Well, my month off is over, I am back to being just a domestic goddess!
Even though I have been cooking during the last month, it was mainly some family favorites and a lot of meats and veggies. My goal was to lose 5 lbs while I worked and I lost 7! I am looking forward to trying some new things next week along with a yummy pork roast & some jalapeno hot dogs.
The first is Baked Pesto Chicken that I found on Pinterest, it looks easy and low calorie! Next is Slow Cooker Jambalaya that I also found on Pinterest, shocker I know.... Check your pantry, you may not need to buy all the spices the recipe calls for and if you don't like smoked sausage just double the chicken. I also buy the already chopped onion and green peppers to cut down on the time. Lastly I am trying the Nutty Oat Pancakes from The Southern Lady Cooks blog. I love pancakes (any kind really) but especially pancakes with "stuff" in them! Check out her site, she has some great recipes!
Enjoy your family this week and spend some time around the table making some CHRISTmas memories!!
