On Friday a new love was brought into my life. I posted about it on Twitter so that you could all experience my joy in welcoming her to her new home. Aren’t you all so grateful for that?
It all started when three packages arrived at my door.
And then I realized who this one package was from.
That creepy little smiley grin! (You may remember creepy smiley grin bringing this love to me as well). Creepy smiley grin and I have a confusing relationship. He creeps me out, yet brings me things I love.
But this time creepy smiley grin outdid himself. Because I was in shock when I started to open the package.
I couldn’t believe it! My new crock pot had arrived! And so quickly!
You creepy smiley grin, you. You keep me guessing, don’t you? I didn’t even pay for shipping, let alone overnight shipping! Yet you knew my children desperately needed their mom to have a crock pot again. I think I love you creepy smiley grin, yet I still hate you.
It’s like I said before, our relationship is complicated.
Anyway. Upon realizing that this was in fact my new crock pot, I had to coax her out of the box a little.
And then I had to encourage her some to get her comfortable in her new home.
And then I realized you all might think I was a little weird.
But I got over it.
And now, I have to tell you how in love I am with my new crock pot! I used her the very next day.
“Used” sounds harsh for those you love. Scratch that. I put her to work the very next day. She got busy cooking and turning my random tossings of food that I put in her into something we could all eat. And she was so efficient! (I must have made her really welcomed in her new home that she would work so hard for me!)
What a good crock pot. (Need a good crock pot? Here’s the one I am raving about!)
And now, in honor of my new love, I will share with you the recipe I threw in to her and that she turned into this. (Sorry, the picture isn’t too appetizing. I forgot to take one BEFORE we started eating it, but I promise, it really was good!)
And also in honor of my new crock pot, I will be sharing lazy recipes ALL WEEK! Plus some other new kitchen things I have discovered and now love.
So check back daily for a new lazy recipe all week this week! It’s going to be fun!
Today’s lazy recipe…
Lazy Crock Pot Chicken and Potatoes
(Need a new crock pot? Here’s the one I love!)
Chicken (any kind will work… breasts, legs, thighs)
Any oil based salad dressing you love
Cut potatoes into bite sized wedges and throw them in the bottom of your crock pot. Simply put in as many as you will need to feed your family.
Put your chicken on top of your layer of potatoes. Frozen chicken definitely works too. I don’t believe in defrosting… I’m too lazy for that.
Pour a good amount of salad dressing over your chicken and potatoes. They don’t need to drown in it, but there should be at least enough to make everything wet.
Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 6 hours.
And you’re done!
A very lazy dinner indeed!
Come back tomorrow for another lazy mom recipe! I’ve got some good ones up my sleeve!
