It is Soooo Good

Standard

Can this Paleo Diet be this good and this good for you and the same time?

Here’s proof! Tell me!

I say a resounding YES!

This is probably one of the easiest and most tasty I’ve done.

Crockpot Chicken Vegetable Soup

3 skinless chicken leg quarters

1/2 lb. baby carrots

4 stalks of celery, cut to your preference

1 yellow onion, julienned

Water, just to cover

No Salt, Pepper, Mrs. Dash to taste just sprinkled over top, layered according to order I listed.

I let it cook about 3 hours on high, then added 2 cups of hot water with 2 bouillon cubes dissolved, poured in at the side, then let it cook about another hour on low.

I let it cool enough then to dish up in a souffle casserole dish and refrigerate overnight.  Had this for lunch….the next day.  Excellent.  My husband made a pot of rice on the side to have with his.  I love it just the way it is.  It’s breakfast time right now as I type this.  May have that instead of eggs. Hmm. Well, maybe I’ll have it for lunch after Church!

(Oh, I know it’s not tomorrow but I had that post in my Drafts a couple days and didn’t realize it.)

Bless us O Lord, in these, Thy gifts, which we are about to receive.  In Thy Bounty, through Christ our Lord, Amen! (a table blessing we often said during my childhood)

Memories at the Table

Standard

As an Army family we lived in a variety of places from Mississippi to Alaska and worked our way back.  One of the things we learned at the Table while we lived in Kalamazoo, MI in the early 60s is a prayer Mama said during her childhood.  Often we still say it in our home:

Bless us, O Lord,

In these, Thy gifts

Which we are about to receive

From Thy bounty

Through Christ our Lord.

Amen
