Crockpot: Cheesy chicken, broccoli, & rice.

A very sweet friend of mine delivered her second baby boy on Tuesday, which I was able to photograph for her. She is a superstar, delivered him all natural, no epidural and looked amazing once he was delivered!

Our church blesses new moms by organizing a meal train to being them dinners every other night for the first two weeks after they bring the new baby home. I am bring her meal tonight, (and of course grabbing some newborn shots of new baby Dempsey while I am there). 

I had alot of work to do this morning, so I figured I would use my favorite kitchen tool, the crock pot, and prepare a double bath of dinner, so that both our dinner and hers would be ready at the same time. 

It's a bit cold here in MD today so I wanted something warm and cozy, basically that means it needed to have cheese, and carbs in the ingredients!!!
