Sherry Chicken {Crockpot}

Love, love, love my crockpot! It is a busy Moms lifesaver. I work late 2 days a week and the crockpot allows me the ability to make a great dinner in typically under 15mins first thing in the morning. Hubs comes home to a wonderful smelling house (always earns me some brownie points!) This morning I had frozen boneless/skinless chicken breast that I tossed in the crockpot with onion and carrots. It smells yummy!!

Boneless/skinless chicken breast

1/2 lg onion, thinly sliced

2 carrots, sliced

1 T  21 Seasoning Salute (Trader Joe’s spice mix)

1 cup water

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1/4 to 1/2 cup sherry

4 oz cream cheese

Place everything EXCEPT cream cheese in slow cooker, set on low and cook all day. About a hour prior to eating stir in cream cheese. Serve over egg noodles or rice.

Trader Joe’s Shopping List

I have started an affair, an affair with a grocery store! I long to go there and walk through the wonderful store. It is so bright and cheery and clean they have a beautiful assortment of fresh flowers and wine. Two of my favorite things! I am so addicted that I am finding reasons to drive into Charlotte (about 45mins). Tonight I told Hubs that since j-bird has tomorrow and Tuesday off (Mommy does too!)  Maybe we should drive to Charlotte and pick up the Eric Clapton tickets he won! It’s on my birthday!! And, Hubs… while we are there we should pop by TJ’s and get some goodies to take on our mountain getaway!! He agreed! SUCKER! Just kidding!! He too has fallen in lust with their yogurt  and some salsa! Here are a few things I can’t come home without!!!!!

Fresh Pizza Dough
TJ’s yogurt (blueberry & cream, banana & cream cups)
marinara sauce
fresh sourdough bread
all beef/no nitrate hotdogs (great)
Goddess dressing
Island Soyaki sauce
Brownie Truffle Mix
Pom Limeade
Frozen Orange Chix (quick dinner much less exp than take-out)
Bambino Pizza Formaggio
Fresh Cheeses are the bomb!

I’m going again on Tues. I will continue to add to the list!! Happy Shopping!
