We have only used a sitter 1x since Hunter has been born for a local Halloween Party that we attended. We didn’t even go our for our 3rd wedding anniversary last month. It’s a bummer but it happens when times flies when you’re busy chasing after your kids and being major penny pinchers.
But we treated ourselves to the concert and I can’t wait!!!
I also can’t wait to make this Slow Cooker Chinese Orange Chicken again soon. (Master of the segway!)
Slow Cooker Chinese Orange Chicken is once of my favorite things to make in our slow cooker because it’s affordable, easy to make, and so delicious. I often double the recipe since it’s so easy to do, and it’s a family favorite so we love it for leftovers.
While orange chicken is typically fried, like general tso’s, this isn’t because it’s made in the slow cooker. I personally don’t mind the difference as the flavor is
I recently made this for a neighbor who had a baby at just 27 weeks. (awww!!) I organized a meal train for her so that people could give her meals while he is in the NICU. It certainly would make her life easier to have a nice meal to come home to 2x a week.
I doubled the Slow Cooker Chinese Orange Chicken recipe, as well as my instant pot fried rice and sauteed sesame broccoli. The perfect amount in order for us to have dinner and leftovers, plus dinner and leftovers for her family.
I love spicy things, oooooo the hotter the better! But I know that not everyone loves to have their mouth on fire, so I know that it this a recipe that is a sure crowd pleaser because it’s nice and mellow.
