So I saw a book yesterday that was entitled "101 things to do with Zucchini", my only thought was - why would you want to do anything with zucchini other than make it into scrumptious, cinnamony, delicious zucchini bread? Whhhyyy?

Shredded Chicken Taco Salads

Picture this: 9 hour work day, less than 5 hours of sleep, grouchy husband, grouchy wife, bad hair day all come together for one culminating event: Dinner time. Before being enlightened I would say it's a subway night, but now I have the perfect solution. We're talking about 4 ingredients. 4. You can handle that right? Right. Two words for you: CROCK POT. Two more: Taco Salad. Are you with me? I am going to make this so easy for you. Here's the recipe that will change your life:

Southwestern Taco Chicken
4 chicken breasts
2 cups chunky salsa
2 cups frozen corn
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained

Dump all ingredients in a crock pot. Cook on high for 5 hours, in the last 30minutes shred the chicken and allow to soak up more juice. Serve over tortilla chips, with lettuce, cheese, limes, cilantro, etc...

So flippin simple huh?

you are the cheese to my macaroni

you are the horizon to my sky

you are the bacon to my eggs

you are the laces to my sneakers

you are the jelly to my peanut butter

you are the smile to my face

you are the gravy to my mashed potatoes

you are the bubbles to my bath

you are the milk to my cookie

you are the ink to my pen

you are the ketchup to my french fries

you are the water to my ocean

you are the icing on my cupcake

this is the first picture I ever saw of Adam. I was sold. Immediately.

Can I just gush for a minute?

I'm just super grateful for him.

And I think he's pretty neat.
