Who Knew....

So, good [southern] cooking runs in my family. Lets just say...pretty much every single female in my family can cook a delicious meal. I always thought I just didn't get that gene. The truth: I never tried. 

Lately, I have been trying new "food creations" via pinterest along with recipes from family. I'm pretty darn proud of myself. The hubby is pretty happy too! OH, and I LOVE the crockpot. I work 10 hour days so it's my new BFF. 

Tonight, we had crockpot chicken tacos.
I cut the recipe in half since there are only 2 of us. It cooked a little bit longer than 6 hours on low but I think it made it even better. That chicken was so dang tender!! I whipped up some guacamole (nothing fancy...just smash an avocado, squeeze 1/2 lime and sprinkle some salt & pepper...mix together).  Topped with your favorites. YUM!!

This Weeks Menu: 

Monday Night: Steak and Lemon Lover's Asparagus
