Day 5 & 6 – Recipes and Love

Hey, hey, hey! I’m going to combine days 5 and 6 since I got behind.

Day 5 – Recipes I love – oh wow…there are so many! I love to cook. I don’t have a lot of time for it during the school year, at least not to do it the way I would like, so I have a few quick easy recipes that I use a lot! I think I will share a couple of those. I’m a huge fan of the crock pot and am always on the lookout for great crock pot recipes. Here’s a couple that I use often:

Cube Steak Crock Pot:
1 lb Cube Steak
1 envelope brown gravy mix
1 envelope mushroom gravy mix
1 envelope onion gravy mix
1 onion (sliced)
3 C water

Flour and brown the cube steaks and lay them in the bottom of the crock pot. Add the sliced onions on top. Then add 2 C of the water. Cook on low for 8 hours. Mix the remaining cup of water with the gravy mixes and pour in for the last half hour of cooking.

Easy peasy, huh! And it is sooo yummy. The cube steak comes out so tender!

Chicken Crock Pot:
4 Chicken breasts
1 lg can Cream of Chicken or Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 sm can chicken broth

All I do is lay the chicken breasts on the bottom of the crock pot. Pour in the soup and chicken broth and let it cook on low for 6 hours or so. When it’s done, shred the chicken in the soup. You can serve this over rice, noodles, or biscuits.

Another easy one, huh! My family loves both of these. I fix them both in the crock pot the night before and then just plug them in when I leave in the morning…done when I get home from work!

Day 6 – A picture of something that makes you happy – there are lots of things that make me happy…my children, sunshine, warmth…but since I post pictures of my kids and such all the time I’m going to go with something that makes me happy daily no matter what else is going on…..

Ahhhhhhh Mr. Keurig and I are having a torrid affair. He knows just how I like it and is always warm and inviting and never lacking in flavor!! 🙂 I LOVE him!! I even have a smaller version that I take on vacation with me. I have decided that I could live without many things in my life, but not my Keurig! LOL

K..that’s it from me for today. I’m going to shower and head out to wonderful WalMart (ugh) and try to get some relax time in today! Hope you all are having a fantastic weekend! We are supposed to hit 50 today, I’m so excited!

  1. I don't drink coffee but I just found out that Mr. Keurig is actually a really stand-up guy. Jenn (JK703) just got her entire machine replaced with a quick call… I think she was looking for where to send it for repairs. What a great company!
