This is the third crockpot I’ve blogged about and I’ve learned something… there is no way to take a flattering photo of a crockpot recipe.
No matter how delicious the recipe is (and this one is quite tasty), a picture of a pile of saucy shredded chicken just can’t look pretty, especially when the sauce is brown and chunky…. Anyways, back to the point, this delicious crockpot recipe!
This idea came to me as I was wandering the aisles of Trader Joe’s. I’m lucky enough to have a Trader Joe’s on the main level of the office building I work in, but I’m unlucky because (unlike some people who spend all their money on makeup or fashion) I tend to spend it all at the grocery store. Hey, they do have a darn good wine selection if you ask me!
Anyways, back to the point of this blog. I turned the corner of one of the aisles and found a wall stacked high of this tasty devil…
Two days ago was a snow day (this Florida girl is still getting used to this concept)! With the snow came a strong desire to cook… since I was stuck indoors all day alone and bored out of my mind. Problem though, with inches of snow on the ground, I couldn’t make it to the grocery store.
After ten minutes of staring blankly into my fridge and cabinets, the perfect concoction came together! I found a way to turn three ingredients into a simple, edible crock pot dish. It filled my apartment with a warm, delicious smell that made me (just for a moment) forget about the arctic tundra outdoors.
