an apartment full of the cutest girls invited me and my roommates over for dinner.
That is when I was introduced to Santa Fe Chicken.
It is by far my favorite, most delicious and EASIEST crock pot meals.
I make it all the time.
In fact, I'm making it right now.
Santa Fe Chicken:
5 or so chicken breasts
(Since I'm poor I never use that much chicken)
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
2 cans corn
1 cup (or more) of salsa
*1 8 oz. package cream cheese
Cook all except the cream cheese in a crock pot for several hrs until chicken is done. Remove chicken and cut up (I shred it right in the crock pot). Add the 8 oz. cream cheese ( cut up, or pulled apart) to crock pot mixture. Return the chicken to the crock pot and heat until cream cheese melts. Serve over rice
Libby had talked all week about going to the Homecoming Parade and eating free blue pancakes before the parade started. I love free food and, besides, parades are super cool. The problem with this idea is that I decided to take Libby out on a date, making her miss out on her homework. After dinner, we went home and watched tv. Libby missed another opportunity to do her homework and study for her upcoming tests, and instead, stayed up way past our bedtime watching the Game Show Network.
We slept in...the parade had started, meaning that we had missed the opportunity to eat free blue pancakes. How is a husband supposed to do anything right?! So, I left her in bed, got dressed, and made some of my own blue pancake batter.
This actually turned out really well. I heard some rustling in the bed across the hall. And here it comes. The same surprised face from a couple weeks ago. They were hot off the grill at that point and Libby was so happy that she was getting her blue pancakes without even leaving the house.
