Homemade Won Ton Pizza Pockets

 These were made with one pack of Won Ton Wraps.  I just added some homemade pizza sauce & cheese.
They turned out  better than I thought they would.  You could stuff them with anything you want.  My next goal is to make a sweet filling for them.  Something with cream cheese sounds yummy!

 A small dab of pizza sauce & a small cube of cheese.

                               We the edges with water and press to seal closed.  Then fold away!

Here they are baking in oven.  350 for about 10-12 min.  That is all it took.  It took longest to put them together that it did to bake them.  You could boil them also. The cheese oozed out of some of them.  I just need to seal them better next  time.

If you make them I hope you enjoy them.  What filling will you be making?

Summer Fun

( I have tried for about 6 hours to load up this video.  It wont do it so I have given up.  Now you can read the comments and just imagine the silly video of Carter and Luke in my kitchen ;-)  )

This is what children do when they get a hold of the video camera with out the parents knowledge.  Where are the parents you ask?  Out in the Living Room visiting with one another because they have not seen each other in 3 years.

The boys made about 7 videos that day.  Carter seemed to be the master mind behind it all.  So silly!  I am glad the boys enjoyed each others company so much during the visit.  I sure enjoyed

Here is everyone, except Abigail.  I was holding her, she was cranky.  It was nap time, you know how that goes.  What a great bunch of children!

Summer fun at the Splash Pad!  See in the background...our new playground equipment.  Ours needed replacement years ago.  So glad the grants were there to help out!

Julia Child eat your heart out!

       They were so much easier than I ever imagined!  So light and you can fill them with anything you want!

                 The batter was runny and needed a 15 min. rest.  I have never made them before now.       I will be  making them more often for sure!  Super easy.

I have heard that the first one never comes out, well they were right.  It was browned but it torn when I turned it.  Everyone after that was perfect!  I was so glad to  see them form so easily.  If you have not tried it you must soon. 

                                      A small 10 inch pan is all I needed.   Don't they look great!

                                                 Here is my stack, it made about 15 or so.   

My fillings were not planned out.  I just woke up and thought, "today is crepe day" so I did not have much on hand for breakfast fillings.  Plus it was hot and humid out and NO WAY was I turning on the stove for any cooking.  Or an extra burner to whip up some eggs. 

I got a little fancy with mine.  I spread strawberry jelly down the center then some sliced banana.  I put a little syrup on top for a yumo breakfast!

Abigail talking on the phone

This was back in July.  Our only daughter began walking on April Fool's Day.  She was 15 1/2 months old.  Yes, it was late, but all our children walked late.  That is just how it is.

We arrived home from church and she grabbed my cell phone as usual.  She began "talking" on it.  What a great laugh we all got out of it.  I even had happy tears in my eyes. 

Girls are SO different from boys, and I don't mean for the obvious reasons.  She walks around with a dolly and hugs on her and snuggles with her blanket.  My 5 boys talk about gross things, play with bugs, and they laugh at the oddest things.  Truth be told, I am ever so thankful that God gave s 5 boys  and 1 girl and not 5 girls and 1 boy!  I could no way handle 4 more of Abigail!  LOL

I hope you get to enjoy this video
