Two for One Dinner and Other Stuff

Yesterday morning I tried an experimental recipe for crockpot chicken.  I used 3 lbs. of skinless, boneless chicken breasts in the crockpot then prepared two packages of Southeastern Mills Chicken Gravy with 4 cups of boiling water and 1 cup cold water to mix the two packages of gravy mix before adding it to the boiling water.  I poured the hot gravy over the chicken and added 2 cups of chopped carrots then cooked on low for 10 hours.

I served one chicken breast with mashed potatoes and green beans for dinner and it was delicious.

After dinner I shredded the remaining chicken with a fork then added a can of peas and 1/4 cup diced onion.  I poured the now chicken pot pie mixture into a 13×9 pan and spread out 1 can of Grands Buttermilk Biscuits over the top then put it all in the refrigerator.

Today I replaced my pan cover with aluminum foil and cooked the chicken pot pie in the oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.  I took off the foil and cooked it another 15 minutes and it was again … delicious.  Rick will eat two lunches of chicken pot pie this week because he liked it so much and asked for it.

I finished my crocheted house slippers … finally!  I found this slipper pattern on Pinterest and I sort of modified it here and there, but kept to the basic instructions.  I used 3 strands of Red Heart Super Saver and an H hook.

I got to have lunch with my daughter.  She had her third miscarriage last month and we are all sad and confused about that.  She’s been through every test they can think of to find out why she has been pregnant three times in the past five years and miscarried in the first trimester every time.  The physicians all say that there is no reason for her to miscarry next time, but she has.  Has anyone heard of anyone else having a story like that?
