Today is Good Friday and all of my kiddos are home for a four day weekend. I am looking forward to our holiday weekend and just being together. We started off our festivities with one of my dearest friends and her adorable son.
Aren't ~L~ and Sweet Pea cute together? We already have an arranged marriage set up, thankyouverymuch. Their family had been so supportive of us for over 11 years. God placed them in our lives and, while we don't get to see them as often as we would like, we are very blessed by their friendship. It is so much fun to watch our kids grow up together!
Today I am going to share a recipe that was sent to me by my friend, Imperfect Mom. You may have noticed some of her funny comments on our blog from time to time. Yes, I realize that some of her comments are funnier than my actual posts. Can I just say that we have some of the best readers? I love reading your comments. You all are so funny!
I have the privilege of knowing Imperfect Mom in real life. She thoughtfully sent me this recipe and assured me that her son loves this stuff. Well, I won't lie and say my boys loved it, but it was deemed "edible". I'll take that! Nurse Boy and I really enjoyed it. I love how simple it is to make! That always makes me like a recipe even more. I am lazy like that. So, read on my fellow lazy cooks. If you aren't a lazy cook, than you are reading the wrong blog. Martha Stewart does not live here.Apricot Glazed Chicken
(Think Sweet-n-Sour Chicken)
1 cup apricot preserves (I think peach preserves would work as well.)
2/3 cup Russian dressing (It works best with Russian, but French or Catalina will work in a pinch.)
1 envelope onion soup mix
3-5 FROZEN boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Put FROZEN chicken in a crock pot. Mix apricot preserves, dressing and soup mix. Pour over chicken. Cook on low 5-7 hours. Serve over rice.
It is that simple!
Enjoy your Easter weekend! I love Easter. It is one of my favorite holidays. One where we are reminded that we have a Savior. One who died on the cross and rose from the dead! It is a beautiful story of love. More love than we can even imagine. Love for me. Love for you. It moves me and brings me to my knees. I pray that you and your family will be moved by the very true story of our Risen Savior this Easter.
HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD!!!
