Swim lessons, karate, skating lessons, dance lessons, and soup kitchen!

Weekends are busy now with all of the stuff the kids have going on!!  Insane! But today I knocked off a bunch of recipes one by one. 

On the list today:

Balsamic crock pot chicken
Chicken noodle soup
Chicken leek and mushroom pot pie
Banana chocolate chip muffins
Pizza pinwheels

And yesterday made pulled beef in the crockpot for tacos!  That turned out super yum and have another half batch that went in the freezer. I used this recipe here:

I followed the recipe to a tee and they were perfect! 

Today I started out with balsamic chicken in the crockpot. Such an easy recipe which you can find here:

I used five chicken breasts. The only modification was I added a little bit more balsamic. Like three tablespoons more than was called for. And it only takes 3.5 hrs on high!

Next up was chicken noodle soup. So easy!!  I make up the recipe myself. So here goes:

Three carrots peeled and diced small
Three celery stalks sliced
A bunch of green onion sliced
One potatoe diced small
One white onion diced
4 cups of chicken stock
6 cups of water
Tablespoon of both parsley and oregano
Dash of salt and pepper

Place all the vegetables and spices in a pot over medium high with your stock and water. Keep it in there for about forty five minutes and then throw some shredded chicken in!  Leave it for another ten and it's done!  I made some small pasta shells that will go in the soup as well BUT  a good friend today told me the trick. Don't put the pasta or whatever starch you're using in until you serve the soup!  So I just placed my cooked pasta in a large ziplock bag in the fridge and added a drop of olive oil to keep it from not sticking together :). That's tomorrow nights dinner!

Chicken leek and mushroom pot pie is easy and tastes amazing. I found this recipe years ago while sitting on the blasted go train commuting to work, in the metro daily paper.   So I can't find the link to this online, but have posted a pic of the recipe from the paper for you here :). There's actually two recipes in this clip so just use the correct one :p

And of course, my usual weekend recipes of banana chocolate chip muffins and pizza pinwheels to restock the freezer. 

And that's a wrap! I'll be browsing Pinterest this week for some new goodies to cook up next weekend....oh wait it's also thanksgiving. Oh boy it's going to be a busy weekend!
