Thankful for… Days 18,19

Is it Wednesday already?

Day 18- so thankful that Tatum is such a good, calm baby!! She’s really spoiling us in parenthood with how easy she is!!

Day 19- thankful for the crockpot potato soup recipe I found on Facebook. Made that today and it was absolutely delicious and a great dinner choice for a winter day ❤

Easy Crock Pot Potato Soup

1 30oz. bag of frozen diced hash browns
1 32 oz box of chicken broth
1 can of cream of chicken soup (10 oz)
1 pkg. cream cheese (8 oz, not fat free)
3 oz bacon bits
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Put the potatoes in the crockpot. Add in the chicken broth, cream of chicken soup and half of the bacon bits. Add a pinch of salt and pepper.
Cook on low for 8 hours or until potatoes are tender.
An hour before serving, cut the cream cheese into small cubes. Place the cubes in the crock pot. Mix a few times throughout the hour before serving.
Once the cream cheese is completely mixed in, it's ready to serve.
Top with cheddar cheese and some additional bacon bits.

Thankful for… Day 9

Another frivolous thing to be thankful for, but in all honestly it’s a huge help in my life right now. I’m super thankful for my crockpot. Seriously, with a 5 week old and a husband with a broken foot, it’s absolutely MAJOR for me to be able to throw some food in that thing and VIOLA! 6-7 hours later dinner is ready to eat with a minimum of fuss.

Today I did my Jamaican Jerk Chicken with the spices we brought back from Jamaica earlier this year. I usually pair it with rice and black beans mixed together and it’s oh-so-yummy. The other good thing about crockpots is, LEFTOVERS. I may actually have lunch tomorrow. 😉
