Prouty Pumpkin!

Using all of my "gently used" craft supplies (actually, I haven't had the stencils out in ...errr...15 plus years), I created a little Prouty pumpkin for our front porch for the trick or treaters to enjoy on Halloween.  

The World Series is on this very minute, and the Red Sox are ahead of the St. Louis Cardinals 6-0, so little pumpkin only got a dash of ribbons on her stem.  Back to the TV and the World Series!

Momma's Chicken and Cream Cheese Roll-Ups

Whoa, these chicken roll-ups are so tender and yummy!  Did I say tender?  Crescent rolls do that to me every time.  It's like a pillow stuffed with chicken and cheese that melts in your mouth!

These would make a great dinner for a busy Christmas Eve.

Chicken and Cream Cheese Roll-Ups with Chicken Gravy

3 chicken breasts, cooked and chopped
2 pkg of Pillsbury Grands Big & Buttery Crescent Rolls (pkg of 8)
1 small can mushrooms, drained
1 8 oz pkg soft cream cheese (cubed)
2 T melted butter
1/2 teas. oregano
1/2 teas. garlic salt
1/2 teas. onion salt
1/2 teas. poultry seasoning
1/4 teas. pepper
1 pkg McCormick Chicken Gravy Mix 

Mix together cooked chicken, softened cubed cream cheese, mushrooms, melted butter and spices.

Roll out crescent rolls, place a big spoonful of chicken mixture on the wide-end of the roll, and roll it up, tucking the ends in.

Place roll-ups point side down - on a cookie sheet (I lined mine with my Silpat baking liner).  Bake at 350' for 12-14 minutes until golden.

Makes 16 roll-ups.
Serve with chicken gravy or cream of chicken soup if desired, pour over the roll-ups.
