Notes

I have not been in the cooking mood that I usually am. I truly think it is due to the lack of space in my kitchen. However, we may be moving here soon so I am excited. Anyway back to my point (I know I had one). I have never really used my crock pot much due to the fact when I was pregnant I bought one of those frozen crock meals, well it was the most horrid thing we have ever ate. Therefore, my husband just thought that is how all crock food tasted. It came to me that I have a crock pot and that it’s pretty easy from what I hear, I was sure I could make my husband a crock pot believer. So as you see I have been using it every night for the past few nights and I continue to. The food I have made so far has been nothing less of amazing and so easy. And guess what? He believes!

This butter chicken OH MY GOSH you all. I was so impressed with myself that I could not even believe I made this. It was as if someone snuck it in from an Indian restaurant. The chicken was so soft it was actually shredding.
