Chik-Fil-A, Chicken Tacos, and another Movie Review

Friday morning after the boys woke up, we all headed to Chik-Fil-A for breakfast. We've been trying to eat a little healthier and eat out less. We've been doing really good, but we had two free coupons for Spicy Chicken biscuits, so we obviously had to go. Who could turn down free Chik-Fil-A? The boys can now eat anything except for honey, so it's fun letting them try new foods. We got them a fruit bowl and an order of 4 chicken mini's. They devoured them! I knew they'd love the biscuit/roll thing the chicken mini's are on, but I wasn't sure about the chicken. They gobbled it up!! My camera was dead, so all I got were these crappy camera phone pictures, but I had to post them because you can see them both shoving the food in their mouths. It was cute. And our spicy chicken biscuits were delicious!

After we got home, I ran out for an appointment while Greg kept the boys. They were in great moods, which made it so much easier. Maybe we're past the worst of the teething. (hopefully).

After the boys second nap, we all went out shopping. The weather is starting to cool off and I needed a couple of fall items. We went to a shopping center in town and went into Old Navy, Bed, Bath, and Beyond so I could show Greg the Tervis tumblers that are on my birthday list, and to the grocery store to get toppings for our slow cooker chicken tacos we planned for dinner.  We had planned on seeing "Something Borrowed", but we're actually borrowing it from somebody that Greg won't see until Monday, so we rented "Limitless" from Redbox.

We got home and fed the boys, bathed them, and put them to bed. We ate our Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos for dinner. I don't like chicken tacos, but there one of Greg's favorite foods, so I thought I'd be nice and make them for him. He loved them, he took a bite and said they tasted like the tacos he gets at mexican restaurants. I'll definitely make these for him again. Here's the recipe that I got from this website.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos
1 can Green chiles,, diced
1 jar salsa, (about 12 ounces; mild or spicy to taste)
1 teaspoon Ground cumin
1 whole onion, chopped
2 cloves Garlic, minced
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs

Place chicken in the bowl of a slow cooker. Top with salsa, diced green chiles, cumin, onion and garlic. Cover and set on low. Cook for 8 hours. Remove chicken from pot, shred, and return to juices. Spoon chicken into taco shells, with whatever toppings your family likes. Or use the meat to make burritos, tostadas or as a filling for enchiladas.  **We topped ours with shredded lettuce, tomatos, sour cream, cheese, and guacamole**

After dinner, we watched "Limitless" with Bradley Cooper and Robert DeNiro. It was really good. Greg though it was the best movie we've seen in awhile. It's about a drug that helps people be the best and smartest version of themselves, but obviously there's consequences.
