"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences." — Gordon B. Hinckley

I love my crock pot!!

Nothing makes cooking easier then a crock pot!!

My wonderful husband got me a new one for Christmas.

It has a timer, a probe to check the temperature and

the best part is it will turn itself to warm once your meal has

reached the desired temperature!! I have always

loved my crock pot and now that I have started working

part-time I am falling deeper in love with my

crock pot!!

Apricot Chicken
(aka: Hawaiian Chicken)
1 Cup Apricot Jam
8 oz. Russian Dressing (Catalina will work if you can’t find Russian)
1 Pkg. Lipton onion soup mix
8 Chicken Breast (5-6 if you are using Sam’s clubs large defrosted-frozen breasts)
1 Can pineapple rings, drained (or fresh pineapple cut into rings if it is on sell)
Uncle Ben's Wild and long grain rice
Mix Jam, dressing, and soup mix together. Place chicken in crock pot, pour mixture over top. Place pineapple rings on top. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. (This was way to long, the chicken got over done) 1 hour prior to serving, shred chicken with fork and continue to cook in crock pot so that the chicken absorbs additional juices. Serve over a prepared batch of wild and long grain rice. Serve with a fruit salad or a fresh green salad.
