Monday Recovery

Quite a weekend - my hubby caught one of those wonderful summer colds and was quite miserable last week. His schedule could be summed up as follows: go to work, come home, eat dinner, play with the kids, go to sleep. Anyway, Friday morning my throat was a bit scratchy and by Saturday I was miserable. Yesterday was the worst - ever tried to deal with a room full of 2 and 3 year olds when you have no voice?! I crashed and took a long nap in the afternoon, but then couldn't fall asleep last night. Sigh. I *do* feel better today, though, and already have run both the dishwasher and the washing machine - dishes and laundry sure can pile up fast!!

Obviously we didn't do a whole lot for Father's Day (I'm now kind of glad that we celebrated a week early), but I did make up a new crock pot recipe that my hubby really liked, so will be added to the regular rotation.

Honey Dijon Chicken

4 oz neufchatel (light cream cheese)
1/4 c dijon mustard
2 Tb honey
1 Tb parsley
3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Cut chicken breasts in half and lay on bottom of crock pot. Blend neufchatel, mustard and honey (don't worry if there are still lumps), then pour over chicken. Sprinkle with parsley. Cook on high for 4-5 hours.

(We have a divided crock pot, and I made the chicken on the large side and a barley pilaf in the smaller compartment: 1 c barley, 2 1/2 c chicken broth, 1/2 tsp rosemary, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp gr black pepper. It turned out really well, and I just love having lunch ready when we walk in the door after church!)

In other news, please pray for my husband's job situation. There have been some changes in management that are making things difficult, and now it appears that there are even bigger changes looming on the horizon. Still not sure how it will affect him, but please pray that he can hang in there and still do a good job - and that I can be supportive (even if that means stepping out of my comfort zone).

Isn't it so nice to have good servants (washer and dishwasher)?

Glad you're feeling better...

Praying about your hubby's job situation...

There is such a thing as a divided crockpot!? I am going to have to check into that...hmmm.
