Cucumber sandwiches

I have been eating these sandwich since I was a kid, when I started eating them when I was married, Erik was like what the hell are you doing and I shoved it in his mouth and the rest was history...haha but usually I put tomato in it as well but i've been obsessed with just cucumbers lately. So I give you another way to eat cucumbers in between two pieces of bread.



Also I normally eat it with the super nutty grainy bread it's the freaking best that way but if you want go cheap like I did today through some plain wheat or white bread in the toaster.




Make sure you make five or more because they will be eaten in 5 seconds or less (no joke) and you will wish you had more to shove in your mouth :)

Pineapple Cream Pie Recipe


I learned about this recipe like a decade ago and I still love making it every summer. Living in Arizona sucks sometimes just because it's just getting hotter and hotter each year here in the desert but I do love living here it has become my home.

I believe that everything happens for a reason (not religion, i'm not religious, and no i'm not an atheist) and everything is slowly falling into place for what i'm doing in life. I wish it was going faster but at least I can say i'm finally finishing what I started so long ago.

Nurse, Air Force, Then Astrospace Engineering

 Life will be complete when I finally finish school, I can't wait to start life with my degrees. I want to show my children they can achieve anything and everything no matter what the circumstances are in life.

Off to the yummy and super easy recipe....

Chicken Enchiladas Recipe Plus Spanish Rice Recipe

When I was new in the family Ana ( Erik's mom) had me and Tricia ( Erik's sister) come over to teach us how to make chicken enchiladas.

The way Ana taught me and Tricia to cook them was to fry the corn tortillas along with a couple different variations. Over the years I adjusted the recipe and now I make it the exact same way going on about 6 years now. Every time I make them now I make two trays one for us and one for Erik's parents.

Enough rambling on, let me show you how to make some amazingly delicious chicken enchiladas. I hope you enjoy.
