To Die For Whole Chicken In A Crock Pot

I adapted this recipe from a few different recipes.  It's not an exact recipe; I use what I have on hand, and I don't measure when I cook.  Feel free to add more or less depending on what you have or your family's taste.  Since the prep work is done the night before, it takes almost no time to prepare this the day you cook it.  I like to make this whole chicken in the Crock Pot, but you could make bake it in the oven for a crispy outside. Ingredients One whole chicken (innards removed) 1/4 cup salt 1 tablespoon peppercorns 1/2 teaspoon paprika 1/2 to 1 teaspoon thyme Onion, chopped 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder Water Directions Fill a large sauce pan about 3/4 full of water.  Add salt, peppercorns, onion and spices.  Add whatever vegetables you have to make a broth.  I like to use carrots and celery, but it tastes great without them, too. Bring to a boil on high heat.  Reduce heat to medium, cover and let simmer for an hour.  Turn off heat and let cool

Vinyl POW MIA Flask

I made this flask for my husband for Christmas.  I found the image online and converted it to a SVG.  Unfortunately, I can't find the image right now, and the link is on my old laptop.  If I do find it, I will update this post with a link. I used Wall Pops from Home Depot for the vinyl.  It cuts in the Cricut perfectly and transfers great!  This was a very easy project and my 9-year-old completed it in about 10 minutes.  Shhhh...don't tell hubby that!
