I normally don’t believe in signs. Unless they are really, really obvious.
I’ve had this recipe ready to blog since last weekend, but I’ve been a complete waste of life this week. A crippled one.
Tuesday morning, Nick had to get up early. Normally when he gets up early I roll over, take it as an opportunity to take up the entire bed, and go back to sleep. But this Tuesday I was feeling particularly motivated, and I decided to get up, lace up the ole sneakers, and head out for a run before work. Normally I take the iPhone so I can listen to music and use the GPS to track my mileage, but for some reason, I decided to leave it at home.
So there I was, not even at the end of the street yet, thinking how nice and cool and peaceful it was and how I should really do this more often when suddenly— SPLAT!—
Clearly, this was an obvious sign that getting up early to work out is bad.
Always. Hit. Snooze.
Luckily, that day was the one day I decided to leave the iPhone at home. Even an Otterbox wouldn’t have survived that crash. After I peeled myself off the pavement and checked to make sure there weren’t any nosy neighbors peeking through their blinds witnessing my gracefulness, I hobbled home and spent my extra hour before work cleaning bits of asphalt out of my wounds.
I almost fainted in the shower and then cried when I poured on the hydrogen peroxide. I’m a big baby and I’m beginning to doubt I will ever survive through childbirth. Do they give you the option of putting you out for the whole thing? No? Anyone know any good storks?
Ugh. It hasn’t been a great week.
Luckily, I’ve had some pretty phenomenal leftovers to eat all week, since my wounded hands can’t do much in the kitchen!
Crock Pot Chicken Curry
(adapted from One Ordinary Day)
- 10 bone-in chicken thighs (about 4-5 lbs), skin removed
- 2 cups chunky salsa
- 1 onion, diced
- 2 tbsp curry powder
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- Cooked rice, for serving
Place chicken in the bottom of a slow cooker. In a bowl, combine salsa, onion, curry powder and cayenne. Spread over top of chicken.
Cook on low 8-10 hours.
Carefully remove chicken from crock pot onto a plate. Remove bones (they should just fall out).
Add yogurt to the crock pot and stir to combine.
Add the chicken back into the slow cooker. Toss gently to coat the chicken and break it up a little bit.
Serve over rice with your veggie of choice.
If you’ve been reading for a while, you know I’m new to liking curry. Well… I loved this. Definitely the best thing I’ve made in the crock pot thus far! I thought the salsa might be weird, but I was so easy and it really worked! YUM!
