going to football tackle each other when we finally get to meet.
Yeah, tackle, it’s like that.
Um, HELLO, we’ve like SO Face-timed, ok?
In fact, I’m writing this post, and still haven’t packed.
But I’m like totally packed in my mind.
So, you’ll be seeing lots of group photos and crazy shenanigans over the next few days on Twitter and Instagram and Facebook, so be ready.
I’ll try to make a couple posts if possible.
But… I might be busy hanging out in pajama pants and eating cookies and mac n’ cheese and hanging out with Carrie, Megan, Kirsten, Lauren, and all the other fabulous ladies I’m about to meet.
So I’m feeling really good about it, totally excited, and really quite ecstatic to meet all these girls.
Yeah, I’ve got a peaceful, easy feeling.
Oh, and just because I love you, I was tickled pink that the Holiday Guide from William’s Sonoma came in today.
WOW. MOUTH WATERING.
Let me just say that my family bought the chocolate croissants (said with a French accent) last year, and they WILL be a regular tradition.
Y’all get on their site. Best foodie gifts ever. PLUS, they have all these cool bee hives and cheese kits and kombucha jars to make any foodie go wild.
Hint, hint husband if you’re reading this. I SAID BEE HIVE.
He always like to come back with this whole “Ohh, but I’m allergic to bees” thing. Ugh.
Why are men so difficult?
It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to. I want a bee hive.
~Peace, Love, and Dirty Dancing Y’all!
This Hill Country Cook is off to pack!
