Rotel Crock Pot Chicken - Stephanie's Version

My husband is a very picky eater.  He grew up in a family where if you said you didn't like something you had to eat the entire bowl of it, it was not an environment that was conducive to experimenting with different foods or trying new things.  I think that it was has made him so paticular about what he eats.  Over the past few years I have been able to push him outside of his comfort zone here and there when it comes to food, but not too often and not without a fight.  The bad thing is that this plays a part in what recipes I can and can not fix, since there are recipes that I just can not tweak enough to get him to eat.  In the past I have created seperate dishes for us, but that's just too much work!  This week I found Amber's recipe for Rotel Crock Pot Chicken, and knew I really wanted to try it but I knew there was no way he would do the black beans or avacados.  Luckily, this recipe was easy enough for me to tweak to his liking.

I have increased the recipe to feed our family of six plus have leftovers.  If you do not need as much simply cut the recipe in half.

Ingredients:

6-8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 cans Rotel Diced Tomatoes and Green Chiles
1 small onion diced
2/3 cup water
2 packets of taco seasoning
fajita shells

Directions:

1.  Place thawed chicken breasts in the bottom of your crockpot.

2.  Mix together Rotel, onion, water, and taco seasoning.

3.  Pour the Rotel mixture over top of the chicken.

4.  Cook on low for 8 hours.

5.  Remove chicken breasts from crockpot and shred.  Place chicken back into crockpot and stir.

6.  Serve on fajita shells, and top with your favorite fajita toppings, we use cheese and sour cream. 

I ended up not eating mine on fajita shells instead I put the chicken in the bottom of a bowl, topped it with cheese (which melted) sour cream, and black olives.  It was delicious that way!

The Summer of No Pants Skirt Sewing Challenge - Week One


As I mentioned last week I am participating in The Summer of No Pants Skirt Sewing Challenge that Marigold is hosting at Hideous!  Dreadful!  Stinky!

Here is the skirt that I made this week for the first week of the challenge


This was the first skirt I have ever made for myself.  I have made skirts for the kids, but I have never made a skirt for myself.  I'm not really a skirt person, but I really want to be.  I think that's why the challenge appeals to me. 

Part of the challenge was to make one skirt from your fabric stash, make one skirt a reconstruction out of old clothes, and to make one with a non-elastic waist.  This was my skirt made from material from my fabric stash.  It's a knit fabric that I snagged out of a remnant bin a while back for next to nothing.  I had no idea what I was going to do with it, but I knew I wanted it.  By the way, did I mention that I despise working with knit?  Absolutely despise it. 

I used Simplicity pattern number 3634 for the skirt.  It's a winter pattern, but I really liked the skirt.  It was simple to put together, and was the perfect pattern for my first skirt. 

Now next week, I plan to tackle my skirt with a non-elastic waist.  I am going to use a zipper.  I have never sewn a zipper in before.  NEVER.  I have always avoided patterns that require zippers like the plague.

It's Too Hot to Go Outside Let's Sew!

It's incredibly hot and muggy outside today, so I have decided the best thing to do today is to stay inside in the air conditioning and spend my day sewing.  Sounds like a great day to me!

I am almost finished with my first skirt for the Summer of No Pants sewing challenge, and have found another sew along that I am going to have to join in as well.

{Make} A Bag Sew Along

Kelly at {Make} is hosting a wonderful Bag sew along.  Over the next eight weeks participants will construct a matching bag, toiletries pouch, mini cosmetics roll, Sunglasses/Glasses/Phone Case, an "Extras" pouch, and a Keyring decoration/zipper pull.  Kelly will be using a charm pack to create the projects but also suggests using it as a scrap buster project.

You can check learn more about Kelly's bag sew along here.

Frugal Fridays - Keeping The Kids Busy This Summer On a Budget



Join us for Frugal Fridays at Life as Mom.

Keeping kids entertained during the summer months can be hard, and when you are on a budget it can be downright impossible.

In the past the kids and I have looked forward to the free summer movie programs that many theater chains across the country offer. Yes, the movies are older movies, we may have already seen them, but there are still some that we haven't seen before. After the movies we will either go out to eat or we will take a picnic lunch and eat at the park. It depends on the weather and our budget. I always explain to the kids that even though the concession stand is open, we will not be getting anything from there. This is always explained before we get to the movie theater, that way the expectations are clear from the get go.

This year there aren't as many theaters offering free movies but Regal Theaters and The Great Escape will still offer free movies this summer.

AMC Theaters will offer summer kids movies for $1. They aren't free but at least they are still cheap compared to other theaters.

On Wednesdays National Amusement Theaters will offer Bookworm Wednesdays. On Bookworm Wednesdays kids six and over will receive free admission to the movie when they turn in a book report. Parents and younger siblings will be admitted for free as well.

If movies aren't your thing you might want to check out Kids Bowl Free. Kids who sign up for the program will receive two free games of bowling every day this summer. Parents and older siblings can purchase a pass that will allow them to play along with their kids this summer for $24.95.

So, how do you keep your kids entertained this summer when you are on a budget?

Cooking Thursday - Easy Pineapple Upside Down Cake





We always have a snack or dessert each night after supper.  I never plan out what I am going to have when I do my menu plan, and depend on what I have in my pantry for snacks.  Some nights they are simple, and other nights I cook something a little more extravagant.  One of my favorite desserts to make from my pantry is pineapple upside down cake. 

Ingredients:

1 can pineapple (you can use crushed, tidbits, or slices it doesn't matter)

cherries (which I did not have when I made this)

3/4 cups brown sugar

white or yellow cake mix

Directions:

1.  Drain pineapple juice from can and save it for use later.


2.  Grease bottom of a cake pan and preheat oven.

3.  Spread pineapple and cherries (if you are using them) across bottom of the cake pan.


4.  Sprinkle pineapple with brown sugar.


5.  Mix cake mix according to package directions with one exception, substitute the pineapple juice for the water that is called for in the recipe.  For example, my cake mix called for 1 1/2 cups of water.  I had one cup of pineapple juice, so I used it and a 1/2 cup of water.

6.  Pour cake mixture into the cake pan.

7.  Bake according to cake mix directions.

8.  Once cake is removed from oven allow it to cool for a few minutes before inverting onto a serving tray.

Works For Me Wednesday - Storing Cut Sewing Patterns



Join us for Works For Me Wednesday at We Are That Family.

I have a confession to make - I have no patience.  Not at all.  I don't like tedious work, I don't like taking my time, I want it done NOW!   I have been working on it, but let's face it I've been this way for over thirty years, I don't think I am going to be able to make a drastic change any time soon. 

My lack of patience really gets to me when I have a cut pattern.  There is no way that I can fold up that pattern and put it back in that nice envelope.  It just isn't going to happen for me.  I know some of you can do it but not me.

I have seen several great ways of storing cut patterns in the past, some much bettter than mine.  Everyone has a different way of doing it but I store mine in ziploc bags.  I stick the envelope in the front of the bag with the picture facing out, that way I can easily identify it, and put the pattern pieces behind the envelope. 


I really like this method.  They are easy to store, and I don't have to worry about losing my pattern pieces.

The Summer of No Pants Sewing Challenge


Marigold, who blogs at Hideous!  Dreadful!  Stinky!  is hosting a Summer of No Pants Sewing Challenge and I have decided to participate.

The rules of the challenge are simple.  Each participant is challenged to make a skirt each week for four weeks.  The first week started today, and participants have to have a finished skirt posted by Sunday night (YIKES!).  There is also a second challenge within the main challenge, it is to make one skirt from fabric already in your stash, make one skirt out of old clothes, one skirt that has a non-elastic waist (i.e. button or zip closure, or a wrap skirt), and one skirt any way you want to.  I don't know if I will be able to complete the second part of the challenge, I have the fabric stash covered but I am just not that good at repurposing clothes, and most of my skirt patterns have elastic waists.  So we will just have to see about that part of the challenge. 

Even if you don't want to participate in the challenge you should definetly check out Marigold's blog, she is a very talented woman, and her blog is a great source of inspiration!  Although, I do hope a few of you will decide to join us for the Summer of No Pants Sewing Challenge!

Tempt My Tummy Tuesday - Homemade Pineapple Ice Cream


Join us for Tempt My Tummy Tuesdays at Blessed with Grace.



Over the weekend we celebrated Little Man's birthday, and since we had a Luau themed party we decided to make Pineapple Ice Cream.  I searched and searched the Internet for a great Pineapple Ice Cream recipe but just could not find one that I really liked, so I decided to concoct my own recipe.  Luckily, it turned out great.  Let's be honest, if it hadn't turned out good, you wouldn't have heard about it.

2 cups white sugar

2 twelve ounce cans evaporated milk

1 fourteen ounce can sweetened condensed milk

1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

1 can crushed pineapple, drained

whole milk

Directions:

1.  Using an electric mixer cream eggs and sugar.

2.  Add in evaporated milk, condensed milk, and vanilla.  Mix well.

3.  Stir in crushed pineapple.

4.  Add whole milk until mixture reaches the fill line.

5.  Mix according to your ice cream freezer's manufacturers directions.

Enjoy!

Cooking Thursday - Italian Sausage with Green Peppers and Onions



Join us for Cooking Thursday at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.

 I've  mentioned before that I literally did not know how to boil water when I got married.  I had no
clue how to cook anything which meant I had to look up recipes for even the simplest of meals.  It's for that reason that I often post simple recipes that most people already know how to cook.  I know how it feels to be totally clueless when it comes to cooking. 

One of the simplest meals I know how to cook is Italian Sausage with Green Peppers and Onions.  It is a snap to put together, and on top of that is a very inexpensive meal.

Ingredients:

Italian Sausages
1 large green pepper or 2 small ones
1 medium sized onion

Directions:

1.  Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

2.  Spray bottom of a glass pan with cooking spray, and place Italian Sausages in it.

3.  Slice onions and green peppers into thin strips.  Place sliced onions and green peppers on top of Italian Sausages.


The green peppers in this picture are chopped, they were frozen and were what I had on hand.

4.  Cover pan with aluminum foil and place in oven.

5.  Cook in oven for 45 minutes to an hour.  I have found that length of cooking time depends on the brand of sausages that you use.

6.  Serve on hoagie rolls.





Happy Birthday to My Baby Boy!



Little Man turned seven today!  Seven! 

I just can't believe that this grown up boy



is this same boy










Wordless Wednesday








Works for Me Wednesday - Cleaning House

Join us for Works For Me Wednesday at We Are That Family.

I have to admit it, I am a reality TV junkie.  I am addicted to them.  My husband says that I watch them because I am nosey and it feeds into that but I like to watch them because I like to get ideas on how other people handle situations in their day to day life.  I especially like watching shows that feature big families.  I know that it's not a complete look at their life and that it only shows what they want you to see but it does give me ideas.

One of the shows that I watch is 19 Kids and Counting.  When it comes to cleaning house the Duggar family assigns each family member a "jurisdiction" that they are responsible for keeping clean.  I loved this idea!  In fact, I stole it.

Our house is big, and with six people in it, it's impossible for one person to keep clean.  We have tried everything from chore charts, to daily chore lists, to the Fly Lady for helping to keep it clean.  Something always just gets missed.  So jurisdictions have worked for us.  We have assigned each family member a room in the house that they are responsible for, I gave the older kids rooms that require more work with the younger kids receiving the easier rooms. 

So I have no idea how the Duggar's actually deal with jurisdictions past that point, so here is where my ideas took over.  Each day we take fifteen minutes twice a day to clean our jurisdictions.  We typically clean them once around lunchtime, and then again once right before bedtime.  I set the timer for fifteen minutes and we all get to work.  This means each person spends about thirty minutes a day cleaning, and our house stays cleaned.  About one day a week, typically on Saturdays we each do a complete and detailed cleaning of our areas.

If someone's jurisdiction doesn't have a lot of work that needs to be done during the fifteen minute time period, I will assign them a cleaning task from the Fly Lady's Detailed Cleaning List.  I find there is often things on her list that I overlook, but the tasks are simple.  They range from cleaning the window sills, to wiping down baseboards, cleaning ceiling fans, to wiping down the cabinet fronts.  They are simple tasks that can easily be completed within the fifteen minute time frame.

So that's how we handle the cleaning responsibilities at our house.  I want to hear from you, what do you do?

Change is Good, Right???

I sure hope so because I have took the plunge tonight and made several changes to my blog.  Did you notice the name change?  Musings of a Modern Day Mom is now the Modern Day Mom.  On top of that we now have the domain name of http://www.themoderndaymom.com/.  I know I have several subscribers who receive my posts by email, a few who subscribe using Google Connect, and more who subscribe via Google Reader, how you view my blog will not change, and you should automatically be redirected to our new blog. 

I have also signed up for both Twitter and Facebook tonight!  I am excited about Twitter, I have never used it before and it's kind of scary looking but I am sure I can figure it out.  You can find the links to both my Twitter and Facebook pages on my sidebar.  If you follow me on either site I will return the favor and follow you back!

I am still playing around with the layout of the blog and how it works so please be patient with me if things look a little wonky when you visit.  I am trying to work it all out. 

There are so many ideas floating around in my mind right now, and the name change has really given me some inspiration.  I have some emails sent out to some of my favorite bloggers concerning guest posts and I am hoping to have some great guest bloggers visiting soon!

To celebrate the changes I have a giveaway coming up soon.  I have been contacted by a company about hosting a giveaway for them and I am VERY excited!  Keep your eye out to find out more about it and learn how to win!

Tempt My Tummy Tuesday - Rainy Day Chili

Join us for Tempt My Tummy Tuesdays at Blessed with Grace.

It's been a while since I have had the time to write a Tempt My Tummy Tuesday post, so I have plenty of new recipes to share.  This recipe came about on a cold, rainy day when my daughter requested chili and I did not have the ingredients to make my normal chili recipe.  I had purchased a few cans of Rotel Diced Tomatoes and Green Chiles because they were on sale but I had no clue what to use them in.  I decided to use them in my chili, and adjusted the spices to compensate for the green chiles.  The chili actually turned out great, it was spicy, but my husband said he thought it was the best chili I had ever made, so it's definitely a keeper.  Here is the recipe I came up with:

Ingredients
2 cans Rotel Diced Tomatoes and Green Chiles
2 Cans Mild Chili Beans (you can use hot beans for a spicier chili)
2 pounds hamburger
1 tablespoon garlic powder
l onion diced
3 tablespoons minced garlic
1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoon cumin
1 1/2 Quarts of Water

Directions

1.  In skillet add in hamburger, sprinkle with 1 tablespoon garlic powder, and brown.  Once hamburger is browned drain off grease.

2.   Add hamburger and all ingredients into a large soup pan.

3.  Turn heat on medium-high and allow chili to come to a boil.

4.  Once chili has begun to boil, reduce heat to low.  Allow chili to simmer for two to three hours stirring frequently.

Menu Plan Monday - May 10th to 16th


Join us for Menu Plan Monday at I'm An Organizing Junkie.

I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day!  I enjoyed a very low key day with my kids, parents, grandparents, brothers and sister.  It was a great day overall, although the evening was a little scary when my other 80 year old grandmother called me to tell me she had just been involved in an accident involving three other cars.  Luckily no one was injured, the car is totalled but a car can be replaced, a person can not. 

It's another busy week, and I am not sure exactly how things will play out this week but if things go according to plan (which never happens) this is what we will be eating:


Tuesday - Hamburgers with Bread Machine Hamburger Buns, Baked Beans (Recipe Coming Soon)


Thursday - Fish, Garlic Red Potatoes, Brussel Sprouts, Hushpuppies

Friday - Jennie O Turkey Breast and Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, Corn, Yummy Dinner Rolls
