Our day started with a big hot breakfast.
Pancakes and Ship Wreck (to others it is also known as Skillet Breakfast.)
Add a small amount of Olive Oil to the pan.
Add Potato O'Brien and cooked sausage to the pan.
Cook until potatoes are brown (about 7 minutes)
Push the sausage and potatoes to one side of the skillet and add the scrabbled eggs to the other side.
(TIP: When scrambling several eggs, scramble one egg prior to adding the next egg.
This will whisk the eggs more thoroughly.)
Once the egg is cooked (scrambled) mix the egg and potato and sausage together.
Most of the time I add cheese as well, but did not this day.
Of course we had to have coffee as well.
What a great day to start a blustery day.
I top my Ship Wreck with some of our canned salsa. Yumo!
I just love him peeking at me in this picture!
For lunch we had left overs. The children had left over Taco Bake. You can find the recipe by clicking here. Todd and I had left over Mexican Crock Pot Chicken. This is one of our favorites. You can eat it on a bed of Romaine Lettuce or a fajita shell, or a tortilla shell. I used low carb tortilla shell this time.
Mexican Crock Pot Chicken
- 3 chicken skinless and boneless chicken breast
- 1 can of diced tomatoes with green chilies (drain the juice)
- 1 can of black beans (do not drain)
- 1 can of chili beans (do not drain)
- 1 package of Taco Seasoning
- 1 can of black olives (drain the juice)
- 1 can of chopped green chilies
- Place the chicken at the bottom of the crock pot.
- Add the rest of the ingredients in the order listed and do not mix.
- Cook on low for 8 hours.
- Once cooked, shred the chicken with two forks. (The chicken is tender and moist.)
- Stir well.
After lunch we went downstairs to our main living room and built a fire. We bought four bundles of wood to be prepared for our day of indoors.
We watched videos and took a nap. Papa was the first to fall asleep.
Then Taj snuggled into his Papa.
After dinner the two left and Kera arrived. She ate dinner and shared how her class is going. She completed her first week. She has decided to go back to school to get her massage therapy license to add to her clientele and get more appointments at the spa where she works.
Our Blizzard thankfully did not produce a lot of snow. Hardly any, but the wind did howl and the temperatures did drop. What a wonderful day Todd and I had! Woo Hoo!
