The worst time to give up celebrity gossip is the week before the Oscars! What was I thinking!?!?! Also, I have never realized how much I am dependent on facebook. I just go to it to pass time. I had to delete the app off my phone for the week.
I am having an Oscar party and I am so excited! I have wanted to have one forever and I will post about it as I get ready! Also, be sure to head over here on Sunday night as I will be live-blogging it as usual.
One of my new tricks to keep us eating cheaply and healthfully is to buy a whole raw chicken over the weekend and throw it in the crockpot on Monday morning. We usually have the dark meat straight off the chicken with veggies that night and then I chop up the breast meat and put it in a pasta dish or soup or even make some chicken salad.
There are lots of ways to make chicken in the crockpot but the easiest and tastiest way I have found it just to slice up and onion and throw it in the bottom and then peel (but don’t chop) an entire head’s worth of garlic- it sounds like too much but it isn’t. Throw some butter under the skin and leave on low until done. I don’t know how long it takes really I just take it out when I get home from work.
If I was a really good person, I would throw all the leftover bones and stuff back in the crock pot with water and some celery, carrot, onion and herbs and have a pot full of stock when I got home the next day from work. I am not a really good person. I also do not have the freezer space for such endeavors.
