1.BBQ Pineapple chicken (in the crock pot)
I put in enough chicken for my family (6 chicken tenders).
I placed the chicken in the crock pot.
I opened a new bottle of bbq sauce and put in enough to cover all the chicken.
I dumped in the entire can of pineapple chunks (liquid too). I used a 20oz can of pineapple chunks.
Cooked on low for 4-5 hours.
The sides are white rice and garlic pepper green beans.
2. Chocolate chocolate trifle
Elizabeth and I made a chocolate cake in the morning. We used a Betty Crocker cake mix and followed the recipe on the box.
Once the cake was completely cooled, we made the chocolate pudding.
I used 2 small boxes of instant chocolate pudding. I made the pudding according to the recipe on the box.
The third layer is cool whip (I used two 9oz containers).
The bottom layer is cake, I cut up pieces of cake and placed them into the bottom of the trifle bowl until the bottom was covered in cake.
The next layer is chocolate pudding. I spooned it into the dish until all of the cake was covered in chocolate pudding.
The next layer is cool whip. I spooned it into the dish until all of the pudding was covered in cool whip.
I repeated these steps one more time.
3. Strawberry Banana Smoothie
Ben got me this very fancy blender for my birthday and I finally used it. :)
Banana, strawberries, yogurt, and milk- so easy!
This recipe comes from 500 smoothies and juices. I made this as a snack for the girls, but it would be great for breakfast too!
1 banana peeled and quartered
1 cup strawberries, hulled (I used frozen strawberries and they worked great)
1/ 2 cup plain low-fat yogurt (I used vanilla and it tasted great)
1/4 cup milk
Put all ingredients in a blender. Blend for 1 minute or until smooth.
I used this recipe to make our beef stew. The only thing I didn't add was the celery.
And... Happy Wednesday y'all!
