Basil & Pulled Crock Pot Chicken (2 ways)

Happy July! I can’t believe we’re already (almost) to the 4th. Hope you have fun plans to celebrate. Lots of pictures/recipes to share, so I’ll try to let the pictures do most of the talking.

My parents came down on Saturday night to go to Basil with Josh and I.


We started out with their delicious Basil rolls.  


For dinner, I had the Vegetables delight:


and Josh had the Pad Thai:


Josh’s parents watched Kay, so I got to eat with two hands! Amazing:


On Sunday, we had our friends Bryan and Mandi over for dinner. In preparation, I got up early on Sunday morning and threw dinner in the crock pot for both Sunday and Monday night.

BBQ pineapple chicken (for Sunday):


Buffalo pickle chicken (for Monday):


Both turned out great.

Alongside the BBQ chicken, I threw together a salad with spinach, iceberg, avocado, peaches, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. I topped the salad with a simple lemon/olive oil dressing:


cheese and pickles to top the bbq chicken sandwiches:


Roasted local squash and zucchini:


Mandi brought along some beautiful fruit:


And I made cookies for dessert:


We had a blast hanging out!!

In other news…it won’t stop raining here.  


We’ve had weeks and weeks of downpours. Bah!

And in more happy news, Kaylin loves oatmeal as much as I do now!



Whats been going on with you? What are you doing for the 4th??
