Dogs and their people

Here's some fun pictures for you.  An artist took pictures of dog owners and their dogs, then photoshopped them to show them to dressed like their owners. I think you'll enjoy the results!

Cooking Thursday

There seem to be a lot of chicken and rice recipes.  I like this one because it is made in the crock pot, and it has wild rice in it.  I usually make it with chicken breasts; this time I cut the breast into cubes so it would cook quicker.  It's quick to throw together and very tasty!

Herbed Chicken and Wild Rice
1 pkg (6 oz) long grain and wild rice mix
6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 tablespoon oil
1 teaspoon butter
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup water
3 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon

Place rice in 5 quart slow cooker; set aside seasoning packet.  In large skillet, brown chicken in oil and butter. Add to slow cooker.
In small bowl, combine the soup, water, bacon, spices and the contents of the seasoning packet. Pour over top of chicken and rice.
Cover and cook on low for 5 to 6 hours or until chicken juices run clear.
