Today I’m pretty sure we used every new wedding gadget we’ve gotten. Tim made delicious waffles in the waffle iron for breakfast, and I used the bread machine, crockpot and food processor with great success today.
Meet Super Delicious Salsa Slow Cooker Chicken.
Ugly, yes. Delicious, yes.
I basically cobbled this together from various recipes I’d found online. I dumped the following into the crockpot:
- 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 small bag frozen corn
- 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1/2 brick reduced fat cream cheese
- 1 1/2 c. salsa (We used Pace Mild salsa, blended smooth in the Magic Bullet with a small container of Chipotle hot salsa—our favorite! We are anti chunk.)
Then…you just let it peace out in the crockpot on low for about six hours, and serve over some brown rice.
Southpaw was stalking Tim’s plate. Super good and filling, and there’s enough leftovers for dinner tomorrow!
I also made this beauty today:
We’ll call this…honey mixed nut butter. Unless anyone else has a more creative idea. Again, an easy recipe.
Into the food processor went:
- 1/4 c. salted peanuts
- 1/4 c. macadamia nuts
- 1/4 c. almonds
- 1/4 c. pecans
- 1/4 c. hazelnuts
- 1 T. honey
Blend until smooth. Easy peasy and delicious.
The nut butter will go on this:
The loaf of honey wheat bread in the bread machine. This will probably go in with Tim to work. But I’m considering keeping it. Hee.
Also today: I did about 10 loads of laundry, vacuumed the entire house, cleaned the bathroom, and got the guest bedroom in a state where I WOULDN’T be embarrassed for people to see it. Our house is finally starting to look like normal again. I love it so.
And Tim did this!
Wall mount wine rack! (He also took my car for an oil change and returned a duplicate gift. God bless him.)
I am currently decompressing with this.
Operation Break In Orthotics has not gone as well as I’d planned. Mainly because it’s been POURING here. I’ve tried. I’m going to do my best to drag my lazy butt to the gym tomorrow after work and hopefully break them in with some run-walk intervals for awhile.
Four days until we leave for the honeymoon! I can’t wait!
