Accidental Dinner

 I accidentally cooked the yummiest dinner tonight! The original menu was Chicken Tortilla Soup in the crock pot, but I must have measured the spices wrong...because it was so spicy that a little taste of the broth made my ears burn! OOPS. Definitely not edible for me or the kids. Adrian heated up some hot dogs and edamame for the kids, and I started cooking this...Coconut Curry Chicken.

Yesterday, I cleaned out the pantry. I've been meaning to do this for awhile but kept putting it off. My motivation yesterday was that I needed cans! I was secretly hoping that a lot of canned goods would be expired so I could use them for my craft area/desk organization project. (I'll show pics of that once it's finished.) 

Well, only 2 cans were expired, but I found a lot of good stuff that we should be cooking with. (The original dinner recipe called for 5 canned goods!) Two of the things I found were coconut milk, and organic canned pumpkin. I had been thinking all day about what to do with the pumpkin, and finally decided on Whole Wheat Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins. I am going to put the recipes in a separate post, that way I can include more pics of the process of making them.

Here are my two little helpers! Even though they both had already eaten, they loved the chicken and the muffins!
