mY PiNteRest projects #4

Retirement is good great.  I'm finding time to sew, cook, read, relax, do yoga, clean more (but only if I want to), relax, and just simply enjoy my free time.  I've been really enjoying the no deadlines and less hectic lifestyle.  I still don't particularly enjoy the cleaning up after cooking, but it's getting done.  My husband actually told me I was cooking too much!!  Maybe I'm spoiling him, but after 33 years of marriage, he probably deserves it.  I love you hubby!

Recap from week 1:
I've decided that one of my retirement projects will be to post about projects and recipes I have tried on Pinterest. What I post will strictly be my opinion. I hope that giving my opinion does not offend anyone.  Just click on recipe title to get the actual recipe..  Thanks for reading!!

Weekend Brunch Casserole
This was an evening meal for us and it was delicious.  It took a little longer to prepare because I had to scramble the sausage and I also don't mind it having some crispy bits.  I used spicy sausage (YUM!) and added red peppers and onions.  I used 7 eggs because I thought it needed more eggs and I also used sharp cheddar instead of mozzarella.  This was a great dinner so I know it would be wonderful at breakfast.  We had some to eat the next morning and I froze some to eat at a later date.
*****Very good, will definitely make again.
This chicken was very easy to prepare.  I like delicious food and if it can be cooked in a crockpot, I say YEAH!!  Fix it and forget it.  We did eat it without the rice but I'm sure it would be even more delicious with it. 

*****Yes, very good!!!! Will make again.

Caramel apple crisp

OH MY GOODNESS!!!  This was utterly delicious.  Yummy for my tummy, but not so much for my waistline!   Is it low cal if I didn't serve it with ice cream?!??!
I believe moderation is probably the key when it comes to eating this dessert, but that is a lesson I still need to learn.

*****DELICIOUS!!  Will make this over and over.

Thanks to Lauren, Brenda, and Dana for the pin recommendations this week and, Lake Lure Cottage Kitchen, and Hil's blog for the great recipes.
