Slow Cooker BBQ chicken sandwiches

4 BLSL chicken breasts
1 12 oz bottle of good BBQ sauce
1/2 cup of Italian Dressing
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1 tsp garlic powder
6 Hamburger buns
Pickles
6 slices of cheese

Add Chicken, BBQ, dressing, brown sugar and garlic powder in the crock pot.  With a Liner! You use a crock pot because it makes preparing the meal easy....it's not easy if you have to scrub the damn thing all night.  Go get liners.  Right now.

I cooked on high for 4 hours and it came out perfect.  Shredd and set back in sauce.

Toast the buns and top with chicken, cheese and pickles.  I love bread and butter pickles, but you use whatever you like.

We really enjoyed this.  Simple, easy and was great for lunch the next day!

Potato Scramble

Happy Saturday Morning!  My husband is rather cranky this morning and now he and my neighbor are mowing the lawn.  I am here alone, all peaceful and starving!

Nothing here that is going to set the world on fire or be featured in Bon Apetit magazine, but it was tasty.

1 left over baked potato (or cook one real quick, I'm not waiting.  You can catch up later)
Sprinkle of Cajun seasoning, I use Badia
Salt and Pepper
2 Eggs
4 strips of bacon, crumbled (Make 6, ur going to eat 2)
Pinch of cheese

Now grab your handle dandy, most favorite pan and put that bad boy on high heat.

I just baked some bacon for something else in the oven so I had the left over bacon grease.  If not, use butter or a little oil, whatever tickles your fancy.

Scoop potato flesh out of the skin and plop in the pan and allow to brown.  Break up the potato with your spoon into big chunks. Sprinkle cajun seasoning. When potato is mostly browned, scoot to one side.

Add 2 eggs to the other side of the pan and scramble.  Once eggs are cooked, stir in with the potatoes and salt and pepper to taste.  Crumble in bacon and stir to combine.

Top with a pinch of cheese.  People.  A "pinch" is three fingers, not a half cup.  The cheese is not the star.  Don't over do it.

Add some onions, peppers, sausage, whatever you prefer!  I was not in the mood for all that jazz.

Have a wonderful Saturday!
