Cute Pink Teddy Bear Hat!

     So this is a cute Pink Teddy Bear Beanie I made for a friend's little girl, just in time for her 7th Birthday! I loved making it! It was not done with a pattern just me using my creative side and wanting to make a little girl smile.  Her mom said she didn't take it off all day after she received it! That can only make my heart smile from the inside out! Also was a perfect gift because they are headed up north this week to colder weather so it will come in handy.

Quick Chicken Tacos

Okay I apologize for the picture, it was the only thing that was left for me to take. My son devoured the left-overs!

So this is an easy way to prep chicken for taco's: serve it with your favorite toppings (suggestions of tomatoes, lettuce, sour cream, etc) We had it with flour tortillas, Spanish rice, and re-fried beans.

On to the recipe: This was all put in the crock-pot on high for 2-4 hrs.

  • 1lb of Chicken- sliced thin(bought it that way for Fajitas) then roughly chopped into pieces.
  • 1Cup of Chicken Stock
  • 1tsp of Cumin 
  • 1tsp of Chopped Garlic (I keep a jar in the fridge because it gives a great strong flavor)
  • 1tsp of Onion Powder
  • 1tsp to 1Tbsp of Chili Powder (depends on how you like your spicy-ness)
  • 1tsp to 1Tbsp of Chipotle Pepper Powder (once again depends on how you like it) 
  • Dash of Salt (remember Chicken Stock can be salty-test the sauce first)     
     Put everything in crock-pot for the broth to cook it in and taste.. check the broth for the flavor you want. Then put all the meat into the Crock-pot and cook for 2-4 hrs on high. If you wanted it shredded Chicken cook on Low and pull apart with a fork. My kiddos are picky so chopped is better for our family.

     Once it is cooked thoroughly, strain and place in serving platter. Even though I threw this all together for a quick dinner a few nights ago.. my 9yr old who is the pickiest eater ever-was like and I quote  "Mom this is really GOOD!" &  like I said I was going to have more pictures for you but I didn't even get to have seconds myself. My son bounced on it for an after school snack!
