TGIF!

It's a nasty day out, bleh. But my day is looking better because the other nurse switched this weekend with me, THANK GOD! I'll be spending my sister's last few days in the US with her before she goes to Italy for a whole year! It's more important to me than anything. This weekend has the potential to be a tough one for eating but I'm going to do my best. I'm bringing my own banana nut muffins I made for breakfast and I can eat lightly for lunch. Not sure what we're doing for dinners! But I will count all my calories and be a good girl!

Another slow cooker recipe...this one is GREAT to use up leftovers!!!! Leftover chicken, seafood, pork, veggies...it goes PERFECTLY in this!!!!
