Skinny Orange Sesame Crock Pot Shredded Chicken

No comments:

I've survived 16 winters in the South, now.  And I'm not sure if I'm just getting more and more used to them, or if they're getting milder each and every year.

Now, don't get me wrong, we still get a few big "milk and bread" storms.  But, Old Man Winter's been fooling us these last few years, completely bypassing the holidays (when snow would be much more appreciated, thank you very much).  And instead, hitting us up in February... at least when it comes to snow.  

So, today is one of those days where the fluffy white snow blankets the entire city, and my beloved cardinals, (whom have come to be known as Penelope, for the females and Raphael, for the males) line the snow-capped trees.  Waiting for their turn to swoop down to our feeders to stock up.  Similar to the lines of people trying to get through the checkout yesterday at my local Harris Teeter.  You see, in the South, when a big one's about to hit, you'll know it's really serious when folks are swooping in on the milk and bread aisles to stock up.  Well those, and the frozen pizza and beer aisles.  One can never be too prepared.

And because I can always use more ideas on creative ways to roast vegetables.  Plus, recipes I can use them in, I asked for help from my blogging friends.

PopSugar Must Have Box February 2015- Review

No comments:

I'm a girly girl, through and through... so it's no wonder that I get especially excited each year as Valentine's Day rolls around.  Roses, chocolate, and all things pink... yes, I proudly love it all.

And while I'm pretty easy to please, this month's PopSugar Must Have Box seems like it was picked especially for me.  This is my fourth box from them, but I've been watching YouTube unboxings and reading reviews for over a year now.  And I can confidently say that is by far my favorite box.  So I decided to try out the products and give you a review.
