crafts and cooking.

sunday i used the last of the eggs for egg salad with aidan, so we decided to make caterpillars out of the crates. after they colored them, i put on eyes and used pipe cleaners for antennae. :)

its so rich i can only have a tiny piece at a time. LOL

we also made pulled chicken sandwiches for dinner. which were delish. i dont have pics of that, but here's what i did.

in a crockpot, i put:
2 defrosted chicken breasts (i could have put more, but i knew the kids would likely not eat this for dinner)
16oz (2 little cans) of tomato sauce
1/4 c. cider vinegar (to be fair, i think it used white wine vinegar? heck i dunno)
2 tbsp. worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp. dry mustard
sprinkled some cayenne and garlic powder over it

cooked for like 4hrs? then shredded it up and let it sit on "warm" for another hour or so.

put on a bun with BBQ sauce and pickles :) delish.

today we made blueberry muffins for breakfast.
