Day 18 Crockpot Challenge Simple Roast Chicken

As I sit and talk with a friend I realized how little people actually cook anymore. In fact, at nearly 30 years old she has never, oh yes never made a roast chicken. Now granted she is a busy woman, always running from meeting to meeting and really just never making time to do something good for herself. So I told her I would make her a post :O). Luckily she is a good friend and was excited to find out how she can make herself and her husband a great meal and not have to stand in the kitchen all day getting it ready. Here is what you will need to make yourself and your family a full meal Roast Chicken meal in your crockpot:

1 Whole Chicken
2 Cloves of Garlic 
Baby Carrots(However many you need to serve your family usually 1/2 per person I make)
Small New Potatoes(2-3 per person is what i like)
Pepper
Paprika
1 Tablespoon Butter(Melted)

I love how fast and easy this meal is for any family whether you are a busy business woman like my friend, a mom with little ones under foot all day. Simply place your chicken into the crockpot. Surround it with the garlic,  carrots and potatoes, you can really use any carrots and potatoes but buying them small save chopping time and I know sometimes I would love an extra couple of minutes in life. Take your melted butter and put it over your chicken, then sprinkle the chicken with the pepper and paprika. Don't put to much on but give it a good dusting. Place your lid on set it to low and head off to your busy day. When your family is ready for dinner you meal will be to.Not only will this be a full meal for a couple but it will have leftovers for future meals.

I have never ever cooked in a crockpot. EVER! So glad I hopped over to your blog. I need to try something new this spring. I cook every single night! In fact, I cook breakfast every morning. I take my lunch to work so I have to make that meal. (even if it's only a sandwich, berries and yogurt) and then I cook supper. Yes, every single night!!! See? I need to learn to cook in a crockpot. I hopped over from www.savedbygrace82.blogspot.com and I'm so glad I did!

I love roast chicken in the crockpot! I take aluminum foil, form it into balls and place my chicken on top to cook. Keeps the chicken from sitting in the grease that cooks out. I would be lost without my crockpot.

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

The Children's Place Review and Giveaway

Recently I was lucky enough to be given a chance to review The Children's Place . With summer time in full force here in West Texas getting some new summer time clothing was not only a needed thing but a fun thing to do. We decided to try out The Children's Place online ordering. I had never done this before and with a packed schedule it was very handy! My daughter loved sitting don and being able to pick out an entire outfit for under $25.

Butterfly Shirt $6; Matching Shorts $6;Flip Flops to go with her out fit $3.50. The excitement of picking her outfit herself Priceless. She really had so much fun with this and she loves her new flips flops(because the

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li
