Prairie School Farms..... Does it again

I can't say enough good things about Prairie School Farms!
 Kansas Agri-Women toured their alpaca farm last October and I posted about it here.

Then she posted about my hand made jewelry, here

They have done it again, they posted about Dirt, Denim & Diamonds! Hop over there and read about it, here.

I will say, she forgot one exciting bit of news, she will be the main speaker at the conference on Saturday Aug 11!

Buffalo Chicken Bread Roll

*Pinterest Tested
Reminds me of the Pizza Rolls at Old Chicago. Recipe is from Finding A New Life Through Food.
It turned out really well and the fam wants me to keep the recipe around!


2 boneless chicken breasts
1 tsp. olive oil
1 pizza dough (I used the tube ones, like the biscuits)
8 oz. of shredded mozzarella cheese
3 oz. of shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup of Franks Wing Sauce
1/3 cup of ranch or blue cheese dressing

Cut chicken into cubes. Season with salt and pepper. Heat teaspoon of olive oil in skillet and add chicken when hot. Cook chicken completely and then add 1/4 cup of wing sauce. Stir to coat chicken and let simmer for a minute or two. Take chicken off heat and let cool.

Pre-heat oven to 425°F.
On a well floured surface, spread pizza dough into a long rectangle shape.

Add ranch dressing or blue cheese dressing (depending on your preference!) and remaining 1/4 cup of wing sauce. Spread across the dough. Add chicken and then top with mozzarella and cheddar cheese. You can also add a bit more of the wing sauce on top of the cheese if you want it to be a little bit spicier.

Roll the dough like a pinwheel until you reach the end. Make sure to tuck the ends of the dough in so the middle doesn’t ‘ooze’ out when baking.

Spray baking sheet with light coat of non-stick cooking spray. Place garbage bread on the pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
Let sit for five minutes and cut into and enjoy!

No Nicaragua

Where have you been?- some might be asking.

I was supposed to be in Nicaragua today. My flight was planned to leave OKC at 5:30am, but I had an emergency root canal. Long story...they said I needed it pulled ASAP, then they said they would try to save it, so a root canal it was. Well, that didn't go as smoothly as they had hoped, yadda yadda..... Flying was against doctors orders so here I am still in Kansas.

This too partially explains my lack of blogging. The other is that I have been super busy with other things in life. One of those being planning of a womens conference called Dirt, Denim & Diamonds. Check it out!

My new goal is to at least blog once a week this summer....thank goodness this week is taken care of now :)
