3) Cooking dinner for my husband makes me happy!!!! Last night I tried a slow cooker recipe and it turned out simply delicious. This picture doesn't look the most appetizing, I will be the first to admit. But it tasted fantastic and made my house smell like a home. :)
Slow Cooker Chicken Recipe:
Chicken Breasts (I used three medium sized ones)
1 Can of Cream of Chicken (can be lowfat)
1 Can of Cream of Celery (can be lowfat)
3 stalks of celery chopped up
One bag of mini carrots
One packet of Lipton Onion Soup Mix mixed with 2 cups of water
Toss all ingredients into slow cooker and let it work it's magic! You can serve over rice or pasta. I think next time I make it, I might toss in some yellow potatoes to use as a side. Its really flavorful and even Brett liked the carrots and he normally hates veggies (pray for him). Last night I just made acorn squash as a side.
2 Acorn Squash, halved and seeded
Coarse Salt and Ground Pepper
4 Tablespoons of Butter
4 Tablespoons of Maple Syrup (you can also use honey)
Grated Romano or Parmesan Cheese (optional)
Preheat oven to 450. Place squash, cut side up, on a baking sheet lined with foil. Season with salt and pepper. Place 1-2 TBSP butter in each cavity and 1 TBSP syrup. Sprinkle herbs in cavity. Roast for one hour or until very tender...baste at least twice during cooking. Top with cheese. I forgot to do the cheese last night but it was still soooooo good. Brett didn't love it. He said it was a texture thing.
Other things this week that make me happy/feel good: finding out that Brett gets THREE weeks of vacation at work starting next year, hallelujah!!!; watching Emersyn take 8ish steps last night and sharing the special moment with my mom and brother via Skype; all the amazing things I am learning in my Esther bible study and girls book club; and the fact that Fall is here, the leaves are changing and I am more in love with my husband then ever!!
What is making you happy this week? :)
