my forgotten love…

Yes, this is a non-Lincoln related post… mostly anyway…

While I’ve been spending my days nursing, changing diapers and trying to get baby Lincoln to nap, I have completely abandoned the website that occupied so many hours of my life pre-baby… Pinterest!

Well, I logged on today and my love was reignited 🙂

Although I don’t have much time right now to devote to recreating home decorating ideas I find or putting together any inspiring outfits, I am always on the lookout for new recipes.

Not a lot of cooking has been going on the past six weeks (aside from some grilling that my lovely husband has been handling), but I want to get back to it soon… And although I think it will be awhile before Lincoln has any sense of our daily routines, I do want to be sure that we are a family that sits down at the table and has dinner together every night.

I currently do not own a slow cooker, but have plans to get one soon.  Although it may not make the most fancy meals, I feel like it might be a great way to make some easy dinners, when I don’t have a ton of free time on my hands.  So, here are a few delicious looking ‘crock pot’ recipes I found today…

Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken

Crock Pot Salsa Chicken  (this one looks super easy…)

Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas

Apparently I am in the mood for some Mexican food… If you have any good slow cooker recipes, please let me know!

A quick Lincoln update… baby boy is six weeks old already!  I have moments where I think, “Wow!  How have six weeks already gone by?!” … and then again, I have moments (often when I am attempting to rock a screaming baby to sleep) when I think, “It’s ONLY been six weeks?!” 😉

I know in the long run, these early weeks will seem like such a blur.  So, I try to focus on the peaceful moments with Lincoln, rather than those loud screaming in my ear moments 🙂

  1. The crockpot saved me so many times when Meredith, Michael and Taylor were born and growing up. Good Thinking Janis!

  2. Definitely agree, get a slow cooker! I need to use ours more for sure. Those recipes look delish! And of course Lincoln is so kissable!
