Crockpot Green Chicken Curry

This week’s lunch was fantastic!

Despite the warming temperatures, I still busted out the crockpot for a simple and satisfying lunch.

And to make an already easy recipe, even easier, I went with the frozen veggies.

I threw everything into the crockpot…

And waited for the deliciousness.

Usually, I eat leftovers all week long and am less enthused by Friday.  But not with this lunch!

I was more than happy to reheat my curry for the 4th day in a row and everyone made a comment about how amazing it smelled (for the 4th day in a row).

The BOY and I had a super fun Friday night date night at the tennis courts.  After a long week, I am more than happy to collapse onto my couch with a glass of red wine and a few squares of dark chocolate.

Also…I added some of the professional pictures from my Aerial Yoga class to my blog post.  They are super cool, so check them out!
