(we actually used some of my mother's pesto instead of sause and used this amazing spice mix from Costco (Sweet ginger garlic) on the chicken. Amazing)
This was my Mother's Day breakfast surprise
And here is Brent's Favorite:
And my favorite, sorry I don't have a picture:
- one head green cabbage, sliced into strips
- one onion, chopped
- 1 lb of hamburger (browned)
- 2 cans diced/stewed tomatoes
- 1 can tomato sauce
- About 1 can of water
- 1 can chickpeas, drained
- italian spices to taste (pepper, garlic, oregano, sage)
Here are the really complicated directions:
Place all ingredients in your slow cooker on low
Mostly I loved that one because it was so easy and yummy. With healthy food, you don't usually get both EASY and YUMMY. Just saying. It's usually time consuming and yummy.
On another note, I just got back from a girls night with my Mom and a friend. Gail Carson Levine spoke at our library. Her books Ella Enchanted and Fairest were my FAVORITE books ever. Turns our she's under 5 feet. I don't know why I am so stuck on that fact, but it just was really funny to me.
Hearing her speak and looking back on the books that shaped my childhood, I am just so grateful for amazing authors. Books taught me so much and opened a whole new world for me. To this day I think 'Books' is in my top three of things I will passionately talk about for hours. Especially in my Major of Elementary Education, I have learned so much about the importance of reading for kids. To me, reading for kids is like healthy food for kids. It's a must have/do.
Anyways, life is good here! Brent and I both work all day so not much else happens. More updates on the garden soon!
