Crockpot ‘Best Chicken You’ll Ever Have’

I love daylight savings time. I love when it stays light later into the evening and on the other side, I love when it gets light earlier in the morning. I wasn’t thinking this love would last once we had Gabs, since I heard that kids don’t adjust quite as smoothly as adults (who don’t always adjust so swimmingly either..) but she must have the same love as I do, because she’s still sleeping the same! I think it’s because she was sick during the time change, so she wasn’t sleeping normally anyway.

All she wanted to do was lay on the couch and cuddle with Violet- it was sadly adorable.

Either way, we’re adjusted, back to healthy and luuurvin’ it.

So, even though there’s more daylight in the evenings now, that doesn’t always mean you want to spend more time on dinner. I found this recipe online, and though it may not be healthy- IT IS MY FAVORITE. I’m getting used to taking pictures of my recipes again, so if you want to be sold on the recipe, visit the original site and don’t be repulsed by my gross ones!

These are the leftovers on a sandwich. We had it by itself for dinner the night before, but ate it too fast to take pictures.

You must make it and watch your family devour it before your very eyes (even the picky ones) and then proclaim their undying love for you afterwards.

Then the next day, put the leftovers in a sandwich and hear it all over again.

Meanwhile, you’re just excited because you spent literally $1.54 per serving and 4 minutes in prep time (that’s being generous.)

Joey and I have a friend from college who told us about what his mom would do each evening at dinner. She’d serve a wonderful meal to her family of all boys- and tell them how much each serving cost to make while serving it. It became almost a fun game to see how delicious/cheap she could make her meals- and a great way to keep yourself in check when planning meals!

~Enjoy! M

P.S. yeah, it’s not healthy or technically low in fat. BUT. Whenever I make a meal that might not be waist-friendly, I just serve my portion over a big handful of chopped romaine. Honestly, I’ve found that pretty much any dinner tastes good over crunchy lettuce.

Bourbon Street Chicken

20130531-112150.jpg

Good morning! This post is being written from my iPhone, because we have been experiencing technical difficulties as of late with our Internet. Hence, hardly any posts from me this week! I am up to my ears in frustration with anything computer related these past few days- I decided to finally back up all my pictures since 2007 because my laptop is on its last legs and every picture I’ve ever taken is on that computer.

35,000 pictures later…. I’m ready to pull my hair out! 35,000!? That’s roughly 5,000 pics a year?! In my defense, I went to college, Europe, got married, started a blog, went to Israel, other vacations/weddings, and had a baby in those years… But still. That would account for MAYBE 1/8 of those pics.

The shame… So I’ve spent hours mass-deleting ridiculous pictures that my ‘teen self’ thought necessary to take.

I’ve vowed never to take another stupid picture. Only super cute ones like this.

In the midst of all this, our Internet went down! Ayiyi.

In an effort to maintain positivity, my little sis is here for the weekend and we have decided to not watch tv all weekend and busy ourselves by being outside and cooking delicious food.

I saw this recipe on Pinterest and one look at the picture already had me drooling and fumbling for the ingredients- it’s called Bourbon Street Chicken, but there’s no bourbon in the recipe. It’s an easy peasy crockpot dinner, probably our new favorite!

I served this tangy chicken over some white rice with grilled zucchini on the side- and drizzled the leftover juice on the zucch’s as well. Click here for the recipe!

This… Was a winner.

I only took two pictures of this… You know why 🙂
