Clouds ~ Napa Fires ~ Slow Cooker Rice & Chicken ~ Mexican Word of the Day ~ Sausage Pizza Day

Good 32º wispy clouds morning. But more are moving in....

Early on yesterday it looked like it was raining on the top of my mountain...

By afternoon it was still cool, in the mid 60º's. I think we warmed to 70º or thereabouts. No rain. Dang.

Fires changing direction in Napa and thank goodness Linda and Andy's son's house is ok and so is their son Chris, who stayed with the house. All the property around him was burned. Said his house looks like an oasis now!  His wife and daughter went to stay with her brother and now his area is under evacuation orders.

Yesterday the excitement was over the top.... vacuuming, mopping, dusting. Zowie!

Super easy quick Slow Cooker Rice & Chicken:

1½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
2½ cups water
1 (10-3/4-ounce) can condensed broccoli cheese soup
1 medium-sized onion, finely chopped
2 cups broccoli florets (fresh or frozen)
2 (6-ounce) packages wild and long-grain converted rice mix with seasoning packets
2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
In a 4-quart (or larger) slow cooker, combine chicken, water, soup, and onion; mix well. Cover and cook on low setting for 4 hours.
Add broccoli and rice; cover and cook for an additional hour.
Stir in cheese and serve.
