Lazy Sunday

So as I sit here in this 95 degree weather and listen to my husband ask me what we are having for dinner, I can't help but imagine a life with a maid and full-time chef. Lord knows I would be happier and skinnier. To say I am no Betty Crocker is putting it lightly. My take on cooking dinner equals ordering out. I have had two jobs for years and the last thing I want to do after a 12 hour day is cook. So how, I wonder, am I supposed to cook now with a four month old who loves to be held (and when I say loves, I really mean screams if she is not picked up at least once every 15minutes or so). We can talk about spoiling issues later. I do want to attempt to cook more, now that I am staying at home until December and want to eat healthier to try to lose some pregnancy weight. How exactly am I supposed to cook with a baby? There are very few receipes that would allow me to start in 15 minutes and then revisit for another few mintues at a later time. I need few ingredients, low preparation, and health rolled into one! Well, I found one and I am going to try it out - Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken! It is even friendly with this heat wave we are having since I don't need the oven or the stove for very long. Try it out too...and let me know how it turns out or if you came up with any creative variations!

  1. Not sure if my comment went through. Visiting from Bloggy Moms. It's tough cooking great meals while having little ones. I usually do all the prep work during naptime or cook something easy like chicken wings since once you marinade them, there is nothing else to do but stick in oven. I will have some recipe postings soon so come by my blog at and follow. I am now following you.
