Dinner Dilemmas

Yesterday I pulled a ziploc baggie out of our freezer with two big pieces of chicken in it. I stashed it in the fridge to thaw.

By today I realized I had to make something with it. Out came the trusty crockpot. As I've mentioned before, I love cooking in my crockpot. What did I do with the chicken? Most of the time I create the recipe on the spot. Tonight was no exception. I guess I enjoy the challenge.

There were two whole leg/thigh pieces and I tossed them in. I grabbed a bottle of barbecue sauce and threw that on top. (Not the bottle itself, just the sauce. LOL) I almost stopped there but decided it was too strong and needed something else. I decided honey would compliment the sauce and threw that in. Next I boiled a chicken bouillon cube in 1 cup of water and voila...I had chicken broth to toss into the mixture. Cooked it on low for about 4 hours. Well, I have to was a delicious sauce and the chicken was so good it "melted in your mouth."

Another successful crockpot night and I wanted to share it with you.

Plus I've also already made my Ice Cream Potato Salad this year! I usually wait until Memorial Day to kick off "potato salad season," but this year I was so thrilled about the arrival of spring it couldn't wait.

I'd love to hear what you like to make for dinner during the week. Maybe I'll start a dinner post and have gals link to my blog. What could I call it? Something like "Dinner Dilemma Wednesday" or "Mouth Watering Monday?"

Let me know if you like the idea or have any thoughts on what to name it. I just might do it.

I wonder...what is ice-cream potatoe salad?? potatoes with sweet vanilla or chocolate ice-cream...for me this would sound weird^^

so i am back at home from our first medieval camp, it was the best and nicest camp ever :)

well for dinner we have there receipes made without: potatoes, tomatos, corn, or else because we haven't had those vegetables in Europe before Columbus discovered 1492 ;-)
well we had a delicious BBQ with green salad on Friday, yesterday we had goulash with coleslaw (without carrot)(there was much cabbage in the medieval time ;-)) and bread. For today we wanted to make semolina pudding, but we had again a BBQ^^

You really made the chicken sound good and I don't even like dark meat.
