Crockpot Enchilada Chicken Stew

Not only am I going to share the boring details of my life with you AND give you a great recipe but I am going to share some great random stuff too. It's your lucky day. You're welcome.

I love it when I wake up determined to do what I'm supposed to do. I'm in a great mood and feel like Wonder Woman.

I eat good things like.....

breakfast: scrambled egg with some bacon and salsa
 lunch: salad with chicken, caramelized onion and vinaigrette
 dinner: I put a bunch of stuff in a crockpot. The recipe called fro chopped onion but I used some of my caramelized onions instead. Don't you worry yourself over those yellow blobs. That's just butter. Mmmm.
 I went to get a secret procedure done (fine, it was eyelash extensions for my vain self) and when I came home later it was chicken ambrosia. Or Crockpot Enchilada Chicken stew. So darn good!! Holy moly, people. Please make this. It's low carb/paleo/delish. You want to go to the recipe right now. Plus I just adore the blog Paleomg.
 What I failed to mention is that on the way home from my lash blast, I had an "oh crap!" moment. I realized that it was brewery night at The Flying Saucer and one of my fave beers was the feature and you get to keep the glass!!!

So I sent out a text or two, Chuck left work early to accommodate me, and we sucked back dinner and went to the Saucer.
 I've mentioned it before but the Saucer has a club where the goal is to drink 200 beers and get a "saucer" (looks like a plate to me) put on the wall with your name on it. Why did I choose this as one of my life goals? Because I like easy goals where I won't be disappointed. I can't fail.
 We arrive and soon our friend Kyle shows up too. I hate myself for not getting a picture again. Why do I keep forgetting these things?!

Ahhhh. My flowery beer. Kyle was quick to point out the peeing boy on the glass and said the beer tasted like boy piss. I asked him how he knew. The conversation stopped there. And for the better, if you ask me. It tastes like flowers to me. Sweet, alcohol flavored flowers.
I should know better. Beer gives you the munchies. So we shared a few tots and soft pretzel. Darn you, beer! I won't be doing that for a while! (Btw, "while" is a relative statement.) I started the day with resolve that was melted away with a beer. Ugh. I hang my head in shame. Not really. I had a total blast!
I'm sore. My body hurts. My shoulders, arms, legs, and butt hurt. Squats and push ups are doing something magical to me. I LOVE it! Just not while I'm doing it.
So I got fifty shades of grey. I don't know what the big deal is about. It's not sexy at all. A little boring, actually. Maybe fifty shades of purple would be more fun.
This is a real place in Uvalde, TX. I know because I have stopped here. It's a beautiful thing. One stop shopping.
Today's soup of the day brought to you by sadness and stress. Enjoy responsibly. And if you can't do that, then just enjoy.
I was told this is lame but I disagree. What do you think?
I'm not one to brag about my financial skills, but my credit card company calls me almost every day to tell me my balance is outstanding.
And now for a masterpiece. I present to you the Bacon Bowl. Look upon it and marvel. Then eat it up.
Have yourself a great weekend. I'm heading out of town to see my folks. See ya back here Monday.


  1. The chicken looks great, but I would need to melt some cheese on there.

    Bacon bowls with Caesar salad...a marriage made in heaven!

    Have a great time away.

  2. I agree on the fifty shades. I bought the books because it is such a hype. I'm in book 3 now and am pretty bored by it. At this point I'm skipping the love scenes: too much of the same thing over and over again and read the parts of the story. For as far as you can talk about a story.If I didn't want to know how it's ending I would have stopped after book one.

    The bacon bowls: jummie!


I love comments. Tell me what's on your mind. :)
