All Stocked Up On Crazy

October 7, 2014

Hi friends! Did you have a good weekend?

We had a good one here…started it with only two dogs, and somehow had three by the time Sunday rolled around:

Yep…that’s one more cattledog than we normally have.  Smile 

I’ve been following Emma for a while on Facebook—obviously we have a soft spot for Australian Cattledogs in our family, and Emma looked like a great one.  The local shelter she was staying with kept posting pictures of her, and I would think, Man, somebody needs to adopt this dog!

When they put a call out for foster homes due to an influx at the city shelter, I decided that we should foster Emma for a while.  She came over and met our dogs and Tenny (our cat) on Saturday afternoon, and did good with all of them, and with Lila as well. 

She was standoffish at first, but warmed up really (really) quickly:

Now the only thing that remains to be seen is if she stays a foster…or joins our family for good, haha.

Other than that, this weekend was pretty relaxing.  We went to a game night at our friends’ house on Saturday—our second “Cards Against Humanities” game in as many weeks.  We went to church the next day, which was probably needed. 

I made some easy turkey vegetable soup last night:

And cooked up this coconut chicken curry soup in the slow cooker this afternoon.  SUPER easy and yummy—it was just 2.5 cups chicken broth and 1 can of coconut milk (full fat), 3 tbsp. red curry paste, 2 tbsp. chopped fresh ginger, 1 tsp. garlic salt, and 4 chicken breasts in the slow cooker.  I cooked it on high for 3 hours, then added chopped zucchini and cooked it for another hour.   When it was done cooking, I shredded the chicken before serving:


I wish we’d added more vegetables—I think canned tomatoes, mushrooms, and peppers would make delicious additions.  Maybe even broccoli and snow peas—go wild! Winking smile 

My pictures officially suck, but at least I shared some of what we’ve been eating, right?

Thank you for all of your comments about my last post—it means a lot to me.  Hope you have a great night—I’m off to snuggle with two cattledogs, a terrier, a cat, and my husband.
