Slow Cooker Garlic & Brown Sugar Chicken

I do not like going to BevMo for their 5 cent sale - and not liking any of the 8 bottles I bought. The wine gods would kill me but I’ve been mixing them in order to create the best possible taste. I simply must have a great wine to go with my american cheese, cheez-its, and peanut butter filled pretzels,and juicy fruit. (gotta keep my snacks classy yo!)…

Yes I sometimes chew gum and drink wine at the same time.

In fact there are many things I like to do while drinking wine. Shoot, I’m probably drinking wine right now and you wndluot eevn konw it. I can tpye and dnirk at the smae tmie.

Joking Joking..

So back to the discussion, things made more fun by wine.

1. Everything
2. Refer back to number 1

There now you have learned something today. Also did I tell you my little one is walking? I might have already told you but I’m way too lazy to look at my last posts to find out. He started his little zombie walk and he hasn’t look fact he hadn’t looked down either and that means plenty of busted lips and bruises.

And if he was 21 and could have wine then all of those busted lips and bruises would be much more fun. See how I am connecting things here?

We have teeth too! Him and me, just in case you were wondering. He sprouted 4 of them at once and now he’s eating everything in sight. This makes me ponder though, how can he not see any toy below his feet while walking (hence the tripping) but he can spot a ¼ of a 3 year old Cheerio out of the corner of his eye from space?

And space would totally be better with wine if you ask me.

Anyways, I made this easy Slow Cooker  Brown Sugar & Garlic Chicken over the weekend. I served it over brown rice, topped with parsley. It was quite tasty and did its job, what job do you ask – well it sat next to my glass of wine like a good dinner.

Yay! You're back! I needed some funny in my morning:) Couldn't agree with you more about wine. So bummed we don't have BevMo in Austin. 5 cents??? I'd lose my freaking mind. And congrats on the kiddo making such strides!

Wine is a good thing! Your little guy is growing up fast and is keeping you busy, I'm sure. The chicken sounds great and perfect for a glass or two of wine!
