Yummy Chicken and Wild Rice Stew

Today I made a slow cooker dinner. And can I just say It was scrumptious! Here is the recipe. This stew is so healthy so go ahead have a second bowl guilt free.

 I made a few tweaks. Instead of plain wild rice I used Near East brand. I didn't use the bouillon cubes and just substituted the packet of seasoning that came with the rice. I didn't have fresh crimini mushroom on hand so I used canned. I also didn't have any spinach so I just didn't use any.  I added cauliflower just cause. It would also be easy to make vegetarian. I have nothing negative to say about this recipe except for I scalded my mouth trying to scarf it down!

I pureed some for W.R. too. I couldn't shovel it to him fast enough! He ate 4 ounces of this stuff. Hubby had two bowls and requested it for his lunch tomorrow. I highly recommend making this for your family. Here are some photos of W.R. chowing down. Enjoy!


He also approves of those no knead dinner rolls I mentioned


 Also HUGE development in our house tonight! W.R. FINALLY took to his sippy. I have been rackin my brain on how to get him to take it. All I can say is that persistence is key. I tried all kinds of different cups; spouts, straws, a small normal cup (which was a mess) turns out the avent sipper with a silicone spout did the trick. I'm so proud of my growing boy. Since we have moved into this place he has hit some pretty major milestones. On new years eve day he started to crawl. Praise God I thought that boy would never be on the move. I love him so! <3
