I really don't have anything super exciting to say today because I planned on posting about two GREAAAAT recipes I've tried in the past few days. Only that won't work out because one tasted like feet and one made me feel like my head was detached from my body. Barrel of fun, huh?
I finally tried a cauliflower pizza crust, after seeing all my friends pinning it on Pinterest. I need to realize that most of the time, people pin stuff and never try it. They pin the idea of it, I think. So just because tons of people pin it, that doesn't make it good. It was ALOT of trouble to make and took forever to prep. It tasted like mashed up, uncooked cauliflower and was a total waste of perfectly good cheese.
Yesterday, I tried Crockpot Buffalo Chicken. I won't even link up with the recipe because I don't want you to try it. It's that Pinterest recipe that calls for frozen chicken breasts, a whole freakin bottle of buffalo sauce and ranch dressing mix. I used half a bottle because that just seemed absurd to me. It was a little dry due to less liquid but it still looked and smelled amazing. Plus it was easy! Dump and go.
I got home 9 hours after turning on my crockpot and shredded the chicken. I served it on a lettuce wrap and discovered I had no ranch dressing. No problem, I thought. Less calories to use and I love buffalo sauce on anything. Well, I stand corrected. A small amount of buffalo sauce on chicken is one thing. Buffalo sauce seeping into every square centimenter of my chicken ain't good yall. Oh. em. gee. I took three bites and threw it away. Not only was it too hot but the sodium made me instantly feel sick. I just couldn't do it. I ate a banana and peanut butter instead because I wasn't all that hungry to begin with. I would suggest you not try this recipe. Had my husband been home, of course he would've gobbled it right up, but since it was just me, in to the trash can it went.
I promise to have better recipes to share with ya'll one day! They normally don't turn out this bad so I'll get back to the drawing board!
In other news, tomorrow is group run #3 with our Running Clinic and I am sad to report that I'm kinda dreading it. That won't stop me though! I have way more poundage to get rid of and running surely does the trick. Leigh Ann and I will do our normal Saturday run bright and early so we can head off to tailgating and
More on the weekend tomorrow though! Hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday.
