I hope as the storm continues along the East Coast, that you are all hunkered down, safe and sound.
Today brings Day 9 of LOAD. The theme for Saturdays is "All About You". The prompt today was to go back to your childhood, look at your interests then and how they shape you now. I dug out the photo album my Mom put together for me when I left home, and chose about 4 different pictures to scan and make larger (baking, softball, cribbage, piano) and I decided to go with the baking.
This picture makes me laugh. Every Christmas, it was tradition for me to go over to my Aunt's house and help ice her scotch cookies. She'd even let me mix and color the icing, and this one year, I decided to go bright green. Because green with a red cherry on top just SCREAMS Christmas, right? HA! Not the best decision, LOL. But I always loved baking as a child, and I still do now. So that's why I decided to scrap this particular picture.
My supply list won't be complete, I'm afraid. I don't know what brand the snowflake paper is, nor the green ribbon, nor the little bells. I raided my large Christmas stash. :)

Thanks for looking!
Today also brings another new-to-me recipe. Today's recipe is from http://crockpot365.blogspot.ca/. It's no secret I love my crock pot, and I've made a number of recipes from this blog over the past few months. I was looking for a new chicken recipe, because I've been cooking and eating a lot of beef lately. So, how about Margarita Chicken ?
Here are the ingredients:
I didn't have chicken thighs, but I did have two fairly large boneless chicken breasts in the freezer, so I cut those up. The only thing I had to buy was the Margarita Mix - and trust me, it won't go to waste, LOL. I even considered making a margarita to go with supper, but the thought of having a frozen drink in the middle of a snowstorm didn't really appeal to me.
Once it was done, I shredded the chicken so each piece would be coated as much as possible with the sauce.
Two thumbs up!
I hope the rest of your weekend is free of snow, wind and cold.
