Slow and Steady Wins the Taco Race

All day at work I was dreaming about coming home to an apartment filled with the smell of tacos. Before leaving in the morning, I placed a pound of lean ground chicken breast meat in the slow cooker on low with a packet of reduced sodium taco seasoning and 2/3 cup of water. The chicken was moist and full of taco-flavored goodness when I walked through the door.

I couldn’t resist snagging a bite before Ryan and I took Sadie on a walk.

One more bite…

Sadie was going nuts by then, so Ryan made her “shake” and then we were out the door on our evening walk. She’s such a lil’ smartie pants. (I’m a little Sadie-obsessed, so millions of Sadie pictures will show up in this blog, I’m sure.)



With every step I took on the walk it seemed like my tummy was grumbling “tacos… tacos…” Needless to say I was more than happy to dive into this plate when we got back:
