Hello my Friends!
I'm sorry I'm late with this post. I meant to do it yesterday for my Friday 5 - so I'm still doing that, however on Saturday instead. ;) I just thought I'd share a bit about my week. I hope yours was great and that you're having a wonderful weekend.
Got the last of the flowers planted - including this big pot on the deck. Of course had to let the fairies move in as this lovely lady chose this pot. I love the solar watering can stake because it glows different colors at night.
Now that it's been feeling more like full on summer - there's been lots of bugs and critters visiting our northwoods yard. The bees have been humming and the dragonflies have been coming to admire my flowers.
The little garden outside Annie's window has been looking lovely and several of the shrubs in there have been starting to bloom. So pretty!
I made a new recipe of maple dijon slow cooker chicken with fresh rosemary. It was so easy and really flavorful! I think next time I would use skin on chicken breasts as I think the sauce would have adhered nicely to it. I doubled the "sauce" as we like it saucy here. But I think sticking to the original would have been good too and thickened up even more. The photo above is when I had just gotten everything into the slow cooker to cook. I forgot and "after" photo. We had it with roasted red potatoes, salad, and apple cinnamon muffins. Delish! The recipe is from a pin I had added to my pinterest slow cooker board you can find here. Here is the recipe:
1. 4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts, use skinned boneless chicken thighs if you wish.
2. ½ cup Dijon Mustard.
3. ¼ cup Maple Syrup.
4. 1 tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar.
5. Salt & Black Pepper to taste.
6. Rosemary, dry powdered or fresh.
To make this in the slow cooker, combine all ingredients and cook on low for 3-4 hours.
She's number 1 on her jersey and in our hearts. ;)
Lots of soccer action! My Annie had 2 games this week, plus a tourney going on all weekend. The bottom photo is of one of her BFF's who came with us to watch Annie, and she must have been good luck as Annie scored a goal in that game to break a tie! ;)
I'm sharing this with Tricky of the blog FAST for Five on Friday.
