Get a PEN!

Here's a potato soup recipe you are for sure going to want to write down!

It's okay...I'll give you time to go get a recipe card, index card, post it...whatever!  

Or hey-- just right click, save, and print this out so you have it! 

Isn't picnik just great?!?!  I made the recipe card just doodling around one day, then saved it.  I came back to it and added the text in just now!   (((and I just realized I forgot to fill in what the recipe IS!!)))  

We had this one Sunday after church.  It was super quick- even with the frozen potatoes!  Also- I have to give myself a pat on the back...I have done a GREAT job the past week or so of meal planning!  I have ALMOST  posted our meal plan up each week...but I am doomed for failure if I do that!  

Okay...maybe that was a little dramatic... 

So how about I back-track and tell you what we've already had?!?!  This girl is great about posting her meals each week

{{{{---oh-- that I aspire to be...}}}}

Okay- so I won't do a daily run through- just some highlights. 

Last night we had chili- YUM.  It's "Wendy's Top Secret Recipe" that I'm pretty sure was in the newspaper and my MIL passed it on to me.  I personally haven't ever had Wendy's chili- so I don't know if it really tastes like it- but it is GUUU--UUD.  We were celebrating my FIL's bday- so we did that and baked potatoes and we splurged on cupcakes!  Andrea's are just too good to try to make my own!  I told Jared once that I'll try many things- but fancy baking and cake decorating probably won't ever be one of them!  

We had BBQ last week-- crockpot, seasoned rub, Corky's bbq sauce- divine.  My mom found it for me on Kitchen Daily but I can't seem to find the exact recipe to link it...leave me a comment if you want me to get it to you!  It was delish.

And of course we've had a chicken dish-- but this one I can't decide if I like or not.  It's the 2nd time I've made it and I don't think it has enough flavor for me.  But it's one of my cousin's favorites- and she has great taste buds (lol- yes at myself)  

4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (uncooked) 
-sliced mushrooms (8 oz square box or bag of fresh sliced; or, big jar of mushrooms....but i think the fresh r the best)
-swiss cheese
-1 can of cream of chicken soup
-1/2 cup of white wine (I may have added a tad bit more to make it a little more moist)
-pepperidge farm herb stuffing mix
-salt and pepper
*don't like mushrooms, so we omitted that*
*oh- and I made my own cream of chicken

And Owen is eating more and more...I kinda gave the babyfood-making a little hiatus.  He is getting lots more tub food than I thought I would do- but something had to give right now!  But he is eating so much of what we're eating and it's so easy to throw whatever into the mini food chopper and give that to him!  Plus he's eating lots of soft food- so that saves on lots of prep, too!  One of his favorites is chicken pot pie!  It's this girl's MIL's recipe I got from the church cookbook.  It is SOOOO stinking good and it makes up two pies, so I can either freeze it or take it to a friend!  (I took it to a neighbor last week- plus the best brownies you will ever put in your mouth!  I'll share that recipe later, too!)

Okay--- so chicken pot pie and brownies recipe- coming up with the next blog post!  Maybe I'll even get fancy and put them on those fancy recipe cards too!!  

So---what do YOU have cooking?!
