These kids 
melt.my.heart.


It probably comes as no surprise, Maddox is not lacking in the attention department!  He's the motivating factor in getting dressed quickly for school, in finishing dinner, in cleaning bedrooms, in completing homework...whatever the task, whenever it's finished, it's playtime with baby!  (and baby loves it!)

The kids are so determined to teach Maddox how to play peek-a-boo.  I'm not sure he's completely caught on--he smiles at them no matter what they're doing!

Speaking of peeking...nice transition, yes?

We tried this Rachael Ray crock-pot dinner recipe this week and loved it!  For her original recipe, click on the recipe name.  Here's our version...it was yummy!


No Peeking Peking Chicken

4 bone-in chicken hind quarters, skin discarded 
Salt and pepper 
3/4 cup chopped onion
4 cloves garlic, chopped 
1/4 cup soy sauce 
3 tbsp. honey 
1 tbsp. grated fresh ginger
 1/4 tsp. sesame oil 

1/4 c. chopped green onions, for garnish

Season the chicken with salt and pepper and place in a greased 6- to 7-qt. slow cooker.

In a small bowl, combine onion, the garlic, soy sauce, honey, ginger and sesame oil. Pour the mixture over the chicken, cover and cook on low heat until the chicken is tender  (6 hours).
Serve with the pan juices, basmati rice, and sprinkled with green onions.
