Sunday dinner......& another awwwww moment

I haven't posted a recipe in a while ----- & since I'm such a crafting slacker lately -- I thought I would share what I made for dinner tonight.

BBQ chicken in the slow cooker, seasoned potatoes & buttery carrots. I'm not a fan of barbeque anything, but my kids love it so being the FAB mom I am I made it with them in mind. It was a hit --they loved it! I even had a small piece myself & lived to tell about it.

I know ---isn't the plate DIVINE?!?! Some of my best dinnerware, lol!! Yes I still give my kids their dinner on *sectioned plates*. I started doing it when they were little & just never switched over to *real people plates*. is the easy peasy recipe for the chicken:


9 chicken thighs (um, yes, I guess you could use ANY chicken part, lol. We love thighs!!)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1-1/2 cups BBQ sauce
1/2 cup honey
2 tsp prepared mustard
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/8-1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce

Sprinkle chicken with salt & pepper. Place on a broiler pan. Broil 4-5 inches from heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until juices run clear. Transfer to a 5 qt slow cooker.

In a small bowl, combine the BBQ sauce, honey, mustard, Worcestershire sauce & hot pepper sauce. Pour over chicken; stir to coat. Cover & cook on low for 4-5 hours.

So simple!! I don't make BBQ often so I don't know if this is a "standard" recipe. I wasn't sure about the honey -- but it turned out great according to my taste testers!

And for dessert......

Root beer floats! One with whipped cream, one without. I know, what is a float without whipped cream? But that's how he ordered it :)

I am also not a fan of root beer so I just had a bowl of vanilla ice cream. Yes I have boring taste buds!

So I know I just posted pictures of Elwood the other day, but I just had to share these too. He *loves* Michael -- he is always sitting either on him or right next to him. Here was the scenario this morning.....

He wasn't adjusting himself -- he was actually sitting like that. It was hard to get a good picture -- I think the light was too bright in the background -- but you get the idea of just how laid back this cat is!

Then he decided he needed to stretch out so he wedged himself in between Michael & the arm of the chair.....

He's looking a wee annoyed that I was taking a thousand shots of him. I think he was thinking "Good grief, just take the picture & get on with your day".

I'm telling you, this cat has it ROUGH!!!

I hope you had a terrific weekend. Monday tomorrow again already.....sigh.....
