Perking up!

Yesterday, Jen asked me how the Crock Pot Girls' Balsamic Chicken turned out...I realized that I neglected to post my review...whoops! Well, it was delicious, I definitely recommend it. Here's the recipe:

Balsamic Chicken
  • 4-6 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
  • 2-14.5 oz. cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced (Not chopped)
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsps. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. each: dried oregano, basil, and rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • ground black pepper and salt to taste

Pour the olive oil on bottom of crock pot.
Place in chicken breasts, salt and pepper each breast.
Put sliced onion on top of chicken.
Then put in all the dried herbs and garlic cloves.
Pour in vinegar and top with tomatoes.

Cook on low 8 hours or high 4 hours, serve over angel hair pasta.

I really liked the texture of the chicken. It was moist and tender, and of course very flavorful. Leftovers were delicious the next day!
I went grocery shopping this morning, and I was happy to see that this seasonal item was back:
These muffins are soooo good. With a cup of coffee, yum! It's autumn, baby!
Annabelle's birthday party is this weekend, and one of the things we're planning to do is make these cute candy creatures from American Girl magazine...
Aren't they cute? So I've been collecting supplies...starbursts, candy dots, etc. At Wegman's today, they had Runts in the bulk candy section, so I picked out a whole bunch of bananas to use for those little horns. The checkout lady must have been wondering about that one! I mean who would pick the bananas if you were just going to snack on them, am I right? LOL
I'm feeling much better today. Thanks for all the well-wishes, I appreciate them a lot. I might not even take a nap this afternoon! Well we'll see about that. Don't forget, check back tomorrow because I will announce the winner of the Gooseberry Patch Tiny Tips book giveaway! Didn't enter yet? You can do so here.
See you tomorrow! Here's a pic of me and the kids from the weekend...
