Well, here we are again!  Hope you all had a great week!

It’s was sort of quiet around here last week.  Back to work full time after two holiday-shortened weeks, back to school for William, and back to the routines.  Holidays are done, decorations are put away, all the goodies are gone (thank goodness, I think I gained 10 pounds!), and I’m trying to get back into the routine of cooking every night.  Last week seemed like the longest week in history, but we all got through it just fine.  William ended the week on a high note, started a three-day-in-a-row field trip to Nature’s Classroom.  You would think he was excited or something…  started Friday, he had all his stuff packed in his string pack on Wednesday night!

Not a whole lot of “new” stuff going on cooking-wise, mostly old standards like coconut curry chicken and bacon and eggs, but I do have ONE new recipe for you!

Creamy Italian Chicken

3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts

1 can cream of mushroom soup

2 cans water

2 Tsp Italian seasoning blend

DASH red pepper flakes

1 Tbsp garlic powder

1 box Dreamfields pasta of your choice (I used spaghetti this time)

Put the chicken in the crock pot (yes, the crock pot again!), pour over soup and water, mix it a little.  Add in the spices and mix it a little again.  Set on HIGH 3-4 hours or low 7-8 hours, stirring occasionally.

When done, remove chicken from the pot, shred it, then add it back into the sauce.  Mix a little making sort of a shredded chicken sauce for the pasta.  Turn OFF the pot.


Cook the pasta to package directions.  Drain and add into crock pot, mix well, serve with a little Parmesan cheese or shredded cheese on top!


I think this is one of those dishes that I’m going to have to experiment with a little.  It wasn’t bad at all, but it “needed something”.  Made good leftovers!

Oh, almost forgot, here’s what I finished making this week…



P1060154 Only 1/2″ tall!


P1060156 This one is 1″ tall…

Anyway, that’s about it for this week.  Gonna go play with some beads for a while…
