5 Ingredients, 4 different Ways!

Chicken Salsa

This is a tasty meal that can be throw together in just minutes. 
 After My Princess # 2 was born my sweet friend Michelle
 emailed me a ton of quick & easy recipes. One
of which, was Chicken Salsa and it called for chicken breast
and a jar of salsa. It was great just like that, but I wanted
to add some veggies.  It's kinda like chicken tortilla soup, but why
stop there?!  You can eat it as a soup, on pasta, on rice, or in a wrap.
5 Ingredients that can be made 4 different ways!

Tyson Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast or tenderloins
1 jar Salsa
1 can black beans
1 can corn
1 can chicken stock

*Optional toppings:
Tortilla Wraps (can be buttered, sliced & baked in oven)
Sour Cream
*Optional sides: pasta, rice, wheat wraps

1- Place Chicken in slow cooker & top with remaining ingredients
2- Cover & Cook

To be honest, I don't really worry about how long it cooks.  Anytime I use
my slow cooker, I just place everything in the pot in the morning and forget
about it until dinner. Easy Right?!

I hope you enjoy!

What do you love?

Do you love the simple things in life?
I sure do!

I also LOVE taking pictures of my 2 sweet girls!

 Eating under the table...This pic is priceless! I busted her at 7am hiding under the table eating a cookie. LOL! So, I did what any Mommy would do...I ran grabbed my camera:)
It's blurry, bc I didn't have time to change the settings on my camera & Once she spotted me,
she was out of there! LOL

 I'm not sure which Gabriella loves more... Sleeping with Hair dryers or Sleeping in a swaddler

Staring into space

Smiles for Mommy...I only captured 1/2 of her, because I was busy talking to her
& not looking threw my camera. LOL It may be only 1/2 of her,
but theres still so much cuteness I can barely stand it:))
Baby feet

Throwing Rocks

Something Decorative, Yummy, & Fun....

Hi Everyone! 

Happy 4th of July!! It is my FAVORITE holiday!!
I am Delina from Dew This and I am so happy to be here guest posting today :)

I am a SAHM of two boys who enjoys just 'dewing' a bit of this and that

 I like to make decorative 4 x 4 tiles and just finished my 4th of July ones

I also enjoy baking - like yummy Fruit Pizza

Today I am going to show you my latest creation for kids!!

Planning on traveling this summer? We are a little bit and with two small boys trips can get long sometimes!!!

So I have created the perfect, quiet activity that you can take ANYWHERE!!

A Painter's Easel

perfect for painting your car, books, windows and anything your little artist finds!

Here is what you need:

File Folder or Cardstock
Laminate or Contact Paper (to make it last longer)
A paintbrush

Now head over here to print out the Easel template. 

Glue onto your file folder or  print on cardstock.

Laminate or cover with contact paper.

Grab your paintbrush and start to paint!!

This is a great imaginative play tool for home, school, dr. offices, car trips, you name it!

I hope you enjoy!!

Let me know if you are interested in a plain template that you can color yourself and I will get one to you! 

Hope you all have a great 4th of July!!

Thank you Delina for sharing some of your creative ideas with us!
