An Easy Favorite

Every time I make a meal in the crockpot my love for that little appliance grows more and more.

Tonight’s meal was an easy favorite. Salsa chicken!

The pulled salsa chicken was served bowl-style with some steamed veggies, including broccoli, carrots, sugar snap peas and water chestnuts.

Off to watch The Bachelor and then cuddle up with Mockingjay. Hopefully the book won’t be as intense as it was last night and I’ll sleep a little better…

        Do you think you could edit my essay? I know you write a lot. Honestly I think its pretty good already I already had 3 people edit it and then my dad. So I just need some extra filling to put in it. Maybe like one or two sentences but I have NO idea what to add. its only 3 pages double-spaced. Would you mind editing it between now and tomorrow?

        It could really just use another pair of eyes by someone who understands it and could give a couple sentences of input and i thought of you since you write a lot!

    I thought for sure you would have made something with peanut butter for dinner today!! Have you ever tossed your cooked chicken (think fajita strip size) with natty PB & hot sauce? It’s like a chicken satay!! Sounds crazy, but if you play with your mix before throwing it on the chicken, it can be very tasty!!

    Salsa chicken is so good! I love cooking in the crockpot. It is definitely one of my favorite kitchen appliances. It makes cooking so easy after a long day of work. I love how tender it makes chicken, or any kind of meat. :)

    Salsa chicken has become one of my new favorites. I try and mix it up by using different kinds of salsa. I just made some with a chipotle peach salsa and it was a delicious twist!
