TEN THOUSAND Hits?!?

This post will remain at the top until the drawing. Scroll down for the new stuff - and believe me, I have a LOT of new stuff to share this week. Also coming soon, some PIF candy (so much stuff to give away, so little time!).

Oh my gosh - I just noticed that my little hit counter has spun itself past 10,000 hits! Can you believe it? How fun is that, anyway? Between all the wonderful stamping time I got yesterday at Scrap Mania (hi Heather!) and this *serious* blog milestone, I declare it to be Stampin' Party Time!

You know what that means -- Blog Bling!

Isn't it beautiful?? You didn't think I'd pass up the chance to share something shiny, did ya? The lucky winner will receive a brand new set of Shimmers Pearlescent Chalks from Pebbles, Inc., a 5-yard roll of yummy yummy two-tone grosgrain ribbon (light and dark pink), and a brand new wood-mounted stamp from Inkadinkadoo. I have both color sets of these shimmery chalks myself and I love them. I haven't used those "regular" ones since I opened these.

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post - any old comment will do. Tell me about yourself, what you like or don't like about my blog, share a recipe, a funny story, whatever! I'm easy. *wink*. ALSO -- you may enter this drawing EVERY DAY, until the end of the contest. Just leave a comment on THIS post, one per person per day please.

I'll use a random number generator to choose a winner on Saturday, April 12th at 10 AM (central time).

97 people made my day!:

Love your blog! Thought I'd share this recipe my husband and I got in the Amish country this weekend. The salsa is made here in Ohio. You can probably order it over the internet. Just do a search for Jose Madrid Salsa or try calling the Walker Food Group at 1(877)745-7207.

Raspberry Chicken
4 Servings
1-12oz.jar Jose Madrid Raspberry
Salsa
4 Boneless/skinless Chicken Breasts
2 Cups cooked rice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place the chicken breasts in a baking dish. Add approx. 1 inch of water. To tenderize chicken,poke holes in chicken with a fork.
Bake for 45 minutes.
When chicken is finished, on 4 plates layer, rice,salsa and a chicken breast.

*The woman who made the recipe at the Amish country chopped the chicken breasts into bite size pieces, added them to the rice then stirred in the salsa for a one dish meal.
Enjoy!
