The Great Crockpot Dump


You guys, I'm super fat with child. And I still have more than three months. And people of all ages are making pretty rude remarks like "holy cow, are you having twins?" or "you're not due till September? Is the doctor worried?" or "I'm only three weeks behind you and I'm not even really showing yet." In rebellion, I made a batch of delicious chocolate chip cookies and Van and I sat on the floor and ate them. He likes chocolate chips. Also in rebellion, I've been cooking like this . . .

I dump some of the sweet thai chili sauce (pictured above and also featured in Kim's Fresh Thai Spring Roll recipe that is not posted) on frozen chicken in my crockpot and put it on low (my crockpot cooks really hot) for six hours. It was actually really good. We ate it with rice and pineapple (the pineapple was an accident but it was so good on top of the chicken).

Today I dumped teriyaki sauce in there with some chicken. Tomorrow I'll probably pour the rest of the apricot jam and pickles in and see what happens. If you have any other ideas for me, please post them.

I love you all and I have cottage cheese. I just thought you should know.

P.S. I went to the doctor today. She said I was fine.

I've done the same thing with Russian dressing and apricot preserves...very yummy. The list goes on; I'll try pickles next time. I love you and love your unborn son.

It's 6:30 AM but I still burst out laughing when I read your opening line. Hilarious! You've won my loyalty.

Dee, I didn't take a picture of it last night but I made my famous crock pot dump for dinner. We have it at least once a week. Brent's kinda in love with it. Chicken, pace picante and cream cheese. How easy is that?! Maybe you all have made that before...I don't know.

ooops! I forgot to say that I shred the chicken and use it for tacos.
