my new favorite chicken

I recently discovered a new slow cooker chicken dish and I have to share it.

I feel like maybe I'm the last to know about this recipe and that is OK, but I know one of the four people who read my blog will not have eaten this, so I'm sharing!!

You need:

2 cups of water
One packet of taco seasoning
One packet of ranch seasoning

I used 8 boneless skinless chicken tenders, but you can also use boneless skinless chicken breasts.

Place the chicken in the slow cooker.  In a separate bowl mix all the other ingredients and pour over the chicken.  Cook on low for 4 hours or until chicken is done!

I cook the chicken and shred it, but you don't have to.  You can eat whole chicken breasts cooked in this mixture.  It's just so good. The possibilities are endless!

We ate Whataburger and when we got to my parents house mom made fresh salsa, rice crispy treats, jalapeno ranch and pimento cheese!

My parents made homemade cheesecake icecream.  I was in heaven!!!!

Pineapple wrapped in bacon say what??!?!

Happy Spring Break!

family game night

I have to be honest.  I don't like the toddler games we have played in years past.  Candyland and Shutes n Ladders get old fast, because I think the kids cheat.  These cames don't challege us and then I get bored.  I'm competitive and want to play more challenging games. Heck,  I'm even tired of HeadBands.  

Gary and I decided to introduce the kids to dominos.  Hayden loves couting and he has been begging to play dominos again since we first played.  We had a blast playing Jenga.  I'm ready to teach the kids Hearts and Spades too!

He's so serious, but then the tower fell.....

And then we started all over again!

What are your favorite 'bigger' family games?
