Last night I made breakfast nachos for dinner. Yep, it has been one of those kind of weeks...However, that means that you all will learn how to make amazing breakfast nachos in the near future!
This week have been really busy, but full of good things! On Monday, I did not have school so, of course, I went for a 12 mile run. It had snowed recently and so that 12 mile run left me feeling very sore. This led to me not wanting to run indoors for the rest of the week. Something about a treadmill just makes me so angry. So, I decided to bundle up and run my 2 other runs outside. I left early in the morning (5:30) and it was actually quite pleasant. I sort of like being the only one out and about in Chicago. It is peaceful and left me feeling calm and relaxed.
School has also been going pretty well this week. We are graphing sine and cosine in the precalculus group and in AP Calc we are looking into applications of integration. Volume is a tough one, but today one of the calc students took a quiz on it and killed it!!! I am so proud and excited for her. Planning for both of these courses has been a lot of work, but the students are so great and I really love working with them. It is totally worth the effort!
Otherwise, the condo stuff is still moving along. We are signing a boat-load of forms, showing our apartment to potential subletters, and trying to work out and manage all of our funds. It's stressful, but I am so excited to move towards closing on our place. I LOVE it!
So, one thing that has helped me get through this week has been the fact that I had a mountain of leftovers from that time I made Crock Pot Buffalo Chicken Sliders. This was one of the rare times that I made a non-vegetarian meal. This means that I have a ton of leftovers and no one to help me eat them. So, I have had some pretty delicious school lunches all this week. The chicken came out great and super tasty. Then, I mixed some Yogurt Blue Cheese Dressing into some Broccoli Slaw and I used that to put on top of my phenomenal chicken. YUM! I am obsessed with this recipe and I can't wait to make it again for some sort of sporting event! March Madness is quickly approaching and it would be perfect!
Crock Pot Buffalo Chicken Sliders with Blue Cheese Broccoli Slaw
6 chicken breasts
2 bottles buffalo sauce (I used Sweet Baby Rays)
1 1/2 packets of ranch seasoning
Broccoli Slaw, 1 bag
2-3 tbsp blue cheese dressing (I used a Yogurt/Light one)
whole wheat dinner rolls (24-36)
1. Place chicken, buffalo sauce, and ranch seasoning in your crock pot. Cook on low for 7-8 hours. After chicken is done, shred the chicken using two forks and leave on warm until you are ready to serve.
2. Pour the broccoli slaw into a large bowl and toss with the blue cheese dressing.
3. Serve with your whole wheat dinner rolls!
