Yummy Italian Chicken

Found this recipe on the Crock A Doodle Do blog and figured I'd give it a whirl. Looked easy enough (yes, even for me). And, we went out hunting with some friends again tonight, so I knew I wouldn't have much time to make dinner.
This turned out SO good, we're going to have to do it again. Shane and G both loved it and told me I could make it anytime.
She had some other recipes on her blog that also looked really easy and good as well. I'm going to try to make more stuff in the crock pot so that we don't eat out so much. We eat fast food way too much because we're all too tired to cook, and we just want dinner fast since I don't get home most days until 5:30.
If I could come home, eat dinner, and relax for a bit before I had to put something else in for tomorrow, I think it would work out better. At least that's what I'm hoping :)
This recipe made enough to feed all three of us plus me and Shane each got a good size lunch for work tomorrow too.
And now I will leave you with this so cute (and so true!) little piece of fun.

Catching Up...

Whoa. Haven't blogged for a while have I? Well, September was a busy month for us. It always is. The hunts are in September, and lots of getting ready going on.
Plus, my dad got married last Saturday! So, yeah, lots going on.
This year Shane and Garrett both got a deer as well as our friend, Colin, that lives next door. They got them all within about a half hour of each other and all in the same place! Pretty cool huh?
John (Colin's dad) spotted them, Colin shot one, and then a bunch more just started popping up all over the side of the mountain! So they called us on the radio and we got down there as quick as possible and shot two more. It was awesome.
Here are some photos from the hunt:

Well, that's all I have to share right now. There is probably loads more that happened in the last nearly two months, but I don't remember right now. I am too old to be expected to remember that far back now lol.
