Happy everyone! I think that last week’s Ryan taking his shirt off gif was just what everyone needs on a morning to get us through that last day of work so without further ado…
I’m going to start sounding like a broken record if I haven’t already… house progress, duh! It’s coming along so quickly still I just can’t believe it. I can’t tell you how surreal it is to have the plans that my husband hand drew 3 years ago finally come to life.
I've shared this post before for homemade cream of chicken and this is one of the recipes I use it in on the reg. This is the easiest ever chicken pot pie recipe I've ever come across and I have to share. Ps. it’s great for a cool fall day or a really cold winter day. Warms ya right up!
1 refrigerated pie crust
1 can mixed veggies
2 batches of homemade cream of chicken (or canned if you like all those ingredients you can’t pronounce)
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cooked & shredded—Ps. If you have a standing mixer with a paddle attachment, throw your chicken breasts in while still hot and let her rip, it’ll shred the chicken like a charm.
For the Pie:
Follow the directions of your pie crust for cooking temperature & preparation. Mix the double batch of cream of chicken, chicken breast, and mixed veggies in a bowl. Add the mixture to the pie crust & bake according to the directions of your pie crust. And BOOM, you’re done. So easy! So delish! And if you’re really feeling like Betty Crocker, you can make your own pie crust if you’ve got that kind of time!
You'll jump right off the healthy bandwagon with these babies.
of course the pin leads nowhere, doesn't this just look perfect?
Favorite Thing I’m looking forward to:
Our FET is less than 2 weeks away now & I’m really excited & ready for this to finally work! I haven’t been as stringent with my diet as last time as I’m still drinking caffeine, but other than that I’ve been watching what I eat, exercising regularly, and doing acupuncture. I’ve been trying not to think too much about that “what if” as in “what if it doesn’t work again” it’s really hard not to though. All I’m going to say is that if it doesn’t then I imagine maybe a break from all the hormones and doctors and a few months of the good ole’ trying naturally at least maybe until next year. Let’s face it, next year IS NOT that far away now! But, I’m feeling really good about this cycle, maybe even better than our first cycle. Now that I know the quality of our frosties (all A+) and the possibility of assisted hatching, I’m hopeful that this will work this time. Not having to take as much medication & the relief of some of the initial stress from the house has really helped a lot over the last few weeks, hopefully these are all good signs!
Ok, this was too long of a post…
