Aside from Buddy's birthday and the activities therein, it's been a pretty dull weekend. I got a call this evening from a good friend and she lamented that she was also bored out of her skull. I asked her if she'd like to go to Kroger. Well, you would think I'd just asked her if she wanted a million dollars.
Pretty sad when you get a thrill from a trip to the grocery store. But, my friend and I are middle aged moms and well, that sort of thing offers the same thrill as, say, a keg party when you're in college. We discussed lunch meats and mascara. It was all very exciting.
I woke up this morning slightly before 6 am, without the benefit of an alarm. I just "woke up" which was good because I had to get dinner in the crock pot. I threw that together and got back in bed until Sissy woke up around 8 am.
Crockpot Chicken Tortillas
4 (or how many ever) boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
1 jar/can of picante or salsa (whatever heat you like)
1 pkg of dry taco seasoning
Put chicken in crock pot. Add taco seasoning to salsa and pour over chicken. Set to high and cook for 8 hours. Shred and use in tortillas, enchiladas, etc. It's good with tomato, lettuce, frijoles, sour cream, cheese, black beans, black olives, etc. Dress to fit your tastes. Yummy.
The worst thing about this recipe was having to smell it cooking all day and wanting to dive headlong into the crock pot to eat it all.
This was a hit with my whole family - including Sissy who is notoriously picky with food. The best part is that there is enough left over for lunches the next couple of days! Mmmmmmmm.
