Now We Are Six

The End

When I was One,
I had just begun.

When I was Two,
I was nearly new.

When I was Three,
I was hardly me.

When I was Four,
I was not much more.

When I was Five,
I was just alive.

But now I am Six, I'm as clever as clever,
So I think I'll be six now for ever and ever.

-A. A. Milne

I've got to remember this...


whenever I need to calm you down, without fail, all I have to do is hum the theme song from Indiana Jones or Mission Impossible. Weird, I know, but useful.

So, I am planning to post every day in February with words and some sort of picture. Anyone else want to play?

Crock Pot Tuesday

Brown Sugar Chicken from A Year of Crockpotting

12 boneless, skinless chicken thighs or 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. lemon-lime soda
2/3 c. vinegar or white wine
3 cloves smashed and chopped garlic
2 T soy sauce
1 tsp ground black pepper

Use a 5-6 quart crock pot
Plop the chicken into the crockpot.
Cover with the brown sugar, pepper, chopped garlic, and soy sauce.
Add the vinegar and pour in soda. It will bubble.
Cover and cook on low for 6-9 hours or high for 4-5 hours. The chicken is done when it is cooked through and has reached desired consistency. The longer you cook it the more tender it will be.
Serve over a bowl of rice with a ladle full of broth.
