if  there is one thing this girl likes it's a crockpot meal.

1. i know how to open a can.
2. it's nearly impossible to mess up.
3. while my cooking skillz have improved...i won't be writing my cookbook any time soon.

over in these here parts it dropped from upper 90's to the mid 80's and that was the perfect inspiration to get the crockpot out.

i know that's still summer-feelin' weather...but i can't wait for fall to get here. also, i thought my farmer deserved a nice warm meal so i decided on crockpot chicken and dumplings.

please note that while this is yum, it is not healthy.

please also note it is farmer approved. and me approved. it's good stuff.

i found the recipe via pinterest.

oh pinterest...i love thee.

find the recipe here: CHICKEN & DUMPLINGS

a note to my farmer...

just know that as i'm preparing your meal once (maybe twice) a week...i'm usually fighting this little bear.

as of late she's been obsessed with the fridge. 

on the first day she just played with the condiments in the door and it has since progressed to actively crawling inside of it to grab food items off the shelves. 

seriously girlfriend. you're 10 months old. can't you just crawl around?

how is it possible that she makes most simple activities so much more difficult but so much more fun. she's our little treasure.

the next time i make this i would imagine adding in some veggies will be quite the tasty delight.

maybe some green peppers? or spinach? or both? zucchini would probably be good as well. i'll play around with it.
