Thank you for visiting! We are Amanda, Tiffany, Lauren H, Lauren F, Danielle, Lisa, Meagan, Teresa, Emily, Cassie, & Bea. We are a group of women ranging in age from 27-32. 2011 marks the 5th Fall season of us getting together weekly, on Thursdays, to make dinner for eachother, talk about our kids, marriages, jobs, weddings, homes, weekends and so on. We travel as far North as Kirkland and as far South as Graham to visit each week...that's a total of nearly an hour of driving (not counting traffic), so that should show you how dedicated we are to "the cause" of having some girl time each week. A few of us are mothers and have planned our weddings. Our group also includes a dietitian, wine distributor & a few teachers ranging from elementary to high school. We are here to share our favorite recipes, update you on our girl talk each week, answer questions from experience and review products for companies and share our takes on them for the women out there just like us. Please feel free to contact us with topics you'd like us to cover or questions you may have. Our group e-mail is ThursdayGirlsNights@gmail.com Thanks again, The Girls

Low-Fat Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken

Dinner at Meg's a few weeks back was extra yummy. We obviously love our Mexican food.  I forgot to take notes as to our non-stop witty banter so you can ad lib for us here :)

Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken was derived from www.SkinnyTaste.com (photo courtesy of a very popular blog, www.chef-in-training.com) Wow, how do we get to 5800 followers too? Not that it matters too much, we're seeing heavy traffic on our blog since Pinterest has come along. It's a win/win for sure. Here is your recipe...Delicious AND healthy!
