Yummy Salisbury Meatballs and Mashed Potatoes

Yummy Salisbury meatballs and mashed potatoes

Good morning everyone, how are you? I am having a great day here in Missouri, I’m siting outside with my friend Sonny who brought me some garden veggie today, which I will use in a meal this coming  week or weekend.

He is such a sweet older black man who came from Mississippi and I love to hear his stories about his life growing up there. He loves my cooking as I usually save him my left overs if I have any instead of sending them to work with hubby the next day if I know he’s going to be down for the day. I also will cook him breakfast here and there while he works out in the neighborhood. He always asks me “what ya cooking today mama” and when I tell him he says man my mouth is watering…lol

Well I told him today I’m making these Salisbury Meatballs and Mashed Potatoes which is so yummy and the gravy was SO delicious!  He of course was like save me some mama I’ll be back tomorrow. And of course I will as I love to cook for people and see them eat.

OK on to the recipe. This is a very tasty comfort food, and it will make you feel full and lazy afterwards, but I love making it as my kids would eat this like it it was going out of style. My mama taught me this when I was growing up and my  family loved it. Hope you enjoy it.

Be sure to bookmark this page and share it with your friends. Have a great day see you tomorrow.

Enter My Free Give Away For My New Launched Cosmetic Site

I’m very excited to finally have finished my cosmetics site “Influencing Cosmetics” and decided to do a free give away to get it off and kicking. If it does well will consider doing them at least once a month and even more as things get kicked off. We all like getting freebies right? I know I do.

We  love makeup as it makes us feel better about ourselves, inside and out. With me being all about wellness and beauty, I know how important it can be for me to feel beautiful and healthy. With mental health problems getting up each day and putting on makeup is such a struggle, but once I have it on I begin to transform into a total different person. I become more confident about myself and feel as if I can face the world no matter what it throws at me.  So on to my free give away. Good luck. Be sure to share this with your friends on social media so they can enter to.

Yummy Crock Pot Chicken and Stuffing

Yummy Crock Pot Chicken and Stuffing

Yummy Crock Pot Chicken and Stuffing  is by far one of my favorite meals to cook. I love the moist chicken and stuffing together along  with the savory taste of the vegetables. I love-making this meal best in the fall as it gets me in the mood for  the holidays. The flavor of the chicken and stuffing reminds me that my favorite holiday thanksgiving is around the corner.
Today I’m going to decorate the house with fall colors and this meal will be appropriate for the occasion. The smell of  the meal coming from the crock pot already cooking since this morning is making me so hungry. Can’t wait for hubby to get home this evening so we can eat.
Be sure to bookmark this page as your gonna love this meal when you make it, and share it with your friends on social media. Have a great day.
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, salted and peppered if desired.
  • 1 teaspoon dry parsley
  • 10.5 oz. cream of chicken soup
  • 8 oz. sour cream, (equivalent to 1 cup)
  • 6 oz. box stuffing mix
  • ¾ cup chicken broth
  • 2 cups green beans, fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup baby carrots
Optional stuffing additions:
  • 1/2 cup onions, diced
  • 1/2 cup celery, diced
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup crumbled sausage, (cooked or raw)
  • 2 teaspoons dry rosemary
  1. Place the chicken on the bottom of the crock pot and sprinkle with salt and pepper if desired.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the soup, sour cream, stuffing, and half of the broth. Layer the stuffing mix over the chicken.
  3. To keep the vegetables separate from the stuffing, place a layer of foil over the stuffing, then place your vegetables on top of the foil.  Poke holes on the bottom of the foil to allow the moisture to circulate instead of collecting on the top of the foil.  You can also layer the vegetables right on top of the stuffing if you’d prefer.

  4. Cook on high for 4 hours, or on low for 6-7.
  5. Before eating, check on the stuffing. If you’d prefer additional moisture, add the rest of the chicken broth, stir, and heat for an additional 10 minutes.

EVXO’s Natural Coverage Liquid Mineral Foundation Makeup Review

Got my EVXO foundation in the mail Friday and used it Sunday when I went to church and feel in love with it. I mean wow, it’s one of the best foundations I have ever used to date. It looked a little dark at first till I applied it but it matched my skin perfect. I was worried I had gotten the wrong color I had ordered, but turns out it went on good using a beauty blender.

This foundation somehow made me skin look flawless being my age, and it still looks healthy, warm and even. Today my skin even feels healthier though I don’t have it on. The price is affordable and I really am glad for this product and highly recommend it to anyone who uses foundation. I think this is going to be my new favorite.
