Lazy Look, Lazy Cook

La mode: I did a mental checklist of the things I did yesterday, and I have come to the realization that I have nothing interesting to talk about. So, I can either talk about something uninteresting (such as the number of “before school starts” to-do lists I’ve made recently) or I can just shut up and show you my clothes.


Blouse: Loft; shorts: Loft; belt: Target; wedges: Old Navy

For your sanity, I’ve chosen the latter. You’re welcome.


However, I do want to give a quick thank you to Claire from Spinning Threads. She passed along a “best blog” award to me! You should check her out—she’s the stylish mom of two adorable little girls and she’s got a knack for finding awesome deals (like Target/designer collaboration pieces for $10!). Thank you Claire!

La nourriture:  I suppose yesterday wasn’t completely uninteresting; I did eat dinner. And to me, food is always worth talking about. I let my Crock Pot do the heavy lifting, and it helped me make Brown Sugar Chipotle Chicken from the Can You Stay for Dinner? blog.


Other than throwing the ingredients in the blender (except the chicken…ew), then the slow cooker, the only effort I put into this meal was toasting a couple of hoagie rolls once the chicken finished cooking. The meat was ridiculously tender and shredded easily with two forks.


I made sandwiches but I imagine there are numerous ways to use the smoky, spicy chicken. Next time I might try it as a filling for quesadillas or even enchiladas. I might not even wait that long—I have some leftovers in the fridge!
