Chicken Yum Yum

Wow…what a day! It was Monday so that is always horrible but to top it off it was crazy crazy busy at work. Yes, usually I’m bored to death…well actually not as much anymore but at first when I started my job at the car dealership I was always bored. Good thing I got engaged soon after I started and could plan my wedding on my down time! Well I was there an hour late and completely exhausted when I got home. In fact I was signing out the last car and I’m pretty sure the people thought I was losing my marbles as I tripped over my tongue and my eyes were slowly shutting. I was sooo thankful I made something in the Crock-Pot at dinner. I absolutely love the Crock-Pot. It is a woman’s best friend. This recipe is super easy and super delicious. My husband even agreed it was great. He said he could just eat the stuffing and that would be fine with him. It’s already late tonight and I have to be at a meeting on social marketing for your business early tomorrow morning so it looks to be another long day. Maybe I’ll put the hubby in charge of supper tomorrow night, which equals pizza!! Maybe Tuna Helper if he gets REAL daring! Oh well I’m usually so happy not to make supper when I get off work I could care less what it was he fed me! I’ll shut up now and let you read the recipe!

Wow what a long title for a recipe! I tackled these cookies today. I made them once before about a year ago. In my mind they are a totally fall cookie. My dad LOVES anything to do with cranberries so when I found this recipe in a magazine I tried them out for him. We found out that the rest of us thought they were pretty good also. They are a bit different but I like them! This recipe doesn’t make a lot of cookies so if you are looking for a large batch make sure you double it. After this post I’m back to enjoying my Sunday and watching the Vikes. Hopefully they can actually pull something together this time! Yay they just scored there is hope!!!!

Tonight I had this wonderful idea of making something more complicated and time consuming for supper because I had the day off from work and could do this. Well, I was over ambitious and started painting the hallway in our house. I have been telling my friend, Desiree, that I am going to do this for oh over a month and I’m happy to say its finally DONE! In between coats I successfully did about five loads of laundry. I leave for training in the cities on Monday and needed to make sure I had clothes! After painting the ceiling, walls and trim I looked at the clock and it was already 6:00! So much for my great idea! After a quick inventory of what was actually in the cupboards and freezer I decided that I would make Spaghetti & Meatballs. This recipe is super easy and quick! You don’t even have to cook the meatballs separate like most recipes. Jason LOVED the meatballs. He informed me he could just eat those and that would be just fine! Here’s the recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Best Ever Spaghetti & Meatballs
Printer Friendly Recipe


1 lb Ground Beef
1/2 c. Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs
1 Egg
1 jar ( 1 lb 10 oz) Pasta Sauce
8 oz Spaghetti


1. Combine ground beef, bread crumbs & egg. Shape into 12 meatballs.

2. Bring pasta sauce to a boil. Gently stir in uncooked meatballs (Be careful they tend to crumble!). Reduce heat to low & simmer covered, stirring occasionally 20 min or until meatballs are done.

3. In the meantime bring water to a boil and cook spaghetti according to directions.

4. Serve over hot spaghetti. Garnish with Parmesan cheese.

I served the spaghetti & meatballs with garlic biscuits. I used Bisquick Complete Cheese-Garlic biscuit mix. I like to spice these up a little by adding Garlic Garlic from Tastefully Simple and some shredded cheese. By the way you need this in your house it comes in so handy!!! My friend Michelle is a consultant and I just got it a few months ago and LOVE it. http://www.tastefullysimple.com/
