Yesterday before I left for work in the morning I threw together part of dinner: BBQ Pulled Chicken. (I make Pulled Pork the same way, but read Courtney's recipe for Chicken and thought it would be a fantastic idea, although I still made it my own way.) I threw the following in my mini-crock pot:
3 Boneless, Skinless chicken thighs
2 cups of water
2 Beef Bullion Cubes
1 Onion, chopped
lil gem. As it is re-cooking (or whatever) I periodically scoop some of the reserved liquid back into the crock pot, but not too much because I hate when the meat comes out watery. I just kept the pulled chicken in the crock pot until we were ready to eat... and WOW did 3 chicken thighs make a lot of pulled chicken! I was surprised, it doesn't look like much but we have more than enough leftovers for lunch today.
On the side I also made mac and cheese, (1/2 with Panko crumbs) and a side of roasted sprouts. yumm! I sorta just winged the recipe for M & cheese... a lil butter and flour, milk and cheese... and out of my 10,000 boxes of pasta in my cupboards (no lie) I didn't have ONE box of elbows!
Since dinner was pretty much done, I had a nice, relaxing night spent with the fam, furry friends and all:
|Prettiest kindergartener everrrr!|
|Pajamas went on early last night!|
Yeah, I have to kinda force myself to eat yogurt, its something I never really enjoyed, and i mix in the Special K to make it not remind me of baby food... Granola is much tastier than Special K, but since I bought it I will eat it! I also cut up tons of veggies in the a.m. to snack on all day, because I am a devoted chip lover, and the veggies allow me to eat a never-ending portion while satisfying my crunch desire :)
I kinda figure the healthier I eat, the more food I can eat...it does work that way, doesn't it?! (Plus, I'm sure veggies cancelled out my ginormous Rice Crispy treat and 2 snickers bars I scarfed down yesterday....)
This pregnancy I'm trying to not gain 60 lbs!! So far I'm at 13 lbs....and counting...
C'mon 6 lb baby and 2 hour delivery!!!!!!!!! (Please keep your fingers crossed!!!!!) (I'm sure this can happen!!)
