Back to School Chicken Potato Corn Chowder Slow Cooker Recipe

15 Aug

Back to school means more than just the beginning of the school year but also the beginning of all those activities that keep us running.  It is also a time where we vow to be more organized, planned, and on top of our time management. Fall signifies our best intentions and with a little extra planning those good intentions can become successful weeks, months, and beyond.

If you’re looking for some fresh inspiration then join me here for the next ten days as I share five of our family favorite slow cooker recipes and five of our favorite make ahead breakfasts.

Today,  I will be sharing a hearty chowder perfect for those hectic days and even better is that all the prep can be done the night before.

Huge Aldi Grocery Haul 5-25-2016

1 Jun

Two to three times a year I like to “shop” my pantry, freezer, and fridge.  I like to use up what we have.  I find that I waste a lot less food doing this.  I love that it gets me to be more creative in the kitchen and it makes it easier to clean the fridge and pantry J I’m all about that…BTW, I just read an article that said homemakers in the 50’s did over 50 hours of housework a week…..phew…..I am so grateful for modern conveniences!

I love watching and seeing what others are shopping for so I thought I would once again share my Aldi grocery haul.

I share that I like to use coconut oil as a moisturizer but am pretty clueless on how to cook with it!  I would love to see how you use it. Please leave a link or recipe in the comments…I would LOVE to check it out!

Lest we Forget

28 May

I am so grateful for the brave men and women who headed the call and left what was familiar and comfortable for a life of upheaval and uncertainty. Today I pause with reflective prayer to honor those who gave their all…the fallen brave who courageously breathed their last breath defending the country and the people they so loved.

To the families who gather around a grave rather than a grill-my prayer is that our Heavenly Father will fill them with grace, peace, and healing. That they would find comfort in each other and that the sweet memories of their loved ones will sustain them until they are reunited in Heaven. Thank you, for your great sacrifice also!

 

As you enjoy your 3 day weekend please remember and pray for all the brave men and women in our military. Pray for the mothers and fathers who will never hold their precious boys and girls in their arms again, for the wives and husbands who will never get to live out the hopes and dreams they planned together, and for the precious children who will never feel the tickle of daddy’s whiskers on their cheek or the soft embrace of their mother’s arms again. The burden is too great to let this weekend go by without a heartfelt sense of gratitude for the meaning behind our three day weekend.

Chicken Pasta Salad

2 May

I am a use up the leftovers kind of gal (one of the things my family loves most about me 😉 ).

I am also a lover of a quick, throw together, minimal dishes kind of meal.  This recipe is a perfect combination of both.  If you are feeling my sentiments than this is for you!

The Day our Music Died

22 Apr

It was a day that will become an “Where were you when” iconic conversation.

The news that Prince had died pulled the heartstrings of people from around the world.

Someone asked, “How can millions mourn a man they never knew?”.  Good question and I think it’s because music is nostalgic.  No one did it bigger or with more influence for this generation than he did.

Nothing has the power to move us and to transport us to a single moment quite like music.  Music helps us to retell our stories and helps preserve our memories. These moments all come together as a unique soundtrack, different like a finger print and it becomes our storyteller.

When he died, of course we mourned the man but also we mourned a piece of our youth that died that morning.

Being Minnesotan we love our own and he felt like ours.  His death brought out a unity in our city that we haven’t seen in a long time.  That day where once stood an enemy became a friend and where once stood a stranger became a brother and sister.  We put our petty differences aside and came together shoulder to shoulder and hand in hand in unity to honor a man passionate about his craft, his city, and his people.

The young and young at heart took to the chilly Minnesota streets to celebrate music, love, life, and humanity.

We were all moved by his talent, his presence on stage, and his quiet thoughtful nature off  stage.

Let our own lives reflect the goodness that brings people together and may we live in such a way that when our curtain falls for the last time that our music will also live on.

Thanks for reading.
