Chicken - 4 ways

February 7th, 2007 at 04:07 pm

Yesterday I put a while chicken in the crockpot for dinner that evening. It was actually a rather large chicken - we normally do not buy them that large. I ended up with 4 meals with this one chicken.

1. Roasted chicken from the crock pot. I season the chicken with seasoning salt and cook it on aluminum foil balls in the crock pot.

2. I used part of the leftover chicken and made chicken and wild rice soup for later this week. I was also able to use celery that was starting to get flimsy that I probably would have thrown out in a few days.

3. Chicken salad sandwich for lunch today. Again, I used up a little more of the celery that would have gone to waste.

4. Chicken for my youngest DDs lunch for today and tomorrow. To save a little $ I pack my DDs lunch everyday for daycare.

Cook once - eat 4 times. I love it!

Working at home today

January 26th, 2007 at 03:05 pm

I took the day off from my real job today to start getting paperwork organized for our taxes. I also need to do some research on what we can deduct and how much for our home business. With two little ones running around, I have been finding it hard to do this type of stuff on the weekends.

I would rather be at work - I just cannot get motivated. The girls were dropped off at daycare an hour ago and I haven't started. I have made myself a sausage mc muffin, threw out old leftovers in the fridge and sat here at the computer and read my favorite blogs.

Well I guess I better get started. I told myself if I could work 4 good hours today I would go to the gym or something else later today.
