Here’s a picture of the little kitten the girls have decided to give lots of love to. He is the runt of the liter. His mother is one of the wild cats that stay here but he is anything but wild. He is definitely a people kitty. He loves being where we are and will come running when they call his name. His mother’s name is Mexico so they decided to call him Oklahoma-Okie for short. We have been feeding him special food hoping he will catch up to his brothers and sisters.
I have a whole chicken in the crock pot for supper. I tried a new recipe that I found online. This is the first time I’ve tried it so I’ll have to let you know if we like it but it smells delicious. I think I have mentioned before I want to try out new crock pot recipes more this summer. Hopefully, it will mean easier for me and less heat in the kitchen. Along with the chicken we will be having stir fry veggies-fresh from our garden. Squash, zucchini, green onions and peas. YUM!! The recipe is as follows.
- 4 teaspoons salt
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 large roasting chicken
- 1 cup chopped onion
- In a small bowl, combine the spices.
- Remove any giblets from chicken and clean chicken.
- Rub spice mixture onto the chicken.
- When ready to cook, put chopped onion in bottom of crock pot.
- Add chicken. No liquid is needed, the chicken will make it’s own juices.
- Cook on low 4-8 hours.
Today is a beautiful day here in Floyd. Temperature is about 72 degrees right now. We have a strong breeze and the sun is shining. We got a little rain last night which our plants really appreciated. I have clothes to hang on the line. My girls are doing school on the front porch. My Hubby is at work and our supper is cooking in the crockpot. God is SO good. I am indeed a truly blessed woman.
Enjoy your day and God bless.
