I have to admit…I’ve been really spoiled.
My daughter has made dinner almost every night for the past eight years. But now she is working full time and has a busy social calendar, so if dinner is going to happen, it’s up to me.
After I had a short pity party for myself, I pulled out my trusty old crock pot: the one that got me through the early years of homeschooling.
I love this crock pot.
Once I saw it, I actually got excited about preparing dinner again. And I happened to run across a friend’s pin on Pinterest (thanks, Sue!) featuring chicken tacos.
It’s really simple, and calls for just three ingredients:
You can find the original recipe here.
It honestly took less than five minutes to put the ingredients in the crock pot, give it a stir, and turn the dial to low. I got it started at 7:00 this morning, and when I came home tonight, there was delicious chicken taco filling waiting. A quick stir with a fork, and the chicken shredded perfectly.
We had friends over, and we all built our own tacos, adding our favorite combination of sour cream, lettuce, avocado, and cheese.
My son announced that he could eat this for dinner every night.
So, what do you do when you know you won’t have time to make dinner?
