Yummy Crock pot BBQ Chicken..........

We had this tonight served over baked potatoes and it was good. Here is how I did it:
I took 3 chicken breasts, 1/2 bottle of good BBQ sauce, 1/4 cup of red wine and olive oil dressing, 2 tbsp. brown sugar and 1 tbsp worstershire sauce. Then I threw the breasts in the crock pot, mixed the other ingredients together and poured the mixture on top. I wanted it all a little sweeter so I drizzled some molasses and agave nectar on top. I also added sliced onion and a little garlic. I cooked it on high for 3 hours. Then I shredded the chicken with 2 forks, added another drizzle or too of agave nectar, added a touch of flour to thicken a bit, stirred and cooked it on low for another hour. We had it over baked potato but you cooked make a sandwich out of it too.
Either way it was yummy!

P.S. It would be good with a little heat added to it too!

Garlic is popping up!

My garlic is popping up - spring is around the corner? :)
I will see if my husband can take a picture of them and post them. Planting seems to be around the corner. I wish it would stop raining long enough for me to clean up some of my gardening areas.

Happy dreaming of spring planting!

New Year!

Happy New Year! I will try to be better at updating the blog in the New Year. I baked lots of treats this season. I made truffles for the first time - messy! As well as pound cake and cookies.
As for gardening will be in full swing again before you know it!
I did try beets this winter but the pretty good freeze we had got to those and my some of my carrots before I could. I did get my winter salad mix and lettuce before it froze though! Yummy!

Well....I will have to post pics soon or have my hubby do it for me. ;)
