My crockpot dinner was a complete disaster last night. I was attempting to make a slow cooker cilantro lime chicken dish, which I highlighted on Friday. However, I was on autopilot as I was reading the recipe. The recipe said to cook for 6 hours on low, and I turned it on before work around 6:30am, and came home to it at 4:30. In my defense, I’ve never had a crockpot recipe that didn’t call for 4-6 hours on high or 8-10 on low. I had charred, brown muck. It tasted good, but it was still mucky looking. To add insult to injury, I was taking care of Nico while preparing rice…and it burned on the bottom. I like having some body to my rice (which is why I use brown rice), but not quite the crunch I had yesterday. Buster, my dog, enjoyed it though.
To make myself feel better, I decided to make some iced coffee last night. I recalled the Pioneer Woman’s recipe for perfect iced coffee, so I decided to go with that. It turned out great. I highly suggest following her recipe for iced coffee. I’m feeling good, because while iced coffee is pretty cheap at Starbucks, it becomes a bit more expensive with the double chocolate brownie I get each time I go there. Saving my wallet and my body some damage. Win!
Oh well. Sorry for the lack-o-blog. Tomorrow, I will share my baby food adventures, and on Thursday I share a recipe using items from my weekly CSA box. I scarfed down 2 beautiful oranges last night from the box (for dinner, since I burned up my intended dinner), so hopefully I have some food left to blog about.
