CROCK POT CHICKEN AND SOAKED FEET


The days have been hot and muggy, so crock pot dinners keep the house cool.  Boneless chicken breasts, carrots, potatoes and a can of cream of chicken soup.   Was that easy?



Added a salad and slice of sour dough toast and it felt like Sunday dinner on Tuesday.   



The last of the apricot pulp made three loaves of bread.



I went a little "crazy" with the drizzle...one to eat, two to freeze.  
Those apricots went a long way.



Tonight while watching the Dodgers play on TV, soaked my feet and gave myself a nice pedicure.  I have "happy" feet.

Put my little flags on the balcony this morning.  Happy July!  Hope you have a good "rest of the week".....

    1. Dinner was good, and my pretty toes are done with Revlon "Tuscan Sun" I's a rather rosy mauve.

      I used my banana bread recipe and substituted the fresh apricot pulp.

    1. Linda, would love to be having a piece with you on the balcony, and a cup of coffee....

      I love banana bread, but this is so good. Almost reminds me of Pumpkin bread.

  4. Okay. I just had to laugh! At first glance, when I saw your title accompanying the first photo, I suddenly thought, "Did Wanda soak her feet in the crockpot?" Ha!
    Everything looks so good... your toe-sies too!

  6. Hi Wanda, I've been enjoying the crockpot too on these hot days. Your dinner looks so tasty. Don't you love baking and freezing treats for later? I know that apricot bread is delicious with a cup of coffee. Despite the warm temps, I still like my coffee! Wishing you a wonderful rest of the week.
