Wednesday, I did it!

     I finally was able to get the rest of the front flower bed cleaned out.  It was quite the job, but it is clean.  Now I have to replant and lay bark.  I am so glad it is cold and nasty today as I would be outside if it weren't.  I just need the sunshine so bad and there is none around here.

     The littles were very messy yesterday but I did get the little girls Easter dress made.  Then I forgot to take a picture of it.  The shop was busy with pickups and drop offs, and I was able to get out in the yard for about 2 hours in the early evening.

     Today I must sew I have 6 prom dresses to get done and a pile of hemming.  I also have to teach a class between 4-5 today.

     Yesterday was such a running blur with the babies and the shop, that it came about 3:00 and I had no idea what I was going to do with the chicken parts I had thawed.  So I looked up a recipe on the inter net for chicken and rice.  This was so easy and delicious and cheap and of course I have no picture of it because we ate it too fast. I used a Cuisinart dutch oven.

     One onion chopped
     4 garlic clovets (my term for part of garlic) chopped

Saute in 1/2 cube butter

     Add two cups rice and stir

Take chicken parts after you have salted peppered and paprikad  (Again my term)and lay on top rice and butter mixture.

   Now add two cans of chicken broth and stick in oven at 350 for 1 hour or until chicken is done.

So easy one pot to clean up.  Next time I will add some broccoli to the rice and onions.

This is definitely a keeper of a recipe.  We have enough left overs for lunch today.

     Well I had better get to work as I need the money.

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

    1. It was so easy, you should try it the boys will love it!

  3. You are one of those women who resemble a tornado, whirling from one task to another! I am reminded that I am SOOO lazy. All those goals you have made is a great incentive to work toward getting them done. I am not good at setting goals. I guess I should start making some and maybe I would finally get something done beside doing jigsaw puzzles and crocheting. It is never too late to change my course, so thank you for setting an example.

    1. If I could crochet like you I would be doing just that.
