My Little Monster Monday and a Recipe

(This is not my child, but the idea has merit.)

I just had to share what my weekend was like with my little monster. Now, I remind you again, I love my children, but one of them is testing my patience so much that I am thinking of duct taping him to the walls.

*Used a pen and colored all over our electric bill. I really hope the person that opens it has a sense of humor.
*Ate a heart shaped bead. No hesitation, no regrets, just popped it in like a candy.
*Colored on the walls with chalk. Luckily, after finding the last "artistic display" I hid all the markers from him, so chalk was all he could find.
*Covered our entertainment center, ottoman, and movie tower with an entire bottle of aerosol hair spray. Apparently, the frizz needed to be controlled on our furniture.
*Opened my face moisturizer/primer tube and squeezed it all over the bathroom floor, his head, hands and shirt. He has a wonderful white patch on his hair that makes him look like the kid on "The Sixth Sense".

So that is why I didn't get much done this weekend, as I had to chase and clean up after a little man who has taken it upon himself to throw my diet out the window as I need chocolate and chips to steady my nerves.

Now, onto the recipe.
When I was pregnant with my son, I worked in an office that was across the street from a Starbucks and this bbq place called Smoky Joe's. It was HEAVEN!!!! They made great money from me as I would order their Pulled Pork and Pulled Chicken sandwiches. It came with a side of coleslaw and a piece of warm corn bread. AMAZING!!! Unfortunately, it went out of business after my son was born... hmmmm, maybe it would have stayed in business longer if I had the gestational period of an elephant (which is 18 months.) Any hoo, I have been searching for a replacement for those sandwiches and have not found anything that came close. Well, here it is! SO GOOD!!!! Plus it is so dang easy to make, your mother-in-law will think you are a culinary genius!

Crock Pot Pulled BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

3-4 Frozen Chicken Breasts (I used 3 really big ones, but if yours are small, add more.)
1 Regular sized bottle of BBQ Sauce of your choice (I have used a few different flavors now and it always tastes good!)
Juice from 1 Orange

Dump all items into your crock pot. Doesn't need to be pretty.
Cook on Low for 8 hours or on High for 4.
After it's done cooking take two forks and shred your chicken up in the crock pot.
Serve on a toasted Hoagie bun and top with a slice of cheese (we used Havarti as it's what we had on hand, but anything would work.) Enjoy!

SEE?!!!! Stupid easy and I kid you not it is the best sandwich ever!!!!!!

  1. Wow! What a weekend! I sure hope you'll be less busy this week. I love pulled chicken sandwiches - I'm going to have to try to add orange next time I make them, thanks for the idea!
