 I love food and I love to cook.  I love my husband and I love cooking for him.  However, there are times when I just don't have alot of time - but even when pressed, I like presentation!  I cooked this chicken in the crockpot all day after an overnight of marinating in a dry rub.  It was incredibly easy, as well as juicy and fall off the bone tender!  I roasted off some sweet potatoes with rosemary and oregano.  Then topped the two with spinach and red bell peppers that I did a light saute on so the peppers would remain crunchy!  It was visually pleasing and so delicious.  We really enjoyed it and even Coop loved those potatoes!

 Yesterday was a day spent with my niece, nephew, and sis-in-law.  We had the very best time.  We brought the kids to the Botanical Gardens.  It was hot out, but they enjoyed the sprinklers!  They also enjoyed seeing "Tuck" (from Wonder Pets) and the other turtles, the gold fish, dragonflies, and searching for the "hiding" panda bear in the bamboo forest!  It was a beautiful day seen through the eyes of children.  I we were only able to keep that wonder and delight.  I love the glimpses I am still able to see from time to time.
