My 3 Monsters: Odds and Ends

Odds and Ends

First, want a new recipe? I made this tonight. It's from Simplify, my new favorite recipe site. Let me know what you think. We ate it just as the recipe says, but it would also make DELICIOUS burritos.
Easy Southwest Chicken
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 jar salsa
  • 5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Mix soup and salsa together. Pour over chicken breasts in greased slow cooker. Cook on low heat 6-8 hours. Shred chicken and stir in with sauce. Serve over hot rice. Sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese, add a dollop of sour cream and some chopped green onions. So easy and so good! (We also had delicious 3 Cheese Manicotti last night from the same web site. YUM!)

Second, I had an experience at work this week that was kind of humbling. And funny, in a way. I changed this little girl's diaper (she's probably about 2 years old) and when I was finished she said thank you. Thank You! Actually, it was more like "sanks soo", but I got the point. At first I laughed. I mean, she's so little. And how many diapers have I changed in my adult life? No one has ever thanked me before, least of all the helpless child whose diaper I had just changed. But then I thought about how profoundly grateful I would be, tables turned, which I had never before considered and I saw my role in a whole new light. How many of the mundane, thankless tasks of motherhood are my children grateful for, but they just don't even know to say anything because what I do is all they know? They don't know how much worse life could be if I stopped doing those things. And I'm glad they don't because that means that I'm doing my job. Kinda wish I had this "a-ha" moment ten years ago. Oh well. That's what my kids get for not saying thanks once in a while. Ha ha.

Third, did you see the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics last night?! Uh-mazing! Completely. I have no words.

That's what's on my brain tonight. Thought I'd share.

  1. Your a-ha moment benefits me, though. THANKS! Can't wait to try the recipes.


Thanks for leaving a comment. I try to respond to every one, even if it takes me a little while!
