Well, I survived the frozen tundra of negative 30 degree wind chills this weekend.  Barely, but I survived.  Mother nature decided to not only throw negative temperatures at us, but also tons of snow, which forced everybody to be outside and shoveling snow in the extreme cold.  Oh, winter.  I was watching a golf tournament on TV Saturday (yes, that’s what happens when it’s too cold to go outside, you’re bored, and you don’t have cable television…) and they were torturing me with these gorgeous shots of Pebble beach in California.  I’ve never been there, but it looked like the most perfect paradise.  After enviously staring at it on TV throughout that afternoon I decided that’s where I want to go next on vacation.  I even looked up how much flights were to go there that very same day to escape the cold.  It turns out that it’s not cheap to buy flights the same day you want to actually fly somewhere.  Besides the fact that it was totally unrealistic to pack up and leave so spontaneously. Haha!  But now my mind is consumed with thoughts of sunshine, warmth…….. and Pebble Beach, California.

Chicken Stuffed Crescent Rolls….tender crescents wrapped around a chicken mixture to make for a hot sandwich/pocket of goodness and quickest dinner idea ever.  You can make these with chicken or even leftover turkey.  They are so savory and delicious and cook up in no time at all.  Make these comforting chicken “pillows”…and stay warm while you’re at it.

    Our weather isn’t nearly as cold (or snowy) as yours, but we still have plenty cold weather. With some snow. So I need this! Desperately craving comfort food at the moment. Thanks for this.

    We have not had the snow but we are having the cold here! Anywhere warm sound perfect to me! I am thinking my family would gobble these right up!

    Mmm, these look super simple to make! I hear you on the cold temps and snow. I’m sure you’ve had it worse though . . . today I finally dragged us all out of the house because it got above 10 degrees. It hits 30 and we start taking our coats off, haha!

    Nothing like a Rochester winter! Which is why I live in Baltimore… 🙂 All kidding aside, these are the perfect comfort food and are easy- getting you back under the blanket faster!

    We need a whole stack of these right now, Ashley! When will the frigid weather go away?! Seriously, my son would love these and what’s not to love. I’d love a few with some piping hot soup.
