Looking for a variation to your standard baked chicken dinner? Well, I've used this recipe from (don't you love that site?!) a few times, and I just wanted to share in case you're in need of something new...for those chicken breasts in the fridge.

The death of someone who had been a fixture in our family for what feels like forever speaks to the cliché sayings that we all know. Life is short. And while I can't say that her life was "cut short" it still serves as a reminder that no matter how well we live, how much we love, how graciously we serve, our lives won't last forever. All good things must come to an end. #Truth

I had these lofty plans in my mind to complete all these fun activities, but...well, it just didn't happen. There are still a few activities I plan to do tomorrow, but as far as crafts go, we kept it real simple.

Here is a Paleo Chicken Recipe that is too simple not to try. All you need is some chicken, a crockpot, and a few spices. This recipe is very slightly modified from Everyday Paleo, a great intro reference book for eating Paleo.
