    Your picture looks great! I am looking forward to not cooking for a picky teenager in a couple of years even though I will miss him when he leaves home!

      Hi cute Dianna! Thank you so much for your kind words! I know exactly what you mean! One of my kids is allergic to (you won’t believe this): poultry and white fish. Yep, that’s chicken and turkey, tilapia, etc. It was a challenge to cook for him and I am happy to report that it is his precious wife’s problem now! (She makes a lot of pork!). Yes, you will miss him, but I know you will enjoy cooking exactly what you want! I was afraid we would go out to eat too much in the empty nest, so having a plan, the right tools, and some fun cookbooks has inspired me to cook at home! Thanks so much for commenting. xoxo Suzy

      Celia, Thanks for your comment! Isn’t the crock pot just the best? I love looking at the pictures in cookbooks too, but somehow my dishes never turn out as pretty! I have a great recipe for crock pot chicken and rice that I want to share on the blog, but when I made it, it did not look appetizing at all! (It was delish, BTW.) Not sure I will ever get to post it! Hugs to you! xoxo Suzy

      June, your comment made me laugh! I am so flat-chested that if I didn’t wear a bra it would be super sad! Usually I can squeeze some leftovers out of the meals for two if I make a big salad and we don’t eat big portions of the actual entree. My husband loves leftovers like you!!! Thanks for your comment and for reading! xoxo Suzy

    It must be a right of passage, I bought a slow cooker last year and am wondering why it took me so long to discover how handy and easy it is to plan meals! Thanks for all you thoughtful suggestions Suzy, by the way love your yellow shirt and necklace!

    Have a great day!

      Nancy, thank you for your sweet comment! That shirt is from last year so I couldn’t link it for y’all. (I do LOVE yellow!) I actually made the necklace at a girls night event we had at this cool place in Dallas called Beading Dreams. You sit around a big table and they help you create a piece of jewelry. (BTW, I needed A LOT of help because I am so not crafty!) I actually used that photo originally for a long-ago post I did on the importance of your gal pals in the empty nest season of life. I need to run it again, I’m thinking! Isn’t the crock pot just the best? I think my fave thing to do is just to throw chicken breasts in there with our favorite BBQ sauce and cook it on low for 4-6 hours. The chicken comes out juicy and my husband thinks I slaved away! Thank you so much for commenting and for reading Empty Nest Blessed. I hope you have a great week! xoxo Suzy

    We’ve been empty nesters almost 2 years now. Our grocery bill plummeted and we even lost weight! Without the boys throwing junk food in the buggy, I just don’t buy any. While I don’t have the smaller slow cooker, I do use my electric pressure cooker often. My husband and I started meal prepping a few months ago and that is awesome! Love your blog. Just started my own and hope one day to look as professional as you!

      Amy, I love it that you all lost weight without your kids around! That is fantastic!!! Yes, it IS cheaper without those kiddos around. I don’t have an electric pressure cooker, but would love to know what you make with yours. That would be something fun to try. Thank you for your kind words about my blog! I would love to visit yours. Would you leave me your website info so I can do that? xoxo Suzy
