Crockpot Chiken Taco Bowls



I'm a big fan of left overs for those evening when I just do not have time to cook. Sadly the leftovers are finished and I needed a meal to make. Although my day has not been busy totally busy (though it should have...but I think my body just rebels to work), because I really needed some long over due rest and errand time- I wanted a "non-involved" meal. So, this morning when I woke up I decided to pick a meal from my list for the week that required use of a crockpot. For those of you who do not have a crockpot- you should really get one! The concept of throwing things into a big "pot" and cooking it for hours (ie. while your gone at school or work or just being lazy around the house)- and voila you get a meal, is just amazing to me :) I actually have two crockpots- one smaller and one larger- depending on the recipe and the amount I want to make.

I do have to say- that today was fun for me. I finally found a full service car wash in College Station- and it is half the price of car washes in Houston! YAY! Well with how affordable it is here- I can go every month! So I am definitely excited about that. My car has been neglected so this was was long overdue. Also- I got this really nice plush microfiber steering wheel cover...I'm thrilled about that too :) It'll come in handly tomorrow as the hubster and I are attending the wedding festivities for one of our good friends (he is actually the person who introduced the hubby and I).


I forgot to garnish with shredded cheese before photographing.
