Dinner 101

One of our goals for 2012 is to eat out less, which means we have to cook!
...let me make this clear, I DO NOT COOK!!!   So since I do not want my family to starve,
I have been learning to cook, well to throw stuff into a crock pot and forget it.

This has become one of our favorite go-to quick recipes which I discovered online.
My only mod is that I use Cream of Mushroom Soup.

Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings

Prep Time:
10 Min
Cook Time:
6 Hrs
Ready In:
6 Hrs 10 Min

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons butter
2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of chicken soup
1 onion, finely diced
2 (10 ounce) packages refrigerated biscuit dough, torn into pieces

Place the chicken, butter, soup, and onion in a slow cooker, and fill with enough water to cover.
Cover, and cook for 5 to 6 hours on High. About 30 minutes before serving, place the torn biscuit dough in the slow cooker. Cook until the dough is no longer raw in the center.

...out with the old- in with the new.

Happy New Year!  Out with the old and in with the new!

This year for me will be a Holy Year- I will be more intentional in my daily devotions, attendance to sunday services, focusing our family towards service, prayers with EJ nightly, turning to God first!

This will be a Healthy Year- I will once again participate in the Avenue of the Giants 1/2 Marathon. I will once again been participating in the EA Active 30day Challenge. Once EJ goes to bed at 8pm only then will I will watch Days and use the eliptical, I will be in bed with lights out by 10pm.

This will be a Happy Year- From intentionally surrounding myself with positive people, focusing my crafting to specific projects, and working/challenging ourselves to become debt free. Slowing down and enjoying a novel, and I will be taking pleasure in simple things.

My resolutions are simple:
1. work my way through the bible in a year
2. FPU baby steps 1 and 2
3. post every sunday night on this blog (yes i already failed)
4. be more active- train for a 1/2 marathon
5. keep positive, remember who and what actually matters!!
