Salsa, Carnitas and WIAW

Somehow I cannot believe it is Wednesday.  And this is coming from a girl who on Monday thought it felt like Friday.  I tell you, some weeks you just long for the weekend right from the beginning.

Eating this week has been minimal after all of our meals out in California last week.  Breakfast was a simple cereal with Cracklin' Oats.  It tastes like oatmeal cookies and is always a treat.


We had boxed mac and cheese, steamed broccoli and some left over chicken from a store bought roasted bird. Simple, simple, simple but very good.

Dinner was slow cooker carnitas.  You just have to love throwing something in a pot in the morning and having a delicious meal waiting for you come dinner time.  This recipe was so simple and super yummy.

We topped it off with some of this salsa that is from a copy cat recipe from Chili's.  I don't eat there often but I love the chips and salsa.  Best. Snack. Food. Ever.
