Joyful Minutes: Gratitude Journal April 10Friday, April 10, 2015
Happy Friday! This week has been pretty great! Last week was a bit rough to get through, but this week there's been a lot of goodness around me, and I'm quite thankful for that. Let's get to it, shall we?
1. I found my dream house.This little cottage in Maine. Someday I will live there, drinking lemonade and watching the water. Feeling the breeze blow on my face, and hearing the birds in the forest behind the house. My kitties will become mini-mountain lions, and we will get a huge dog that loves the water. In the winter, we'll roast marshmallows on the fireplace, and snuggle up with blankets. This is the house of my dreams. Everything I've ever wanted looks like this. Just add a sunny flat plot on the south side of the house for my garden and I'm sold.
2. Finding easy crockpot meals like this one: Crockpot Salsa ChickenWe made this Tuesday and loved it so much we ate the leftovers Wednesday.
+ 1 jar of any flavor of salsa
+ Boneless chicken - cuts of your choice (I used tenderloins)
+ 1 crockpot
Dump both ingredients in crock pot. Cook for 4-6 hours. When chicken is cooked, shred chicken with forks (it basically falls apart anyway). Stir it all up again to mix shredded chicken and salsa. Put it in hard taco shells. Add your taco toppings of choice. Devour.
(Would also work with a side of rice and beans, or as a burrito, or on a taco salad, or in a quesadilla, etc. However you want!)
