Recipe #15: Crockpot BBQ Beer Chicken
This has been my favorite go-to chicken recipe previously, but I’d thought I’d try this new one to switch it up. I used the *Hot* Bone-Suckin’ sauce they recommend, which I’ve never used on its own before. Overall, the chicken was juicy and flavorful, but to me, the sauce made it a little too sweet. Once I balanced it out in salads or tacos with some fresh/tart additions (lime, shredded cabbage, tomatoes) it still disappeared pretty quickly from the fridge.
Also note: I cut the recipe in half, and it still made enough for about 4 meals for two people.
Verdict: Eh, overall. Would make again out of the convenience factor, but maybe try it with a different bbq sauce base.
Having many, many school thank you notes to write was the perfect excuse to update my stationary collection at Target.
Happy Father’s Day to both my dad and my papa, two of the most hardworking, upstanding, loving, and funny men I could be lucky enough to have in my life.
I love you both!
One of my favorite Bar Method instructors is moving and today was her last day of teaching. I think she was okay with killing us all.
No joke, the class was so hard I had to pause in the middle because I thought I may vomit.
If you need me for the rest of the day, I will be immobile in a chair on the roof.
The beginning of “Up” never fails to make me cry. To me, it is one of the most touching love stories, told mostly without words and in 15 minutes.
I hate saying good bye.

We put this song in our end-of-year slideshow, and it is a sentiment that I really feel for my students.
Recipe #14: Buffalo Roasted Cauliflower
The perfect easy side for the turkey burgers I cooked last week. Don’t get me wrong, they are not going to take the place of buffalo wings permanently, but they’ll definitely be added to my veggie repertoire!
This photo shoot a photographer mother did of her 5-year-old daughter dressed up as inspirational women in history made me smile on this rainy Monday.
