That sounds delicious!! Thanks so much for another great week.

BTW--your blog took a really long time to load this morning--I had to refresh 3 times before it fully loaded?? hmm...not sure if it's just me.

Sounds YUMMY!
Ok, so the home and pumpkin pictures have me mega sad for fall. I live in the southwest and no fall here (at least not within a 3 hour drive).
I am a SAHM of two boys.
Have a BLESSED day!

I'm looking forward to trying these great recipes! This has been so nice for our family on those busy days! Thanks!

Michelle said...

I'd love to try these, but it's so hard to cook for just myself, and Kayla (who hardly eats anything for dinner!) and then have all these leftovers. I might have to wait until Joe gets back to make this one!

Do you HAVE to brown the chicken first? Could I get away with just doing it all in the Crock Pot?
