Slow Cooker Chicken in Sauce

As promised, here is the recipe for Slow cooker chicken, given to me by a dear friend that I haven't seen in years and miss a lot!

30--------Baby carrots
4---------Medium potatoes, cubed
1---------10oz can of whole mushrooms
1/2c-----Chopped onion
6--------Boneless Chicken breast halves

1--------10oz can cream of mushroom soup
1tsp-----Chicken or beef bouillon powder
1/4c-----White (or alcohol free) wine
1-------- Envelope of onion soup mix (I use this stuff in everything! Almost!)
1/4tsp-- Salt
1/8tsp-- Pepper

Arrange vegetables in layers in slow cooker. Lay chicken pieces over top.

Stir remaining ingredients together, mixing well. Spoon over chicken. Cover and cook on low for 10-12hrs or on high for 5-6hrs.

I've never tried this recipe yet but plan to this week.

It became summer (officially) on saturday (or sunday, depending on the calendar!) and wow was it nice! It has been so cool and cloudy here but the weekend was so beautiful. I am someone who really responds to the weather. If it is dark and cloudy, I am lethargic and a bit on the grumpy side. If it is sunny, all of a sudden I feel like cleaning, being active and am in such a good mood! Needless to say, winters feel VERY long for me! How about you? Do you find that your moods reflect the weather too? Any tricks that work for you in getting through the long winters? (so very long here in Atlantic Canada!)

Mmmmm...that sounds yummy. You sure have become quite the cook. Not sure how you manage it with all you have going on. You wow me!
As for how the weather impacts me...hmmm...yeah, I'd have to say that sunny weather does motivate me to get things done (probably because the sunshine shows off how dusty my home is). I used to be a lot more affected by the weather, but I haven't noticed it so much this year. Maybe because I've been existing in a blur. I can't remember when the blur goes away. I can't really call myself a "new mom" again when my baby is already 6 MONTHS OLD!...but that's how I feel...still a little overwhelmed.

Not sure that overwhelmed feeling ever goes away! I still feel overwhelmed, you just learn how to deal with it and cope and make things work for you. It is a learning process, one that I feel like I am still in the beginning of and one that never ends!! You are still a new mom! In the whole scheme of things, 6months is still pretty new when you consider how old they get! heehee
