Not every day looks like the one in the previous post. Thank heavens. Today is a lighter day.
I love days when we can just stay at home. I can stay in my yoga pants, and I can spend as much time as I want snuggling and playing with my kids.
I am glad that I have some of both. Wouldn't life be boring if everyday was the same?
Many of you asked when I have time to blog. Well, I don't. If you haven't noticed from my sporatic postings.
I do some at night after the kids are in bed. Sometimes, I am able around 4:00 when the kids get home from school and entertain each other. It works perfect today because I don't have to start dinner at 4:00. It is already in the crock pot. Tonight we are having Chicken Lasagna.
Last night for dinner, we had Hawaiian Chicken from Kara Eastham.
Here is how I would rank it:
How Easy? 10
This was super simple. Just throw it in the crock pot.
This has really great flavor. It was not a favorite for my kids, but they are hard to please. My chicken got a little over done. I think it would have tasted better if I didn't cook it quite as long and the chicken was more tender. I did use fresh pineapple, and that tasted really yummy.
It was nice in color, and looked pretty over the rice. I used Basmati Rice instead of long grain.
Clean Up? 10
Super simple, would have been easier if I didn't let my rice boil over. Hey; I was in the middle of sewing Easter dresses. Sometimes juggling is hard for me.
This meal was super dooper cheap. It cost me about $6.00 to feed my family.
I hope you take the time to try out these great recipes.
