Turns out the 3rd Monday in January is also know as the most depressing day of the year. Shocked?
Ya me neither.
I had the day off work, so I spent the day cooking and cleaning. In retrospect, I should have skipped the cleaning and watched Love Actually. Since watching the Golden Globes last night and seeing Colin Firth win for The King's Speech, Im in the mood for a Colin Firth movie marathon and why not kick it off with Love Actually. Not only does it feature Colin Firth but also Liam Neeson, Hugh Grant AND Professor Snape. Yes I know, it's very strange that I harbor a crush on Professor Snape. But there it is.
And then were do we go from Love Actually ? Pride & Prejudice. Of course. Probably best to watch that a couple times---and then watch the 2005 version with *sigh* Matthew MacFayden. Now that would have been a proper way to spend my day off.
On the food side:
For dinner I had salad topped with shredded chicken cooked in the slow cooker yesterday. I took the chicken breasts and poured Corn & Black Bean Salsa over it and cook it on low all day & then shred the chicken. Then it is good in enchiladas, tacos or on salad. So Chicken Slow Cooked with Corn & Black Bean Salsa (from Tastefully Simple, natch.) on top of salad and then I topped it with light ranch dressing mixed with our Pomegrante Chipotle Sauce. You can't beat the smokey chipotle mixed with cook ranch.
Now in the Slow Cooker is a Spicy Seafood Stew. It's my first try on seafood stew, so I'll have to try it and then let you know if it is worth giving it a go!
Know anyone who needs Girl Scout Cookies? Yes Anna is on a mission to sell 125. I think she is 1/2 way there....
I've got this Spicy Seafood Stew going in the crockpot, let's see how that turns out
