Fun Friday


Slept in today - although the phone did ring at 10 am, I just kept sleeping through it and ignored it. Oh the bliss. I love Fridays for the sleep, first of all.



I took my time doing little stuff and then went to the grocery for some things. The boys and Stephen were at work all day getting things done and Savanna played with Molly. I made curried chicken and rice for dinner with some summer squash on the side. They (3 boys) seemed to really like it. (Recipe below if you are interested.) Larry and Savanna aren't as crazy about the recipe but they ate it and then played Monopoly. I would really, really like to go outside but it's so blasted hot you can't be out there more than about 5 minutes. So I guess I'll exercise inside and read my Bible and books in my rocking chair. I think tonight I'm going to light all the candles in my bathroom and fill up the tub,get in and soak while I listen to Duke Ellington.


Indian Curried Chicken




2 cups shitake mushrooms, sliced

1 cup onions, chopped

1/2 cup celery, chopped


1 medium garlic clove, minced

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs , cut into bite-size pieces

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

1/4 cup fat-free chicken broth

1 & 1/2 teaspoons curry powder

1 teaspoon table salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon paprika

3 cups canned crushed tomatoes

1/4 cup golden seedless raisins

Hot cooked rice

Saute mushrooms, onions, celery and garlic for 5 minutes; put in crock pot with chicken.
Stir together flour and chicken broth until smooth; add to crock pot. Add curry powder, salt, pepper, paprika, tomatoes and raisins. Cook in crockpot on LOW for 5 hours.
Serve over rice.

As some of you friends know, my husband is severely allergic to mushrooms, therefore we don't ever include them in any recipe, so I don't use them in this but left it in for you. :-) Makes 4 servings; 1/4 of this dish is 7 weight watcher points
