The Great 2012 Cooking Extravaganza! Day 135

Hello again friends, and welcome back!  Hope you are having a Wonderful Wednesday!

I officially have my own territory and my own set of properties to manage, so today was cool!  Instead of trying to find things to do to help other people, I actually had my own stuff to do, and I was able to work out a schedule of sorts.  I still have a lot to learn, but I’m surrounded by a great group of people, and with one obvious exception, they are all ready and willing to help me.  All in all, it was a really good day!

William did the bike home bit today, called me when he got home like the good kid he can be.  No homework tonight, so he’s been goofing off all afternoon. Mike came home sick again, went  to the doctor, who has him on a liquid diet for today, then light stuff tomorrow.  Thinks he has some kind of intestinal virus.  I know he’s got to be tired of getting sick, seems like it happens an aweful lot!

James is off tonight, but he had to go to the clinic for his follow-up on his back.  Then he went over to the girlfriend’s place for a while, so he missed dinner.  Oh well, his loss.

Speaking of dinner, here’s tonight’s recipe:

Chicken Soft Tacos

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

2 quarts water

1 packet chicken Flavor Boost

4 Tbsp taco seasoning mix

Put all these into a crock pot, cook on LOW 8-10 hours.  Take out the chicken and shred it.  Put the shredded chicken into a large skillet, and add:

1 1/2 cups water

1/2 cup taco seasoning mix

Cook on medium until the sauce thickens a little.  It will all soak into the chicken, so you really only cook it about 5 minutes or so.

Serve with shredded cheese and soft tortillas, or you could use crunchy taco shells if you wanted. Top with whatever you like on your tacos, like lettuce, tomato, onions, ranch dressing, sour cream…  it’s up to YOU!

Leftover chicken is great in an enchilada bake the next night!!

So until tomorrow, eat well, love well, live well!
