I woke up at 3:30am to put all of my ingredients into the crockpot so that the chicken breasts, which were straight from the freezer, would be cooked by noon. Turns out my crockpot doesn’t hold nearly as much chicken, especially when frozen, as I had hoped. Another problem with this sort of crockpot cooking is that the meat tends to fall apart, making for a far less pleasurable meal.
Today’s menu consists of:
- new potatoes
- chicken stuffing (from a box!)
- green beans (from the massive can I mentioned yesterday)
- cranberry jelly, complete with can markings
I’m sure things will taste good, perhaps a bit on the dry side knowing my experiences with skinless, boneless, chicken breasts. Only time will tell.
One of these days I’d like to get back into the habit of cooking in a kitchen so that I don’t have the concerns of trying to get everything into a single pot.
Last night was a typical night for me these days. I drove down to Colony Square for my German A1.2 class at the Goethe Zentrum, headed home to do work (of which I did none), and spoke to my mother on the phone for about a half hour before heading off to bed.
Thankfully my agenda for tonight is clear, which means that I’ll probably be working later than I desire. I should also probably gather all of the camping/LEAF things I want to pack into the Jackmobile on Friday morning (yes, I’m going to risk driving the Jackmobile to North Carolina), since I will be attending a show in midtown tomorrow night. Might I add, you all missed a fine show last Saturday night at Terminal West, you may want to consider coming out to The Loft tomorrow night for the Courtney Barnett show; it’ll be 180° from last Saturday night but entertaining nonetheless.
All for now…
