I feel uninspired in the kitchen.
I'm all over the place in the rest of the house. For some reason, nesting is already beginning. I'm trying to figure out where to put this baby when he/she makes their debut. So this has lead to every single closet and piece of furniture (we have an old house without closets) untouched and organized. The days of closing the doors and forgetting the chaos inside exists are over.
But, the kitchen........oh, the kitchen. Its the most untouched room of my life right now. And if you know me or have been reading this blog, you know this girl loves to cook and loves food.......a little too much at times.
I don't want Jason to have to lose his baby weight after this pregnancy is over also by being an innocent bystander of my drive-thru addiction. After the dinner we had tonight, things aren't looking so hot. Thanks Dairy Queen!
- Hunger Buster with cheese and fries
- Large Coke (I'm a big fat caffeine sinner when I pregnant. But, remember, I'm not drinking coffee)
- Deluxe Nachos (Jason and I split these for an appetizer. Doesn't everyone get an appetizer when eating fast food????)
- Banana Split Blizzard (YOU MUST TRY THIS. THESE WILL BE ADDED TO "THE LIST OF FAVS")
So, here is where you come in. I successfully cooked supper a few nights ago in a crock pot. It re-ignited my love for them. I put supper in at 2pm when I was feeling great and girls were asleep. When I started feeling icky when 5pm rolled around, supper was done. Amazing. I love that little round pot with the knobby.
I'm a fan of crock pots. The only problem I have with them is that most of the crock pot recipes are really really bad for you. I might as well eat from a drive-thru. Believe me, I can cook me some chicken spaghetti in the crock pot with the best of them. But, Velveeta isn't exactly great for you. Sorry if I just made some of you cry out there!
I'm on a mission to find healthy slow cooker meals. I'd love to know if any of you have any recipes that you love and want to share with me! Jason (aka.....The Food Nazi) will appreciate it. Don't be scared. I know we each have different things we've omitted from our particular diets. No worries there. Submit away.
Maybe we can have the "World's First Healthy Slow Cooker Recipes Cookbook" and get rich off it together. That's a really long title. We'll have to shorten it, now won't we?
