Know when to fold 'em...

The resident teen and I were watching "Hoarders" the other night (have you seen that show?  It always makes me want to clean.) and my mind started racing... so much so that I said out loud, "oh my gosh - do you think that's ME in a few years?"

His response was this:
"no Mom, you get rid of stuff... these people don't get rid of anything."

Do you hear that bird chirping?  I wonder what kind it is...

I love that kid.  He's so delusional - and OBVIOUSLY has not been in the "la.bor.a.tory" recently. 

But I have been!  I went into lock-down Friday night and only came up for air yesterday!!!  The count down is ON for you to take the tour of the mad-lab!

Sometimes though - when a girl is all bizzzzzy folding and stuff she gets hungry (and she can't cook - and the fire department LIKES her locked up in the la.bor.a.tory)...

1 lb ground beef
1/4 cup onion, chopped
3/4 cup barbecue sauce
6 slices American cheese or monterey jack and cheddar cheese blend or mozzarella cheese
2 (8 ounce) cans refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

In a skillet, brown meat and onions over medium heat; drain.
Stir in sauce, then set aside.
Pre-heat oven to 375°F.
On an ungreased cookie sheet, unroll crescent rolls into 4 triangles, overlapping on the long sides.
Firmly press perforations and edges to seal, and pat to form 15x13" rectangle.
Spread meat mixture lengthwise in a 4" wide strip down the center of dough to within 1" of ends.
Top meat with cheese.
Fold sides and ends of dough 1" over filling.
Bring long ends over, crimping the edges.
Pinch edges to seal.
Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

... and she starts to wonder...  What time is dinner at your house tonight?
