OK...as fun as Purple Prose Thursday was, it was a lot of work. I never seemed to be in the right frame of mind to come up with something good.
So, I'm going to try something new. For months now I've been using my crock pot to cook not all, but most of our meals. Those who swing through the jungle probably remember Janelle blogging about this on Monday.
I'm right there with her. I despise cooking. I have a floorcloth that says, "I kiss better than I cook." But I also like to eat. As does my family. So I use the crockpot more than anything else.
In place of Purple Prose on Thursays, let's do a recipe swap. I'll post something simple. And believe me, if I know how to fix it, it will be simple. And you guys can share some of your favorites if you like.
I shared this recipe on Janelle's blog on Monday, so I'm sorry it's a repeat for some of you, but it's 9:45 on Wednesday night and at this point it's the best I can do.
4 Chicken Breasts
1 Jar of your favorite salsa
Put chicken in the crock pot. Pour salsa over top. Turn on low and cook all day. When you come home you can pull the chicken apart and use it for tacos or fajitas. Add a box of Spanish rice or a can of refried beans and you're good to go.
It's very simple and very yummy.
If you work a regular M-F workweek, only 1 more "get-up." Yay! Hope it's a great day for everyone.
Peace and Love,
