Home Cooking

I put three large, boneless, skinless chicken breast halves in the shallow crock pot insert and seasoned them with salt and pepper. Then I topped them with sliced garlic cloves and a sliced medium red onion and poured BBQ sauce over the top and set the crock pot on low overnight.

After breakfast I turned off the crock pot and shredded the chicken breasts right there in the pot, let it all cool and put it in a Rubbermaid container in the fridge until we’re ready for BBQ chicken sandwiches.

Later: I forgot the hamburger buns yesterday when we were in town so when Brad saw the finished BBQ chicken he headed to town for the buns and to get the mail.

I’ll work on getting better photos of food on the plate next time. I may need some pointers from my daughter…

The pickled onions were a perfect garnish for the BBQ chicken and the pickled cucumber and pasta salad made good sides. We are both stuffed. Brad went back for a second sandwich. We might need naps later.

All of the utility companies have been out to mark lines or label the ground clear for digging the propane line next week. I need to take a photo that shows the flags marking the phone line and where the propane line will be so I can upload it to the laptop and save it off my camera.

Our Terminex guy came out to spray around the house and the shop this morning so we are caught up with our pest control. He wrote a ticket for someone to come out and replace the termite bait station that Webb Electric had to pull up in order to lay electrical cable for the Generac.

Today is our son-in-law’s birthday. David works so hard and it’s not unusual for him to work six days a week. We picked up a gift card for him when we stopped at Cabela’s a couple of weeks ago. That way he can go shopping for something for himself.

It’s time to clean up the kitchen and get back to my knitting. Have a blessed Friday ya’ll.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
