Monday Morning in the Kitchen: Crockpot Chicken and Winter Vegetables

I love the convenience of a slow cooker.  I can throw something in it early in the day, when I have the most energy, and when it is dinnertime and my energy is waning, my meal is ready to eat.  This is a very simple, easily adapted, comfort food recipe.



Crockpot Chicken and Winter Vegetables

1 large chicken breast
2 potatoes
1 parsnip
2 turnips
1 carrot
1 can cream of mushroom soup
salt and pepper to taste

Cut the chicken and vegetables into bite-sized pieces.  Put everything into a 4-qt. crockpot.  Cook on high for 4 hours (or low for 8).  
Thanks for the conveniences of our day.

  1. Sounds easy and tasty, too. Parsnips are something I've never purchased or even eaten, which is odd because I love root veggies.

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: California Poppies

Spring has arrived.  On Wednesday, I took off for a few hours to hike.  The weather was perfect:  the sun was shining, the wind kept itself to a cool, slight breeze (as opposed to Thursday, when the sustained wind speed was 37.5 mph), and the temperature was warm, but not oppressive.  

My Ten Things of Thankful list this week will be mostly made of photos.  Each time I climbed another hill, or turned another corner, I was delighted with the new view.  Come along with me!

The poppy fields can be seen from miles away.

Many other people had the same idea I had on Wednesday. The line to get into the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve was longer than I've ever seen it. Many cars turned around and decided to just park on the main street and hike into the reserve.

Once I finally got the car parked and started to hike, I was greeted with wonderful views.  I hiked the steepest and furthest trails, and was rewarded by moments of solitude.
