Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!!
Crock Pot Chicken Marsala. I only made three changes to the recipe. First I browned the chicken in a bit of olive oil as I don't like the looks of some meats done in a crock pot. They seem a little naked to me. I used 1/2 the amount of Marsala wine and doubled the chicken broth as we don't care much for the wine taste in food. The last change was I didn't add the heavy cream at the end for two reasons. Sometimes the cream feels a bit too heavy, we didn't have any in the house and I was determined not to spend any money today!!
Finally on day 3 of the fiscal fast I pulled off a no spend day! It's about time! Ha
Kara and I did venture out to the dive up window of the bank for my weekly household spending money. I still have not received the pin number for my new debit card so the window it was. The teller let me know if I came inside they could take care of the pin number for me but as cold as it was and as feisty as Kara was I figure I will hit the bank to get the debit card up and running next week when I don't have one of the grands in tow.
Kara was wide open today, keeping up with her was all I managed to do. I sooo hope tomorrow it will warm up a little as that gal needs to have a good run to burn off some energy. Holy cow, she can be a handful when she has been locked inside for many days.
Our plan for tomorrow is to do some baking, give bean soup a try in the pressure cooker, and run around the yard or maybe a trip to the park. That girl needs to get out in the fresh air. I had planned on working in the scrap/sewing room tonight as it is once again in a huge mess. Instead here I sit on the sofa with AJ the beagle a cup of tea and the remote control ready to switch around between the two bowl games that will be on. Hey it's Friday night, kicking up my heel's has a different definition after chasing Kara around all day. My heels are propped up on a pillow for a badly needed rest!
