A Plea for Help

I think 99.9% of you that read this are moms (the .01% is you, Bart :)), so everyone is qualified to help me. As ridiculous as this sounds, making meals just became a priority to me since I quit working. I know that's shameful but that's how it is. And since we went to Target every other day the first few months, I could just figure out something to make and get the ingredients on an as-needed basis. That's not working anymore. I would like to only go to the store every other week except for milk and bread. I am ok with sitting down and planning meals and a grocery list but the problem is the recipes I've picked sometimes end up being duds. I cannot TELL you how much that frustrates me. It's so time consuming to find recipes, make a long list, soothe/entertain the troops while shopping, then unload and put away all of it with two little ones wanting your attention....not to mention cooking it!
So I need more recipes, to make a long story short. PLEASE either comment on this post, on my facebook page, or email me your fave easy recipe. And easy is really a requirement. I gave my friend this recipe and she commented that it was easy. That's hilarious because it's the most complicated thing I make! It's good though. And if something goes in the crockpot, that's even better. Here's my current fave.
Rosemary Chicken
I add 2 cans of chicken broth and double (or triple!) the amount of dressing and spices.

And I'm giving you a bonus....just because I'm nice.
Put a chuck roast in the crock pot. Pour two jars of banana peppers over it. Turn on low for 8 hours.

If you use one of these recipes without leaving me one, your washing machine will stop working. It's like a breaking a chain letter......don't chance it. Leave me a recipe. Thank you :)

I  love this verse. Isn't that good news?!?!
 See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! 1 John 3:1


  1. Ahhhhhh, Mimi's roast and peppers, DIVINE!!!!! :-) I encourage everyone who reads this to make it, your family will love ya for it!

  2. This is my favorite crock pot recipe. It does require quite a bit of prep work, but it is really yummy. Miranda even loves it.

  3. Oh wow, I have quite a lot of easy and yummy recipes. I'll email you a couple. But I have two recipe books I'll bring to church next week. There are both Southern Living and one is crockpot recipes and the other is easy weeknight favorites. :) :)
    I do want them back, but you can take a few weeks and look through them and see if there is anything you like. I'll try and bookmark the ones I've made.
