All I wanted to do was make some barbecue chicken in my crock pot like my Mom used to make. I found a recipe in a magazine that looked good and easy and those are some pretty good indicators if a dish will be good. So one night last week, I got the dish all prepared in the crock pot and put it in the fridge. Ed was an amazing husband and agreed to come home on his lunch hour so he could turn on the crock pot for me.
I came home after work expecting the delicious aroma to be overwhelming.
I had told everyone at work about how awesome my barbecue chicken was going to be.
And I came home and was underwhelmed. Disappointed.
There was an aroma, it just wasn’t strong. It didn’t live up to my expectations.
I shredded the chicken and ate it. With more barbecue sauce. The boys stole some off of my plate. Ed had some when he got home.
And so….lesson has been learned. When you want barbecue chicken like your mother used to make, ask your mother how she makes it! You might even learn something! And, your house just might smell as delicious as you’re expecting!
You know what’s even worse than underwhelming barbecue chicken? I used to have a cooking blog.
