A Wife Loved Like The Church

No Cook November update

Posted on: November 17, 2009

We are officially 17 days in to NCN.

How’s it going so far?

A-maz-ing.

Seriously.

I love “not” cooking.

I did actually cook this past weekend for house church, but aside from that my cooking has been pretty limited (I made breakfast once). Most of the recipes I have used are big hits. However there are a few duds. One night we had pumpkin soup. Dud. Well, in all fairness, it was much better once I added more salt. A lot more salt. But, I went into it knowing it might flop, so I grabbed a rotisserie chicken from New Pi as back up. Jonathan was grateful. 🙂

The best dinner (in my opinion) has been Maple Dijon Chicken or Salsa Chicken and Black Bean Soup. The first dish has sweet potatoes that turned into these delicious buttery morsels. The second dish has some nice kick to it and the chicken was so tender and juicy. We had no leftovers.

Speaking of leftovers… That has been the one down side to NCN. We aren’t getting as many leftovers as I planned. Most of the dishes have been consumed that same night or only enough is spared for just Jonathan’s lunch the next day.  But that’s a nice problem to have when it comes to leftovers I suppose.

I’m not sure I could do a 365 crockpot plan, but I most definitely plan to keep using it more after November is up. We’ve got some crazy life changes coming in the next four months and I’ve no doubt the crockpot will be a staple in our home.

Are you expecting baby number 3? Moving? Job change?

We’re moving. It’s in the area. Once things are more “final” I’ll post some details. It’s kinda exciting.

And let’s not even joke around about Baby 3 for at least another 18+ months. For real.
