What We Ate Wednesday! (On Yellow Heart Art's Turf!)

This needs to be said.

I, Leonora Jennifer, have a mega girl crush on my home girl Amy.

Amy and I have been bloggie BFFs since the dawn of time (well, my definition of "the dawn of time" is January, but just go with it)

One time there was a lil etsy shop that had only 2 sales. This little etsy shop had big dreams, high hopes and a ton of anxiety. Some lovely lady came along and gave "the little shop that could" 2 more sales. Since then the lady and the shop owner have been homies for lyfe.

and this just in: These 2 gangstas get to party like rock stars in 2 weeks when I go to disney! Can ya tell I'm a wee bit stoked? I'm not sure how one party likes a rock star in a place where you legally can't die. (No, i'm serious, disney says you can not die on their property. They will drag you off their grounds and declare you dead there. Weird or awesome? You decide.)
Now that I left you with that incredibly unsettling yet completely random factoid please enjoy some more good eats where Amy guest blogs her "What We Ate Wednesday" Post over here on Yellow Heart Art's turf!

Personally I just think she feels bad for the bubs and wants me to attempt to cook an easy peasy dish for him. Apparently toasting some bread and throwing butter on it isn't a "gourmet meal" (who knew?) (sorry bub)

aaaand GO!

(OH HEY! Almost forgot. In case you missed it there is a giveaway goin' on here for FAH-REE cupcakes! eff are ee ee that spells F-R-E-E. Enter here!)

(ok, Amy, you can really go now…)

Yo fellow Yellow Heart Art lovers!
Its me Amy from Buggie and Jellybean, my little nook of the internet where I share
my day to day life of raising Buggie and Bean, the little DIY's that fill my day, and snippets of my life as SAHMomma.
Hey look its me!

Today I am honored, privileged, blessed, overly excited, thrilled, and I ran out of adjectives to be guest blogging for Leo, while she gets her new digs together. Every Wednesday on my blog we have "What we ate Wednesday", see because I was not able to participate in "What I wore Wednesday" since my days consist of moving from one pair of sweat pants to another, I could share what we ate. Today I am sharing a super de duper easy crock pot recipe, Santa Fe Chicken.

Here is what you need:
- 1.5 lbs of chicken breast
- 15oz can of black beans
- 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes
- 8oz bag of frozen corn
- 1/4cup chopped fresh cilantro {or 2tbsp dried}
- 14.5 oz can chicken broth
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- salt
- package of yellow rice
For toppings:
- avocado
- sour cream
- shredded Mexican cheese
- a lime

Please over look my crusty crock pot, mkay.
Ready for this recipe, it might put you over the edge with all the steps, ha:
- combine all the ingredients minus the rice and toppings ingredients in the bottom of the crockpot, stir well.
- place chicken on top
- cover and set for either low 10hrs or high 6.
*PHEW* that was intense, hope it was not too advance.

Then with one hour left in the cooking, remove the chicken shredded and add it back in to the pot. Cook your rice based on the timing of the cooking.

Then to serve scoop some rice in a bowl, top with Santa Fe Chicken, some sour cream, cheese, avocado and a lime wedge.

And sit back and enjoy that meal you SLAVED all day over!
This recipe was adapted from Marta's from Haus of Girls.
