Tonight the kiddo and I were supposed to be in the Christmas parade for my work but I don't think I want to now. I don't want to sit in the cold for two hours when I already feel like death. And yeah, I feel bad about telling her we were doing it and then not going but I think she's ok with it because I told her that we could put up our Christmas decorations tonight =) And that makes me happy! Side note to all new parents or people who might be parents some day *When you plan on doing something exciting with your kids, don't tell them just incase you back out. It doesn't always end well*
I know that all
I started off with this recipe but really modified it to make it my own.
- Chicken breats
- 2 tbsp minced garlic
- 3 tbsp ranch dressing
- Parmesan cheese ( I don't know how much I just used whatever looked good)
- Bag of mild cheddar
- 1 3/4 cup milk
- More milk as to liking
- Half bottle Frank's Red Hot Wing Sauce
- Chalula (hot sauce)
You put the chicken breasts, garlic, dressing, 1 3/4 cup milk, wing sauce, and parmesan cheese in the crockpot on high for 3-4 hours or until your chicken falls apart with barely any effort on your part.
After I shredded the chicken I added my noodles (uncooked of course, this is about easyness) and my cheddar cheese. And more milk. And then some more, and a little bit more. Basically you add it until you think it's the right consistency. I added my hot sauce in at this time to. Then continue to cook it on high until the noodles are tender. Tada! Then stuff your face.
Pretty easy, like I said. Now for my changes
- I'm not adding ranch next time
- I'm not using shredded cheese, I'm using velveeta
- More garlic or something of the sort
It just wasn't cheesy enough for me. My macaroni and cheese has to be super super super cheesy. And I couldn't taste the ranch so basically it was un-needed calories and I think it took some of the spicy away.
And my last tip...Crockpot liners. Yep, I just went there. Seriously it's like a litter box liner but for your crockpot. The crockpot doesn't ever get dirty. WINNING.
After dinner it was time for the Christmas parade in the town I live in. It was actually decent and had some pretty neat floats. It was better than the Maple Leaf parade this year! Except for Santa. They had a terrible Santa. He was skinny and you could tell his beard and hair were fake. You could see his black hair poking out. Seriously, in this town we have enough overweight old guys that look like Santa. Pick a better one next year! I'd show you the only picture I took but I don't have my phone cord. Maybe later!
