Sometimes pure laziness breeds the most wonderful surprises.
Take for example, Saturday morning. I knew I wasn’t up for much more than some routine tidying up around the house (and a secret visit that I will tell you more about soon, I promise. No mom, I’m not pregnant.)
So with my “let’s do as minimal work today as possible” attitude, I grabbed my bff and sister wife, the crockpot, and threw a bunch of…well random stuff in it. Again, I’m trying to use what I already have. Some staples:
- Frozen chicken breasts
- Frozen mixed veggies
- Can of cheddar cheese soup
- Chicken broth
- Whole grain wild rice
- Spices to BAM! Kick it up a notch
- The greatest invention ever on earth: the slow cooker
Now play nice in there, kids.
Put everything in the crockpot. Cook for a while.
Lay around and watch a Pretty Little Liars marathon.
Read a book…ok a magazine.
Paint your nails.
Repaint your nails after you screw them up grabbing the remote to turn on the next episode of Pretty Little Liars.
Embrace the laziness.
So as you can see, it’s not the most gorgeous looking bowl of food, but let me tell you something: it’s delicious. And requires pretty much no work. And that, my loves, is a beautiful thing.
And what’s even better is that due to a (much-needed) bye week for my Eagles, Sunday turned out to be pretty relaxed as well (MUST BEAT COWBOYS NEXT WEEK). I even had my first Costco experience, which I’ll tell you more about tomorrow. Thankfully I narrowly escaped without draining my entire bank account and with a few new tasty treats to try out.
And can I just quickly discuss with those of you who also watch PLL- What was up with that random Halloween episode?! Now I have to wait until January to see what happened? I’ll be lucky if I still remember their names by then! Good Lord.
Ok rant over. It’s a good thing I don’t take my TV shows too seriously. Ahem.
Happy Tuesday- hope it’s kind to you!
